Debbie Harry revealed the phone-hacking saga was looming over her as she sang Blondie hit Hanging On The Telephone at a London gig.
Blondie performed to a sold out crowd on Wednesday night as part of the Summer Series at Somerset House and couldn't help mentioning the ongoing scandal.
As the crowd cheered the song, Debbie said: "With all this phone hacking we weren't sure... Why's everyone so obsessed with phones?"
Later as the audience sang along to classic One Way Or Another Debbie referenced the phone-hacking scandal again, changing the words from "I'm gonna getcha" to "I'm gonna hack ya" and telling the crowd: "I'm going to get your Facebook password".
Style icon Debbie looked chic as ever in a black dress with a cinched in waist and pencil skirt and her signature dark glasses. The 66-year-old singer showed plenty of energy as she danced around the stage, encouraging the audience to join in and sing along.
Blondie kept the crowd happy with a string of hits including Atomic, Call Me, Sunday Girl, Maria and finishing with Heart of Glass.
