Solange on Sobriety

Solange Knowles talks to The Guardian about Bjork, lies, Dubai beach sex, seeming high when she’s sober and leaving “the potato man”. Noticeably doesn’t talk about being Beyonce’s sis.

Champagne SuperHova? Ronson vs. Gallagher

Noel Gallagher

Mark Ronson has blogged in response to Noel Gallagher‘s criticism on Friday that he should “learn 3 chords on the guitar and write a tune”.

Noel Gallagher, singer and guitarist from British rock band Oasis, appeared on the BBC Radio 1 Breakfast show with Chris Moyles last week to play the new Oasis single.

In an apparently “still drunk” state Gallagher was asked his opinion on Ronson, to which he responded, “He wants to write his own tunes instead of ruining everybody else’s… Mark Ronson needs to learn 3 chords on the guitar and write a tune.”

On his MySpace blog yesterday Ronson hit back, “I just wanted [Noel Gallagher] to know that i’m actually taking guitar lessons from Jay-Z right now and he’s already taught me both chords to “Wonderwall” (tune!).”

He continues, “In fact, it’s so much fun having Jay teach me all of noel’s songs on the guitar (hooray!) that i”m thinking of doing an Oasis/Jay Z remix album a la “The Grey Album”.”

UK listeners can play back to the Radio 1 interview here until 22 August (interview starts at 1hr 36mins).
