One Direction’s Liam Payne has laid into Oasis’ Noel Gallagher, The Daily Mirror reports.
Liam, 22, who was once a huge Oasis fan, accuses 48-year-old Noel of being two-faced after being pally with him on the same day he was bad-mouthing 1D last month.
Liam says: “The funny thing was, I met him the day the story came out.
“I didn’t know it was coming out, and he came up and said, ‘All right, mate? How are you doing?’ I was like, ‘Fine thanks, mate. Nice to meet you’.” That was on the same day that Noel was calling 1D “c***suckers”.
Liam says: “The next day I read the story and thought, ‘How sad is that?’ He completely dissed us. Nice to diss your fans, isn’t it?”
Liam says: “Oasis are great. I just wish sometimes they’d pipe down.
“There’s no point. He ripped off half the industry for no reason, and then loved Kanye West. I love Kanye West as much as the next man, but there’s no need to diss poor Adele.”
Speaking on Radio 1’s Superstar Playlist, Liam says: “It’s sad because they (Oasis) genuinely led me to a path of singing. That’s something they should be genuinely proud of.
“They don’t think before they speak. You never know who was a fan of your music. Especially when you were as big as they were. Do it with grace. Good old Noel, bless him.
“I had to have a moan about that at some point. I’m over it.”
