Noel Gallagher: Jade Goody Story Is 'Embarrassing' to Britain

Noel Gallagher: Jade Goody Story Is 'Embarrassing' to Britain-photo

Count Noel Gallagher as one person who isn't hanging on to every detail of the Jade Goody story.

The Oasis frontman tells the Times that the media attention devoted to Goody—a reality-TV star who's undergoing a very public battle with cancer—is "embarrassing" to England.

"I was watching the TV today and they're all outside her house," Gallagher offers. "There's a global crisis apparently going on, and it's, '[British justice secretary] Jack Straw, could you have a look at this?’ [Goody spokesperson] Max Clifford somehow manages to shape the mood of the nation."

Which isn't to say that the 41-year-old rocker, who has a proven track record of making incendiary statements, is completely unsympathetic toward former Celebrity Big Brother contestant Goody.

"I mean, I've got f*ck all against Jade Goody, that’s nothing to do with me," Gallagher insists. "But it bends my head. That, to me, sums up, in one tiny five-minute thing on the news, what an embarrassing place Britain is right now. You might as well shut No 10 Downing Street down and get Max Clifford to run the country."

That doesn't sound like a half-bad idea. And it probably wouldn't be a bad idea for Gallagher to see a doctor himself to get his foot surgically removed from his mouth.

    your all a bunch of f*cken idiots, including the reporter. its not a criticism of Jade Goody, its a criticism of celebrity culture and the obsession and exploitation of her death by media outlets and those representing her. Whoever wrote this atrocity needs to get a f*cken brain implant, how can you misinterpret that its simple. well i guess writing for celebuzz you wouldnt be able to interpret this as a criticism of celbrity culture, because your life is centred around this concept of exploitation and centricity around celebrity lifestyle. gutter report from a gutter reporter working for a gutter news outlet.

    Everyone is entitiled to their opinion, so there are for and against, but there are a lot of people that do care and want to know, i feel very sad for Jade, she had been very brave and made the oportunity's to take care of her sons, she has done a lot more in the last six years then i new about, and she has had a life with Jack and the boys, and seemingly a happy one. So good luck to what she has managed to achieve, its because she is endearing that she has been an interest and made money, i will look forward to reading her books, and if any of it helps cancer charities, that has to be a great thing. I thank her for high lighting cervical cancer, for the sake of many young girls that will listen more to a well known celebrity then anyone else. R.I.P Jade

    completely agree with Noel, when she left celebrity big brother she was hated, people said she was a racist, all sorts. News breaks she's got cancer and she's worshippedand she can do no wrong. What message is that to send out to kids? As soon as you're ill everybody loves you and sympathizes with you? There's been far too much attention on her, there's millions of parents who unfortunately have cancer in this world and the majority are a lot worse off than jade, she's not done anything ground breaking, in fact she's a nobody, anyone can can go on big brother it's ridiculous and just as Noel says it's embarrasing that england, as a nation, knows more about jade goodys cervical cancer than they do about the global crisis that's occuring! What a sorry state!

    Whay is it that all the men on this is sayin thank god to bad rubbish. At the end of the day she is a human being who is dyin from cancer. Since she has been diagnosed she has made everyone aware of the disease and prople are catchin it in time. And for makin abit of money from it well good for her, she wants to make sure her children have the best in life and never go without like every other mother in the world. Grow up all u small minded men..

    I believe that he is completely right. Some people may go all defensive and be all, 'Shes so brave going through all this', but if you ask me, it's overdue karma. Why IS she even famous? She was racist on Big Brother? Big whoop. She's a wreck. There are so many people suffering with Cancer in this world. However, do they find it appropriate to plaster themselves all among the front page of every newspaper? No? Thought not. Its because THEY'RE more brave. They don't need everyone's attention! Sad child, Jade Goody is. A shame to Britain indeed.

    I completely agree. How insensitive can you be!? Whatever anyone thinks of Jade Goody, the woman is dieing from cancer and deserves a little respect. What a jackass. Well Jade isn't the only one in the world with cancer. No one cares about the other Cancer Patients because there not "FAMOUS", Apart from BB what has she done to deserve her fame??

    im sorry but jade goody is a disgrace, every single person on here would have been slating her for her racist comments and for not deserving a single bit of her fame, yet she gets cancer and you love her, shes an inspiration etc etc. Its sickens me to think that the british public can be so fickle, id like living tv to please follow my grandma who has cancer around so that her children, grandchildren can have money (like hers need it), oh and while your at it can you get her a best selling book and a perfume aswell just to get abit more...

    Well said Noel, finally somebody telling it how it is!! Again i have nothing against jade really but if that is newsworthy then these really are worrying times! Think people should start worrying about things that matter and will shape your future like the lisbon treaty, if that was as well published as this story i think there would be a lot more people up in arms!!!

    He's right. i bet everyone on this thing saying like, oh shes beautiful, shes so brave. i bet a week before anyone knew about the illness you was calling her some of the worst things you can, everyone was, everyone is a hipocrite, thats why england IS and embarrasment, everyones f*cking 2 faced, "REALITY TV STAR, WHAT THE f*ck, HOW CAN YOU BE A STAR OF REALITY TV"

    Nah, i live in England, i read the paper everyday, and he's got a good point. It has been made a mockery of, and Max Clifford things hes some kind of brilliant ring master controlling everyone though mindless gossip. He's an idiot. As for Goody, nobody can deny her motives for making her illness so public, and shes done a better job than any chairty organisation has every done to promote awaerness to cervical cancer.

    what jade is going through is very sad and has touched a lot of people, all i can say to Neol Gallagher is that you are not human,and have no feelings to make comments about a dying person, is disgraceful. ps I will never buy anymore of your C.D

    How dreadful an individual is Gallagher? How can he possibly call any other person an embarrassment after all of his loutish antics? What on earth makes him think anyone is remotely interested in anything he offers an opinion on? It's time he used some of his gains to afford himself some coaching in social etiquette. At 41 years of age it's really time for him to grow up just a little. I completely agree. How insensitive can you be!? Whatever anyone thinks of Jade Goody, the woman is dieing from cancer and deserves a little respect. What a jackass.

    that is so insenstive to say something like that. this is a person who has children to look after. he needs to deal with the fact that people actually care about other people and should do the same. he should show some more sympathy no matter what she's done or what's going on.
