"Those guys are legends," Mensa said of the Oasis brothers Liam and Noel, "but also dickheads. Ultimate dickheads. 

"I saw they were mad Kanye played Glastonbury," he continued, alluding to the pair's criticism of West after his Glastonbury headlining slot was announced. "They were mad when Jay Z played too. Feels very racist to me. They’re gonna say: ‘No it’s not about race, it’s about guitar music, it’s about rock n’ roll’, but I mean like, how many people do you feel are carrying the spirit of rock n’ roll in 2015?"

Mensa added, "Would you not say that Yeezus, and a song like 'Black Skinhead' is carrying the spirit of rock n’ roll? I can’t understand how that’s not fucking rock n’ roll.”
