Johnny Rotten Takes a Ride With the LA Times

LA Times music editor Randall Roberts took a two-camera cruise with Sex Pistols frontman John Lydon, otherwise known as Johnny Rotten. Among other interesting tidbits from the ride, Lydon professes a love for Mexican Viagra, reveals he used to live in the “religious suburbs” of Pasadena, and takes credit for helping to bring about the modern day paparazzi, who he says “had a free hand with us” back when the Pistols were still big news. Lydon has lived just off the beach in Venice for the past 20 years.

Lydon is also profiled by Roberts in the paper, where talks about “Mr. Rotten’s Scrapbook,” a $750 collection he’s put together of “drawings, paintings, photos, poems, scribbles and reminiscences.”

NBC plans to pull those Law & Order episodes with Fred Thompson, as he comes close to announcing his bid for the Republican presidential nomination To avoid running afoul of the government’s equal time provisions for candidates, the network won’t schedule a L&O repeat with Thompson after Sept. 1 if he’s officially a candidate by that time. Cable doesn’t have to play by the same rules, which is lucky, as he’s in 115 episodes.

And Maya Rudolph out at SNL?
