Noel Gallagher doesn’t “give a s**t” about the misconceptions people have of him
The 50-year-old rocker has admitted that whilst he isn’t an inherently “private person”, he doesn’t actively share information with the public.
“I don’t have social media accounts,” mused the Ballad Of The Mighty I singer in a Facebook Live chat with Noisey. “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 rocker – 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”.
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.”
