Pete Burns, lead singer of the 1980s British pop band Dead or Alive, has died of cardiac arrest. He was 57. Burns’ band scored a hit with “You Spin Me Round” in 1985. Two decades later he became known for an appearance on Celebrity Big Brother in the U.K. and for some extreme plastic surgery that greatly altered his appearance. Burns was unapologetic and said he used his music income to fund his transformation. “I can honestly say since 1976 I have lived solely off music and TV, and I’ve had a very nice life,” he said.
