Say “Hello” to your biggest — and, it would seem, one of your few — detractors, Adele.
Adele — who’s been racking up staggering sales number with her new album “25” and the smash single “Hello” — has received a merciless review from former Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher.
Speaking to Music Feeds, perpetual insult-slinger Gallagher discussed his reputation for an unchecked tongue when it comes to his fellow musicians.
“Lately, the one I’ve been asked about is Adele. If someone wants to know what I think of Adele, I’ll fucking tell them. Not because I have any sort of agenda or because I’m trying to whip up any kind of hysteria. I just don’t see what all the fuss is about,” Gallagher offered. “I don’t like her music. I think it’s music for fucking grannies.”
Gallagher would seem to be in the minority. In its first week of sale, “25” moved 3.38 million units marking the largest single-week sales figure for an album since Nielsen started tracking point-of-sale purchases back in 1991.
