Palmer: I faked my top video.

Byline: MIKE HAMILTON

ROCK star Robert Palmer revealed he did not star in his famous Addicted to Love video in the last interview before his death.

The singer, who is to be buried at his Swiss home, told the Sunday Mirror's M Celebs magazine that he was superimposed on to the set of the classic 80s video, which starred a string of beautiful girls.

The 54-year-old, who died at a Paris hotel on Friday after suffering a suspected heart attack, revealed: "I was in a studio on my own singing against a blue backdrop.

"I was never in the same room as those girls, more's the pity. It was just me, a camera and a blue screen."

Tributes to Palmer continued to pour in from the music world yesterday.

Duran Duran guitarist Andy Taylor, who starred with Palmer in The Power Station band, said: "He was one of the greatest British acts and a friend."
