In today’s “this is your brain on drugs. ALL THE DRUGS.” story, Pete Doherty is apparently freaking out because he’s convinced that his London flat is being haunted by the ghost of Amy Winehouse. Which means we can probably assume one of two things: first, that Pete is seriously tripping balls right now. And second, that Amy is presumably spending her afterlife looking for a fix. “Fancy a quick little spin, love? *Heroin needle goes straight through her arm* Shit on a biscuit …” NME reports:
A source close to the former Libertines man is quoted in The Sun as saying that Doherty has fled to Paris as he is actively convinced that the ghost of the Back To Black singer is haunting his flat. The source told the paper: “He is utterly convinced that he has seen Amy Winehouse’s ghost. A lot of people will think his visions are probably drug-induced but he claims he is clean.” Doherty was close friends with the singer and has paid tribute to her during his live shows throughout the summer.
The sad thing is that if Pete believes this, then he honestly believes that Amy has nothing better to do with her time than hang around that one singer who’s always hopped up on something or another. So help me God, if any of you see my ghost hanging around dealers and junkies after I die, please just call Ghostbusters or Whoopi Goldberg, because I do not deserve to be a ghost.
