AzisA recently-discovered asteroid in the Taurus constellation is to be named after a Bulgarian transvestite folk singer, Ananova reports. The reason? Well, it was a Bulgarian team which spotted the body and, as a spokesperson explained: "We want to name the asteroid after the folk singer Azis, who is quite famous here."

Fair enough. Apparently, Azis has caused a bit of a kerfuffle in Bulgaria, what with his openly-homosexual ways and his campaigning for the somewhat downtrodden Roma gypsy minority.

We can only hope that the honour does not attract the attention of a VXer similar to that which attempted to wipe Romanian manele gypsy music off the face of the internet, as we previously reported. ®
