Liam Gallagher has backed a mental health awareness campaign to mark World Mental Health Day 2016, which takes place today (Monday, October 10).
The #IAMWHOLE campaign was launched with help from Jordan Stephens of Rizzle Kicks, who has recorded the song 'Whole' (scroll below to watch video) for the NHS-backed anti-stigma campaign. The campaign, a partnership with youth charity YMCA, hopes to raise awareness of mental health issues suffered by young people.
Celebrities such as James Corden and Ed Sheeran have backed the cause so far, sharing photos of their hand with a circle drawn on it. Now Oasis frontman Gallagher is the latest to join the campaign.
Liam told The Sunday Times: "Obviously [our mum would] like us to be chatting, sit around the table at Christmas. But it’s a stupid standoff, and we should know better, as we have kids. It would be nice for me and [Noel] to get back together as brothers. But it’s good, the standoff. I’m enjoying it. I ain’t backing down. He ain’t backing down."
"At least people are still talking about it. They’re obsessed," he added. "There’s no harm in it. He says shit about me. I say shit about him. I have held the olive branch out, and there has been nothing, so there you go. Potato it is, mate."
