The 38-year-old Beady Eye singer and ex-Oasis frontman rubbished the rapper's Rocawear clothing line. "You're going to be f---ing arrested wearing his gear and you're going to pull a really nice-looking bird wearing mine," he told Spin. Gallagher launched his own label called Pretty Green in 2009. Inspired by bands from the 1960s it is, according to Gallagher, "timeless, classic clobber."
It's not the first time that Jay-Z has been on the receiving end of a Gallagher outburst. Ahead of his headline appearance at Glastonbury in 2008, Liam's older brother Noel said, "I'm not having hip hop at Glastonbury. It's wrong." Jay-Z went on to win over the festival crowd opening his set with a cover version of Oasis's 1995 No. 2 hit 'Wonderwall.'
Beady Eye, meanwhile, have announced that they will be headlining an outdoor gig at Somerset House in London this summer. They play the venue on July 12 as part of the Summer Series of concerts. Other artists appearing include Blondie, My Morning Jacket and Eels.
