Charming, musically inclined junkie Pete Doherty was voted “Hero of the Year” by readers of NME magazine. As as testament to his heroism, Doherty played an entire set at London’s Rhythm Factory the night before the award ceremony, despite being afflicted with a visible, gushing nosebleed. Which, of course, was due to “a scrap with his cat,” not prodigious amounts of good cocaine.

Maybe the readers of NME got confused and thought they were voting for the “Heroin of the Year,” not to be confused with the “Heroine of the Year” or the “Hermione of the Year.”

Well of course his kitty slashed his nose. He gets it all hooked on the crack and then doesn’t share. I’d cut that bitch too.

I wish I was there to see the moment the Hero Of The Year was announced. They open the envelope and they say, “It’s Pete Doherty.”

And at the back of the room Batman stands up, throws down his napkin and storms out, shouting, “This is bull****!”

Thanks mae! At first I thought you were calling me names….I may be a character and a tool & I’m sure I’ve been an accessory at some point but no one has ever called me a start menu!

I think it’s a toss up between Amy and Pete in Deathwatch. Judging from this pic Pete’s taking the lead.

Of course it was a scrap with his kitty. The cat was going for the residual “matter” underneath, and in the air passages of Pete’s nose. Everyone knows that, if anything, Pete always tells the truth. It was a scrap with his cat.
