54-year-old singer-songwriter Prince, who has also gone by the names Jamie Starr, Christopher, Alexander Nevermind, Joey Coco and, most notably, The Artist Formerly Known As Prince, has now been linked in tabloid print with a top slot at Glastonbury Festival 2013.

Prince has sold over 80 million records worldwide and had major hits with the singles 'Purple Rain', 'Raspberry Beret' and 'Kiss'. He released his thirty-fourth studio album '20Ten' in, wait for it, 2010.

According to reports in the Daily Star the singer was close to signing up for Glastonbury in 2011, but the head-honchos, 77-year-old Michael Eavis and daughter Emily, allegedly, had to "pull the plug after the eccentric star refused to confirm his attendance more than also are six weeks in advance".

Prince has been booked for three shows at the Montreux Jazz Festival in July, not long after Glastonbury, and these new tabloid rumours suggest he may be eyeing up a top slot at Worthy Farm this June.

No headline acts have been officially confirmed for Glastonbury Festival 2013, but the Arctic Monkeys look almost certain to feature.

The Rolling Stones, Lady Gaga and Mumford & Sons have also been rumoured for a top slot at the festival, however we're not expecting to hear about the full line-up until an official announcement is made in early April.

Glastonbury Festival 2013 takes place on Worthy Farm, Somerset from June 26-30.

Amongst the acts officially confirmed for Glastonbury are US rapper Nas and Malian singer-songwriter Rokia Traoré.

All tickets for Glastonbury Festival 2013, estimated to be approximately 140,000 in number, sold out after one hour and 40 minutes last year. A resale date has been confirmed for Sunday 21 April, when a limited number of cancelled tickets will go back on sale.
