Knifed Up Rocker Compares Plastic Surgery To Redecorating His House “Changing My Face Is Like Buying A New Sofa”
We showed you Pete Burns after his most recent surgery a couple weeks ago, but apparently the British rock star has no intention of staying away from the knife.
Talking to this week’s Reveal magazine, he confessed: ‘My most recent overhaul was about a month ago. I had a minor facelift and my eyes slanted.
‘I also have regular peels and Botox. I’t something I’ll always do. People redecorate their homes every few years and I see this as no different. Changing my face is like buying a new sofa.’
Come again??? GTFOH with that bullshat! If you buy a new sofa and that isht doesn’t match your drapes you can send it back to the store — if you buy a new nose and it doesn’t match your face, guess what? YOU ARE F*CKED!
You’d think this dude would’ve learned his lesson since he won £450,000 in damages last year from a cosmetic surgeon Dr Maurizio Viel, who the singer claims left him ‘suicidal’ after his lip implant operations went wrong.
The Liverpudlian said he had his first surgery – a nose job – in the 1980s after the money started rolling in from hits like You Spin Me Round with his band Dead Or Alive.
But he said even that went wrong and his nose was so crooked he could no longer wear sunglasses.
However, he said it didn’t put him off and he went on to have an implant in his top lip, then filler injections.
But in 2004 an infection set in, which saw his lips swell to 18 inches.
The star – who appeared on Celebrity Big Brother in 2006 – continues: ‘My doctor punctured it and the yellow dishcarge that came out filled two mugs. I was put on antibiotics but my whole face began to swell.
‘I was housebound for nine months and couldn’t move my head – discharge would pour out.’
He finally found a corrective surgeon who said he could help.
Pete continued: ‘One told told me that my lips were so bad they would need amputating. It was terrifying.’
Thanks for that disgusting description of pus filled lips. SMH.
Apparently when surgery isn’t an available option, he’ll settle for deforming himself in other ways:
In September at London Fashion Week, Pete also debuted myriad facial piercings along his eyebrows, forehead and cheekbones.
However, he’s now removed most of them.
He explained: ‘I had piercings all over my face, which did look dreadful, but I got them done while waiting for my hisband Michael to get a tattoo. I was bored.’
Somebody get this dude a hobby. STAT!
It sounds like he’s ready to spend all his settlement money on more surgery. Despite his repeated unsavory experiences Burn says he’ll continue to go under the knife and insists:
‘I don’t feel like I’m addicted to surgery.
‘I could leave it alone for long periods of time if I wanted…I’ll wait another couple of years before my next overhaul…my face might fall off!’
