She's enjoyed great success lately ,what with her highly successful and record-breaking album '25' and sell-out tour, so the musician was asked by Music Feeds what he thought of the songstress.

He was not polite. He said: "If someone wants to know what I think of Adele, I’ll f***ing tell them… I just don’t see what all the fuss is about. I don’t like her music. I think it’s music for f***ing grannies.”

Gallagher then said that he wasn't trying to cause a stir; he was just speaking his mind.

Adele sold 700,000 copies of her latest release last weekend.

He said: “If I get asked a question on anything, I give a straight answer… Not because I have any sort of agenda or because I’m trying to whip up any kind of hysteria.” .

Gallagher is also apparently tired of being asked about Adele: “It is interesting that no-one ever talks about my love of U2 and Coldplay, but there you go. Lately, the one I’ve been asked about is Adele.” .

He also labelled her as part of the "sea of cheese" that popular music has become. The singer said: "music has nosedived into f***ing blandness – a sea of cheese."

Noel Gallagher has also recently spoken out about the John Lewis Christmas song.

The High Flying Birds frontman said hearing Aurora's version of the Oasis B-side, Half The World Away, on the high street chain's Man On The Moon advert made him feel disappointed, because the song will now forever be associated with Christmas.

"It will forever be synonymous with Christmas from now on and, as is well known, it's not my favourite time of year," he said as he performed a concert with BBC Radio 2 in London.

"Having said that, at least it comes with a cheque, which, believe me, is highly worthwhile."
