Oasis tough nut Liam Gallagher has spoken out about his bust up with Idris Elba over his barnet after The Wire star allegedly messed his hair up before a gig.

According to Liam, only him and his barber are allowed near his hair, so the incident resulted in a scrap at an awards bash.

When asked about the incident, Liam said: “I didn’t steal Idris’s hat, or grab it.

“I don’t go grabbing anyone. He messed my f***ing hair up, so I pulled his hat off and booted it across the room, and that’s it.”

When asked if he was intimidated by Idris’s muscular physique, Liam added: “I don’t give a f***. I didn’t know who he was.

“I still don’t know who he is and I don’t give a f*** who he is.

“You don’t touch a man’s haircut, man, especially if you’ve got a red bobbly hat on. So let’s get that one straight. He f***ed my hair up — so the hat got it.”

The Oasis frontman commented on Idris’s hat, saying it reminded him of the daft woolly hat-wearing ITV soap character Benny Hawkins and added: “It’s not f***ing Crossroads, is it?”

The next Beady Eye gig is an in-store show at London’s Rough Trade East shop on Monday to launch the album.
