A former front man of INXS has laid into the reality TV show Rockstar: INXS saying that the programmes choice will be ripped off.
Jon Stevens, who fronted the band for three years after Michael Hutchenceâ€™s suicide in 1997, advised winner JD Fortune: "Make sure you've got a great lawyer. But they'll (the winner) get raped and pillaged anyway" reports www.stuff.co.nz.
Calling the show â€˜Mock Starâ€™ Stevens added that the main objective of the show was â€œmoney, money and greedâ€ and that the show could only create great television and not good music.
Which is a bit hypocritical as he was sitting on the judgeâ€™s panel of New Zealandâ€™s Pop Idol at the time of the comments.
