London: Former Oasis star Noel Gallagher has slammed Lady Gaga for making 'Madonna-lite' music and says her career is based on publicity rather than great songs.

The 44-year-old singer thinks the 'Judas' hitmaker is good at getting attention, but he says her music will not stand the test of time, reported Q magazine.

"Lady Gaga is all about the meat suit and the controversy. Is it about music? Really? She's got the publicity side sorted, but where's the music.

"Her album gets played a lot around my house by my daughter and it's Madonna-lite. Madonna was hardcore. She took it to the edge musically as well as everything else," said the 'AKA. What A Life' hitmaker.

"Twenty years from now, will we listen to Lady Gaga? No. She might think she is making a stand for the freaks and the weirdos. But they're not going to have any decent music to play are they?" he said.

The English musician who has an 11-year-old daughter Anais with his ex-wife Meg Matthews and two sons, three-year-old Donovan and 10-month-old Sonny, with his current spouse Sara MacDonald, is disappointed that most current rock bands have nothing interesting to say and laments the lack of a focal point for rock 'n' roll.

"Who will retell the rock 'n' roll story for a new generation? The problem with bands these days is half of them get the music right but you read an interview and think, 'I can't buy into them as people.'

"It's become this prevailing thing where, 'It's all about the music.' It's not. It's more than that. The way you look or what you say or what you stand for is crucial. People are so wary of being the spokesman for a generation. I wish someone would provide a focal point," he said.
