So she’s made herself the headliner.
In a tweet revealing her joy at the booking for this summer, Jackson posted a snap of the poster, which was unveiled by organisers last Friday.

But music fans were quick to note that Jackson – or, of course, more likely someone in her team – has shifted her name a few slots to the left. Making her, and not The Killers, the headline act.

Twitter, of course, found the whole business hilarious.
Looks like @JanetJackson didn’t like where she was billed at @GlastoFest so she took the matter into her own hands. 😂 pic.twitter.com/LueybQ96OM
