Noel Gallagher, Taylor Swift

Oasis' Noel Gallagher has some serious bones to pick with a lot of people in the music industry, and Taylor Swift can count herself among them.

Gallagher, who split from the "Wonderwall" band in 2009 and has since launched a solo career, talked to Rolling Stone about his new project and how he pretty much hates everything. That is not an exaggeration! He strongly dislikes everything, especially pop music.

But it looks like he has it out for T.Swift the most, because when the magazine mentioned her knack for songwriting, he immediately slammed the "Blank Space" singer.

"Who says that? Her parents," he asked when Rolling Stone mentioned her talent. But when the magazine responded with "lots of people," Gallagher really let it rip.

"Who's 'people'? Name these people," he said. "You're f--king lying. She seems like a nice girl, but no one has ever said those words, and you f--king know it."

Tell us how you really feel, Noel! If there wasn't a feud before, there could definitely be one now. Although we have to assume that the Swifties will come out in full force after hearing this, just like they went after Diplo when he insulted the "Style" crooner.

But Swift wasn't his only victim. Gallagher also went after One Direction and even Ed Sheeran in his tirade, essentially putting down all of pop music in the process. Even though he admits to knowing and liking Harry Styles and the rest of the group, he can't support their musical careers.

"They're lovely lads. But I've got to say, I have difficulties with people who don't write their own songs, who've got a team of songwriters who work for your record label," he said.

Apparently it doesn't matter that 1D co-writes many of its hits. One of the real problems, however, is that the Sheeran managed to sell out Wembley Stadium. Upon hearing that, Gallagher dramatically stated that he wouldn't want to live in a world where that happens.

"Am I going to take my own life, is that what you mean? No. He's all right, Ed," he said. "He took it with good humor, which is how it was meant. I was bemoaning the fact that the biggest rock bands in England can't even sell out Wembley, and yet pop music can."

His hatred for pop music isn't a secret, and he continued to insult the genre throughout the remainder of his interview, even describing it as "beige."

"Modern pop music is bland nonsense," he continued. "There isn't even a word yet that's capable of describing it. If it was a color, it would be beige...It's like a milky brown. Not for me."
