Liam Gallagher's All For Blur Reunion...Sort Of
LIAM GALLAGHER's hatred for all things BLUR is still alive and well - years after their bitter Britpop battle.
In a classic rant the OASIS frontman offered his thoughts on the reunion of his old nemesis.
And you might be surprised to hear he's given the big comeback the thumbs up...sort of.
The singer blasted: "I'm right into the Blur reunion, 'cos it'll finish off the KAISER CHIEFS and put them to bed.
"There's nothing worse than a s*** Blur. And at least the original s*** Blur are back to finish off all these other s*** Blurs.
That's almost a compliment by Liam's standards.
He continued: "I'll tell you what, though, all these band reunions recently, it just goes to show who's the real deal.
"Oasis have never split up. Now all these bands have come back, just as the recession is kicking in.
"They've all been found out.
"SPANDAU BALLET? I've seen TONY HADLEY, and it's more like Spandau Belly."
The Manc motormouth is preparing to launch his new clothes range, Pretty Green, next week.
And his new status as a fashion guru has given him a good excuse to have a pop at another band he loves to hate - COLDPLAY, he told CityLife: "They have got to be the worst dressed band.
"What are those uniforms about? My kids have got play outfits that are better than Coldplay's.
"I mean, if you're gonna win a Grammy Award, don't turn up looking like binmen!
"Disgraceful. Make a bit of effort, I say."
And brother NOEL didn't escape a Liam tongue-lashing, as the singer escalated their sibling rivalry.
Responding to the guitarist's recent comments that Oasis were going to take a "very long break", Liam said: "If someone is gonna stop me making music and stop me playing live for five years, then I'm gonna go do something else creative aren't I?
"If this person is gonna put me on the shelf for five years, then I'm gonna find something else to do.
"So Pretty Green is what I'm doing while someone tries to pull the plug on other things.
"I've heard him say: 'Our kid needs to be in the papers all the time.'
"That's rubbish - I don't wanna be in the papers at all. It's him that wants to be in the papers.
"He's loving his new-found fame, hanging out in the Groucho Club with s*** comedians like Russell Bland.
"I don't need to be in the public eye at all."
Liam might be good at dishing out fashion advice but he has no plans to become the blokes' answer to GOK WAN. However, he does admit to being mates with the camp TV stylist.
He said: "With Pretty Green, it's all about my personal tastes. I'm not trying to make a massive statement about men's fashion.
"I'm definitely not going to appear on TV with Gok Wan. I know Gok Wan pretty well, he's alright. I know him through the missus. But I won't be appearing on his show. Or LORRAINE KELLY's. No chance."
