DURAN DURAN star Simon Le Bon lost all respect for his idols Madonna and Britney Spears after they shared a lesbian kiss at 2003's MTV MUSIC VIDEO AWARDS.

The 1980s star was disgusted by the pop beauties' shock embrace, because he's convinced it was a shameless publicity stunt to increase their fortunes.

He complains, "It worried me when Britney snogged Madonna. It looked a bit fake. It screamed 'We're in this for the money.'"
