Matt Sebastian of the Daily Camera caught up with Sex Pistols frontman Johnny Rotten, who was again fuming over Avril Lavigne, especially her comments proclaiming herself “punk,” going so far as to tell Seventeen magazine that “I’m like a Sid Vicious for a new generation.” Rotten said of the Canadian pop-punk act: “I don’t give a damn. I wish she was (Vicious). Then she’d be dead, and that’s putting it mildly … What do people think heroin is? A joyous romp in the park? It’s self destruction, and I’m sorry, but no self-respecting punk would be out to destroy himself. ‘Oh, he’s the dead one, you know.’ What a bizarre attitude that it’s the dead one who’s the good one. Look, these self-professed punks are fake. She’s about as much punk as Kelly Osbourne.”
