Noel Gallagher thinks "embarrassing" Miley Cyrus has put female artists back "five years"

The former Oasis guitarist isn't impressed by the 'Wrecking Ball' hitmaker and says she should channel her energies into writing a good song rather than dressing provocatively and twerking with her tongue hanging out.

In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine, he said: "I think there's a trend, unfortunately, in the game, at the minute, of girls desperately trying to be provocative or desperately trying to - in inverted commas - 'start the debate' about some old sh*t or other.

"Because, really, they're not very good. We have it in England regularly, and you have it in the States.
"I feel bad for 'em. It's like, 'Write a good song. Don't make a provocative video - write a good f**king song.' That'll serve you better, I think ... It's a shame, because it puts all the other female artists back about f**king five years.

After watching one of Miley's many jaw-dropping performances on TV, the 46-year-old musician admits he thought, "What the f**k is all this about?"

'Everybody's On The Run' singer Noel insists artists like Emeli Sande or Adele have far more credibility than someone like Miley, even though he finds them boring.

The songwriter added: "Now, Adele and Emeli Sande - that music, to me, is like music for fucking grannies, but at least it's got some kind of credibility.

"It's just embarrassing. Be good. Don't be outrageous. Anybody can be outrageous! I could go to the Rolling Stone office and sh*t on top of a boiled egg, right? And people would go, 'Wow, f***ing hell, that's outrageous!' But is it any good? No, because, essentially, it's just a sh*t on top of a boiled egg."
