Pete Doherty. His pasty, pudgy face is never out of the British tabloids these days, but has there ever been a musician LESS famous for their music? And let's face it, it's not just the tabloids that don't care about the actual musical output of Doherty et al - all ANYONE talks about is one thing - Pete Doherty is addicted to heroin.
Does anyone know any of the other members of Babyshambles? Of course they don't. Could half of the people reading this review name me 2 Babyshambles songs? Of course they couldn't - because their weak, patchy material can't compete with the juggernaut of exposure Doherty gets, and his massive, swollen ego and pathetic sense of self-worth and self-pity wouldn't have it any other way.
So, Pete's a junkie then. It's what MADE the band he was in earlier (The Libertines) famous (again, not the music, that was just as bad as Babyshambles.. well, maybe a little better), as a million fools took Pete to their hearts, calling him "troubled" and "in need of counciling".
LISTEN, idiots - he's a feeble minded, worthless JUNKIE. Don't you think he knew what heroin was when he took it? Of course he did. No-one put a gun to his head, he knew the risks, he knew what he was doing - and now he just can't hack it. Simple as that. And we're supposed to feel sorry for him? We're supposed to support him? I don't think so. If Pete Doherty wasn't famous, you would cross the street to avoid him, you would look at him, wasted, and tut, thinking "scum". But no, because he's got some money, because he's in the NME every week - he's a genius, a poet, the saviour of British music. What utter rubbish.
I really, really hope Pete Doherty doesn't overdose. Not that the world would lose anyone of any worth or merit, but because he would instantly become a new hero, an untouchable icon of a generation etc etc etc. Same with Tupac, same with Kurt Cobain (who WAS talented, don't get me wrong on that one) - and Pete Doherty is quite simply not worthy of any praise at all.
"F**k Forever?" No, F**k YOU, Pete. And all your simple-minded herd of sheep fans. Forever.
