Ronson slams Noel

Mark Ronson has responded to snide remarks that Noel Gallagher made about him in recent Radio 1 interview.

As well as criticising Kaiser Chiefs, Scouting For Girls and Amy Winehouse on Chris Moyles' breakfast show, Gallagher said Ronson "needs to learn three chords on the guitar and write a tune, instead of ruining everyone else's".

However, Ronson – who has produced both Winehouse and the Kaiser Chiefs – had a few words to say on the subject on his MySpace blog.

"Noel Gallagher said I should 'learn three chords on the guitar and go write a tune'," he wrote.

"So I just wanted him to know that I'm actually taking guitar lessons from Jay-Z right now and he's already taught me both chords to Wonderwall."

He added that he also wrote a song called Back To Black, which "has seven chords in it."

Gallagher caused controversy earlier this year when he said that Jay-Z and hip hop had no rightful place at the Glastonbury Festival.

Dannii planning to welcome Cheryl

Dannii Minogue has said she intends to make new X-Factor judge Cheryl Cole feel welcome on the show, despite rumours of a feud between the two.

The Girls Aloud singer has made disparaging remarks about Dannii's cosmetic surgery in the past, suggesting the Aussie star may have gone over the top with her ops.

"I think she should get all her plastic surgery reduced. She doesn’t look natural," she said.

"I don’t think men find her attractive."

However, Dannii says she is not going to make an issue of any such comments, noting that Cheryl is still upset over the revelations of husband Ashley's cheating.

"Cheryl's been through a very tough time, so I went to her dressing room on the first day of filming to introduce myself and wish her luck.

"She was so nervous - her hands were shaking."

Cole was brought in to replace Sharon Osbourne, who quit the show recently in a row over pay.
