Missy Elliott overdoes it

What is it with rappers, anyway? Always turning up late for their own shows. Well, Missy Elliott, you might be able to get away with that sort of thing when you play a solo gig, but not at a festival - especially London's not-exactly-hippified ultra-corporate Wireless Festival.

The rapper delivered, by all accounts, a storming set yesterday, including hits like 'Get UR Freak On' and 'Work It.' But she started half an hour late, forcing the organisers to pull the plug before she'd finished.

It all made for a bad-tempered start to what sounds like a bad-tempered evening, with LCD Soundsystem frontman James Murphy later lambasting the crowd for bottle-throwing. Bit of a change from the love-in at Glastonbury last weekend...
