Oasis just lost One Direction and Adele as fans, and the band’s cofounder, Noel Gallagher, couldn’t care less. In a new interview, Noel slammed 1D and the ‘Hello’ singer, calling them ‘c*nts’ before wondering why they’re famous in the first place! And that’s not even the worst thing he said.
Noel Gallagher, 48, and obscenity go hand-in-hand so it’s surprising when he DOESN’T swear during an interview. However, the Oasis co-founder went above and beyond his usually obscene self, saying that he thinks the boys of One Direction will be in “rehab by the time they’re 30,” before trashing Adele, 27, and the rest of the pop world in a NSFW rant!
“Fame’s wasted on these c*nts today,” Noel said in an interview featured in the December issue of Esquire. As a man known for being brutally honest, he holds nothing back about the current state of music. “Does anyone give a f*ck about what any of these current pop stars are up to?” Oh, and it doesn’t stop there.
“Who gives a sh*t what f*cking One Direction do? C**ks*ckers, all of them in rehab by the time they’re 30,” Noel said. Clearly, he’s not pre-ordering Made In The A.M. anytime soon. Nor is Noel lining up to get the first copy of Adele’s next album. “Really? Adele, what? Blows my f*cking mind.”
“Nobody cares!” Noel adds. “Fame’s wasted on them, with their f*cking in-ear monitors and their electronic cigarettes. And their fragrances that they’re bringing out for Christmas. You f*cking d*cks.” From there, Noel claimed “there are no rock’n’roll people anymore.” Noel also blasted Alex Turner, Miles Kane and “the guys from Royal Blood. They’ve got the f*cking skinny jeans and the boots and all that eyeliner. I’ve got a cat that’s more rock’n’roll than all of them put together.”
For those asking “Noel who?” right about now, he and brother Liam Gallagher were in one of the biggest bands in the world during the mid-1990s. Oasis released albums Definitely Maybe and (What’s The Story) Morning Glory? and had hits with songs like “Wonderwall,” “Champagne Supernova” and “Live Forever.” The band split in 2009, due to tension between Liam and Noel. Yes, despite that joyful interview with Esquire, it turns out Noel is not the easiest guy to get along with.
After scorching pretty much everyone on the music scene today, is there someone that Noel likes? Surprisingly enough, the Oasis leader is a fan of Yeezy. “You can watch [Kanye West] on the MTV Awards and you think, ‘You can f*cking stay, you’re alright.‘” This isn’t the first time Noel showed love to Yeezy, as he told RollingStone he thinks Kanye’s “Black Skinhead” track was “f*cking out there…it’s got a great low-fi, punk vibe to it.”
What do you think about Noel’s comments, HollywoodLifers? Were they out of line or spot on?
