Pete Burns

Oh.My.God. He hates himself doesn't he?

he wasn' that bad looking back when he had hit records, kind of like a punk natalie schaffer. Someone with this much body dysmorphia should be institutionalized, not indulged.

It's bad, y'all. Who would even consent to perform procedures on someone to make him look like that? It's unthinkable and unethical.

Why is his head/face so big? I don't mean his cheek implants, etc but the actual dimensions of his face.

She/he/it looks like a puffy/cartoony version of Monica Bellucci on crack sideways! Worse yet she makes Jocelyn Ctawoman Wildenstein look hot....

I really don't understand why physicians who perform surgeries like this are permitted to retain their licenses. This is so clearly unethical.

Bisexual, yes? He was married to a woman for years and doesn't seem the type to be closeted.

Well, at least that bloated, pin cushion face distracts the eye from that fake ass wig s/he's got on.

I saw him last year on the sidewalk outside a pub in East London. His skin looks almost grey in real life and he walks like a frail old woman.

My friend walked over to the Tesco to get us some cans as the pub had a massive line, and he spotted Pete in there stealing jars of baby food. About 20 minutes later, the cops pulled up outside the pub and arrested her.

LOL--"Octomom" popped into my head as well. Re: bisexuality--he was married to a woman for 20 years but he wrote in his autobiography that they stopped having sex after the first year. I think she was just his fag hag, really.

One of the funniest threads EVER in datalounge history was entitled "Pete Burns' low hangers" from a couple of years ago, and it featured the photo at link. N S F W. Much dialogue ensued about just how low Pete's low hangers really were, about what the hell was wrong with Pete, and about why he appeared to be performing to a crowd of bored-looking middle-class fraus and he-fraus. Then.... some astute poster noted that there appeared to be some sort of ... item on the catwalk below Pete. Some sort of very very very disturbing item. Arguments arose as to what the item might be. I leave it to the viewer. AGAIN: N S F W.

Yeah, is his book worth reading?

by Anonymousreply 3909/23/2010

I might be getting my facts mixed a little so bear with me. Apparently the people who write the Popbitch newsletter wrote some stuff about Pete's mental state he didn't like. Pete responded by posting their private cell numbers on his own website. He was also caught super-gluing stilettos to the hoods of his neighbors' cars. He also insulted David Bowie, who dared to tell Pete that he would appreciate it if he didn't do a cover version of "Rebel Rebel"--Pete said that just because Bowie was now in his 90s didn't mean he had to bow down and kiss his ass. (Pete's cover version far outstrips Bowie's version, in my opinion.) Pete was a scream when he was on Celebrity Big Brother. Here's a classic clip:

Is he a singer? What is he?

by Anonymousreply 4109/23/2010

I read that he had a bad reaction to some surgery and was in a really bad shape. Pete said in some interview just a little time ago that the doctors even thought about removing his jaw completely because of the infection, but in the end they got the thing cured.

I also find fascinating this whole changing-identity -thing that was going on in the 80's and still seems to be going on in the UK with dudes like Pete, Marilyn and Boy George.

Thanks for the reminder, R47--I've always preferred "Brand New Lover" to "You Spin Me Round" as a DOA classic. Though the shot at 1:10 with Pete firing a shotgun is a bit terrifying.

Pete Burns is damaged beyond repair, absolutely. But he's brilliant and funny and evil. He's got more balls and courage and creativity in his hair extensions than most you dull-witted no-hopers do combined.

Nothing says "I love my audience" like taking a shit onstage in front of them.

This guy needs therapy, not more plastic surgery. I question the professionalism of a plastic surgeon who agreed to do this to a human being.

For another gender bending plastic surgery addict, Google another British eccentric, Genesis P Orridge. He's still getting surgery to resemble his late wife! I think he still has his penis, but has breast implants for a while. He was the main performer in the band Throbbing Gristle.

Genesis now lives in Bushwick Brooklyn, a real hotbed of alternative lifestyles! I have to wonder what the locals think as he walks down the street.

It's a shame how plastic surgery addicts don't know when to stop.

There was a precise moment in 1990 when Burns looked his best as a surgical creation - he'd had a lot of work done on his face by then, but he was not yet a monster. He looked more like an intense, hermaphroditic version of Sonia Braga from Kiss of the Spider Woman.

But alas.. he kept going.

See 1990 clip -

Actually, he looks much worse now than in R74's picture. He's put on quite a bit of weight, his cheeks look like he's storing live chipmunks in them and are asymmetric in size, and the less said about that giant hemorrhoid which is now where his lips used to be the better.
