After having a nightmare with Noel Gallagher this week, Lewis Capaldi’s reign at the top of the charts has come to an end – and he’s tweeted that it’s Noel’s fault.
If there’s anyone you don’t want to be caught up in a bit of showbiz beef with, it’s probably Noel Gallagher. The unashamedly harsh musician is known for his sharp tongue, and this week he turned against poor Lewis.
In an interview with Radio X, he took a swipe at Capaldi saying: “Music is f***ing w*** at the moment. Who’s this Capaldi fella? Who the f***’s that idiot?”
Just sat up in Scotland doing his thing, being at number one for ages, Lewis took the dig well – and in classic Capaldi style, turned it around and made himself the self-deprecating hero once again.
Although Noel was probably one of his childhood idols, Lewis took it on the chin, joking on his Instagram that it was a ‘dream come true’.
But now it’s gone one step too far – with Lewis retweeting the news that he will end his four week run at number one.
Obviously, the tongue-in-cheek comment probably holds no truth – and if anything, the whole debacle has potentially gained him more publicity – but it still seems like a bit of a coincidence.
Before realising he was no longer top of the charts, Lewis was made up with Noel’s quite uncalled for words.
The Scottish singer made an Instagram story that was again a thing of beauty. He shared the clip of Noel’s interview to his Instagram stories and responded with an enthusiastic, ‘f***ing c’mon!’
In a second story, he can be seen leaning beside his screen and as Gallagher asks, ‘who’s this Capaldi fella?’ he points at himself saying ‘me’.

“F***ing peaked,” he adds. “Being slagged off by Noel Gallagher. F***ing c’mon!”
In another he says: “Number one single – who gives a f***? Number one album – who gives a f***? Noel Gallagher has just slagged me off. This is dreams coming true.”
Although, in a discreet dig, he adds: “It’s Father’s Day, I’m being slagged off by a man who is old enough to be my Da’ and I’ve never been more happy. I’ve never been more happy. Happy Father’s Day, Noel.”
We’re still waiting on a response from Noel.
