Oasis singer Noel Gallagher has taken a scathing swipe at Sam Smith after he misgendered and labelled them a "f*****g idiot".
The 55-year-old spoke candidly on Dutch radio station Kink where he discussed the current "state" of the music industry particularly pertaining to the genre of pop.
But the conversation then turned to Stay With Me singer Sam, who uses the pronouns they/them.

Noel said: "Music has become quite fractured and chart music is dominated by pop.
"Pop music is alright if the pop stars are cool. Sadly the stars of today are f***ing idiots."
When the Oasis front man was asked who he thought was one of the "uncool" pop stars in the industry at the moment, he quickly replied "Sam Smith".
Noel was then asked why he chose Sam and the singer replied: "Look at him!"
Sam, 30, announced to fans that they decided to change their pronouns in 2019 following a "lifetime of being at war" with their gender.
In an emotional Instagram post, they explained: "I’ve decided to embrace myself for who I am, inside and out.
"I’m so excited and privileged to be surrounded by people that support me in this decision but I’ve been very nervous about announcing this because I care too much about what people think but f**k it!
"I understand there will be many mistakes and misgendering but all I ask is you please please try.
"I hope you can see me like I see myself now."
Although Sam has received support from their fans, friends and family they have also been the target of vicious attacks.
Speaking openly to Zane Lowe on Apple Music 1, the hitmaker revealed that they had been harassed on the streets of England after coming out.
They said: "I think all the only negatives in the struggle have been in my public life and my job. And just the amount of hate and s****ness that came my way was just exhausting.
"It was in the f****** news. Someone spat at me in the street. It's crazy. What I find hard about it is it's like, if that's happening to me and I'm famous, I'm a pop star, can you imagine what other kids, like queer kids are feeling?
"And it's just so sad that we're in 2023 and it's still happening. It's exhausting and especially in England," they shared.
