Prodigy star Keith Flint will never star on a reality TV show even if he is poor
Prodigy star Keith Flint will never star on a reality TV show.
The musician - famed for his facial piercings and wild behavior - has been approached by the makers of "absolutely all" of the major reality series, but insists he has too much self-respect to accept their offers.
He said: "Even if The Prodigy didn't exist anymore, I would rather die poor than do that."
Flint's hatred for reality TV was cemented when he saw Sex Pistols singer Johnny Rotten - real name John Lydon - embarrass himself on 'I'm A Celebrity… Get Me Out Of Here!'.
He added: "I wasn't a massive Pistols fan, but I know a lot of people who are. They're middle-aged now but they still have that punk spirit, they can't let go of that way of thinking. When I saw Lydon doing that, I just thought, 'F***ing hell, you've let all these people down. He doesn't mean f**k all to me, he's a joke, but I was angry for his fans."
The Prodigy release their long-awaited new album, 'Invaders Must Die', is released later this month.
