Artwork will take pride of place in his front room

Liam Gallagher gets SpongeBob Squarepants painting - Tabloid Hell
Oasis frontman Liam Gallagher has commissioned a painting of kids cartoon character SpongeBob Squarepants.

The singer is getting an artist to recreate the cartoon sponge in the style of pop artist Andy Warhol.

The finished artwork will then hang in his living room for all to see alongside pictures of Elvis Presley and Jimi Hendrix.

Gallagher said: "SpongeBob is a fucking mental, full-of-beans, enthusiastic sponge that lives at the bottom of the sea in Bikini Bottom. He's mad for it."

He went on to say another character in the cartoon, called Squidward, reminds him of his brother Noel.

Liam, who went to the premiere of the cartoon character's movie back in 2004, told Q: "I'm having a painting done at the minute, a proper Andy Warhol-style portrait of SpongeBob. He'll be facing Elvis and Hendrix."
