Case in point? Oasis cofounder and songwriter Noel Gallagher. The always outspoken British musician didn't hold when recently asked about his thoughts on the chart-topping singer.
"If I get asked a question on anything, I give a straight answer," Gallagher explains to Australia's Music Feeds. "It is interesting that no-one ever talks about my love of U2 and Coldplay, but there you go. 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."
"I just don't see what all the fuss is about," he continues. "I don't like her music. I think it's music for f**king grannies."
Gallagher clearly doesn't think too highly of modern music in general.
"Music has nosedived into f**king blandness -- a sea of cheese," he laments.
This isn't the first time, of course, that Gallagher has given his unfiltered thoughts on a fellow artist. When Rolling Stone pointed out in March that many people praise Taylor Swift'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**king know it.”
But Adele and Swift are having the last laugh when it comes to selling records. Most recently, Adele's new album, 25, beat *NSYNC's previous single-week sales record from 2000 by selling a whopping 3.38 million copies in the first week.
And we already know the 27-year-old British singer isn't lacking in superstar fans. Watch the video below to see her having a fun night out in New York City with both Jennifer Lawrence and Emma Stone.
