Noel Gallagher has slammed Harry Styles and Zayn Malik
Musician Noel Gallagher has fired shots at One Direction's Harry Styles and former member Zayn Malik, suggesting they are examples of everything that's wrong with the modern music scene.
During an interview with Esquire magazine about the current state of the music industry, he said: "I’ll tell you what’s wrong. Fame’s wasted on these c***s today."
"Harry Styles has got nothing to say for himself - nothing. “You alright, mate?” “Uhhh.” That’s it. The gig will never die because you can’t download it. You can’t download spirit. And, so, for the likes of me who persevered from an early age to play the f*****g guitar and write songs and practice and practice and practice, I’ll be fine. God help f*****g Zayn Malik."
Speaking to the Late Late Show this summer, Gallagher confessed that he can't see One Direction enjoying much more success and revealed that he didn't get why Zayn Malik quit at the peak of their fame:
"I can't understand why he (Zayn) would do it (quit the band) - because they've only got, at most, five years left. He should just stand at the back, smoke weed, get laid, just pick the cheque up and go home. But he should get himself a good accountant."
