Noel Gallagher Of Oasis Needs A Big Tall Glass Of Shut The Fuck Up!!!!

Considering that Oasis has spent the majority of it's existence sounding like a cover band for The Beatles, I was stunned that front man Noel Gallagher would even dare get a Jay-Z. I am not a huge Jay-Z fan, but I respect the hell out him and his career. So, I won't spent anytime cutting up Mr. Gallaher, I'll leave that to J-Hova - "That bloke from Oasis said I couldn't play guitar/Somebody should have told him I'm a fuckin' rock star". Nuff said!!!!

This particular post right here is why I enjoy reading your blog. You have mad flavor, just like Attorneymom.

I really don't care for Jay-Z so anytime someone gets his goat i'm happy.

Noel took issue with Jay-Z performing at Glastonbury months ago (sometime around May), because it is a rock festival.

“If you start to break [tradition] then people aren’t going to go. I’m sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance.. Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music and even when they throw the odd curve ball in on a Sunday night you go ‘Kylie Minogue?‘ I don’t know about it. But I’m not having Hip Hop at Glastonbury. It’s wrong.”

He then apologised after the event.

“I wasn’t saying I was better than Jay-Z as a person or rock was greater than Hip Hop as a thing or whatever it is. I said what I said, and it was wrong, or it was taken wrong, and now all this.”- NME magazine

Considering the crowd didn't seem to know half his songs, perhaps Noel had a point....

@ Sorry Smileyface, but what you said isn't true at all. Jay-Z's appearance was SOLD OUT and highly praised and enjoyed by the crowd. And this was England, Jay-Z is huge there, so I seriously doubt the crowd didn't know his work.

Noel apologized because he looked like a playa-hating ass-hat after the success of Jay-Z's appearance.

And I find it amusing that you didn't think Jay-Z doesn't play instruments or rock and roll. You clearly didn't read any reviews because he played guitar at the event and I guess you missed his albums with Linkin Park and his acoustic album.

And considering that his song 99 problems is nothing but a rock guitar track and one of the biggest hits of his career, I'm not sure what you're talking about.

Ummm.....what on earth are you talking about? I never said Jay-Z couldn't play instruments. Please point this out in my previous post.

I don't know what you read, but over here it was public knowledge that Glastonbury DID NOT sell out.

LOL...I live in England, and Jay Z is NOT huge over here. I don't know who told you that! LOL

He has gained more recognition since he hooked up with Beyonce, and his celebrity has risen. However this doesn't always translate into successful sales.

Also, opinion was divided over his performance. I think most critics appreciated it, but there were those who didn't.

Ironically his parody of Oasis is what attracted the MOST column inches.

I don't have a problem with Noel's opinion, the festival is geared towards rock heads. So I can understand why he feels the way he does.

And considering the reception previous headliners have recieved in comparison to Jay Z (crazy!), the organisers should stick to their niche.

@smiley face

I think we are just going to have to agree to disagree because you clearly know nothing about hip hop or Jay-Z's career. Two, I'll take the official reporting over your "public knowledge" because that's the hard evidence.

Jay-Z has extensively toured England repeatedly throughout his long career and sold quite well there, one of the handful of rappers to do so and long before Beyonce came on the scene, which is just a joke to even say.

And clearly the festival wasn't complaining and decided to broaden it's definition of rock and roll. Not some guy that fronts a band that copies the sound of The Beatles. And really not from a guy who has not enjoyed have the critical and financial success of someone like Jay-Z.

And clearly there is a fear of Jay-Z having a rock audience, he surely didn't get booed and the crowd didn't sit on it's hands, so clearly a good time was had.

So as us hip hop heads understand playa hatas like you and Noel will always exist, so collect the stacks and keep it moving.

@Smiley Face

I didn't post your comment because it's time to move on. There's an election campaign going on in the USA.

I really don't care about arguing about some little rock and roll festival, the original point of the post was Jay-Z's diss, period, not about the exclusion of rappers from rock and roll because it suits white artists.

You are welcome to your view and me to mine. Thanks for dropping by.
