The ‘Champagne Supernova’ hitmaker criticized the 23-year-old British heartthrob’s debut solo single and even accused him of not writing his own music.
Noel Gallagher of Oasis didn’t hold anything back in a recent interview with Absolute Radio. The 50-year-old rocker was apparently not a big fan of Harry Styles and he made it no secret as he shared his review of the One Direction star’s debut solo single, “Sign of the Times“. He even accused Harry of not writing his music after taking all the credits for all the tracks on his solo album.
“You’re not telling me Harry Styles is currently sat in his room somewhere writing a song. With any joy, he’ll be surrounded by a lot of 17-year-old girls, do you know what I mean?” he said. “F**king getting coke blown up his a**hole, hopefully. But I can assure you, he doesn’t got an acoustic guitar out trying to write a middle-eight for someone. You know what I mean?”
He further claimed that his cat could have written “Sign of the Times” in ten minutes. “People of my age have let themselves go, they’re fat, balding idiots with fading tattoos. They sit in their garage and write s**t like ‘Sign of the Times’ for Harry Styles. Which, quite frankly, my cat could have written in about 10 minutes!” he shared.
Despite the negative review, Noel said that he had no problem with the song. He explained, “I don’t mind the song, my wife was falling over herself, ‘Have you heard Harry Styles’ new song? It’s like Prince.’ I was like, ‘Without even hearing it, I can assure you it’s not like Prince!’ ”
Never one to mince his words, here'son Harry Styles…

It was not the first time Noel blasted Harry and his music. In 2013, the “Wonderwall” singer blamed One Direction for “banal pop music,” saying, “F**king idiots. Bless ’em. Bless ’em, but f**k ’em at the same time.” Meanwhile, in 2015, Noel said that Harry didn’t have a “great deal to say for himself.”
