Punk svengali Malcolm McLaren has blasted his former band the Sex Pistols for acting like "girls" after they snubbed his plan to burn waxworks of THE Beatles.

Outrageous McLaren, who managed the Sex Pistols in the 1970s, concocted a plan to break into London museum Madame Tussauds and burn effigies of John Lennon, Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Star and George Harrison.

He says, "We were following through on a lot of the principles laid down by 1968. The Sex Pistols would say, 'What is a song, Malcolm?' I would say, 'A f**king song is breaking into Madame Tussauds and burning down The Beatles, that's a song!' You can get a song like that, you're happening.

"But the girls weren't into it."
