Gallagher asked the footballer during joint appearance on The Graham Norton Show
David Beckham has agreed to feature in one of Noel Gallagher‘s music videos after Gallagher asked the footballer if he’d be interested during a joint appearance on The Graham Norton Show last week.
Gallagher performed his new single ‘Ballad Of The Mighty I’ on the show before joining Beckham and actor Hugh Jackman on the chat show sofa. “Is it all Manchester happiness here?” Norton asked avid Manchester City fan Gallagher. “He’s not from Manchester anyway,” Gallagher jokingly replied.
Norton proceeded to ask Gallagher why he makes music videos when he hates them so much – a reference to the Oasis man’s previous revelation that he hated doing videos. “It’s a question I ask my management a lot, I can’t stand them,” Gallagher said, before turning to Beckham and asking: “Will you be in one for us?”
“I’d love to be, I’ve always been a huge fan,” Beckham responded. “Obviously there’s a big Manchester divide between United and City, but when I used to play for England I remember Noel being at one of the games and I went up to him and shook his hand, so of course I’ll be in one of your videos.”
Gallagher’s new album ‘Chasing Yesterday’ was released this week, and the former Oasis man also discussed his dislike of the title while on the show. “I couldn’t come up with a title and I’d been up the night before, and one of the girls from the office called me and said ‘It’s going up on iTunes tomorrow for pre-order so we need a title by three o’clock’. It was twenty past one. So I had to look through lyrics and that jumped out at me. The moment I saw it I thought ‘I can’t stand it’,” he said.
Last week it was reported that Gallagher had jumped to Ed Sheeran’s defence after previously criticising the singer in an interview with NME earlier this year, in which he remarked that he couldn’t live in a world where Ed Sheeran headlines Wembley. “He’s a good lad and I won’t have a word said against him,” Gallagher said.
