LYDON slams everyone.
John Lydon aka Johnny Rotten announced an event at Blackwell's book shop in Oxford last week and it was during this event speaking at Oxford University's Sheldonian Theatre about his life and new autobiography, Anger Is An Energy, when he took aim at the reality 'music' show.
NME reports that Lydon said to the audience:"Simon Cowell, that's our worst enemy, I don't think [the contestants] on the show are that awful, it becomes awful when they become trained into that cruise ship show band mentality, and that's the poison of it...” he began. "[Simon Cowell] has got us all on his big cruise ship lollipop, and I ain't licking his lollipop."
He also criticised Bob Geldof's Band Aid 30 efforts, describing the initiative as "full of corruption".
"I never found Band Aids work, they think they're waterproof, get full of water and then fall off – and it's the same with Geldof's lot," he said. "I don't like them because they're open to corruption. There's this thing called administration and that's where all the money is eaten up." adding: "Do you remember the one with Phil Collins and they were jetting around, doing New York, London? How much fucking money? How many cans of Campbell's do you think that one cost? And who really needs Phil Collins in two continents in two hours? Even his missus would have a no on that."
