The Gallagher brothers are the greatest gift music has ever bestowed upon the world, because literally everything they do is inherently hilarious.
It doesn’t matter if it’s weirdly insisting on only wearing windbreakers on stage, or slagging each other off constantly, or storming off stage at Lollapalooza because someone in the crowd rinsed with a sign addressing the rival brother.
Everything they do, everything they say, everything they sing: It’s all an absolute pisser.
Case in point, Liam Gallagher, a mere day-removed from the aforementioned ‘O Brother Where Art Thou?‘ incident at Lollapalooza in Chicago, took time during an interview with GQ to make his thoughts on the staggeringly popular ‘Carpool Karaoke‘ series with James Corden absolutely abundantly clear.
Would the erstwhile Oasis frontman ever consider going for a ride with the ‘Late Late Show‘ host?
Not on your fucking life, mate.
The GQ interview floated the idea of Gallagher following in the footsteps of the likes of Red Hot Chilli Peppers or Mariah Carey or Sia by saddling up for a singalong with the affable British late night host. Liam’s response? Nothing but spun gold.
No, thank you very much. No fucking chance mate. With that fat bloke from Kevin and Perry?
‘Course those of you familiar with Corden’s career will know that Gallagher was probably searching for ‘Gavin & Stacey,’ not Harry Enfield‘s mid-90s recurring characters Kevin & Perry, a fact that Gallagher’s partner Debbie Gwyther caustically pointed out to the 44-year-old icon with, “It’s called ‘Gavin and Stacey’ and you’ve never watched it.”
To which Liam, the wordsmith that he is, replied with this glorious full stop:
I don’t need to watch it to know I won’t like it. James Corden is a knobhead.
In anyone else’s hands that’d be wildly unprofessional conduct. In a Gallagher’s? Borderline poetry.
Frankly, it should serve as a badge of honour for Corden. In England, you haven’t really made it until a Gallagher brother’s hung shit on you, after all.Source: NME
