Janet Jackson has seemingly edited the Glastonbury poster to name herself as the festival's main headline act.

Fans were left entertained after the US singer, who was announced as part of the 2019 lineup last week, placed her name ahead of the acts that appear above her on the official poster, including The Killers, The Cure, Stormzy and Kylie Minogue. 

Jackson shared the revised poster on Twitter, writing: “Can’t wait to see you UK.”

Sharing the full story, not just the headlines

This year's lineup was announced last week. Artists confirmed to appear along with the three headliners include George Ezra, Liam Gallagher, Miley Cyrus, Vampire Weekend, Two Door Cinema Club, Bastille, Christine and the Queens, Hozier, Sigrid, Years & Years, Lauryn Hill, Janelle Monae and Wu-Tang Clan.

The festival will mark Jackson's festival debut in the UK. You can see the differences in the posters below.

While some Twitter users were left confused by the new version of the poster, many found it hilarious.

Jackson will perform following the controversial Channel 4 documentary Leaving Neverland, which made sex abuse allegations against her late brother Michael.

The Jackson family recently said she has not publicly defended the late pop star because she does not want to give more “energy” to the allegations.
