Fed up with the far-out

The Star Early Edition - - TONIGHT TELEVISION -

NOEL Gal­lagher, 47, stopped tak­ing co­caine be­cause he got “bored” of talk­ing about aliens.

The singer has re­vealed that while he still smokes cig­a­rettes and en­joys al­co­hol, he no longer takes the Class A drug be­cause he’s “bored” of hav­ing bizarre con­ver­sa­tions. The rocker ad­mits he used to spend hours “talk­ing about pyra­mids, aliens and The Bea­tles and who shot JFK” at his nightly par­ties.

He said: “I had ex­hausted ev­ery av­enue of con­ver­sa­tion. I had par­ties at all of my houses ev­ery night. I just as­sumed that is what you did. That is what is ex­pected of you. That is why it is the great­est business in the world.”

The star claims he didn’t find it dif­fi­cult to kick the habit back in 1998: “It was easy to give up. I’m very dis­ci­plined and just thought one af­ter­noon, ‘I am bored now. This is against the law’.”
