Rocker Noel Gallagher has taken aim at Lady GaGa, insisting her popularity is due to clever marketing and dismissing her music as "Madonna-lite".
The former Oasis guitarist keeps a keen eye on up-and-coming artists but admits he is baffled by the hype surrounding the Poker Face hitmaker.
He is adamant her tracks will not stand the test of time, and he even blasts her attempts to stand up for "freaks and weirdos".
Gallagher tells rock magazine Q, "I don't give a f**king monkey's about Lady Gaga. It's all about the meat suit and the controversy. Is it about music? Really? She's got the publicity side sorted, but where's the f**king music?
"Her first album gets played a lot round my house by my daughter. Paparazzi? It's Madonna-lite. Madonna was hardcore. She took it to the edge musically as well as everything else. Twenty years from now, will we listen to Lady Gaga? No.
"She might think she is making a stand for the freaks and the weirdos but they're not going to have any decent f**king music to play are they? My daughter loves her though so I'll shut up before I become offensive."
