Noel Gallagher doesn't ''give a s**t'' what people think about him.

The 50-year-old rocker has admitted he doesn't pay attention to social media because he isn't interested in people's opinions on his music, and insists that whilst he isn't an inherently ''private person'', he doesn't actively share information with the public.

He said: ''I don't have social media accounts. I don't get a live feed of what people are saying. My daughter is usually my ... you know, when she comes in from school she'll say 'Oh god look at this'. But I don't want anybody to know anything about me, so whatever the misconceptions are, that's my fault. And I probably cultivate that. I'm not an overly private person, but I don't give a s**t what they think about me. It doesn't bother me in the slightest.''

The 'Holy Mountain' hitmaker - who has 17-year-old daughter Anaïs with his ex-wife Meg Matthews, and sons Donovan, 10, and Sonny, seven, with his wife Sara McDonald - insists isn't ''bothered'' by anyone's opinion of him other than his family, including his cat.

He added: ''I for one, I'm not bothered what Mary Smith thinks of me, no offence Mary, and whatever her opinion is of me, that's all it is. I only really care what my wife and kids think of me, and my cat. My cat is important. If he didn't like me, life wouldn't be worth living.''

Noel also doesn't like the idea of having ''direct contact'' with his fans on social media, because he doesn't think it's ''healthy''.

Speaking during a Facebook Live chat with Noisey on Wednesday (15.11.17), he said: ''Some people sit and have direct contact with their fans through Twitter and all that, and I don't think that's healthy. For either your fans or for you, because then you can't detach yourself from it.''
