Mark Owen Slammed Over Sick Joke

TAKE THAT singer MARK OWEN has been branded "sick" after pretending to hang himself after covering a JOY DIVISION song.

The 33-year-old, who is preparing to tour the UK next year (06) with the recently reunited boyband, appalled fans in Manchester on Tuesday (13DEC05) when he poked fun at singer IAN CURTIS' 1980 suicide.

After performing classic track LOVE WILL TEAR US APART, Owen held his tie above his head, closed his eyes and let his tongue hang out so as to appear to have hanged himself.

A fan says, "It seemed sick. It was heinous. He was even dressed like Ian Curtis with his tight shirt."

This story is bollocks. The Sun made it up to go with the picture. I've seen Mark many times live and he does that gesture in a line from his own song Believe In The Boogie - the line "life can weigh a ton". Nothing to do with Ian Curtis. A nice guy like Mark would never disrespect another human being never mind another musician. Stop reading the rubbishy tabloids! Call themselves journalists..I think not.
