The Sun reported on Monday (March 7) that Gallagher had revealed the news to a fan in London, quoting the star as saying: “I am retired now. I can write 25 songs but all of them will be shit”.
Gallagher recently made similar comments while live-tweeting the Brits. He wrote: “Music in the UK has been abducted by massive cunts… Thank fuck I got out when I got out”.
However, Gallagher’s press representative has now dismissed the retirement rumours, telling NME: “In true tabloid style it’s not true”.
Gallagher recently ruled out the possibility of him releasing a solo album. “Solo record, are you fucking tripping dickhead?” Gallagher wrote on Twitter, saying he would not release solo material as he is “not a cunt”.
He also made headlines last week after actor Sacha Baron Cohen claimed that he once threatened to “stab him in the eye”.
In a response issued to NME, Gallagher’s press representative said that the star wanted to “clarify that it wasn’t just the one eye, it was both”.
Earlier today, Liam Gallagher paid tribute to the late Beatles producer George Martin, who has died at the age of 90.
