Noel Gallagher: 'Last time I saw Liam he insulted me', Mick Jagger 'One Direction shows like early Stones gigs', watch Blur live... Daily Hot List
Thursday, 15 November
Noel Gallagher says he met up with Liam after the Olympics... and there's been no thaw in their relations. "We texted each other at Christmas. I saw him at a party after the Olympics - he did the usual which was hurl an insult at me and walk off... nothing new there," he explained. "He's like a squeaky toy that swears a lot... in a blazer."
Mick Jagger says One Direction's gigs remind him of early Rolling Stones shows. "I watched a concert of One Direction on the TV the other night, you know just to check it out," he said. "It reminded me very much of our early concerts, when we were pushed around among the audience and we would kind of float. They were like, floating above the audience, and they looked like, really distinctly uncomfortable." The frontman also joked about how times had changed since his band began life 50 years ago, declaring back then "we didn't read other people's e-mails, so we didn't know four-star generals were having affairs."

Amanda Palmer has written an open letter to PETA criticizing one of their recent campaigns which equates fur with unattractive body hair. The singer says it is "perpetuating really unhealthy attitudes. fear and unhappiness in the body-hair department is becoming more and more prevalent in young girls (and all women), because they feel they have no alternative." She adds: PETA, if you care about animals, and their health and overall happiness index, take your human animals into account alongside the rest of them."
Andre 3000 didn't appear on Big Boi's latest album because he was busy with razor blades... apparently. "I gave the motherfucker about five songs, but I guess he was just too busy," said Boi of his Outkast bandmate. "He said he had to do some Gillette shit. No for real. He said he had some contractual obligations." However, he's insisted there is no beef between the two, but was making a joke about his friend's role as a brand ambassador for the shaver.
