Some Thoughts On The News That Pete Doherty & Macaulay Culkin Are Roommates

According to reports, Pete Doherty and Macaulay Culkin are now living as roommates in Paris. Culkin is effectively “home not alone.” Rachel and I have so many questions.

Me: Rachel, what do you think an average day in the Macaulay Culkin/Pete Doherty home is like? I think it goes something like this: Wake up, cigarettes, cartoons, Pete and Macaulay both spend a couple of hours trying to get their agents on the phone. Then more cigarettes.  Then online poker.

Rachel: Pete plays a little guitar, puts on a ton of bracelets.

Me: Oh my, we haven’t even gotten to the part of the day where they do their hair together.

Pete's Alive -- And Acting!

Pete Doherty must be part cat; it seems like he’s had a zillion lives. Despite his rampant heroin addiction, he’s still around and kicking — and doing new projects. Like a French film with Charlotte friggin’ Gainsbourg called “Confession of a Child of the Century,” where Doherty plays a 19th century bon vivant with a bad attitude and an addiction (WHAT A STRETCH). Anyway, here’s a trailer featuring the walking heroin husk. [Guardian]

Musician Pete Doherty is one of my favorite misunderstood anti-heroes, a true artist and transcendent thinker whose messages are often sadly sacrificed to his drug-addled lifestyle. He said it best in one of his own songs: “I’m so clever, but clever ain’t wise.” His inconsistencies are glaringly apparent, but Pete is openly, unapologetically who he is, and he’s so damn compelling!

His most publicized relationship goes without saying (I’ll just say it anyway, Kate effing Moss!) but he also happened to be a great friend (and predictably terrible influence) of the late Amy Winehouse. Together they created a series of bizarre, likely crack-fueled YouTube videos and I guess they made art together, too, because as part of an auction filled with his belongings, Pete is auctioning off a painting that he claims incorporates Amy’s blood. Yes, the musician says that his work, “a portrait of his band The Libertines,” was created with the help of his young son and the deceased siren. Amy’s mark is on the right side, next to where it says “Ladylike,” which is also the title of the painting. The piece is anticipated to fetch over £80,000 ($104,000 US) when it’s sold later this week in London. Of all the oddities Pete and Amy created together, why, oh, why couldn’t just one of them have been a song? [Hint]

The 7 Worst Ever Celebrity Dads

Michael Lohan Arrests

The many arrests of Michael Lohan. Read More »

I’m fully convinced that Michael Lohan’s headline-making domestic violence arrest yesterday was copied straight out of Mel Gibson’s playbook. Of course, Mel’s famed blowouts were uniquely terrible because some of them were directed towards the teenage son of ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva. Last month, Mel paid $100,000 to Oksana’s 14-year-old for the guarantee that he wouldn’t sue the once-respected actor for reportedly “terrorizing” him during altercations with his mother. That’s low, even for Mel Gibson. Additionally, his own toddler daughter with Grigorieva bore witness to a number of her father’s detonations.

It’s hard to top this sh**ty parenting, but surprise, surprise, more than a few celebs come come! After the jump, six more celebrities who I definitely wouldn’t want for a dad.

Frisky Rant: Puh-lease, Pete Doherty Is NOT Fat

Last week, Babyshambles and Libertines’ frontman Pete Doherty showed off some serious hotness at the launch of his men’s accessory line. While his designs are gorgeous, people seemed more interested in calling the recently rehabbed rock star a heffer. From British papers to bitchy blogs, the poor dude was dubbed “fat” and “bloated.” And those are just superlatives in the headlines! Keep reading »

Pete Doherty Launches Jewelry Line (And Looks A Little Bloated)

Another day, another random celeb announcing a fashion line of some sort. In the spotlight now is bad boy rocker and one-time Kate Moss boyfriend Pete Doherty, who just launched a vintage-inspired jewelry line called Albion Trinketry. Designed in collaboration with Hannah Martin, the collection is “inspired by a time when men carried pocket watches and wore their best clothes on Sundays,” according to Vogue UK. (We totally called this! The monocle will be back in full force before you know it.) Keep reading »

    Who Should Paris Hilton “Date” Next?

    Benji Madden from Good Charlotte is a goody-goody next to wild child, Paris Hilton. Although they are supposedly “still in love,” they broke up due to lifestyle differences. She thought tattoos and a boy in the band would get her into the rock’ n’ roll lifestyle, but she picked a guy from a band loved by 13-year-olds. So, because her idea of a good time backstage is not getting a sugar high from pixie sticks, Paris decided to move on up and find a real tough guy, not just one who looks the part. Needless to say, Paris has gotta be a little wiser if she wants to live on the edge. She’s clearly going to need some help, especially since she’s also hunting for a new BFF. So we’ve got some suggestions for her new BF (you know this chick won’t stay single for long), after the jump…
