Noel Gallagher Criticises Jay Z
(mtv.co.uk) - Noel Gallagher has told the BBC it is 'wrong' for Glastonbury to have a hip hop headliner.
Jay-Z is set for the pyramid stage at this June's festival but the Oasis guitarist isn't sold on the idea.
He said: "If it ain't broke don't fix it. If you start to break it then people aren't going to go. I'm sorry, but Jay-Z? No chance."
Grumpy old Noel continued: " Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music I'm not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It's wrong."
Organiser Michael Eavis signed the rapper up to attract a younger audience to the festival but so far tickets for this year's festival have failed to sell out.
In the interview Gallagher also confirmed that his group's new album is now finished. However he rubbished reports that Oasis will play a residency at the O2 Arena in London.
He explained: "Any gig you can get to by boat that hasn't got a beach is wrong."
