Pete Doherty's Homemade Crackpipe

(image via fashionverbatim)

The history of celebrities and crackrock is lurid. Chris Rock, lately of the bomb "I Think I Love My Wife," slung crack and had his own extra-crispy recipe (It's all in the vitamin B-12, people). So does Fitty Cent (Fitty prefers to lace his rock with Baking Soda). Now, Pete's innovations on the theme of the Crackrock. From Gatecrasher:

"Inexplicable Kate Moss boyfriend Pete Doherty distinguishes himself in the new issue of Vogue Hommes International by pulling out a crack pipe during his interview at the bar of Claridge's hotel in London.

"'I always stumble back into it sooner or later, even if it's for a half hour a day,' he says of the pipe, made from a miniature Martell Cognac bottle.

"Doherty .. also talks about the petty subway crime and prostitution he has engaged in to feed his habit.

"'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!'"

One almost is charmed by the ingenuity it took to craft a crackpipe out of a Martell Cognac bottle. Almost.

Yeah, it wasn't Pete that thought of that. Martell minis are common crack pipe fodder
