Liam Gallagher: "I am a Belieber!"

While the Gallaghers aren't exactly known for their kind words about pop stars, Liam has announced himself as a surprise fan of one of the music industry's favourite whipping boys: Justin Bieber.

In our interview with Liam, and his other Beady Eye band members, he revealed that he became a fan after the star's controversially late performance at the O2 last month.

“Anyone who goes on two hours late is f*cking right in my book, man,” Gallagher raved to us. “All these so-called rock bands that sit backstage going, ‘Hey, let’s wait 15 minutes.’ F*ck that, wait two hours and 15 minutes! He’s kicked the f*cking arse out of it – no one will beat that, ever. So get off his f*cking back, man: I am a Belieber!”

Gallagher also shared that he'd stand up for Bieber, when required. "I’ve got his f*cking back, man,” he said.
