Noel Gallagher can’t live a world where Ed Sheeran is a hit, but Ed Sheeran sure can. The 23-year-old “I See Fire” singer has fired back at the former Oasis rocker for dissing him in an interview.

Speaking with NME, Gallagher, 47, expressed his annoyance over what’s happening in the music scene these days, specifically Sheeran adding two more dates at the Wembley Stadium in London due to popular demand. For Gallagher, that’s a travesty. He just simply couldn’t understand how the younger singer can sell out shows in a venue that can accommodate 80,000 people.

“I don’t think I can live in a world where that’s even possible. When you hear that kind of polished pop and then there’s a ginger guy with a f------ guitar it seems subversive, but it’s f------ not,” he said.

Unfortunately for him, that “kind of polished pop” is real, and the “ginger guy” with a guitar has just really sold out shows. According to ginger guy himself, it’s a pretty enjoyable world to live in, actually.

Sheeran has three sold out schedules for Wembley in July. Along with AC/DC, Ariana Grande, Eric Church and Madonna, he is also set to perform live at the Grammy Awards on February 8. He is also nominated for three gongs at the music awards, namely Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album for “X,” and Best Song Written for Visual Media for “I See Fire.”

Meanwhile, Gallagher also blasted the music scene these days, wishing everything is back to the way they were in the ‘80s.

“It’s a strange time, and it seems like the whole thing is embedded for good now, for f------ forever. It’s not all over, but I’ll go back to the way it was in the early ‘80s where indie bands are the alternative thing, the lower level. In the early ‘80s everyone at indie labels, even major labels, were trying to push this music to the fore because everything else was s---, and maybe it’ll happen again, but I don’t see it for the next decade,” he continued to NME.

He is set to release his second studio album “Chasing Yester” in March.
