Quote Of The Day: Idris Elba On Liam Gallagher, “Fuck That Idiot”

For months now we’ve all been living our lives, going on with our business, eating, sleeping, whatever, completely ignorant to the fact that Liam Gallagher and Idris Elba have been FEUDING! What?! Our least disliked Gallagher brother and one of our most liked dudes?! Get this info into your brains, quick! From NME:

Luther actor Elba first had a run-in with Gallagher in February of this year when it was reported that the pair clashed at an NME Awards after party at The Ivy in London in February (February 27), with eye-witnesses claiming that they had squabbled because Gallagher made fun of Elba’s bobble hat.

Now, in a new interview with GQ, Elba explains precisely what happened on the night and makes his feelings for the Beady Eye frontman clear. Explaining how he met Gallagher in a bar and greeted him with a hug and rubbing him on the head, Elba says: “Didn’t like that. Don’t touch his hair, apparently. Fuck off. Next time walk with a fucking hairdresser, then.” He adds: “Well, ‘I’m a popular rock singer, so I’m going to be mean and fucking horrible to people just because they messed up my look.’ Fuck off.”

Elba, who has starred in Pacific Rim and Prometheus already this year, played ‘Wonderwall’ during a DJ set prior to the GQ interview. Asked by the magazine if he was taking a shot at Gallagher by playing the song, Elba responds: “No! Fuck that idiot. No. I don’t even know what his songs are about now or what band he’s in now. No-one gives a fuck, yeah? He was popular when he was in Oasis.”

(Psst, does Idirs Elba know that “Wonderwall” was from when he was in Oasis?) (Don’t tell him!) I looked up what “bobble hat” was, because what?, and a “bobble hat” is a knit cap with a pom-pon on top. LADIES, CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE HOW CUTE IT WOULD BE TO SEE IDRIS ELBA IN A “BOBBLE HAT”? When the coolest dude wears a bobble hat, you don’t make fun of his bobble hat. You look up where you can buy the most expensive bobble hat and then you ORDER THAT BOBBLE HAT. (Especially when you are Liam Gallagher.) (Put a bobble hat on, Liam.) Now, who even knows what story is true, whether it be bobble hat or hair muss or another story entirely, what we do know is that we are all going to buy bobble hats, right? It seems like maybe we should be stocking up on bobble hats? Lemme know! #bobblehat
