Dexys Midnight Runners star Kevin Rowland is adamant he has no regrets about his decision to pose in stockings and women's underwear for a much-derided photoshoot.
The singer was snapped wearing the odd ensemble for the cover of his 1999 solo album My Beauty, attracting mocking comments from critics, but he insists he's still happy with the image.
He tells Q magazine, "Well, I don't regret that for a moment. I was completely sound of mind. I don't see that as anything negative or anything to do with a fragile emotional state, as has been stated... I liked it."
