Jay-Z Detractor Cops Pleas, Oasis Front Man Says Comments “Taken The Wrong Way”

What I had meant to say was. That’s what Oasis front man Noel Gallagher should have say right after the comments he made regarding Jay-Z headlining the Glastonbury Festival. Instead, he’s copping pleas now.

“I wasn’t saying I was better than Jay-Z as a person or rock was greater than hip-hop as a thing or whatever it is,” Gallagher told NME. “I said what I said, and it was wrong, or it was taken wrong, and now all this.”

Originally, Gallagher commented on Jay-Z being chosen as the first rap act to head up the musical event.

“I’m sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance. Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music … I’m not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It’s wrong.”

Hov not only brought the house down, but he also brought the Brit down to Earth when he entered the stage. Jay-Z walked on stage with a guitar and sang the opening notes of an Oasis song to the cheers of man. The rapper even roasted Gallagher in the opening lines of his new track “Jockin’ Jay-Z,” which he premiered last week with Kanye West at Madison Square Garden.

“That bloke from Oasis said I can’t play guitar/ Somebody should have told him I’m a fucking Roc star.”

Gallagher, however, has no plans to respond.

“For my own part I can sit here and say I never dissed that guy,” he explained. “I never would. But there’s no point in going on about it, because you end up sounding like Heather Mills: ‘I said this! I meant that!’ I’ll have a beer with him one day and it’ll all be fine.”—Anthony Thomas

    first.

    jay z is a camel anyways.

    • justice4all

      I guess saying “1st” makes you a Rock Star huh…

      • giantstepp

        dude wtf, it aint that serious. you just harrassed me about saying 1st on another blog. you responding is worse than the person saying 1st. its like youre sitting around waiting to be second, to harass the dude saying 1st. why would that even bother you?

    • way

      Hey Jay…your shit aint crack no more you can’t be a roc star.

  • keith

    STOP BITCHING UP NOW WIGGER!

  • richml1992

    times have changed. accept it.

  • real talk

    did jay-z mean he is a roc star, like rocafella star.
    Or does he mean a rock star?
    Why do all rappers think their rock stars( excluding jay-z if he meant rocafella star)?

    If you dont have a band, and do not listen to rock music, and are not famous for selling rocks. then you are not a rockstar. I dont care how you dress or talk.
    so i repeat:
    If you dont have a band, and do not listen to rock music, and are not famous for selling rocks. then you are not a rockstar.

    • realer talk

      shut the fuck up idiot. your definition of a rockstar is fucking retarded like your moms.

    • Was U Sayin Something?

      Not all rappers are rock stars but alot of them are.

      Most rock stars will tell u hip hop stars are in essence the new rock stars (Gene Simmons was the first to bring it up). Originally rock stars were about the same shit hip hop stars are about now, trying to be about, and/or appear to be about…

      Mostly looking good, showing off (cars, jewelry, etc), being surrounding by good looking women, and popping bottles in VIP.
      (Not to say this is all hip hop stars are about but the image is similar to that off old school rock stars)

      Rocks image changed when big hair faded out and grunge blew out.

      I think the days of a rock star being about rock music are gone so I can understand the label.

      That said Jay probably was saying hes a ROC star. But hes just as much a rock star as a ROC star so either would have worked.

    • daz_oc

      You are gay……….what the hell do u think he meant?? i know u aint slow homie well maybe u are

      • real talk

  • Purple Urple

    They can both suck a fat dick

  • Ryan

    It’s fine if times and styles change, as long as it’s not for the worse. Change and evoloution are two different things, change isn’t always necessarily good but evoloution usually is. You want the art form and the people representing it to evolve, not change for the sake of throwing something different out there.

  • KF UK

    Yo Noel Gallagher is a cool guy, he was a dick for wat he said but yo that last bit “I’ll have a beer with him one day and it’ll all be fine” thats real talk man. hes a dude like that.

    But for real wat a way to get shown up at Glasto on your own turf, infron of the world!

    AHA!

    John Lennon after saying The Beatles were bigger than Jesus:

    “I wasn’t saying I was better than Jesus as a person or Beatles was greater than God as a thing or whatever it is… I said what I said, and it was wrong, or it was taken wrong, and now all this”.

    Did Gallagher really say this, or is it a joke?

    It’s one thing for hip hop to emulate rock but to straight up bite its style carrying guitars, wearing the extra smedium clothes hip hop loses in the end because hip hop always had its own style that separated it from the other forms of music. And if rappers start looking like rock stars then hip hop looks like a bastard version of rock.
