Liam Gallagher says he could sing better than Noel even if he was "kicked in the balls by a pigeon"


Liam Gallagher once described Twitter as a “weapon” he uses to put people in their place. And the famously shy and retiring Oasis frontman is back at it again, claiming that he could sing “any song” better than older brother Noel – even if he was “kicked in the bollocks by a wood pigeon”.

“See the fake bombing about in his stone island again coz he’s in manc,” he tweeted. “He’ll be back in his Prada 1st thing tmorrow”.

“To all the people who dig what I’m about, I know you’ll freak out as its proper. To the people who hate what I’m about, I hope it sends you mad.”

And responding to a fan asking whether he really thought he could do ‘Don’t Look Back In Anger’ better than Noel, Liam retorted: “I can sing that better than him with gaffer tape round my mouth you little toad”.

It’s far from the first time Liam has caused controversy with his forthright approach to the world – between half-heartedly comparing Chris Martin to a geography teacher and slightly more terrifyingly saying he’d like to “hang Robbie Williams on stage”, it’s pretty safe to say he’s not afraid to speak his mind.

In 1997, he described Keith Richards and George Harrison – who he also referred to as a “fucking nipple” – as “jealous and senile and not getting enough fucking meat pies”, and in 2009 told the NME that Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong could “fuck right off”: “I just don’t like his head”. Florence Welch? “Sounds like someone stood on her fucking foot”. Wayne Rooney? “A fucking balloon with a fucking Weetabix crushed on top”. Noel Gallagher? “Potato”.

Liam has also used Twitter to reveal some searing insights into Oasis’ years at the top: in 2014, he tweeted  “THE OASIS YEARS THEY FORGOT TO MENTION BONEHEAD USED TO STICK FIG ROLLS UP HIS ARSE HA HA X”.
