Don't Expect a Jay-Z Gallagher Collaboration Any Time Soon
Noel Gallagher has told Radio 1 he turned down a collaboration with Jay-Z.
Speaking to Jo Whiley on Friday morning, the Oasis guitarist explained that he told the hip-hop star, "I'm afraid I'm busy".
However, Gallagher, well known for his humour, didn't clarify whether he was telling the truth about Jay-Z's offer of a collaboration.
The guitarist was an outspoken critic of the rapper headlining Glastonbury last year.
Jay-Z then mimed to Oasis' Wonderwall and played a montage of clips of Gallagher's comments at the start of his festival set.
During the interview, Gallagher also revealed that he and his girlfriend Sarah MacDonald are devoted fans of Coronation Street.
"Me and Sarah watch Coronation Street religiously," he said. "It's such an institution, that programme - why they've never asked me to be in it is really one of the scandals of our age.
"I could just have a walk-on part, a tiny little bit in Coronation Street would be brilliant."
Gallagher also said he'd be keen to live in Los Angeles, but wouldn't want his children to pick up the accent.
"LA, I've kind of grown to love it, and I never thought I'd say that," he explained. "I'd probably love to get a house in between Madonna and Robbie Williams, it'd be brilliant.
"I'm not sure I could ever actually live out there, I don't think it'd be fair on the kids. I'm not gonna have a child with an American accent, calling me 'pop'."
