Rock legend Noel Gallagher has launched a blistering attack on Doncaster pop star Louis Tomlinson and his One Direction band-mates.
The former Oasis star took aim at the boy band and a string of other pop stars in an X-rated tirade in an interview for the latest issue of Esquire, out now.
“I’ll tell you what’s wrong. Fame’s wasted on these c**** today,” Gallagher is quoted as saying.
“Does anybody give a f*** about what any of these current pop stars are up to?
“Who gives a shit what f****** One Direction do? C**ks**kers, all of them in rehab by the time they’re 30.”
“Harry Styles has got nothing to say for himself – nothing. ‘You alright, mate?’ “Uhhh.” That’s it. The gig will never die because you can’t download it. You can’t download spirit.”
He continued: “Who gives a s*** what Ellie Goulding is up to? Really? Adele, what? Blows my f****** mind. It blows my f****** mind. Nobody cares! Fame’s wasted on them, with their f****** in-ear monitors and their electronic cigarettes.
“And their fragrances that they’re bringing out for Christmas. You f****** d****.”
The guitarist also described the decision of ex-One Direction singer Zayn Malik to leave the pop group as foolish: “For the likes of me who persevered from an early age to play the f****** guitar and write songs and practice and practice and practice, I’ll be fine. God help Zayn Malik.”
Gallagher previously called Malik a “f****** idiot” for parting ways with the band.
