Noel Gallagher is not exactly known for his tact, so when he expressed his personal opinion of Adele’s music—that he doesn’t like it—it should not come as a surprise to anyone; or rather, the specific words he used should not come as much of a surprise at all.
Indeed, the former Oasis frontman is one of the few who will forgo the Adele bandwagon now that her third studio album has propelled the 27-year-old Brit beyond the record industry stratosphere.
When asked about it, Gallagher replied: “Lately, the one I’ve been asked about is Adele. If someone wants to know what I think of Adele, I’ll f–king tell them. Not because I have any sort of agenda or because I’m trying to whip up any kind of hysteria.”
Ok, so he is entitled to his opinion; after all he has been around the business for a very long time. But does he have anything to about her album or her artistry at all? I mean, she is a Grammy-winning recording artist, after all.
Honestly, he replies, “I just don’t see what all the fuss is about. I don’t like her music. I think it’s music for f–king grannies.”
Apparently it is as hard as for Gallagher to get into her music as it is for her to write it. Indeed, the new mum has been passing one life milestone after another—mostly in regards to her new son, Angelo with long fiancé Simon Konecki—which complicates matters when trying to sit down and pen a song.
In fact, Adele says, “I found it impossible, for a while. I didn’t know what I wanted to write about…What’s wrong is I wasn’t sad.”
Maybe her confusion was just the thing she needed to keep her fans happy as this next album is not leaving the charts any time soon.
