Alex Turner - Alex Turner 'Sorry' For Take That Feud

Arctic Monkeys frontman Alex Turner has apologised to Take That for aiming an insult at them five years ago, admitting he was deliberately trying to stir up controversy.
The British rock band caused a stir in 2006 when Turner branded the Back for Good hitmakers "f**king b**llocks" at the Q Awards in London.
The singer/guitarist has now reached out to Gary Barlow and his four fellow singers in a bid to end the feud, confessing he was wrong to criticise the pop stars and has since grown to appreciate their music.
Turner tells Nme magazine, "We love Gary Barlow. I think I really offended him a few years ago, though, which I'm, er, sorry about. I didn't understand it then! Didn't know what were (sic) going on! Trying to ruffle some feathers."
