With his new album As You Were outselling the rest of the top 20 combined, Liam Gallagher’s debut album is set to become the highest-selling UK number one album since Ed Sheeran’s Divide.
Despite these impressive sales figures, the former Oasis singer is still putting in the hard yards during his publicity tour and during a recent Reddit AMA, Gallagher was more than happy to answer an array of questions from his fans.
If you were watching the most recent episode of The Graham Norton Show, you’ll know that Gallagher was the musical guest for that particular episode and after performing his set, he sat on the couch and answered a few questions.
To be honest, it was a very memorable interview as the singer discussed his ‘little fallout’ with Idris Elba, why saxophones are creepy, his various Twitter spats and that infamous ‘frayed’ relationship with Noel.
During the interview – and most other interviews – Liam rarely sits still and during this particular chat with Norton, the singer was frequently rubbing and scratching his head.
Clearly a nervous tick.
Well, during the recent Reddit AMA, one user decided to ask Gallagher: “How much marching powder had gone up your nose before the Norton interview? Got standing tickets for Birmingham in December, can’t fucking wait! Legend.”
Liam’s answer was vintage.
“I don’t do cocaine before a performance smart ass. I wait until afterwards,” he said.
In Gallagher’s defence, during his recent press junket, he has constantly stated that he’s never felt happier or fitter than he does now and it’s all because he has taken up running as a hobby.
During an interview with Chris Moyles, he said: “I fucking love it (running), man. Some days, when you’re hungover, you’re thinking, I can’t be arsed, but once you get out there, it’s the best thing ever. Everything just falls into place. I run for about an hour. Up hills, down hills. I don’t time myself, I ain’t got one of them silly watches and I don’t listen to music. Just run, I’m like Forrest Gump, but cooler-looking.”
If you’re a fan of the singer and fancy a decent read, here are all the questions that he answered during that Reddit AMA.
