Sex Pistol refuses to tone down language

By
Sex Pistol John Lydon has refused to tone down his language on the punk band's forthcoming reunion tour.

Lydon's bassist Glen Matlock has reportedly requested that he cuts back on the swearing during their performance because his young son will be in the crowd.

However, the I'm A Celebrity... contestant says he has no intention of altering the rockers' lyrical content.

The singer told Spin: "He's been saying that all this swearing should stop. I understand he's a father and doesn't want his son to have to hear foul language.

"I wrote in 'Bodies', ' F*** this and f*** that / F*** it all, and f*** the f****** brat', and I don't think there's a clearer song about the pain of abortion.

"The juxtaposition of all those different psychic things in your head and all the confusion, the anger, the frustration, you have to capture in those words."
