A ROTTEN BLESSING FOR ROYAL COUPLE

John Lydon might have sung, "God save the Queen/she ain't no human bein'," with The Sex Pistols all those years ago, but according to an interview in The Sun, the Rotten one has nothing but nice things to say about Prince William and his bride-to-be.

"People think I hate the Royal Family, but that's not true. My animosity is towards the institution, not the people themselves. ... They really appear to have stars in their eyes. I can see it, and that is a lovely thing. So much more important than diamonds and tiaras. I can't stand it when people have a jealous reaction to this - saying she is a gold-digger and he is marrying beneath him. ... They'd probably be happy with a small wedding. But in their situation the State requires a load of pomp and ceremony. And why not? I love a bit of flag-waving."

Here's the Johnny Rotten I remember:
