While known for being very outspoken, Noel Gallagher, 50, didn’t hold back when chatting with Andy Bush on Absolute Radio.
The Oasis singer managed to slam musicians his age and Harry Styles in one swoop. “People of my age have let themselves go,” he said. “They’re fat, balding idiots with fading tattoos. They sit in their garage and write s*** like ‘Sign of the Times’ for Harry Styles.”
“Quite frankly, my cat could have written it in about 10 minutes,” he added about the former One Directioner’s single.
While the rest of the world – including his wife – is loving Styles’ song, he’s not so sure he agrees with her opinion. “I don’t mind the song, my wife was falling over herself, ‘Have you heard Harry Styles’ new song? It’s like Prince,'” he told the radio show. “I was like ‘Without even hearing it, I can assure it’s not like Prince!'”
And the disses didn’t stop there as Gallagher continued to slam the former boy band member despite Styles being a credited writer on all 10 tracks of his debut album. “You’re not telling me Harry Styles is currently sat in his room somewhere writing a song,” he said. “With any joy, he’ll be surrounded by a lot of 17-year-old girls, do you know what I mean?… But I can assure you he doesn’t got an acoustic guitar out trying to write a middle-eight for someone. You know what I mean?”
Gallagher is set to support U2 with his band High Flying Birds in Dublin.
