Noel Gallagher has hit out at former One Direction singer Harry Syles, after criticising his song Sign of the Times in spectacular style.
The Oasis legend, and one of the funniest men in rock and roll, took aim at the song, claiming that his ‘cat could have written it’.
Speaking about Styles during an interview with Absolute Radio, Gallagher said that musicians of his generation are now ‘past their best’ and end up writing songs for much younger stars, like Styles.
“People of my age have let themselves go, they’re fat, balding idiots with fading tattoos. They sit in their garage and write shite like ‘Sign of the Times’ for Harry Styles. Which, quite frankly, my cat could have written in about 10 minutes!”
He went on to say: “I don’t mind the song, my wife was falling over herself, ‘Have you heard Harry Styles’ new song? It’s like Prince’, I was like, ‘Without even hearing it, I can assure you it’s not like Prince!’”
Styles released his first solo single Sign of the Times to much fanfare earlier this year, after One Direction split in 2016.
The song has received a mostly positive response and racked up nearly 70 million views, but Noel clearly isn’t much of a fan…
It comes after brother Liam spoke in defense of Styles, telling the NME: “I don’t mind [Sign of the Times], man. There’s some interesting bits in it. I mean, I don’t know how it fucking goes, but fair play to him.
He added: “I’ve got the weight of Oasis still hanging over me and I’m sure I’ll always be that guy from Oasis, so I’m sure he’s carrying an equal weight.”
Meanwhile, rumours of a possible Oasis reunion have been circulating, after Liam affeared to end his feud with brother Noel by wishing him a happy Birthday on Twitter.
