Liam Gallagher has made the news again recently, following some things that he's said that some other people may or may not have listened to.
The former Oasis vocalist and current frontman of Beady Eye, who are preparing to release their second album, has had some really wise words to share with us over the last few weeks. His opinions and thoughts, which are arguably wiser than those of some of the world's most important figures, have gained him some well earned coverage from the industry's biggest names.
Noel's brother started the month by speaking to Q. In an interview with the magazine, he reportedly suggested that he may quit music if Beady Eye's upcoming album isn't a success. He said:
"Well, if we're barking up the wrong tree with this record, I don't know if I can be arsed barking up it again"
Entitled 'BE', the upcoming album will be the band's second. It's due for release on June 10. You can buy their 2011 debut 'Different Gear, Still Speeding' here. A few days later, Liam Gallagher spoke in a special Britpop issue of NME. Giving his opinions on the Britpop movement, he apparently labelled Noel as "full of shit" and blamed him, along with Damon Albarn, for killing britpop earlier this year.
"What killed Britpop? The fucking fakest cuddle in my entire life, that's what fucking killed Britpop," says Liam. "Noel and Damon Albarn killed Britpop. Why? Because they thought they invented it, that's why. And when? You know when, ha ha." said the visionary, speaking of a charity gig that saw Noel Gallagher and Blur's Damon Albarn share a stage in support of Teenage Cancer Trust.
Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds' self-titled debut is available to download now. This followed news that the influential artist almost died, following the moment he ate a blue peanut M&M. Speaking to The Sun, Liam detailed the incident in great depth.
"“I’ve done some stuff over the years but never, never did I think a f****** blue M&M would be the thing that could have killed me. I was in a hotel on holiday and got in about the mini bar. I was bored and hungry, so it’s what you do, man. I’ve always liked M&Ms so I got into them. I had a blue one.
My mouth started to swell up and I could feel it tightening my throat, man. I had to go to the docs and get it checked out straight away. It happened again a couple of weeks after and now I’ve got to carry a syringe about with me in case of emergencies. Proper Pete Doherty gear.”
You can buy a bag of peanut M&Ms and most convenience stores of supermarkets.
Speaking to The Sun again, on a separate occasion, he gave his opinions on 'Get Lucky', the lead single from Daft Punk's fourth album 'Random Access Memories'. It held the number one spot for four consecutive weeks and broke streaming records worldwide, but Liam Gallagher doesn't seem too impressed with the track, claiming he could have written the hit single "in an hour".
He also encouraged the French dance duo, known for appearing in public as robots, to remove their helmets.
"I am not going to have people wear disguises. Take your fucking helmet off. Let's see what you look like sans helmet, whatever you're called" he said, speaking of the influential producers.
'Get Lucky', which features vocals from Pharrell Williams, is available for download here. Since these reports, Liam Gallagher has made the news one more time. He spoke with BBC News, saying that boy band One Direction are Beady Eye's "biggest competition."
There were other recent instances in which the artist was being quoted all over the internet, including the time he reportedly mistook Made in Chelsea star Francis Boulle for a wizard, or maybe Harry Potter.
Beady Eye's 'BE' will be released next month. Until then, look out for more fascinating tales and quotes from Liam Gallagher in the news.
