Beyonce has revealed that she is nervous ahead of her headlining slot at Britain's Glastonbury festival, but credits husband Jay-Z with inspiring her to take risks in her career.
Jay-Z performed at the festival in 2008, but his inclusion drew criticism from stars including Noel Gallagher, who insisted hip hop had no place at the event.
However his set was hailed as a triumph, and Beyonce has now signed up to perform at the event this year.
Beyonce tells Dazed & Confused, "I would have never thought about doing Glastonbury if I wasn't there the night that he played. I am nervous. But right now, this part of my life is all about embracing change and going to the next level, taking risks and showing my bravery."
