It’s just nice to have a popular musician doing the rounds who actually has something about them; some charisma and actual personality, rather than being stoic and anti-establishment just because it looks good for “the brand”. Think Alex Turner when he had a go at the BRITs, telling them that “this isn’t rock and roll!” immediately after turning up to the event and accepting an award there, and then failing to perform a fairly routine mic-drop.
Back to the point though – while most people like some aspect of Lewis Capaldi, Oasis star Noel Gallagher doesn’t. He thinks very little of his music, in fact, and presumably isn’t a fan of him as a person, since he wouldn’t have said the things he said if he did.
And, in an interview with Radio X, Gallagher complained about the industry in general, before focusing on Capaldi, saying:
“Music is f*cking w*nk at the moment. Who’s this Capaldi fella? Who the f*ck’s that idiot?“
Bit much, really.
Weirdly though, Capaldi couldn’t be happier with the criticism, taking to his Instagram story – as he always does – to celebrate.
At first, he replayed the clip of Gallagher’s comments, before shouting “f*cking c’mon!”
He goes on to say:
“F*cking peaked. Being slagged off by Noel Gallagher. F*cking c’mon!“
He also points to himself and says “me”, as Gallagher asks “who’s this Capaldi fella?”
“Number one single – who gives a fuck? Number one album – who gives a fuck? Noel Gallagher has just slagged me off. This is dreams coming true.
It’s Father’s Day, I’m being slagged off by a man who is old enough to be my Da and I’ve never been more happy. I’ve never been more happy. Happy Father’s Day, Noel.”
So yeah, he seems pretty pleased with that review.
I’m happy for him.
