Emeli Sande has hit back at Noel Gallagher for saying her music is "for grannies".

In an interview with Shortlist, Gallagher singled out the multiple Brit-winner, adding that he doesn't get her music, and had a few words for Paloma Faith too. He said: "You look at the 'best' now. Paloma Faith? Do me a favour. Who’s fucking decided she’s a star? Emeli Sande? That is fucking music for grannies. I don’t get it."

The 'Next To Me' singer has now responded to the comment and made her feelings clear by tweeting "Thanks Noel", along with a picture of an old granny sticking her middle finger up. The tweet is below:



Next week sees the start of the shows curated by Noel Gallagher for the Teenage Cancer Trust at the Royal Albert Hall. He's lined up Kasabian, Primal Scream, Ryan Adams, Paul Weller and Rizzle Kicks for the gigs, and will take to the stage himself with Damon Albarn, Graham Coxon and Gruff Rhys.

As reported yesterday, Gallagher said he'd approached "middle class" acts like Ed Sheeran and Mumford and Sons, who had declined. "I got let down a lot. Everybody says yes to your face. And then the agent will call and say, ‘'Ah, they’re going to be in Australia at the time.' Really? Well they never said that to me."
