If I’ve learned one thing from watching The Simpsons, it’s that nothing is worse than lying through a song. Taking your revenge, however, is pretty cool, especially when you are Jay-Z.
At Madison Square Garden last night Jay-Z offered the following rhyme: "That bloke from Oasis said I couldn’t play guitar/Somebody should have told him I’m a fucking rock star". He then followed it up with a line from “Wonderwall,” which he also used to open his set at Glastonbury: “Today is gonna be the day that I’m gonna throw it back to you.”
The rap is the latest salvo in the ongoing feud between Jay-Z and Noel Gallagher, which started when the Oasis member questioned whether rap had a place at the Glastonbury festival. Though Jay-Z seemingly is trying to get a more mileage out of the comments, Gallagher played them off, saying that “I wasn’t saying that I was better than Jay-Z as a person or rock was greater than hip-hop.” Gallagher also said that he hoped to put the feud to rest and some day share a beer with Jay-Z. If he truly wants the transatlantic madness to end, Gallagher should at least spring for some champagne. [NME]
