This might come as a bit of a shock, but Noel Gallagher had some unkind things to say about One Direction and the music industry in general during a new interview with Esquire.

There was some genuine shock though when he massively bigged up Kanye West in the same interview.
Here’s what he had to say:
I’ll tell you what’s wrong. Fame’s wasted on these cunts today.
Bar Kanye. You watch him on the MTV Awards and you think, ‘You can fucking stay, you’re alright’.
Does anybody give a fuck about what any of these current pop stars are up to? Who gives a shit what fucking One Direction do? Cocksuckers, all of them in rehab by the time they’re 30.
Harry Styles has got nothing to say for himself — nothing. ‘You alright, mate?’ “Uhhh.” That’s it. The gig will never die because you can’t download it. You can’t download spirit.
He didn’t stop there:
Who gives a shit what Ellie Goulding is up to? Really? Adele, what? Blows my fucking mind. It blows my fucking mind. Nobody cares! Fame’s wasted on them, with their fucking in-ear monitors and their electronic cigarettes. And their fragrances that they’re bringing out for Christmas. You fucking dicks.
Jeez Noel, why don’t you say what you really mean?
