    Liam Gallagher has called out the "shady little f***ers" in the music industry in light of the Harvey Weinstein scandal

    The former Oasis frontman has addressed the mountain of allegations made against the disgraced Hollywood producer, who has been accused of sexually harassing and assaulting numerous women, including many famous actresses


    The 44-year-old rocker says he's aware that there are people abusing their power by preying on employees within the music industry, however, he's never been a witness to anything inappropriate himself because he and his Oasis bandmates - including his brother, guitarist Noel Gallagher - were too much "in their own bubble" during the mid-90s to notice anything "weird".

    Speaking to the latest issue of FAULT magazine, Liam said: "You know it's there. The shady little f***ers at the top. It's not even with just men and women, it's men and men too. All these pop bands - you hear about it with Take That but I've never witnessed any of it.

    "Nobody would come near us. We were caught up in our own bubble. We weren't hanging about with the record company.

    "We'd go to the awards show and they'd be there, but we'd just get off and do our own thing. And I certainly didn't see any weird s**t."

    The 'For What It's Worth' hitmaker has one simple resolution for people like Weinstein, and that is to "get rid" of the "sh*t bags".

    He told the publication: "Obviously get rid of all the sh*t bags. Obviously, if everyone took care of their sh*t - everything would be cool. We all live together under one sky at the end of the day. Everyone just needs to cool the f**k out."

    Liam is not the first artist to speak out against apparent misconduct in the music business.

    Sir Tom Jones recently claimed the problem of sexual harassment is rife in the music world too, recalling a time he was forced to get out of an uncomfortable situation when he was propositioned during a work meeting.

    When asked whether he had personally experienced sexual abuse in the music industry himself, he said: "It wasn't bad, just somebody tried to pull ... it was a question and I said, 'No thank you.' You think, 'Well, I've got to get away from this person and it can't be like this.'

    "You should know that yourself, you don't do things just because you think, 'I should do this.' Your own mind will tell you that. Not just in showbusiness, but in any thing you're in."
