“I don’t wear a mask, no. The whole fucking thing is bollocks. You’re supposed to wear them in Selfridges but you can fucking go down to the pub and be surrounded by every fucking c**t. Oh well, actually, we don’t have the virus in the pubs, but we have it in Selfridges, oh alright.”
Over to you, Jedward, ‘Our Kid’, etc.

Bono and Noel Gallagher
“I don’t like reading interviews with people and they explain their songs to you line by line. For instance, I was hanging out with our dear friend Bono in the summer, and he was playing me the U2 album before it came out. With him being a lyricist and a singer, he will explain to you what every fucking sentence is about.
“I said to him, ‘Don’t tell me what it’s about. I’ll tell you what it’s about when it’s finished.’ He was like, ‘Ohhh yeah, man.’ It’s like when I first heard Martha, My Dear on the White album, and then I found out he had a dog called Martha. It fucking ruined it, d’ya know what I mean? It’s about a dog? Fuck off! I don’t wanna hear that.”
