One Direction makes Noel Gallagher want to bang his head against the Wonderwall. The 46-year-old former Oasis rocker just ranted against the boy band, but also threw them some backhanded compliments on their success.
His GQ interview is 80 percent f-bombs, but here’s the start of his take on One Direction: "F—ing idiots. Bless 'em. Bless 'em, but f— 'em at the same time."
He continues, going off on "banal pop music, like One Direction, while complimenting it as helping just about everyone but himself.
"[E]verybody's winning out of it," Noel said. "One Direction aren't working in the local f—ing Costcutter, so they're winning. The geezer who's writing the f—ing sh-t tunes - he's winning. He doesn't even have to leave the studio. He's got f—ing new houses coming out of his ear holes. The record company are winning - 'cos they're all getting their f—ing bonuses at Christmas. The young 12-year-old girls are winning because one day they might actually grow up to give one of them a blow job. They're all winning. No one's losing! The only people who are losing are idiots like me at 9.30 in the morning when you're trying to get the kids out the door for school, and they're f—ing murdering one of Blondie's songs."
Ha! It's funny and wrong and right and really just a sad take on 12-year-old girls.
Do you agree with Noel’s take on One Direction or is he just a bitter former star shaking his head at kids today?
