WHILE Covid has made heroes of some, it’s forced several celebrities into becoming raving lunatics. Here are the worst:
The guitar-noodling lockdown sceptic recently said that he won’t perform in venues where people require proof of vaccination to attend. Given that those will be the rules he’d better enjoy playing concerts to silence – which, given the ageing audience still interested in seeing him perform live he’s probably used to.
Northern Ireland’s most famous fedora-wearer has become perhaps the defining anti-lockdown artist. Having long had a reputation as a grumpy prick, his decision to release an entire album of dreary anti-lockdown songs has elevated him to being a weapons-grade bellend.
Throughout lockdown the part-time actor and full-time arsehole has really entered his own league of twattery. From his nonsensical bid to become the Mayor of London to slagging off the NHS, he has been the gammon gift that keeps on giving if that gift is a box full of idiotic opinions designed purely to antagonise.
Having made a career from writing songs with utterly meaningless lyrics, it should come as no surprise that he has gone on several equally incoherent tirades about mask-wearing. Noel should be well aware that if more people agree with Liam Gallagher on a subject than with you, your opinions are deeply flawed and terminally shameful.
The former Stone Roses singer’s staunch opposition to vaccines comes as something of a surprise given he spent the majority of the late 80s and 90s pumping his body full of suspect chemicals. His decision to cancel performances where vaccines are required should be seen as a relief to anyone who’s pretended to enjoy any album he’s released since Second Coming.
