Apparently there's a point where selling out goes too far

John Lydon won't do adverts for clothes shops. It's a matter of integrity, you see:

"There's a thin line between self-parody and ridicule."

Apparently, advertising clothes is ridicule, which is wrong, whereas pocketing the money from Schiltz for those beer ads was self-parody, which is fine. We imagine the fine detail of where that line lays is down to how large the cheques are.

Someone remind Lydon that he actively promoted a line of clothing a couple of Sex Pistols tours back...
