Welcome to the Daily Gossip: your daily stop-off to find out who in the world of music has been up to what.

Today’s top gossip:

Former Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo has given his verdict on British music, and according to him, Oasis trounce The Beatles. “Liverpool have The Beatles and Manchester have Oasis,” he said. “I think we [Manchester] have the better band.”
The Portuguese star says he owns every Oasis album, with his favourite track being ‘Champagne Supernova’ (“It’s an absolute classic,” he said), despite never having heard of the band when he first moved to the city. “I will be honest, I didn’t even know who they were when I first arrived in Manchester, but you can’t live there long without knowing who they are.”
He added that he had never met the Gallagher brothers, though he had seen them around Manchester. “I saw them around town a couple of times but never spoke to them. They didn’t look that approachable but sometimes these artistic types are like that,” (The Sun).
