Former 'Oasis' frontman Liam Gallagher took to Twitter to defend his explicit comment on the 'Queen' frontman Freddie Mercury after he called the legendary singer a "goofy c***". The former 'Beady Eye' singer was responding to a comment by a follower over the weekend comparing his voice to Mercury's: "Freddie Mercury – ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. Liam Gallagher – ‘Songbird’.”

Gallagher replied to the comment saying, "F*** him the goofy c**t." While most followers were disappointed with the response, one follower commented, "I hope you are joking, much respect to Freddy though.” Some even noted the fact that Mercury was a legend in his time, and continues to be, "Really? But he is better than you anyway. He was history and you are nugatory. Grow up, Liam. Don’t be jealous of FREDDIE Mercury. He rocked the stage like nobody did before.”

The singer had also taken to Twitter to throw some of his brutally honest opinions on musicians like 'Coldplay' and Jeff Buckley. According to NME, after taking top billing at the Isle of Wight festival on Saturday, Gallagher took to Twitter to dish out some of his views.

He then commented on 'Coldplay' saying, "Rite Coldplay are on now I’m off to hang myself what the fuck is up with these people cmon people were making it now.”


Regarding Jeff Buckley's 1994 album 'Grace', he commented: "Listening to this Grace by Jeff Buckley... ha ha pissing myself we are casuals LG." He also commented that the album sounded like a cat was being strangled. 

However, after receiving an unexpected backlash from his followers who also called him ignorant, he said that he didn't know why people would get offended with terms like "c**t". His post read: "So I wake up to news that I hit another and I mean another all-time low after my vile and I mean vile outburst did somebody say outburst about Fred mercy I'm sooooooo sorry if I upset anybody it's a good job there are 24 hours in a day as you'll get over it LG x." He also went on to say, "Last thing, I don't know why people get offended by the word cunt I get called a good looking cunt every day don't hear me crying as you were LGx."

Reportedly, Gallagher had also refused to headline the final night at the Isle of Wight Festival so that he could enjoy the World Cup with a few drinks. He had instead headlined on Saturday, letting 'The Killers' take the lead on Sunday.

Mirror quoted a source from Gallagher's set, who said, "Upon realising the potential clash, bosses scheduled Las Vegas rockers The Killers, who were set to headline another night, to play Sunday instead, and Liam is on Saturday. It’s not a World Cup if you are not suitably refreshed. Liam is a massive football fan so it was only right for him to be able to let his hair down and enjoy some booze during the match." Apparently, for Gallagher's set, around 50 bottles of Dom Perignon were arranged to "get the party started".
