Gallagher: I like 1D, not Mumford

Liam Gallagher reckons One Direction aren't a bad bunch

Liam Gallagher has revealed he likes One Direction, but is no fan of Mumford & Sons.

The former Oasis frontman, who is working on his third Beady Eye album, reckons the folk-rockers - whose second album Babel debuted at No 1 in the UK and has been a huge success in the States - look like hippies.

"There's a lot of banjos. Everyone looks like they've got f***ing nits. And eat lentil soup with their sleeves rolled up. They all look like they live on the Heath," he told Q.

"Everyone's f***ing Don McLean, far too many acoustic guitars, no style, they look like they shop at Oxfam."

As for One Direction, Liam said: "I like them. Fair play to them. I met them at the Olympics and their heads were up their a***s, but they're harmless."

The 40-year-old also denied that he will reunite with his brother Noel for the Oasis comeback tour, to celebrate the 20th anniversary of (What's The Story) Morning Glory?

"He'll be f***ing doing it on his own. Or with his f***ing High Flying Smurfs. The thought of going onstage with that idiot anyway and hanging out with his daft mates... not interested, mate," he said.

If you're with someone who doesn't want to spend time with you outside the bedroom, move on to greener pastures. It's sometimes difficult to face the truth of a situation like this. When in doubt, talk to a trusted friend. They'll give you an honest assessment of this bond. A relative may ask to come to their rescue. Fortunately, you have the necessary resources to bail them out.More
