Liam Gallagher: “I’m not taking this off – this is trending”

During the interview by Rihan Daly for NME, Liam Gallagher posed for Tom Oxley.

During his entrance to the London studio wearing his quilted deerstalker he says to the photographer:

Liam’s hat is the same he had onstage at the BRIT Awards a few days ago, and which quickly became a hot topic on Twitter.

Of his partially obscured appearance today, Liam insists, in typically DGAF style.

“Everyone knows what I look like – and if they don’t, they can Google me.”

Liam Gallagher has been one of the UK’s most iconic rock stars with his traditional look, parka, dark sunglasses and mop of hair.

And he’s so instantly recognisable that it’s long been an easy gag.

BRITs host Mo Gilligan resurrected when he delivered a cartoonish Liam impression at this year’s ceremony.

By now, Liam is used to being reduced to caricature.

“It’s a good job I’m not a snowflake,” he says, settling into a charcoal velvet chair and pinning back the ears of his favourite new accessory so that he can hear NME’s questions. “But I don’t give a fuck – it was funny, I thought.” There was one bit that rubbed him the wrong way, though: “He turned round and said, ‘It was better in my day’. I’ve never fucking said it was better. It was good in our day – but we just did what we did and now it’s time for someone else to do what they do. I’ve never said that, so he needs to fucking sort that out.”
