Noel Gallagher: Adele makes ‘music for grannies’

Noel Gallagher has blasted Adele, describing the multi-million-selling superstar’s songs as “music for grannies” in a foul-mouthed rant.

The Mancunian motormouth was asked what he thought about Adele and, as usual, he did not hold back with his opinions.

Speaking to Music Feeds, via The Telegraph, 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.”

The former Oasis man went on to say that he considers Adele to be part of a “sea of cheese” ruining modern music.

“Music has nosedived into fucking blandness,” said the 48-year-old indie icon. “A sea of cheese.”

Adele’s new album, 25, recently broke the Official UK Album Chart record for the fastest million-selling album.

It replaced Oasis’ Be Here Now as the fastest-selling album in UK Chart history.

Gallagher is well known for his foul-mouthed rants about practically every other act in the music business.

Having previously taken pops at the likes of Emeli Sande (again, “f***ing music for grannies”), Paloma Faith (“who’s f****ing decided she’s a star?”) and One Direction (“Cocksuckers, all of them in rehab by the time they’re 30”), this month alone Gallagher has had choice words for Ellie Goulding, Zayn Malik and Radiohead.

“Who gives a s*** what Ellie Goulding is up to?” he said.

As for Malik, he branded the former 1D singer a “f***ing idiot.”

Much of his recent ire, however, was saved for critics’ darlings Radiohead.

“I’m aware that Radiohead have never had a f***ing bad review,” moaned Gallagher in a recent interview. “I reckon if Thom Yorke f***ing (excreted) into a light bulb and started blowing it like an empty beer bottle it’d probably get 9 out of 10 in f***ing Mojo (magazine). I’m aware of that.”

One day Gallagher’s famously sharp tongue might actually get the stage it deserves (like a judges chair on X Factor), but until then, let’s just enjoy some of his greatest put-downs again…


Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Insults

“You mean the fat dancer from Take That?”


Jack White

“He looks like Zorro on doughnuts.”


Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong

“Chris Martin looks like a geography teacher. What’s all that with writing messages about Free Trade? If he wants to write things down I’ll give him a pen and paper. Bunch of students.”
