It’s been a lifelong struggle with manic depression for Adam Ant, and, sadly, the 80’s pop icon seems to have lost the latest round. After a series of increasingly erratic public appearances, Ant, nee Stuart Goddard, showed up at a charity event to raise money for starving children in the Phillipines.
While performing a cover of Sympathy For The Devil, Ant asked if there were any “Christians in the room” before telling them to “fuck off.” According to The Daily Mail, he was then “sectioned under the mental health act,” and is now in recovery.
You can see footage of the charity event here. But speaking, I think, for many of us here at Dangerous Minds, it might be best to simply wish Ant the best of luck and watch him in a more bouyant mood in the video below:
