Normally, we associate Noel Gallagher with the band Oasis, and his neverending tumultuous relationship/feud with brother Liam. But it seems that Noel’s also been busy raising a family. His daughter Anais — with ex-wife Meg Matthews — is now 11, has signed up with Select Model Management and had her first shoot with photographer Mario Testino. That’s a little bit fancier than your average family photo.

Some things really get my goat when it comes to kids, like little girls wearing heavy makeup. (Cough, cough.) But pot leaf-shaped candy? Meh.
Parents around the country are reportedly upset with “pothead” lollipops and ring-pops, which are sour apple-flavored suckers in the shape of marijuana leaves. According to the Washington Post, the lollipops sell for about a dollar and the ringpops sell for about three for $1.50.
