Noel GallagherNoel Gallagher of Britpop group Oasis (ahh 1996) managed to make a whole lot of enemies today. Let’s see, in little more than one breath he managed to insult environmentalists, soldiers, Elton John, Robbie Williams, Tony Blair, and his brother, Liam. We have to give him props for that – he probably set some sort of world record. In fact, we’re not sure if there is any human being walking on this planet that he doesn’t hate.

We’ll start of with the environmentalists:

Greens are f***ing hippies with no place in the world. They’ve been telling us for the last 50 years not to use aerosols or the sky’s going to fall in. Well – you’re the scientists, do something about it. How do you suggest we get 50million Chinese not to have a fridge? Or get 700million Americans to stop using their big stupid cars. The only way its going to happen is if the sky falls in. Until is does, these Greens are wasting their time. I’m glad – because in 50 years time I’ll be dead.

Though it’s not like he doesn’t care for the environment.

Well – I haven’t got a car. So I’m doing my bit for the environment. I walk everywhere. I only live round the corner from Central London and I walk everywhere. That’s my bit. I take public transport and I walk. So I don’t clog up the roads with petrol fumes and all that stuff. That’s what I’m doing.

Elton & Robbie are up next:

If I run out of milk, I go to the supermarket. And I queue up like everybody else. Can you imagine Elton John queuing up to by milk?  The thing is – these stars like Robbie Williams and Elton John and all the rest of that lot – what are they afraid of? Are they actually afraid somebody might actually say hello to them in the street? There ain’t no axe-wielding celebrity murderers out there. It’s not like that. It p*sses me off that they lock themselves off from humanity. And then you see these people on telly and you wonder why they’re a**eholes.

Now the soldiers:

You get a million people walking through Hyde Park — ‘don’t send the troops’ and all that. The troops want to go, all they want to do is fight! They’re soldiers. They’re loving it, until they get shot — then they’re claiming compensation. If you’re bothered about getting shot — here’s a thing — don’t join the army.

This is how he promotes the release of the Oasis Greatest Hits album: Stop the Clocks. Controversy works, I mean, we’re talking about it. But I don’t know if it will help or hinder album sales. Sounds to me like Noel has completely lost it. He’s pissed at everybody, probably including you. And don’t think that just because you see him in the supermarket means that you can go up and talk to him, and maybe ask for an autograph. He’ll probably say, “No.” Why not? “Cause I’m not in the fu**ing mood, that’s why. Dead simple.”

Oh well. He’ll be dead in 50 years anyway.

    Come on, you act like this is news to us – Noel Gallagher has always made such comments, just like Liam, it’s their image and I f*in’ love it =P It’s them, it’s who they are and one aspect of what makes them interesting and different from other bands.

    And Noel DOES care about the environnment. He joined Chris Martin and Jonny Buckland from Coldplay on stage for a benefit Make Trade Fair concert in 2000 and has always supported Chris and the campaign.

    Noel does care, and he’s a good person, but without comments like these, I guess his fans would be disappointed! No-one should take it seriously, we’re all used to this, and especially now that their Greatest Hits is released, it’s no miracle to me!

    And he’s not even that wrong with some parts of his statement..

    This is great. For everyone who though the Gallagher brothers would calm down as the got older I guess this proves you wrong. Just like the time Noel claimed that Oasis was the best band in the world. He said that if at least half the people who hear that agree then they must have a whooole lot of fans~! I love how Noel and Liam speak their mind even if it does get a bit insulting. :3

  • Cody James Masten

    I agree completely, Noel just like his brother are some of the most interesting mates in the show. The way they speak is all humorous, they’re cocky, witty, and don’t care what you think and that’s what makes them more interesting than the other kiss asses. They’re hear to do what they want and if anyone doesn’t approve they’ll tell them to go f*** themselves. And if you really have to try and prove a point to why you don’t like them your probably just jealous they’re a part of something huge and one of the most successfull bands in the world. Even if the guy straight up told me that “Im a tawt” to my face I’d still consider him a bloody genius. Final words, Oasis rules.

    noel gallagher is brilliant…i like hte way he speaks his mind, fuck others who disagree with him

  • Mark

    Noel’s comments make great points on each issue. He’s just expressing each valid point in the “Gallagherish” vernacular. People get so caught up with the harsh sounding tone of what he says and not actually get what he says . . .

    Do something to improve the environment, not just promote a cause, Self-absorbed celebrities need to get over themselves, and accept the risk of your chosen profession.

    Those are all valid point if you can interpret the Gallagher lingo.

    Not an oasis die hard fan, but he got some points here about hippies and environment.. i mean all those good intentions for environment are real good, but they are just pointless because the government doesn’t take them seriously, if they did — they really take it seriously about oil spills, air pollution and animal killing, but there’s no change at all..
    I also agree with his statement about Elton John, he is a witty person in my opinion
