Blur frontman Damon Albarn and Oasis’ Noel Gallagher literally kissed and made up at the BRIT Awards.
London’s Evening Standard reports that the pair met up at the BRIT Awards and very elaborately buried the hatchet.
Oasis and Blur were pitted against each other in the mid-‘90s by the UK media, often battling it out on the charts for Britpop supremacy.
Gallagher reportedly kissed Albarn’s hands, and then planted one on his lips, as professor Green and Colplay’s Chris Martin looked on, at the BRIT Awards.
Albarn later said, “It’s funny to think Blur were last here 17 years ago when we were big rivals. Isn’t it funny how we’ve both mellowed after all these years? We’ve buried the hatchet.”
Blur performed at the ceremony, with outlets reporting a 2700% per cent increase in album sales following the show.
