after brit awards

can we talk about ms. jade thirlwall for a minute? the girl who since she was little has been working her ass off to be a singer/performer? the one who would work any gig cause all she wanted to do was perform? the one who went through so much shit growing up and found solace in music? the one who tried out for xfactor twice and was rejected twice? the one who still had the courage to audition for the third time and was so hesitant to be part of a group? look at where she is now…a brit winner!! i am so beyond happy for her. our little jeed has come so far!!!

Noel & Damon
  • “It was a great relief. I’m glad I’ve seen him and shook his hand and apologised for all the shit,” .When asked if he would rather record with Damon Albarn or Radiohead, the ex-Oasis guitarist said: “If I was going to make a record it’d be Damon. For a start, he’s as mad as a box of frogs. Number two, he’d get loads of hip-hop dudes working on it, which itself would be mental. And number three? It would be a better record.” NOEL, Brits Awards 2012
  • “What, me and Damon? Well, I am single and ready to mingle… I mean musically speaking… of course.” NOEL, Jonathan Ross 2012
  • Blur’s Damon Albarn and former Oasis star Noel Gallagher put aside their years of Britpop feuding to literally kiss for the cameras at EMI’s post-Brit Awards after party. Gallagher, 44, kissed both hands of Albarn, 43, before planting a smacker on his lips in front of shocked guests.” The Standard 2012
  • “We were both invited by War Child so we were sat on the same table. And it turns out, after all these years, that we’re both actually really genial fellas. We got absolutely drunk and told One Direction to fuck off in unison, That was the highlight of the night.“ NOEL, Time Out Dubai Mag 2013
  • Now, in Albarn’s suite, named the Blue Room, his security guard Smoggy and his trusted technician Stu Lowbridge are staring at the cartoon drawings of various Manchester City football legends on the wall trying to guess who they are. Someone suggests that Albarn calls his friend, the noted Man City fan Noel Gallagher, for assistance. “Noel texted me earlier, to wish me luck” he says with an approving nod. “Very classy”. What a nice man. “He really is” agrees Albarn, a note of resignation in his voice.” DAMON, Q Magazine 2014
  • “I still see Noel from time to time. We text a bit,” Albarn says. When asked if the pair would be making a record together, he replied, “I can imagine that being a very distinct possibility at some point in the future. But, as yet we haven’t really talked about it, although…OK we have a little bit. We’re talking. It’s not anything to get excited about yet. I mean, he’s doing his thing. He’s finishing a new record. I’ve got my record coming out, but the principle of us making music together is something…you know, it would be fair to say, we have discussed it at least once.”DAMON, NME 2014
  • “Pop music was so different to how it is now. I always end up having this conversation in one form or another with Noel when we have a drink together. We seem so different to the Ed Sheerans of this world.” DAMON, Mojo 2015
  • “Noel said at the time something like he hoped I catch AIDS and I die… (laughs). Frankly, we were idiots and misfit kids. Noel is an amazing musician and a very interesting man. All that is long gone and we have very good relations and mutual respect” DAMON, Rolling Stone France 2015
  • “I was around at his place and he was playing me his album before it came out. It was literally like saying, ‘Let’s go for a drink’. He said, ‘We should do it one day.’ I would be f**king very, very, very interested, but I’m going on tour now for a couple of years, and by the time I get back, he’ll be on tour – so if it ever happens, I don’t know. But turns out he’s a bit of a dude. I thought Everyday Robots was great, then I went to see him at the Albert Hall. I thought it was going to be this real intimate kind of thing, and I was amazed at how joyous it all was. It was f**king great, one of the best gigs I’d seen last year. Maybe the best. Funny lad.” NOEL, The Ticket Irish Times 2015
  • “(About a potential collaboration with Damon Albarn) We talked about it again a few days ago. The thing is that he finishes his tour when I start mine. And you know Damon, by the time I get back, he’ll be playing at the other side of the planet (laughs). But he lives near me, so I hope we will have the occasion to find the time to do it. Anayway, I’d really like to be in a studio with him, see if we can write a song together. If you had told me one day I’d be happier to be in a studio with Damon Albarn than with my brother, I probably would have tell you to fuck off (laughs).” NOEL, Plugged Magazine 2015 
  • “I’ve become friendly with Damon. There has not been any great, massive plan and I’m sure - I know the way that things work - by the time I get finished with this project he’ll be starting some Vietnamese opera or something. And by the time he’s finished with that I’ll be back out on something else. But if we had a spare day, I’d definitely give it a shot. He’s a good lad. I like him.” NOEL, The Sun 2015
  • “We were in a nightclub — I hadn’t spoken to him for years, but I hadn’t slagged him off for years either. Me, the wife and the kids really liked Gorillaz, so Sara said, ‘I’m gonna go over and tell him that we like Gorillaz.’ I said, ‘Go on, then.’ She came back and said Damon was being weird, saying, ‘Who sent you over here to say that?’ So when I passed him in the corridor, we said, ‘Let’s go to the bar and get a beer.’ And he said, ‘Well, what was that all about?’ And I said, ‘Yeah, sorry ’bout that.’ It was a bit weird, but it wasn’t like two grown men having a weep about it. It was more like ‘You know what? That time was fucking brilliant, that stuff was fucking great!" NOEL,The Sunday Times 2015
  • “He’s making a new Gorillaz album and he’s got my number, so he’s only got to ask. There is talk of doing something but I’m not sure what it is. You can bet your life the minute I finish this tour he’ll go out on his,” he said. “I mean trying to get the two of us in the same room would be a fuckiing miracle. But I’m certainly open to the idea, for sure.” NOEL, Bournemouth Echo 2016
