Jay-Z wants to headline Glastonbury again.

The '99 Problems' rapper would be happy to return to the British music festival following his controversial performance this year.

He said: "Of course I'd come back. It was incredible. I'm glad it went that way, because the world was watching.

"It's not about genres. It's about good music and bad music."

The 38-year-old star opened his Glastonbury act with a cover of 'Wonderwall', a deliberate swipe at Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher who publicly criticised the decision to book him as a headline act.

He also broadcast some of the rocker's derogatory comments on giant video screens before showing clips of celebrities and royalty made to look like they were endorsing his performance.

He added to MTV: "I have a sense of humour like a Brit', so I thought people would appreciate that. Noel Gallagher was one of the biggest detractors, so I figured that was a cool way to start the show."

Noel has since said his comments about the star were "misrepresented".
