Iggy Pop has defended himself amidst allegations that he is obsessed with his manhood.

The 60-year-old punk veteran churned out a series of explicit lyrics on his latest album ‘The Weirdness’, leading the moral brigade to point the finger at him.

But Pop firmly believes that there is nothing wrong about talking about his penis, telling Rolling Stone: “You write about things of importance to you. And it’s gotta be for real. Do I think about my dick? All the time. I gotta a right to sing about it.”

“If I thought ‘It’s time to write a rock song, I’d better mention my dick,’ then I wouldn’t be able to say dick right. But it’s nature orientated.”

For some explicit lyrics and bare-chested antics guaranteed, check out Iggy & The Stooges at All Tomorrow’s Parties or Glastonbury.
