Who knew that Oasis' Liam Gallagher would be a Belieber! Turns out he is. The ornery former frontman for the '90s alt rock titans is infamously cranky, as is his brother Noel, with whom he battles rather publicly and often.

But he has a soft spot for The Biebs -- and not because he likes to sing 'Baby' while sudsing up in the shower or because he digs swooped bangs. He is actually impressed by the singer's recent rash of bad behavior!

"Anyone who goes on two hours late is f—ing right in my book, man,” Gallagher said. "All these so-called rock bands that sit backstage going, 'Hey, let’s wait 15 minutes!' F— that, wait two hours and 15 minutes!"

Well, that's really considerate of the fans who paid hard-earned money to see a concert and who have to work the next day, Liam!

Even so, he is seriously impressed by The Biebs and his tardiness. "He’s kicked the f—ing arse out of it — no one will beat that, ever," he added. "So get off his f—ing back, man. I am a Belieber."

Guess he doesn't care that school-aged Beliebers were looking back in anger since they had to leave the show early in order catch the last train home (so they weren't truant for school).

BTW, we'd like to mention that Axl Rose of Guns N' Roses routinely shows up and takes the stage two to three hours late. The Biebs isn't doing anything revolutionary by being late. It's just more amplified and ruder when he does it since his fans have curfews.
