Glastonbury: not big enough for Madonna

If we're to believe the Mail, Madonna has junked plans to show her Kabbalahesque Malawian documentary at Glastonbury. Why?

‘Madonna hoped the film could be shown on the Saturday and there was talk of a question and answer session,’ says a source.

‘But poor ticket sales for the festival put her off. After talks with organisers it was decided the festival was not the right venue to showcase the film.’

The "poor ticket sales" put her off, did they? Or - as would seem more likely - the organisers failed to treat a vanity charity project as being worthy of the main stage and perhaps suggested a trestle table in the Green Field instead?
