Kanye West insists he has "made it" now Amy Winehouse has called him a c***.
Writing on his blog, the rapper responded to comments apparently made by Amy on stage during her Saturday night set (28.06.08) at the Glastonbury festival.
The post simply read: "This just in... Amy Winehouse hates me!!! Now I've really made it!!! LOL!!!" It then quoted a story about Amy's onstage claims.
According to Britain's NME magazine, Amy - who played before Jay-Z's headline set - said: "Are there any black people in the crowd? Let's hear it for Jay-Z. The man has got b******s to come here, and play the tunes you don't even know you remember. Imagine if it was a c*** like Kanye West. 'c***s Like Kanye' - that should be his next album title."
Jay-Z responded, saying: "Amy said something about Kanye late on in her set but I didn't hear it. I don't agree with it. He's my brother and the biggest artist on Roc-A-Fella right now. I guess I should hook them up, because he's a great guy, too. I don't know what the problem is. I don't know where that came from."
Numerous fans posted messages on Kanye's blog criticising the 'Rehab' singer for her conduct.
DJStructure wrote: "Coming off drugs if you've been on them forever is crazy. She's gonna be nuts for a while, I can't believe they expect her to be 100 per cent and perform coming out of the hospital less than 24 hours ago. Oh well. F*** it."
Amy, 24, sparked controversy after she punched a fan when she climbed off stage to sing in front of the crowd at the end of her set.
