Lydon Explains Duffy Scuffle

Punk rocker JOHN LYDON has defended himself after lashing out at Welsh singer DUFFY at a 2008 awards ceremony, insisting he reacted violently after she "leapt" on him.
The Mercy hitmaker was collecting a trophy for Song of the Year at London's MOJO Awards two years ago (08) when the Sex Pistols frontman - also known as Johnny Rotten - pinned her against a wall.
She later said, "He'd been heckling me when I went to pick up an award, shouting 'Duffo', 'Up the Duffy', things like that - nice!
"When I picked up the award, I had to walk past him so I went to say hi and suddenly he had me pinned against the wall. I just went white and had to get away."
But Lydon insists the scuffle was a result of Duffy jumping on him.
He tells Britain's The Sun, "She leapt on my back. I'm not a maypole for her to go swinging off. Until you know who is doing that you are in a compromising position. If you want to say hello to me, then stand in front of me and say hello."

I do not believe a single word of Lydon's story! Duffy is awesome, as well as classy. In my opinion, even if she would've jumped on his back, as he said, her only mistake would've been not bopping him in the head with her award! He has single handedly proven his nasty character. Lydon seems to be a "hater", as he always creates controversy with those who are more successful than he is. Perhaps his underlying intent is to draw attention to himself. Apparently, "There's no such thing as bad press", has not worked for him. He should just give it up! AND...I LOVE YOU DUFFY!
