Liam Gallagher Went On A Three Day Bender After Winning Godlike Genius Award
| Last updated
There's nothing more rock and roll than going on a huge bender after winning an award that celebrated your intellect and godlike-ness. To be fair, even to be nominated for an award that had godlike or genius in the title would be pretty bloody special.
But Liam Gallagher showed that despite being a 45-year-old father of four, he can still party hard.

He won NME's Godlike Genius Award at a glittering ceremony at the O2 in Brixton. Sporting his trademark parkas, a bearded Gallagher gracefully accepted the gong, which is a massive bronze middle finger.
The solo artist also showed that his rivalry with brother Noel is still alive and kicking. When asked who should have won the Villain of the Year Award, Liam replied: "Gotta be Noel. I'm being serious. You're laughing, but he's worse than Kim-Jun fucking Tung or whatever he's called.
"And he's worse than Donald Trump. He's the biggest liar and biggest faker in the business, so yeah, him. He's worse than Piers Morgan as well."
But people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.
Noel Gallagher received the Godlike Genius Award way back in 2012 and was nominated for this year's Best Festival Headliner, which went to Muse.
The former Oasis member has also been nominated for Best British Solo Artist in 2016, he was up for Hero of the Year twice, as well as Greatest Music Moment of the Year and other reputable awards like Best Track.
Sure, there's no denying Liam has won more awards that his brother, but he's also been up for Dickhead of the Year three times, the Worst Dressed of the Year three times and Villain of the Year the same year his sibling won the Godlike Genius gong.
Liam also said that talk of him and his brother putting their feud behind them was just that: talk.
The rock star told NME: "In my head [we called a truce]. Cos it's Christmas innit and me mam's always going, 'Look, calm down,' so I had a couple of drinks and thought, you know, I'll put it out there. But it's not happening, is it?"
American act Haim won Best International Band, Alt-J got Best British Band, Stefflon Don picked up the Best New Artist while Kasabian got the Best Live Artist.
It was no surprise Ariana Grande won the Hero of the Year for her work after the Manchester Bombings, the One Love Concert in Manchester won the Music Moment of the Year and Piers Morgan walked away with Villain of the Year.
