London: Singer Liam Gallagher is a big fan of teen sensation Justin Bieber and has warned people to stop criticising him.

The Beady Eye frontman says he is big fan of 19-year-old popstar, whose supporters are known as Beliebers, reported Contactmusic.

Defending the singer after he went on stage two hours late at London`s The O2 last month, Gallagher said, "Anyone who goes on two hours late is right in my book, man. All these so-called rock bands that sit backstage going, `Hey, let`s wait 15 minutes`. Wait two hours and 15 minutes! No one will beat that, ever. So get off his back, I am a Belieber."

Gallagher has vowed to defend Bieber in the future and joked he is going to put the `Believe` hitmaker`s moniker on the cover of Beady Eye`s forthcoming new album, `BE`.

"My theory is that it`s gonna have BE on the cover, and then on the back IEBER. Bieber! I`ve got his back," he added.
