You can't please them all.
Though Taylor Swift's bestselling 1989
is her most critically acclaimed album yet, one person definitely not impressed is Oasis' Noel Gallagher.
The 47-year-old "Champagne Supernova" singer recently got candid with Rolling Stone
, bashing the "Blank Space" singer in a new interview. When the magazine pointed out that many people praise 25-year-old Taylor's talent as a songwriter
, he outright laughed.
"Who says that? Her parents?" he quipped. "Who's 'people'? Name these people. You're f**king lying. She seems like a nice girl, but no one has ever said those words, and you f**ing know it.”
Though to be fair, Noel calls all modern pop music "f**ing awful."
"Modern pop music is bland nonsense," he says. "There isn't even a word yet that's capable of describing it. If it was a color, it would be beige. Do you know what color beige is? It's like a milky brown. Not for me."
Curiously though, he's a little less harsh when it comes to the epitome of pop music -- British boy band One Direction.
"I know Harry Styles. We've hung out a couple of times," he says, shouting out Taylor's ex
. "They're lovely lads. But I've got to say, I have difficulties with people who don't write their own songs, who've got a team of songwriters who work for your record label."
And don't even get him started on Kanye West and his now infamous post-GRAMMYs rant dissing Beck
"He's a character, I'll give him that," Noel says. "And I love his track 'Black Skinhead.' But somebody needs to buy that dumbass a dictionary so he can look up the word 'artistry.' Beck can play the banjo, for f**k's sake. Nobody plays the banjo! Get him a dictionary from me, I'll f**kin' sign it and give it to him so he can look it up."
Wonder what Noel will think about that?
