Oasis frontman Noel Gallagher learnt the hard way that you just DON'T mess with Ed Sheeran, after he made a throwaway comment about the singer earlier this month.
Speaking to music magazine NME, Noel branded Ed's music as "polished pop," adding, "I don’t think I can live in a world where [Sheeran playing Wembley] is even possible." Ouch!
Ed was quick to respond with a tongue-in-cheek message on Twitter to put Noel in his place:
@IndyMusic i can live in it, its really enjoyable

Now though, the Thinking Out Loud singer has revealed that he also contacted Noel directly to get some mischievous revenge. "I texted him because I have his number and asked him if he’d like some tickets," the singer told Radio 2. "He wrote back, ‘You cheeky so and so. My daughter would love some.'"
See, even Noel can't resist Ed's charms!
Luckily the Oasis star's comments won't result in a lifelong feud, as Ed says he understands that these things have to happen. "He’s always going to be the guy who’s outspoken,” he said. “I wasn’t offended. I found it quite cool to be in his interview."
The red-haired singer added that every celebrity needs a certain level of criticism to stay down to earth. "“I get a lot of stick from press and people but it’s good to get stick,” he said. “If you speak to anyone from Adele to Chris Martin, they would say they are grounded cos they get a hiding from the press."
We're not sure we'd have taken things quite so well, but kudos to Ed!
