Liam: taking holidays at lake Como is beautiful, the food's the bollocks

NEW YORK CITY - Photo at the Black Cat restaurant in Cernobbio, Como lake near Milan.
Again, as if he was reading what I was writing the other day, 'cause he knows oasisblues.
A black cat in Italy doesn't bring luck, it's the contrary. But if there are English people, it does :).
It comes as no surprise that the notoriously cantankerous former Oasis frontman has opinions. Here are some of his favorite—and least favorite—things in life.
You've heard a lot from Liam Gallagher over the past couple decades. He has a thing for words. Choice ones. Specifically about things he doesn't care for. So, since he has more going on now than since the days of Wonderwall (his new Noel-less band Beady Eye; a new single and video, "Roller"; and his own clothing line, Pretty Green, which is now available in the U.S.) we were curious what he actually likes. We asked him and got 10 things. Plus, three things he loathes. And, for good measure, 14 instances of the word "fuck." So proceed with caution, ye of Puritan minds.

1. My Favorite TV Shows

"I love 'Judge Judy.' And, fucking, who's the black guy with the bald head? Montel. My wife and I love that shit. Also, I like that 'Celebrity Rehab' you have in America, too. I was watching it on TV and then I went out the night after to this Marilyn Manson gig, and that guy from Grease with the walking stick—what's his fucking name? He died a couple weeks ago? [Jeff Conaway.] He was there and asked me if I wanted a line. I'm like 'What the fuck? You're meant to be in fucking rehab.'"

2. Central Park

"New York is my favorite city in the world. I don't make it downtown much but I love Central Park. I've got to be by trees, otherwise I get claustrophobic. The people there—they don't take no crap either. Reminds myself a bit of me, so I like it."

3. Ginger Ale

"These days, I'm sticking to ginger ale. I'm having a bit of a time off from drinking. I haven't had anything since New Year's Eve. I'm just having a breather. I've been drinking for 25 years, man. When I do go out though, I drink absolutely fucking everything."

4. Quadrophenia

"I'm fucking obsessed with Quadrophenia. It gets me right off. I love that ballroom scene where he jumps off the balcony."

5. Levi's 504s

"I don't like jeans with holes in 'em. I like 'em faded. Levi's 504s never let me down. I like that they're a little tight in the butt, too."

6. The Beatles

"My favorite album would have to be something from The Beatles. Fucking Abbey Road? A Hard Day's Night! John Lennon's Imagine. I like everything they've done."

7. The Black Cat at Lake Como near Milano

"I take holiday at Lake Como a lot. Pretty expensive, but beautiful. If you go up there in the mountains there's a restaurant called The Black Cat (Gatto Nero). It's outside, on a cliff, and you look over the fucking lake. The food's the bollocks. It's amazing." [he's mad for Gorgonzola cheese, it stinks but very good]

8. Garrett Leight sunglasses

"I like Lennon-style sunglasses. I got these in Barneys the other day. I need some proper lenses in these motherfuckers though. I've lived without them for so long though, so, actually, fuck it."

9. Style Hero: Paul Weller

"There's no one I want to be, but Paul Weller of The Jam has always looked so cool. My label, Pretty Green, is a reference to one of his songs. He did a Paul Weller for Pretty Green collection for Summer 2011, too."

10. Gibson Guitars

I don't like posh guitars. I don't like them Martins even. They're a bit too smooth and polite for me. I like guitars that are fucking loud. I've got a Gibson 1962 Hummingbird, which is a bit beat up. It's probably my favorite.

And now we bring you three entirely unessential things...

1. Muse

"Muse fucking scares me. They're like fucking creepy shit. But people like 'em. They at least play guitars, but when I hear his voice I'm like, 'Ah, fuck him.'"

2. Technology

"I don't use gadgets. Like, people do all this shit on their phones. I just use it to ring my Mrs. and mates. Never sent an e-mail in me life. I've got no apps. I don't even know how to download music."

3. Umbrellas

[After being asked by a doorman if he would like an umbrella in the rain during the interview:] "An umbrella? I only use those to stick up people's asses."
