Champagne Supermoaner: Liam Gallagher hits out at bro Noel ... again
LIAM GALLAGHER is “upset” with a version of Champagne Supernova played by his estranged brother Noel. The former Oasis frontman criticised Noel, who wrote the 1996 hit, after he played it live at a gig in Brazil.
“Just heard Dolly’s version of Champagne Supernova in Brazil. Somebody needs to have a word. It’s really upsetting,” Liam tweeted. “My point is just because you wrote it doesn’t mean you should always sing it,” he went on to say, adding “it’s really upsetting” and “I’m upset”.
The antagonism between the brothers is longstanding, with the band splitting in 2009.
In a Q&A with fans earlier this month, Liam said Noel “needs all the songs he can get himself these days”, when asked if he would sing a song his brother wrote for him.
His description of Noel as Dolly had some on Twitter confused at first. “Just been trying to find a video of Dolly Parton doing Champagne Supernova before realising he’s talking about Noel,” wrote @CallumRahman.
Liam Gallagher released his debut solo album As You Were on October 6, and it surged to the top of the charts – only being knocked off the prime position by Pink’s Beautiful Trauma on Friday.
