Jade Thirlwall has lashed out at Noel Gallagher after he slated her historical Brit Awards win with Little Mix earlier this year.
The petite pop star and her bandmates Perrie Edwards and Leigh-Anne Pinnock became the first girl band in history to take home the prize for Best British Group at the legendary awards ceremony on May 11.
At the time Noel was less than impressed by the result and made his feelings known with some scathing comments undermining the credibility of their win.
He said: "Little Mix, with the greatest respect, are not in the same league as Oasis. Not even in the same f*****g sport."
Noel went on to explain that he couldn't blame the girls for the state of the music business – and that he felt their success was a clear indicator of how clueless modern record labels are.
He continued: "It’s a symptom of the music business chasing the numbers – and there not being any bands or songwriters in those bands.
"Record company guys constantly say, ‘Oh, these guys are the real deal’. And I think, ‘You wouldn’t know the real deal if it f***ing bit you on the a***, mate’."
Far from impressed by the verbal attack on Little Mix Jade has now hit back at the 54-year-old '90s icon.
She took her opportunity to shoot down the former Oasis star's comments during an appearance on Never Mind The Buzzcocks.
A preview clip from the Radio Times’ new podcast features a miffed Jade letting her thoughts on Noel's comments be known.
She said: "Something about that we were undeserving of the Brit Award because we’re women and don’t… well, we do write music, but he thinks we don’t write music.”
A furious Jade then lashed out about Noel's own success as a musician – referencing his brother Liam Gallagher as the true star of his family and indeed Oasis.
