Kanye West to brighten up V Festival?

Kanye West is reportedly planning to bring some colour to this weekend's V Festival.

The rapper has hired MAC Cosmetics to paint his dancers' faces at this weekend's event, reports the Daily Mirror.

The move follows his appearance at last year's Brit Awards, when he arrived on stage accompanied by an army of gold-painted dancers.

A source told the paper: "All the girls will have the most amazing geometric pink and blue designs on their faces with a heavy dose of glitter to complete the effect."

Kanye will be playing a 50-minute set on the V Stage, performing at Chelmsford on the Saturday and Staffs on the Sunday in what's bound to be one of the weekend's highlights. 

And that's the view of the man himself. Earlier this week he was reported as saying he's, "one of the best rappers of all time".

That may be debatable, however there is no denying that V remains a festival close to his heart. He previously played the event in 2004 as his career was taking off.
