The Cure frontman Robert Smith is promising fans he'll stop wearing make-up when the group releases its 14th album in 2011.

The LOVECATS singer, who has just released his 13th album, THE CURE, insists there will be no new material for seven years - and he'll be too old to wear his famous lipstick then.

He says, "It would be painful and insincere to keep banging out records. So the next one's gonna happen in, like, 2011 - and I will most certainly not be wearing black and lipstick in 2011. That's a guarantee."
