Noel Gallagher calls Prince Harry a 'f*****g woke snowflake' in brutal interview
Is there anyone he doesn't slag off these days?
Noel Gallagher has gone in on Prince Harry in an interview with The Sun. Hardly going to be giving him a glowing review in that particular media space is he?
Speaking to the paper recently, the 54-year-old gave a pretty brutal assessment of the Duke of Sussex, calling him “a f*****g snowflake” and criticising him for “dissing” his family in public. Bit rich coming from you init!?
The older Gallagher brother's interview was, unsurprisingly, littered with a comical level of expletives but, from what we can make out, he described Harry as a “f*****g a***hole”. He said he sympathises with his big brother, Prince William, for having to put up with his sibling “shooting his f*****g mouth off.” Right, come on now, you've gotta be pulling our legs?...
He went on to say of William: "I feel that f*****g lad’s pain [...] “He’s got a f*****g younger brother shooting his f*****g mouth off with s*** that is just so unnecessary. I’d like to think I was always the William.”
It would seem the blatant irony is lost on Noel, either that or his ego is now so inflated that he'll literally insert his own skewed experience into any discussion.
You may be rock royalty, lad, but not an actual Royal — you get that, right?
In fairness, Noel has always been pretty vocal about the Royal Family as a whole: Speaking on Matt Morgan's 'Funny How?' podcast last year, he said “They’re quite mad, the royal family [...] What a terrible f***ing s*** life they must lead. It’s just service, what a load of w***.”
The 53-year-old continued: “We grow up thinking what a life they lead, living in Buckingham Palace with f***ing boring c***s all day, what a f***ing s*** life. Can’t go anywhere, can’t do anything. F***ng going to Kenya on holiday.”
That enough asterisks for you? Thought so.
Speaking then on Harry, specifically, he jibed: “Prince Harry, surely no one takes him seriously? He’s just a mad little kid”, adding that more generally, “I don’t like do-gooders in general, they f***ing wind me up.”
He continued by saying, “Just don’t be f***ing dissing your family because there’s no need for it" - again, pot, kettle, black - before adding: "This is what happens when you get involved with Americans. As simple as that.” Ah, irony mixed with some casual xenophobia, nice. Suppose that probably makes me a snowflake as well.
This is the same bloke who said he wouldn't wear a face mask until he realised he had to if he wanted to watch City in the Champions League final. His opinions are regularly off the cuff and barely considered for more than a second - both he and Liam have made a second living out of doing just that for years. He couldn't even take a joke from Lewis Capaldi.
It's times like these when phrases such as 'never meet your heroes' and the like come to mind as it seems year after year, Gallagher seems to become more and more tiresome. It seems there isn't anyone or anything he won't slag off these days - probably why his little brother wonders "why are you such a massive c***?"
He may be one of the greatest living musicians and songwriters of the last 30 years - that I cannot deny - but sometimes you wish he'd just wind his neck in and stick to writing tunes.
