Noel Gallagher On One Direction: They’re ‘F–king Idiots’
In case there was any doubt, Noel Gallagher isn’t a fan of One Direction.

The outspoken ex-Oasis rocker revealed his very candid thoughts about the boy-banders in a recent interview with British GQ, during which he called them “f–king idiots.”

“F–king idiots. Bless ’em. Bless ’em, but f–k ’em at the same time,” he said, calling their catalog “banal pop music.”

“Everybody’s winning out of it. One Direction aren’t working in the local f—ing Costcutter, so they’re winning,” he said. “The geezer who’s writing the f–king s–t tunes — he’s winning.

He doesn’t even have to leave the studio. He’s got f–king new houses coming out of his ear holes.The record company are winning ’cause they’re all getting their f–king bonuses at Christmas. The young 12-year-old girls are winning because one day they might actually grow up to give one of them a blow job.”
