Pharrell pushes fan

At a recent N.E.R.D. gig a fan was pushed off stage by Pharrell Williams. The guy now wants to sue Pharrell for this. What a load of nonsense. Don't crash the stage then mate. If you want to climb on then expect to dive off, be pulled off or get pushed off again. Simple as that. If you can't stand the heat, get out of the kitchen.

Anyway, this is nothing. Years ago I saw Courtney Love punch a fan in the face at a London gig. She had just done a stage dive and when she got back on stage she thought that her necklace was missing. She then picked someone from the audience who she decided was to blame, threw herself back off the stage again and walloped him one right on the cheek. Very unladylike and therefore very 'Courtney Love'. After security pulled her back on to the stage, she noticed that the necklace had simply slipped under her dress.

She giggled and said: 'Oops! Sorry I punched you in the face. I'm an a...hole!'

And that was that. No lawsuit. No hard feelings. Just two people playing their small part in rock history.
