He was one of pop’s greatest mysteries at one time, now he’s on the internet getting rimmed… *inserts sad face*” [Popjustice]

    now he’s on the internet getting rimmed

    A phrase I hoped to never encounter.

    Nowadays he looks like a cougar soccer mom who had a bit too much surgery. That said, I love him.

  3. Nunya B

    @NeverEnough: Clearly not as much as anyone willing to … well… you know.

  4. Chris Molanphy

    “[O]ne of pop’s greatest mysteries” — srsly? What part of “What I really need to do/Is find myself a brand-new lover” strikes one as “mysterious”? Boy George is the fuckin’ Sphinx by comparison.

    But Pete Burns has always been a bit of a buffoon. You want to talk about reality-show casualties, Flavor Flav wins that crown. He was the scariest PE member because, unlike Chuck or Griff, there was a certain malevolence and unpredictability to his schtick. That’s all gone now.

  6. NeverEnough

    @kisskisskiss: Yeah, my devotion stops at mouth-to-anal. I’m a prude like that.

  7. Empire

    @mike a: I always wonder how Flavor Flav and Chuck D can get up on that stage and do those songs they wrote about people like them before they became people like them.
