Pop star Mika has spoken out against ALAN MCGEE after the music mogul launched a vicious rant against stars including Sir Paul McCartney and Coldplay.
MCGee, who discovered acts such as Oasis and Primal Scream, gave a furious interview last week (beg26Jan10) in which he urged the former Beatle to "retire" and labelled Coldplay "a dilution of a dilution of a dilution."
He also called for the U.K.'s prestigious Brit Awards to be scrapped and described many of the acts nominated at this year's ceremony as "an embarrassment."
MCGee also made unkind comments about Mika, insisting the high-pitched pop singer should have been "shot at birth."
And Mika has now launched his own tirade against the former Creation Records boss.
He says, "What does Alan MCGee know? Why would I deserve an opinion from someone like him? I am a target for certain types of people to criticise. They feel that it increases the attention and column inches they get. I'm not willing to take part in their little game or retaliate in any way except to say, 'I don't care.' Let him go off and club with every supermodel in London and rest on the cool laurels he laid for himself with prickly thorns. He can keep that life. I am happy with mine."
