Nelly Furtado 'inconsolable' after Oasis split
Nelly Furtado has spoken of her distress at hearing Noel Gallagher had left Oasis.

The Portuguese-Canadian pop star revealed to the Mail On Sunday that she was a massive fan of the band, and even used to write letters to Liam Gallagher as a teenager asking him to go out with her.

"I was inconsolable when Oasis split up," Furtado admitted. "That band meant the world to me. As a 16-year-old I would write letters to Liam with my photo attached and pray that he would ask me out on a date, but he never did."

She also admitted that Oasis' 1995 hit 'Wonderwall' was one of the first songs she learned to play on guitar.

She said: "At college I learned to play guitar to 'Wonderwall'. Oasis were everything I loved about pop music. They could express emotions with the most simple song structures. They had the kind of brash attitude I could completely relate to."

Furtado went on to reveal that she had a breakdown in the early stages of her career, saying she "felt like a fraud" after two years of constant partying.
