In a fight we never saw coming, former Oasis star he has hit out at and branded her ‘jealous’ of Britpop icons.

The Dance The Night hitmaker had been which saw , , and Pulp topping the UK charts.

She insisted the music had influenced her new album and lead single Houdini but admitted she has to ‘separate the art from the person.’

Dua, 28, then blasted the behaviour of some artists – without naming names – for being ‘obnoxious’ and making it their stage persona.

Hearing this, Liam hit out at the saying she was ‘just jealous’ on X when directly asked about her comments, assumed to be about himself, and Noel Gallagher, by a fan.

His comments didn’t go down well as the user, Robert Lewis, told the 51-year-old Wonderwall star to ‘come off it’ as Dua has no reason to be ‘jealous’.

They wrote: ‘Come off it, Dua Lipa’s one of the biggest pop stars on the planet – she’s not jealous of you and she has a fair point Liam. You and Noel were utterly obnoxious in the ’90s and ’00s, and many other men in Britpop bands were misogynistic p***ks.’

Clarifying his comment, Liam hit back: ‘She’s jealous we can swear and tell people to f**k off and she can’t.’

He later said the X storm that ensued had left him ‘exhausted’ when a fan asked to him about the clash.

Dua has not said anything since but the original comments came from an interview with magazine in which she said: ‘I haven’t had any encounters with [Blur or Oasis], actually.

‘Sometimes you have to separate the art from the person… It’s more like the music element, the aspect of it that I’m really connected to.

‘The way that [some Britpop artists] acted, the things that they’ve done, they’re obnoxious for sure. That’s their whole thing.’

She believes this rockstar lifestyle no longer has a place and pondered why there was so much ‘toxicity’ in the expectations around musicians..

‘If they weren’t like that, they would’ve been seen as boring, and I think that’s such a bad way to see things,’ the Levitating singer said.

Despite calling out their behaviour, her third album – known as DL3 – will take inspiration from them but the star added that her new songs feel ‘a bit more raw’.

Dua was actually directly inspired by Liam’s solo tune I’m Free from his 2022 LP C’mon You Know and even recruited his ‘rave consultant’ for the song, Danny L Harle, as one of the producers on her psychedelic new record.

She shared: ‘I want to capture the essence of youth and freedom and having fun and just letting things happen, whether it’s good or bad.

‘You can’t change it. You just have to roll with the punches of whatever’s happening in your life.’
