Is there anything more punk rock than racking up loads of money on in-app purchases for iPad games? If your answer is a resounding “yes, of course there is” then prepare to argue with former Sex Pistols John “Johnny Rotten” Lydon. Speaking with the UK’s Telegraph newspaper, Lydon claims he spent “10,000 f*cking pounds” (around $15,600) during a two year app-buying bender on his iPad.

Hot news from the celebrity world: former Sex Pistols singer, current PiL frontman, and esteemed butter salesman John “Johnny Rotten” Lydon has revealed his battle with a crippling iPad app addiction. As he tells The Telegraph: “I wasted — you’re the first to know this — 10,000 fucking pounds [about $15,600] in the last two years on apps on my iPad. I got into Game of Thrones, Game of War, Real Racing, and I just wanted to up the ante. And like an idiot I didn’t check myself. I’ve been checked now. But there’s a kid in me, see? A bit of my childhood was taken from me and I’m determined to bring it back.” Other revelations from the curiously personal finance-focused interview include that Lydon considers Bowers & Wilkins speakers his best-ever purchase, and that he’s “not a bloke who wants a Ferrari in the garage. If I want to drive a Ferrari I’ve got PlayStation.”
