Where’s the Clip of Adam Ant’s Church Rant?

  • Troubled rocker Adam Ant swore, ranted, and stormed off stage at a church charity gig, offending many in the audience, according to reports. The Sun says that Adam sang “Sympathy for the Devil” and attempted “a duet with a four-year old boy” before organizers unplugged his amp. “When he was heckled by the crowd of 200 – which included young children – he snarled: “I’m a punk rocker. I don’t do Christian. You can f*** off to the church.”

    A few things: If Adam’s a “punk rocker” who “doesn’t do Christian,” what was he doing at a church? Second, when Adam told the crowd, “F*** off to church,” weren’t they already there? Thirdly, who invites Adam Ant to church in the first place? And lastly, where in the f***ing hell is the YouTube clip of this? Sounds amazing.

  • When “sexual terrorist” Russell Brand was at his randiest, he employed a crack “sex team” to procure him babes. “When I was at my most promiscuous, I was like a charging locomotive. My selection process was outsourced. I had a team of experts who took care of finding women for me. They had very specific instructions. It was as if I was talking to a wine steward – ‘I’m looking for something French, a bit fruity, smells of oak.’”(The Sun)
