Lewis Capaldi has hilarious response to Noel Gallagher 'slagging him off'
"Fucking peaked – slagged off by Noel Gallagher!"
Noel Gallagher has a new album out, so naturally the publicity around it has been the former Oasis tune writer laying into anything and everything, including weighing-in on Brexit.
Targets thus far have included Jeremy Corbyn - "fucking student debater, fucking captain fishy, craggy old fucking donkey -, Nigel Farage - an "unremarkable little fucking man" - and Diane Abbott - "the face of fucking buffoonery".
And on Sunday, in an interview with Radio X, Gallagher turned his attention away from politics and on to the state of music in 2019. Specifically to Lewis Capaldi, saying of him: "Music is fucking wank at the moment. Who's this Capaldi fella? Who the fuck's that idiot?"
You might have thought the Scottish singer would have been pretty devastated by the remarks, but instead he's offered up a hilarious response.
Taking to Instagram Stories, following the comments being aired, he said: "Fucking c’mon!"
"Fucking peaked – slagged off by Noel Gallagher!" he added.
"Number 1 single – who gives a fuck? Number 1 album – who gives a fuck? Noel Gallagher has just slagged me off. This is dreams coming true.
"It’s Father’s Day and I’m being slagged off by a man who’s old enough to be my dad, and I’ve never been more happy."
He then begins blasting 'Stop Crying Your Heart Out' through his speakers in the social media clip.
