Shannon McCarthy of Get Real Detroit spoke with Noel Gallagher of Oasis — before his taxi wreck, on his thoughts about the press, particularly in the UK. “The U.K. press is scum,” Noel said. “In American it’s different because I think America has a greater respect for successful people and a greater respect for artists. In England, as soon as you’re working class and you become successful then people in the media will always find some way to undo that. I have no guilt over the money I’ve earned. It’s f**king my money, and if you didn’t earn it, it means you’re a lazy bastard. It’s as simple as that. They don’t like that.” Getrealdetroit.com has since removed the article.
