Liam Gallagher reckons One Direction are his biggest competition

In terms of music, who does Liam Gallagher have to compete with? One Direction, of course.

“Who’s my biggest competition?” he asks. “One Direction.”

He was keen to add, “I’m not into their music,” but it sounds like he has respect for what Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles, and Louis Tomlinson have achieved.

“Fair play to them, man, they got lucky – like we all do, I guess – and they’re just going for it.

“That’s what it’s all about, innit? It’s all going to end at some point. And when it ends, you want to make sure you’ve ticked all the boxes.”
