Noel Gallagher loves Take That, Lady GaGa and Girls Aloud.

The Oasis rocker has a secret penchant for the trio of pop acts, but reserved special praise for the 'Back For Good' stars' current 'Circus' tour - which saw them supported by 'Poker Face' singer Lady Gaga.

He said: "Take That are smashing it up with their tour. It couldn't happen to a bunch of nicer lads.

I don't mind Lady Gaga, she has that bra with the things coming out. The name says it all though doesn't it? Unbelievably crackers, but she's got a great voice.

"I don't mind Girls Aloud, Kimberley Walsh is my favourite."

Despite his love of pop music, Noel does not approve of some of his brother, Oasis singer Liam Gallagher's friends.

He said: "The concert we did which was broadcast on TV in 2000 was momentous because Liam had been up all night drinking strong lager with one of the lads from Steps. It was one of the longest shows in history for me, I couldn't wait to get off the stage.

"It's alright if you're hanging out with Bobby Gillespie or someone but when it's like, 'Where have you been?' 'I've been out with Mel B.' It's not right."
