80’s new wave singer [lastfm]Adam Ant[/lastfm] has been “sectioned” under the UK’s Mental Health Act, after a recent public performance wherein he told a crowd to “f–k off.” When you’re famous and you swear at a crowd, you’re given a comfy place to rest.  If you’re not famous and you swear at a crowd, well then, you probably just live on Venice Beach or something. 

The former [lastfm]Adam and the Ants[/lastfm] singer, who reportedly suffers from depression and bipolar disorder, is currently receiving treatment at  Chelsea and Westminster Hospital.

In a statement released by the singer, Ant requested postcards in lieu of physical visits:

Please don’t come down here as it may upset the staff who have been really pleasant.

Born, Stuart Goddard, the performer continued:

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.

Meanwhile, the cartoon character Atom Ant continues to be awesome:
