Just days after trying to smash a guitar over a photographer’s face, Pete Doherty was arrested and released over the weekend after being spotted in a car that was reported stolen. The arrest came when he fled from police just hours after telling fans at a gig, “I’m never getting married. I don’t believe in it. Kate and I are in love – I worship her – but we’re not going down the aisle. I’m happy the way it is.”

Pete Doherty is like the damn Hamburgler. For some reason because he has an oblong head nobody seems to care when he steals cars or tries to murder people with his guitar. Instead he gets a slap on the wrist, everybody has a good chuckle, and then he’s set free to pull off his next mini caper. I’m always surprised to see pictures of him as a real person, because I always think he’ll photograph as a 2D cartoon character.

    I have to wholeheartedly agree with cindylou here, saying “who is this guy” when you are on a computer and would simply have to paste his name into youtube or google to actually figure it out means that youre not really curious and are trying to imply that because you don’t know about him already he can’t be anything worthwhile. I didn’t know about his music until I got curious after seeing so much written about him A FEW YEARS AGO. He writes really sharp lyrics over generally catchy rock music, and the fifteen-year old in me remembers how cool I thought people who could get into so much trouble, do so many drugs, play rock music and sleep with hot chicks were, and he has proven himself on each of those scores. You have to admit that part of you attitude has to come from jealousy, for all his problems he seems to be leading a pretty interesting life.

    Pete Doherty is a musical god! The Libertines and BabyShambles were the best bands out of England in a long long time. He is very breathtakingly stunning and he lives his life, He is as close to perfection as you’ll find. Kate Moss is very lucky, She does NOT deserve him. What would you jealous cunts know though he’s not a stupid freckley red head bitch or a trailer trash slut with ugly kids, So no need for you to pay attention. It’s okay though kids, Ignorance is bliss.

    you talk some amount of shit
    being from britain
    your what i call “stupid fan bitch”
    he is very musically talented
    and he doesnt go about trying to be a “bad ass rocker”
    i agree
    but he is NOWHERE near close to perfection
    peters got it hard and you know it

    so dont just try act smart just because your british and understand, and his fan base isnt spread so far about in america.

    - boy, in britain, your what i call “stupid fan girl bitch”
    he is a very talented artist, yes
    and i agree with you sticking up for him
    he is not trying to be a “badass rocker”
    he doesnt try to be anything

    although he is NOWHERE NEAR perfection
    as you know
    so it would be ignorant to even imply it
    peters had it hard
    and yes the libertines and babyshambles are fantastic.

    you just shoudlnt portray the wrong kind of information and act like he is some kind of god to america who clearly arent as big a fan base as britain

    and also to everyone else,
    peter is a poet
    he is always being mistreated
    and shown the wrong way through the media
    i laughed at this article
    “poor peter” i thought, just sticking up for himself
    america, this is not a stunt
    its just our peter showing his hatred to horrible people.

    Boorish and infantile, Pete Doherty has none of the class and charisma of previous drug addicted musicians like Lou Reed, Keith Richards or even Johnny Thunders.

    He’s just a punk brat whose sophmoric antics are an attempt to cover a shallow and essentially meaningless musical career.

    Fuck him and the Union Jack he rode in on.
