Noel Gallagher is never one for mincing his words and the outspoken singer’s latest target is Adele and her million selling album 25. The former Oasis frontman has described the album as 'cheesy music for f***ing grannies’, during an interview with Music Feeds.
25 is not on Noel Gallagher’s Christmas wish list.
When asked what he thought of Adele, Gallagher said: "If someone wants to know what I think of Adele, I’ll f***ing tell them… I just don’t see what all the fuss is about. I don’t like her music. I think it’s music for f***ing grannies.”
He then added that he wasn't trying to be controversial instead he was just speaking his mind. “If I get asked a question on anything, I give a straight answer,” he said. “Not because I have any sort of agenda or because I’m trying to whip up any kind of hysteria.”.
“It is interesting that no-one ever talks about my love of U2 and Coldplay, but there you go. Lately, the one I’ve been asked about is Adele,” Gallagher added. The The High Flying Birds frontman went on to label Adele as part of the "sea of cheese" that popular music has become, proclaiming "music has nosedived into f***ing blandness – a sea of cheese."
Gallagher has also recently addressed his decision to allow Aurora's version of Oasis song ‘Half The World Away’ to be used on the John Lewis Christmas advert. Gallagher told Jo Whiley on her BBC Radio 2 show that the song, ”will forever be synonymous with Christmas from now on and, as is well known, it's not my favourite time of year”.
"Having said that, at least it comes with a cheque, which, believe me, is highly worthwhile,” he added. "Don't go buying me John Lewis vouchers for Christmas, trying to be a smart arse, inside a card that says 'Noel'".
