Jade Thirlwall has hit back at Noel Gallagher, after he claimed Little Mix shouldn’t have won a Brit Award.
The popular girl group made history earlier this year when they became the first female band to take home the Best British Group award at the Brits.
The award has previously been won by bands such as The Beatles, Coldplay, Oasis and Take That.
At the time Noel, who was in Oasis himself, said: “Little Mix, with the greatest respect, are not in the same league as Oasis. Not even in the same f*****g sport.”
“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’,” Noel said.
Jade has since hit back at Noel’s comments on an episode of Never Mind The Buzzcocks.
In a preview of the podcast, Jade said of Noel’s comments: “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.”
“Yeah, shame really. Because you know, we are definitely the most successful girl group in the country, but he’s not even the most successful performer in his family.”
Noel performed in Oasis alongside his brother Liam Gallagher.
