Noel Gallagher blasts 'junkie' Amy

Oasis guitarist Noel Gallagher has branded Amy Winehouse a "junkie f**k-up" who can't handle fame

Noel Gallagher has branded Amy Winehouse a "junkie f**k-up".

The Oasis guitarist says the singer, who has a well-documented problem with heroin and crack-cocaine, is a drug addict because she can't handle the pressures of fame and having a hit album.

He fumed to Blender magazine: "People like Amy have got no pride in themselves. My message to her would be, 'Go make another record, or did the pressure of this one fry your little brain so you became a junkie? I don't care for f**k-ups. If she carries on like this how will she end up? Who gives a s**t?"

This is the second time 41-year-old Noel, who quit drugs in 1999 without going to rehab, has blasted the troubled singer.

Earlier this week, 'The Shock of the Lightning' rocker claimed 25-year-old Amy would be dead before he writes another song.

Noel - who says he has a number of songs left over from sessions for Oasis' new album 'Dig Out Your Soul' which would be perfect for Amy - said: "I've got a backlog of 30-odd songs just sitting there. I don't know what the f**k I'm going to do with them all.

"Could I give them to someone else to sing? Well, there's a few that sound like girls could sing them, but who? F**king Amy Winehouse? She'll be dead before I write another one."
