Doherty Wants To Reinvent Clean Image

Subscribe to Babyshambles alerts

Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty is keen to dispel his image as a drug-taking bad boy, insisting his reputation doesn't reflect his true personality. The rocker has earned a name for himself for his wild drug-taking antics, but claims he is a new person after kicking his heroin habit last year (07). He says, "Obviously I'm off the drugs now. (My public persona is) nothing more than a horrible, cartoon-like monster that bears no relation to the quiet, shy, retiring, teetotal, police-loving, clean-nosed poet you see before you now."

Okay now I think this is becoming a fairytale faced all the way around the other way!!!! Pete may be trying to stay clean but don't make him sound like Peter Pan!!!! He still has his demons to deal with and its not going to be easy for him. I pray that he stays clean, no relapses or anything he still lives under alot of pressure so I pray that he can maintain the level of sobriety that he has reached.But I wouldn't put him that far up on a pedastal and then when he falls and hits the ground its like wow what a disgrace. He has to take one day at a time just like everyone else does.
