Liam Gallagher has branded Dua Lipa "jealous" after she blasted the "obnoxious" behaviour of the likes of Oasis and Blur in the 1990s.

The 'Dance The Night' hitmaker heaped praise on the iconic Britpop acts but insisted while they have influenced her upcoming new album, she makes a conscious choice to "separate the art from the person".

Asked if she's met either of the bands, she recently told Rolling Stone magazine: "I haven’t had any encounters with them, actually.

“Sometimes you have to separate the art from the person… It’s more like the music element, the aspect of it that I’m really connected to.

"The way that [some Britpop artists] acted, the things that they’ve done, they’re obnoxious for sure. That’s their whole thing.”

The 28-year-old singer pondered the way people expected rock stars to behave in the past, and insisted things needed to change.

She added: “There’s so much toxicity in the way people wanted their artists or their musicians.

“If they weren’t like that, they would’ve been seen as boring, and I think that’s such a bad way to see things.”

Now, former Oasis frontman Liam, 51, has responded to a social media user who asked what he thought of the 'Houdini' hitmaker's remarks.

The X user posted: "Dua Lipa said that bands like Oasis and Blur’s behaviour are “obnoxious”. What do you think about that?"

To which, Liam replied: "She’s just jealous."

The user then laid into the 'Wonderwall' hitmaker and insisted Dua has no reason to be "jealous" of him or the likes of Damon Albarn and Noel Gallagher.

They responded: "Come off it, Dua Lipa's one of the biggest pop stars on the planet - she's not jealous of you and she has a fair point Liam. You and Noel were utterly obnoxious in the '90s and '00s, and many other men in Britpop bands were misogynistic [redacted]."

Clarifying his comment, Liam wrote back: "She’s jealous we can swear and tell people to [redacted] off and she can’t."

Despite calling out their behaviour, Dua took inspiration from Oasis and Blur on her third album.

She explained to the publication: “This record feels a bit more raw. I want to capture the essence of youth and freedom and having fun and just letting things happen, whether it’s good or bad.

"You can’t change it. You just have to roll with the punches of whatever’s happening in your life.”

The Grammy winner was even directly inspired by Liam's solo tune 'I'm Free' from his 2022 LP 'C'MON YOU KNOW’ and recruited his "rave consultant" for the song, Danny L Harle, as one of the producers on her psychedelic new record.
