Liam Gallagher is a fan of Emeli Sande.

The 40-year-old rock hellraiser doesn't have much time for the current rock scene, but admits a soft spot for Scottish pop star Emeli, and US crooner Bruno Mars.

He said: ''[Rock groups like] Palma Violets don't do it for me, and I'm not having that Peace, man. There's something about them that's not my thing.

''It's sad out there man, There's nobody to have a pop at any more, which is very f***ing disturbing. I like Emeli f***ing Sande. I think she's cool man. Bruno Mars' new single is mega, that ballady one on the piano.''

The Beady Eye singer has previously said he thought boy band One Direction are his ''biggest competition'' in the charts, but doesn't have anything against the individual members.

He added to NME magazine: ''They're just living their life. [Bad Heartthrob] Harry Styles? F***ing good on him man. It'll end soon, won't it, and he can look back and go, 'Yeah, I had a f***ing good time. He's riding the wave man.''
