Noel Gallagher has the final say on Jay-Z’s Tidal, Zayn Malik and Oasis

Noel Gallagher was on dependably amusing form when asked to comment on the launch of Tidal, the heavily criticised music streaming service from Jay-Z.

In an interview with Rolling Stone, the former Oasis singer and guitarist said of the Tidal launch event, which contained many cringe-worthy moments:

“I thought that the people on the stage might want to be a little bit aware that they don’t look like Jay Z’s minions. Madonna was pretty cool the way she cocked her leg up on that desk and signed the [declaration]. I think ultimately with the spiel they came out with, it was like, ‘Do these people think they’re the fuckin’ Avengers? They’re going to save the fuckin’ [world].’

Listen to Noel’s sweary Tidal rant in full:

In the same interview, Noel also called Zayn Malik a “fucking idiot” for quitting One Direction:

“I’ve never met [Malik]. I’ve only met Harry [Styles], who orbits in social circles where sometimes we end up at the same parties. Harry’s not got a great deal to say for himself, but he’s a good lad! For Zayn, though, I’d say, ‘Fuckin’ get a good accountant because life is very fuckin’ long’.”

He also took the opportunity to put the brakes on the Oasis reunion rumour mill once again, and pointed the finger of blame at his brother Liam:

“He’s being a bit disingenuous to Oasis fans in the sense that he always gets their hopes up. There was a rumour last week that we’ve had a gentleman’s agreement [to reform Oasis], but that rumour’s come from his people. It’s a ‘source close to him’, and I’ll tell you how close it is: She probably wakes up with him every morning. It’s always left to me in an interview to let the kids down. People say, ‘You’re breaking these kids’ hearts.’ Well, what the fuck, man?”

Liam didn’t wait long to have his say on Twitter, comparing Noel to outspoken rent-a-gob Katie Hopkins:
