Noel Gallagher's Amy blast

Oasis rocker Noel Gallagher has branded troubled singer Amy Winehouse a "destitute horse in high heels"

Noel Gallagher has branded Amy Winehouse a "destitute horse in high heels".

The Oasis rocker blasted the 'Rehab' singer and her friend, Babyshambles singer Pete Doherty, for using their drug taking as a way to get attention and insists their antics should take place behind closed doors.

He said: "Amy and Pete Doherty are attention seekers. You can take drugs and be a f***ed up junkie without anybody having an inkling. Who goes for the papers at 3am? On crack? Who does that? Somebody who's an attention seeker.

"There's no pride in junkies, particularly not in people like that, going out looking like a f***ing destitute horse in high heels."

Noel has also urged Amy, 25, to concentrate on her music and likened Pete to a character from Charles Dickens' classic novel 'Oliver Twist'.

He added: "My advice to Amy would be to get in the studio and make another album - quickly before you forget how to do it. And that's what the other character, Fagin, needs to do too. And he needs to stop wearing that suit and that hat."

Last week, Noel labelled Amy a "junkie f**k up".

The guitarist - who stopped taking drugs in 1999 - blasted: "People like Amy have got no pride in themselves. I don't care for f**k-ups. If she carries on like this how will she end up?"
