Jay-Z has explained his reasons for covering Wonderwall at this year's Glastonbury Festival.
The rapper, who opened his headline performance with his own rendition of the Oasis track, said he felt it was "a cool way to start the show".
His version of the song was in response to Noel Gallagher's comments that having Jay-Z at the event was "wrong".
He said: "I have a sense of humour like a Brit, so I thought people would appreciate that."
He went on: "Noel Gallagher was one of the biggest detractors, so I figured that was a cool way to start the show."
The hip-hop star also admitted feeling nervous before he went onstage, despite pulling in one of the biggest crowds of the weekend.
"It went amazing," he told mtv.com. "It was a historic night for Glastonbury and for myself. It's the first time a hip-hop act had headlined.
"It was one of those nervous moments right before I went on, and I haven't had that feeling in a long time. In front of 100,000 people, it was this great thing."
He added: "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.
"We get sounds from all over the world. It's the universal language. There's brilliant jazz - Miles Davis. Brilliant rock - Coldplay. And there's brilliant rap - Jigga."
The rapper's headline appearance at the festival has since helped boost his record sales with 2004 single 99 Problems set to go into the Top 25 of the UK singles chart this weekend.
