Noel says women struggle in the music industry

Noel Gallagher doesn’t think Adele will last much longer in the music industry.

The Oasis rocker, 44, says despite winning a string of awards including 2 Grammys and a Brit, 23-year-old Adele will struggle to stay in the charts – because she’s a woman.

‘I feel sorry for girls in the music industry. They do have a very short shelf life,’ says Noel.

‘For instance, Duffy: who? Gone. She was massive.

‘And I don’t doubt for a second that the same thing will happen to Adele.’

And it’s not just career longevity that female singers have to worry about – Noel reckons that men in their 40s are more attractive than women of the same age.

‘Grazia put me at the top of their Chart Of Lust twice last year, so I must be doing something right,’ Noel tells Live magazine.

‘A woman of a similar age wouldn’t look as good.’
