Nelly Furtado 'inconsolable' at Oasis split

When Oasis split up last month there was a worldwide shrug of the shoulders and a collective ‘so what?’ It wasn’t as if it hadn’t been on the cards for years, what with the Gallagher’s constant bickering filling the headlines for nearly 15 years. But in one corner of Canada they got the funeral they deserved, with Nelly Furtado lighting a candle and crying in the corner like a Take That fan when Robbie left.

‘I was inconsolable when Oasis split up,’ said the tri-lingual songbird. ‘That band meant the world to me. As a 16-year-old I would write letters to Liam with my photo attached and pray that he would ask me out on a date, but he never did. At college, I learned to play guitar to Wonderwall.

‘Oasis were everything I loved about pop music. They could express emotions with the most simple song structures. They had the kind of brash attitude I could completely relate to.’
