Noel Gallagher: Adele makes ‘music for grannies’

Gallagher says '25' album belongs to a "sea of cheese" ruining modern music

Noel Gallagher has criticised Adele and her songs, describing them as “music for grannies”.

Speaking to Music Feeds, via The Telegraph, Gallagher was asked about Adele and did not hold back with his opinions. “If someone wants to know what I think of Adele, I’ll fucking tell them… I just don’t see what all the fuss is about. I don’t like her music. I think it’s music for fucking grannies.”

Gallagher added that he considers Adele to be part of a “sea of cheese” ruining modern music. “Music has nosedived into fucking blandness,” he said. “A sea of cheese.”


Adele‘s ’25’ recently broke the Official UK Album Chart record for the fastest million-selling album. It replaced Oasis album ‘Be Here Now’ as the fastest selling album in UK Chart history.

However, the famously caustic Gallagher did add that he would prefer to talk about music he actually likes. “It is interesting that no-one ever talks about my love of U2 and Coldplay, but there you go. Lately, the one I’ve been asked about is Adele.” .


Earlier this week, in a separate interview, Gallagher discussed his regrets over the way Oasis broke up.

He said: “Leaving Oasis – that was a horrible night [in Paris, 2009]. I knew that it was going to be a decision that would follow me around – there’s still not a day where I don’t read something about us getting back together – so I knew what I was getting myself into. [It was the right thing to do], definitely. What Oasis had in its future was to do bigger tours and generate more money, which is great. I wasn’t planning on going solo, but it was such a mess that I was happier off [doing that].”

Gallagher also said that he is not interested in seeing The Stone Roses live unless the band record a new album, following the group’s recent reunion.
