Nick Cave Trashing Hotel Rooms and Taking Drugs - A Top Story This Week
When asked if Cave has trashed his hotel room yet: The room in this hotel isn't f**king worth trashing. Well, if you kicked over the ashtray you'd be trashing the room. It's so f**king dark in this hotel, I can't even find my room. It's like England during the blitz.
Cave on the bleakness drug addicted celebrities' experience: The only thing that's bleak about Amy Winehouse is that she's pursued by the media the whole time. Anyone who's a drug addict has these things going on. It's what happens. Everyone knows that. It's just particularly difficult because you have the whole of Middle England watching you do it. You can't go out the front door to score, or go into rehab, or whatever, without doing it publicly. It's really f**ked up. It's in no one's interest for them to get better. It's certainly not in the media's interest for Britney to, you know, suddenly come out and say, "Hey I'm alright!' They want to keep her as close to dead as they can. They don't want her to die of course. That would kill the golden calf. But it's a horrible indictment on the whole society. - more on this story
