Pete Doherty: Nothin’ But a Crack Ho?

During an interview with Vogue Hommes International, Pete Doherty pulled out a crack pipe. Yeah, been there, done that. The interview's real revelation is that Doherty had sex with old men for drug money, reports the New York Daily News (2nd item). "There was no shame, because I kind of knew they were just lonely pissed-up old queens. And 20 quid was a lot of money!" Doherty does not detail the sex acts he engaged in with these men, and frankly, we don't want to know. I think, if there was a choice between a painful detox and Bruce Vilanch's wang, we'd gladly suffer through the itchy blood, night sweats, and diarrhea, thanks.

Meanwhile, Pete Doherty plays Daddy with Kate Moss' daughter, Lila Grace.

While not British himself - he was born and raised in St. Louis, Missouri - he once received inordinate hospitality in London for sharing the name of a dead but beloved EastEnders character. His Anglophilia stems from a high school love of Morrissey, whom he calls his "gateway drug" into British culture.
