Noel Gallagher has explained why he criticized Alex Turner in a previous interview, according to NME.
The former Oasis frontman said he believes his comments regarding the way the Arctic Monkeys frontman answered during interviews are not remarks the latter would find offensive.
"I never say anything about their persona. I don't diss anybody's character," he said. "Alex Turner wouldn't be offended by that. Why should he?"
The vocalist added, "Alex is a f*****g top dude in a f*****g top band, and a very attractive man. His interviews, on the other hand, are lacklustre."
Gallagher first made a comment about Turner during an interview with the Evening Standard about the current state of the rock music industry.
"There doesn't seem to be any characters anymore. When you have proper characters, the music sort of becomes secondary ― it looks after itself," he said.
Speaking of musicians he believes are not as "great characters" as The Smiths and The Jam, Gallagher said, "I would rather drink petrol straight from the nozzle at a garage than listen to an interview with Alex Turner from the Arctic Monkeys."
He added, "Wouldn't you? Alternative thinking is on its way out. They just don't make for great copy. Is it any coincidence that all indie labels got bought up by the major labels and things have started to get boring?"
Turner, however, is not the first musician to be the subject of Gallagher's comments.
The former Oasis frontman had called out "You're Beautiful" singer James Blunt for being "boring," according to the Independent.
Gallagher also recently gave her two cents about Taylor Swift, according to Huffington Post.
Speaking of the praise Swift has been getting for being a talented songwriter, the musician said, "Who says that? Her parents?... She seems like a nice girl, but no one has ever said those words, and you f*****g know it."
