Noel Gallagher's Take On Pop Music

The 55-year-old went rogue mid-interview and had unpleasant words for Smith while he spoke about the current situation of pop music.

"Music has become quite fractured and chart music is dominated by pop. Pop music is alright if the pop stars are cool. Sadly the stars of today are f***ing idiots."

When asked to indicate who he thought was uncool, only one name came to mind, and he quickly replied, "Sam Smith."

Smith also spoke about the harassment they've received since coming out.

"I think all the only negatives in the struggle have been in my public life and my job. And just the amount of hate and s****ness that came my way was just exhausting. It was in the f****** news."

Getting Spat On

They spoke about getting spat on in England and expressed his disappointment.

"Someone spat at me in the street. It's crazy. What I find hard about it is it's like, if that's happening to me and I'm famous, I'm a pop star, can you imagine what other kids, like queer kids are feeling? And it's just so sad that we're in 2023 and it's still happening. It's exhausting and especially in England."

Smith described the glaring difference between their public and personal life. While their public life is chaotic, their personal life has not experienced one negative.

Family And Love Life

They spoke about their family and how they have free access to communicate with them. They also described their love life as amazing.

"My love life has become better from it. I feel lovable. I feel comfortable in my skin, but I wear what I want to wear."

Wishing Things Were Done Earlier

They expressed their wish to have identified as non-binary earlier than now.

"Since changing my pronouns, it felt like a coming home. I wish I knew what the words were when I was in school, because I would've identified as that in school. Because it is who I am and it's who I've always been."

"Cat Burns. Anne Marie. Florence Welch. There's so much incredible female talent in the UK — they should be on that list."
