Having watched from the wings as husband Jay-Z stormed through his much-talked-about set at this year's festival, Beyonce has revealed that she'd like to play Glastonbury 2009.

Speaking to Sky News, the singer said: "It would be really amazing… I would love to do it".

The former Destiny's Child star, who had been tipped to guest during Jay-Z's performance, expressed pride in her other half's decision to headline what some people, notably Noel Gallagher, thought should remain a rock-orientated festival.

"I thought it was brilliant. Jay had all the controversy - but he came out and he did good," she said.

Surprisingly, the one thing that did disappoint Beyonce was that the Glastonbury site wasn't turned into a quagmire: "I had my wellies and I got my outfit organised but it didn't rain and I wanted the mud!".

Ah well - there's always next year.
