“One minute I'm waiting for Kate to arrive to join me in the Jacuzzi for a romantic evening. The next thing I can remember is doing cold turkey in a vomit-filled cell.”
When it comes to innovations in the art of killin’ it, the music world is a formidable incubator. However, one strong contemporary stand out is the former Babyshambles and Libertines front man, Pete Doherty. Doherty is without question a man who can put a big check next to all of the following; sex, drugs, and rock ‘n roll.
He also sports a rap sheet that would make any American hip hop artist cut his dick off in shame: Making his cats smoke crack, grand theft auto, breaking and entering - and, in a killin' it innovation that would make 1983 Rick James weep with pride, was arrested during a drunk driving trial - for bringing drugs to court.
Additionally, he also dated Kate Moss, which is pretty impressive when you consider the fact he spends most of his time looking like an aborted fetus strung out on meth. And despite all that, Doherty routinely treated Moss with a healthy dose of disinterest and a strong dedication to killin’ it – not to their relationship. Just ask him why he dated her; “I'm 300 grand in debt. Why do you think I'm going out with Kate Moss?”
Doherty really sums it up best; “A lot of people basically are obsessed with the missus and I don't know really ... she's just a bird from South London.”
