He is well known for saying it like it is and Noel Gallagher has really not held back while talking about Tidal.

The former Oasis singer has slammed the new streaming platform – which is owned by Jay Z – as well as the team behind it.

He criticised the stars –which includes including Coldplay's Chris Martin, Madonna, Rihanna and Kanye West - for thinking "they're the f***in' Avengers".

Speaking about his views on Tidal, he said: "I thought that the people on the stage might want to be a little bit aware that they don't look like Jay Z's minions. Madonna was pretty cool the way she cocked her leg up on that desk and signed the [declaration].

"I think ultimately with the spiel they came out with, it was like, 'Do these people think they're the f***in' Avengers? They're going to save the f***in' [world].'"

The singer explained he even approached Chris Martin to ask what he expected to gain from investing in the streaming service, adding the supporters should make a good song before finding a fair way for people to listen to it.

He told Rolling Stone magazine: "I was speaking to Chris [Martin] the day after, and I said, 'Are you after a Nobel Peace Prize? Is that what you're after?' They were like, 'We're going to f***in' save the music business.' And I'm just sitting there, thinking [imitates smoking marijuana] you might want to write a decent chorus for a f***in' start. Never mind f***in' royalties and the 'power of music'. Write a tune. F***in' start with that."

During the interview he also claimed that his brother Liam had made-up the rumours that Oasis are having a reunion - which Noel has not reacted too kindly to.
