Noel Gallagher isn’t a Taylor Swift fan, then?

Oasis was great back in the day, sure, but now Liam and Noel Gallagher are washed up has-beens who are better known for being total dickheads who talk shit about pretty much everyone on earth (including each other) than they are for their once-great music. Noel has a special brand of asshole-ness, though, and his latest rant was against Taylor Swift and her songwriting abilities.

From Rolling Stone:

What about Taylor Swift? She’s a pop star, but many people praise her talent as a songwriter.
[Laughs] Who says that? Her parents?

Lots of people.
Who’s “people”? Name these people. You’re fucking lying. She seems like a nice girl, but no one has ever said those words, and you fucking know it.

Haha, well, okay, fair enough. Taylor isn’t everyone’s cup of tea. You know who IS golden is Noel’s book? One Direction, of course – more particularly, Harry Styles.

What about One Direction, do you like them?
I know Harry Styles. We’ve hung out a couple of times. They’re lovely lads. But I’ve got to say, I have difficulties with people who don’t write their own songs, who’ve got a team of songwriters who work for your record label.

And there you have it. Noel Gallagher’s thoughts on the world of pop. But wait – I’ll leave you with one bonus quote:

Do you listen to much pop?
No. It’s fucking awful. Modern pop music is bland nonsense. There isn’t even a word yet that’s capable of describing it. If it was a color, it would be beige. Do you know what color beige is?

I do, yeah.
It’s like a milky brown. Not for me.

Cool beans.

  • @Brooklyn, I was just going to say that! Music today sucks!! Nobody plays instruments any more and it’s all auto-tuned which can make anybody sound good! that’s why they all lip-sinc at they’re concerts because they can’t sing live!

  • While she’s crying in her giant mansion rolling around on her billions of dollars, I’m sure she’s heartbroken Noel Gallagher doesn’t think she’s reached the songwriting glory of “where were you when we were getting high” x repeat one thousand times

  • I hate music snobs. I don’t care for pop country or r&b, but I really hate when someone puts down a music genre when really they should see it as a matter of preference. I’m not a Taylor swift fan but she does write her stuff and I do agree with him on people that have a team to put it all together for them… But he sounds like an obnoxious prick
