Noel Gallagher said that he hired a private jet for a recent holiday to avoid wearing a mask.
The musician, 53, is speaking out about his decision not to wear masks in certain settings where the UK government has made it mandatory.
Noel believes that the mandatory mask wearing is impacting his ‘civil liberties’ and suggested that the pandemic as a whole was ‘f**king b******s’.
He was so against having to wear masks on a plane, the rockstar said that he hired a private jet to avoid having to wear a mask on a commercial flight.
Wearing a face mask on such a flight would have been a ‘ballache’, according to the Oasis man.
Gallagher told The Sun: ‘There was six of us and we were like, “f going to Heathrow and being marched around and being told what to do”.
‘So we went by private jet and it was very pleasant.
‘It’s not something I do often because they are expensive for what they are but the ballache of having to get on a plane in a mask.
‘I was just like, “F*** it”.’
Gallagher follows Stone Roses star Ian Brown as a big name star who has spoken out against the use of masks and the validity of the pandemic in general.
Brown recently tweeted: ‘So im a Conspiracy Theorist HA! a term invented by the lame stream media to discredit those who can smell and see through the government/media lies and propaganda.’
In Ireland it remains mandatory to wear a face mask on public transport, which is especially important in the face of rising COVID-19 cases in Dublin.
