NME reports that Muse have responded to Noel Gallagher's knock on the fact that Dom Howard was smoking electronic cigarettes at the Brit Awards.
Matt Bellamy wrote on Twitter: "Dom took Noel's lyrics 'I want to live I don't want to die', 'maybe I just want to breath' and 'you and I are gonna live forever' literally. He's switching to real cigarettes based on Noel's apparent U-turn."
Gallagher said in an interview that the drummer was part of the "instantly forgettable" Brit Awards last month. He said: "There are no characters left in the music business. When we first started going there was a healthy percentage of people, and we were all dirt-kickers from council estates, and we all couldn't believe our luck that we were at the Brits. You go in now and everybody is a careerist. It's very corporate, and you know what I've actually seen people doing at the Brits? Eating. I saw the drummer from Muse smoking an electronic cigarette. A cigarette with a battery in. I had to say to him: ‘Really? Really? Is that where you are at? Do me a favour, mate, either have a proper one outside, or don't have one.' It lit up green when he had a drag of it. Nonsense. He said that immortal line – ‘Oh you know how it is, mate'. And I said ‘I'm sorry, mate, I actually don't.'"
