Noel and Lima Gallagher have been embroiled in a well-document feud for the guts of a decade, and now one Irish pop star is caught in the crossfire. 

While discussing his brother's new album As You Were, Noel made some less than flattering remarks about the new music. 

Noel insinuated that his brother's album was written by a number of different people, and that he doesn't feel it merits his opinion.

'I'm not sure I can be arsed formulating an opinion on a record that's written by an army of songwriters,' he told the new issue of I-D magazine. Ouch. 

However, Irish singer Niall Horan was then dragged into the mix. 

'Isn't the one from One Direction doing that?,' Noel said, using Niall's new album Flicker to diss his brother's music.

'The little Irish fella with the acoustic? At least he has the decency to play a guitar.'

'I'm not a fan.'

Perhaps Niall will have a 'I would very much like to be excluded from this narrative' moment much like his celeb pal Taylor?


Niall Horan's ascension to super-stardom was confirmed this weekend as his debut album, Flicker, raced straight to the top of the US charts, and secured itself a place at No.1.

Taking to Twitter to pay tribute to everyone involved in his success, a clearly overwhelmed Niall sounded incredulous over his career trajectory.

In a heartfelt post, he wrote: "My mind is completely blown. An album that I wrote has gone to #1 in the United States and I cannot thank you guys enough for supporting it."

"It’s been a crazy couple of years for me between writing, recording and promoting this record,” the Mullingar-native continued. “Today it really feels like all the hard work has paid off."

The singer went on to thank his label, his management and his band for their guidance and support before turning his attention to his loyal fanbase.

"You are incredible!" he told them. "The love I get on a daily basis is amazing. Thank you and thank you again!"

Prior to securing the No. 1 spot, Niall tweeted his enthusiasm over his debut album's release, telling fans: "It's something I've worked really hard on and I'm incredibly proud of it."

Elaborating on the personal nature of the record, he added;" This is the first time I've put my thoughts and emotions on paper and then onto record and it feels really good."

As if we couldn't love that lad enough.


We'll be honest, if you had told us two years ago that Niall Horan would end up being the most successful member of One Direction we probably would have laughed at the idea – but oh how wrong we were.

With two top 10 singles and a critically acclaimed album under his belt, the Mullingar native has made quite the name for himself as a solo artist.

And while the 24-year-old is enjoying a successful career in the music industry, he admits a little recognition wouldn't go amiss.

During a recent interview on New York City radio station Fresh 102.7's Karen & Jeffrey, Niall jokingly said he would “rip someone's arm off” for a Grammy Award.

“Just to be nominated would be amazing. I've spent so many years watching it. It comes with all the prestige that everyone thinks it does. That would be amazing; a far cry but we'll see what happens.”

The singer, whose debut solo album, Flicker, dropped last Friday recently sold out a night at Dublin's 3Arena, however, a second date was added due to phenomenal demand. Tickets are available here.

Niall Horan is no stranger to the Ellen De Generes studio set, and yet he still finds himself blindsided by the chat show's host unconventional approach to her interviews at times.

While appearing on the show this week, Niall fielded the standard questions; career, love-life and his relationship with the four guys he travelled the world with as part of One Direction.

Lulling him into a false sense of security, Ellen got Niall chatting about Liam, Louis and Harry before pulling a stunt which left the Mullingar-native shrieking in his chair.

"I honestly… eh… cardiac arrest nearly happened there," a distinctly uncomfortable-looking Niall told Ellen after having the bejaysus scared out of him in front of a live audience.

"Why is it not just straightforward on this show?" he asked Ellen who looked pretty damn proud of her 'Harry' stunt.

And if you suggest, for even a moment, that that didn't scare the life out of you, you're lying.

Ahead of the release of Niall Horan's highly-anticipated debut solo album, Flicker, Apple Music have revealed details of its upcoming short film which offers fans an exclusive behind-the-scenes look at the making of the record.

According to The Irish Mirror, On the Record: Flicker, is set to feature a number of candid interviews as well as footage of acoustic rehearsals, and an insight into the former One Direction star's creative process.

The album and film are both set to drop on Friday, October 20, though Niall will host a private screening for fans in Los Angeles on October 19.

The exclusive preview will be followed by full live performance of the new album.

In the trailer, Niall says: “I always knew that if I ever made a solo album what it would sound like.”

“I spent the last year and a half between the four walls of a studio and I'm ready to go and show how proud of the album I am.”

Niall Horan was once a part of arguably one of the most successful boy bands of our time. 

However, the Mullingar native has told Shortlist magazine that while he may be one of the music industry's most famous faces, he doesn't feel conspicuous in his home town. 

'No one blows smoke up my arse back home,' the told the mag.

'All my schoolmates, friends from Ireland, I fall right back into that group, and I don’t feel like Famous Niall Horan.'

The pop star went on to describe a trip to NYC he took with his pals from the Emerald Isle. 

'Sixteen of us went to New York for St Paddy’s day last year, dressed in green Irish suits and face paint.'

'We looked like a load of d***heads, running around the place.'

'It was such a good laugh. Nobody recognised me, nobody gave a s***.'

He also added that while in London, people don't really pay too much attention to him in public either.

'In London, people don’t really pay attention to me – in a good way,' he told Shortlist. 

'I’m not saying everyone should know who I am, but I go on the Tube, or walk down the street, absolutely no problem.'

'I went to Chelsea vs Tottenham at Wembley, and got the Tube there with the Chelsea fans. Nothing. Londoners are in their own little world, aren’t they?'


Be still, our beating hearts, for the one and only Niall Horan has just bestowed his latest music video on the world. 

Taking to Twitter, the former 1D member shared his new video for his just-released single Too Much to Ask. 

The single comes from his first solo studio album, Flicker. 

'It's been a long time coming but I'm delighted to announce that my new album 'Flicker' is out on the 20th of October,' he tweeted previously. 

'I hope you enjoy it.'

The entire album is due to be released on October 20.


Niall Horan has just revealed that he will be dropping some brand new, solo tunes on October 20.

The One Direction star tweeted to his fans to give away the hotly anticipated date.

His first solo studio album will be called Flicker.

'It's been a long time coming but I'm delighted to announce that my new album 'Flicker' is out on the 20th of October,' he tweeted. 

'I hope you enjoy it.'

To give fans a little bit more to celebrate, the Mullingar man also revealed that a new single will be dropping at midnight EPT.

The new tune is called Too Much To Ask. 

'It's a very special song to me and I hope you like it,' he said.

We can't wait to hear their new album. 


A list of Ireland's most well-off entertainers has been revealed – and there's no prizes for guessing which Mullingar man nabbed the top spot.

Niall Horan has been named as Ireland's richest entertainer, aged just 23, and while you might think a young man like himself might be a bit reckless with his €44 million fortune, financial experts think quite the opposite.

According to The Mirror, it seems the Slow Hands singer learned how to manage money from a young age and is actually well-informed when it come to business and finance.

Other famous faces appearing on the list include Wicklow native, Hozier, who is worth an estimated €4.5 million, while Jedward have a net worth of €1.5 million.

The names were revealed ahead of Ireland’s Rich List, which is due to air on RTÉ 2 this Thursday.

Presenter Joe O’Shea said: “There were a few surprises on the list for me but Niall wasn’t one of them, because One Direction was very much a global vessel.”

“I think he realises how lucky he is. He’s so young and he has all this money. But he has a good head on his shoulders and he’s learned a lot from his years in the music industry.”


Niall Horan kicked off his first solo tour with a sold out gig in Dublin's Olympia Theatre on Tuesday night, but despite his phenomenal success, the Mullingar native remains as humble as ever.

It's no secret that Niall and the rest of the One Direction boys have some of the most dedicated fans in the music business,

However, the Slow Hands singer was left concerned after one particularly devoted group set up camp some 24 hours before his scheduled preformance at London's Sheperds Bush Empire this evening. 

Tweeting last night, Niall said that although he “really appreciated the love,” he was worried that fans would be on the street all night and asked them to “please stay safe.”

A short time later, fans revealed that Niall has sent his personal body guard, Basil Whelan, to go to the venue with cakes and hot drinks from a nearby café.

He then returned the following morning with shopping bags full breakfast sandwiches to dish out to dedicated fans.

Of course, the after news of Niall's sweet gesture hit Twitter, fans around the world praised his kind-hearted nature – and can you blame them?

Niall really is too pure for this world. 


Ticketmaster have issued a number of warnings for fans attending Niall Horan's homecoming concert in Dublin's Olympia Theatre tonight.

Those who purchased tickets for the highly anticipated gig using a credit card have been told the card owner must be present upon arrival.

In cases where multiple tickets were purchased using the same credit card, additional guests will have their IDs cross checked against a purchase list.

In an email sent out last night, concert-goers were told that failure to comply with these rules would result in denied entry:

“Any ticket holder not able to provide the required purchase and identification documents will be denied entry to the venue.

“Any customer found to have exceeded the show’s ticket limit will have their additional transactions cancelled.

Meanwhile, Niall has been posting on social media ahead of tonight's gig, admitting he is both “nervous and excited.”

The Slow Hands singer also took to Instagram to share his delight at getting the chance to share the stage with Dublin-based band, Wild Youth. 

Doors open at 7pm, with special guests, Wild Youth, due to kick off at around 8.15pm, while Niall Horan is expected to take the stage around 9.15pm.
