You have to love Noel Gallagher, he is always entertaining and is never afraid to insult people at the risk to become totally unloveable? At least, he doesn’t care, actually it’s Gallagher’s own art, he tells the most controversial thing about the most beloved artists of the moment, even though he may not even think half of it? I can’t really tell, but it’s funny. His latest victim is Adele… and I was wondering about that, Gallagher doesn’t have an opinion about Adele yet? Of course he does!
According to the Telegraph, when Noel Gallagher was asked about Adele’s music, his rant included this funny line:
‘music has nosedived into fucking blandness – a sea of cheese.’
But also these ones, far less polite:
‘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.’
We all know that Adele is 25 and has a great sense of humor, so I guess she can take this, plus everyone is going to defend her…
But Noel has a great point, there’s something so conventional about Adele’s music, it’s made to please about everyone (except Gallagher and a few others) with a mix of about everything, from pop, R&B, rock, blues, may be at the exception of rap, but she said she likes Drake, and wants to collaborate with him, everything is covered…
She looks and sounds like a comforting piece of cake, and no, I am not making a bad joke about her figure… she fits this time of the year with its cortege of Thanksgiving-Christmas family meals and warm wishes, a bit grandmother-like as Gallagher says. Adele is so…. winterly? In a good way, like a hot chocolate in a cup and a fireplace at your feet, and this is the key to her success, she doesn’t even overlap the impact of any other big female singers of the moment… Peppy Taylor Swift? Not a chance because if Adele is winter granny, Taylor is the youthful chick, all spring-like, jumping all over the place as if there was new sap running in her veins at each tune, while everyone knows Beyonce is hot like summer, always hanging out half-naked like a trip to the beach, so we have all the seasons covered except autumn… which could eventually be Rihanna? Still very hot – at least in LA – still naked with more life experience – who can forget about all that domestic abuse?
But we have entered winter, so Adele is definitively the singer of the season, regardless what Noel Gallagher thinks.
