Noel Gallagher has taken another swipe at Harry Styles, slamming the star for having "nothing to say for himself".

The former Oasis rocker isn't afraid to voice his opinions and in 2013 he slammed Harry's band One Direction for making "f**king dreadful" music. Now he's laid into the curly-haired lothario once more, claiming the 21-year-old doesn't deserve his stardom.

"I’ll tell you what’s wrong. Fame’s wasted on these c**ts today," Noel grumbled to Britain's Esquire magazine.

"Harry Styles has got nothing to say for himself - nothing. 'You alright, mate?' 'Uhhh.' That’s it. The gig will never die because you can’t download it. You can’t download spirit."

Noel also took aim at the group's former member Zayn Malik, previously commenting on his departure from the boy band in March (15) and calling him a "f**king idiot". The tattooed singer left the band to focus on being a "normal 22-year-old", but has already been in the studio working on solo music.

"And, so, for the likes of me who persevered from an early age to play the f**king guitar and write songs and practise and practise and practise, I’ll be fine," Noel added. "God help f**king Zayn Malik."

The musician's interview wasn't all negative though, as he praised rapper Kanye West's talent, especially his energetic performances. Noel also shared his more affectionate side when discussing his family, revealing he's happy for his kids Anais, 15, Donovan, eight, and five-year-old Sonny to follow in his showbiz footsteps.

"My daughter, who comes from a broken marriage, she works in TV now, she’s very f**ing into it," he said of Anais, born during his union with ex-wife Meg Mathews.

"If those two lads find that thing then it’s just up to me to steer them, guide them towards it. But I’m not going to over think it, either. I mean, they’ll probably both end up working for me. Donovan’ll be the tour manager and Sonny will be head of security. I’d love that."
