A rock star named Noel Gallagher thinks that Zayn Malik is an “idiot” for leaving One Direction! In an interview with the Rolling Stone, the Oasis singer was asked if he had any advice for the Bradford Bad Boy. And he just ended up throwing shade at the star for leaving behind one of the biggest boy bands in the world.
“I’ve never met him. I’ve only met Harry, who orbits in social circles where sometimes we end up at the same parties. Harry’s not got a great deal to say for himself, but he’s a good lad! For Zayn, though, I’d say, ‘Get a good accountant because life is very long’,” he said.
“It’s a strange thing for that lad to have done at that age. The greatest quote was — I laughed out loud when I read it — ‘I just want to be a normal 22-year-old.’ Pfft. Who wants to be a normal 22-year-old?! Hang on a minute. You can be anything that moves and gettin’ paid half a million dollars a week, you idiot,” he said.
In fact, he mirrored Ed Sheeran’s thoughts on the whole situation.
“You want to be a normal 22-year-old? Have you met any normal 22-year-olds? They’re [crap]-for-brains. What are you talking about, you idiot? God. I’ll say this to you, Zayn: You might have wanted to be a normal 22-year-old, but you won’t want to be a normal 25-year-old.”
Noel has a lot of strong feelings about modern day pop music. He recently dissed Taylor Swift and One Direction’s music — but this is a whole new level of crazy. We don’t think that Zayn is an “idiot” for quitting 1D, even if we’re disappointed that he’s no longer in the group. Plus, it seems like he’s not even angling for a normal life. It seems like he wants a solo career, making his own music and acting in movies.
