Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan has hit out at One Direction, insisting they are five "no-ones" who have simply "won the lottery".

Tom Meighan has hit out at One Direction for being five "no-ones" who have "won the lottery".

The 34-year-old frontman - whose band Kasabian picked up Best British Band, Best Album and Best Quote at last night's (18.02.15) NME Awards - slammed the boy band, insisting they have got lucky with their careers and will split soon.

He said: "They're f***ing millionaires but they're five no-ones who won the lottery. They're massive, but they're a product, we're not.

"They're like shampoo. You buy it to put in your hair and wash it out, like the Spice Girls.

"Thing is, they'll all get angry with each other, fall out and do too many drugs. They'll wanna be f***ing arty and do something clever and they'll break up."

Kasabian were nominated for eight awards at last night's London ceremony but didn't receive any nods for the BRITs, however, guitarist Serge Pizzorno insists the 'Eez-Eh' hitmakers - also made up of Chris Edwards and Ian Matthews - are the real winners, and he will be smoking cannabis and getting drunk in the sun when the ceremony is on next week.

He added to The Sun newspaper: "I'm gonna be at the beach somewhere, smoking great weed and drinking incredible rum cocktails.

"That's much more than a consolation prize. It's a winner."


The lairy indie combo have headlined T in the Park and Glastonbury with their tried-and-tested piledriving electro-rock anthems.
