Pete Doherty spoke of his time behind bars last night with â€˜paedophilesâ€™ and â€˜murderers.â€™
The shambolic singer was speaking on the day that he was handed a 12 month community order for heroin possession.
In the chat with Radio 1â€™s Newsbeat, Doherty admitted that heâ€™s going to stay off some of the heavier drugs, saying: â€œDefinitely as far as the crack and heroin are concerned. Iâ€™m getting an implant in four days.â€
â€œAs far as the drugs are concerned, itâ€™s simple â€“ Iâ€™d rather be on the out with no smack than inside prison with no smack.â€
Dohertyâ€™s temper flared when he was asked if he thinks he avoided prison only because he was famous, blasting: â€œWhat do you think Iâ€™ve been doing for the last 12 days? Picking Tulips?
â€œIâ€™ve been sat in a cell sweating it out, fully aware of the circumstances.
â€œBut Iâ€™ve also been with murderers, on occasions a couple of brick walls away from paedophiles.
â€œIâ€™m not a threat to society, Iâ€™m not selling drugs to anyoneâ€™s children. Iâ€™m not encouraging or ever will encourage people to take drugs.â€
The conversation ended a bit ambiguously when he was asked if he was on drugs. Doherty replied â€œWhat now?â€ and put down the phone.
Erm, we'll leave you to make your own decision.
