Acclaimed rocker Paul Weller was so annoyed by fans' requests at a competition winners' gig for British radio station Virgin yesterday (13FEB06), he snapped and swore at them.

The WILDWOOD hitmaker, who will receive the Brit Award for Lifetime Achievement tomorrow night (15FEB06), insisted his audience should stop being so demanding because they hadn't even paid to be there.

He raged, "We don't know what we're playing yet, it's not a f**king request show.

"Don't know what you're talking about anyway, you guys didn't pay for these f**kin' tickets in the first place.

"Enough of the f**kin' 'waheys' guys. I'm about to play a f**kin' mellow song. You're putting me off."
