Stand - and deliver this man to the nearest mental hospital

80's idol Adam Ant - a hero and inspiration to many people whose idea of style is to emulate a pirate - has been sectioned under the Mental Health Act. AA has long battled depression, and has admitted himself to hospital in the past - though this time he didn't have a choice, as his actions have apparently become increasingly bizarre. Matters came to a head during a gig in Portsmouth when AA dragged some bewildered children on stage, attempted to teach them the words to 'My Generation', then screamed 'f**k off' at the crowd when they had the temerity to leave.

Adam updated his fans via his website,'Ant fans - please send me postcards at the Chelsea & Westminster Hospital, Fulham Road. Please don't come down here as it may upset the staff who have been really pleasant. I am having a well earned rest at Her Majesty's Pleasure and am painting and continuing being an art student. I have a great view and am considering gigs later in the year.'

We're adamant that you'll return to form soon, AA...
