He’s no stranger to controversy and here we go again. Ex Oasis man Noel Gallagher come out stating that it’s “boring” to write songs about drugs and rehab like artists such as Eminem.
Gallagher made the statement in a recent interview when asked if he still thinks Eminem is an “idiot”? This, 14 years on from throwing punches at the superstar rapper.
When asked about his thoughts on Eminem he told Ireland’s Sunday Independent newspaper: ”Er, he is one of those guys that goes into rehab and then they sing about it for the next 20 years. Adding: “You did a bit of fucking coke. You had a drink. Haven’t we all. I have never felt the need to be one of those fucking people. It’s boring.”
He continued: “But writing songs about drugs is as boring as writing songs about coming out the other side of drugs.”
This goes back to a 2005 interview Gallagher had with The Guardian where he went off about his hatred of rap music, and the fact that he singled out Eminem and fellow rapper 50 Cent. He said at the time: “I fucking despise hip-hop. Loathe it,” he said. “Eminem is a fucking idiot and I find 50 Cent the most distasteful character I have ever crossed in my life.”
Oh boy, here’s music’s next feud for sure.
