It’s been revealed that Bob Dylan had to battle his way through a heroin addiction back in the early ’60s after an unheard interview with the singer was found.
Dylan’s friend, Robert Shelton, was interviewing the singer on his private plane back in March 1966 when the conversation about his heroin addiction was brought up. Here’s what the singer had to say:
“I kicked a heroin habit in New York City. I got very, very strung out for a while, I mean really, very strung out. And I kicked the habit. I had about a $25-a-day habit and I kicked it.”
Dylan then went on to speak about how that after he was labelled a genius for his music he started to feel suicidal, here’s what he said about that:
“Death to me is nothing … death to me means nothing as long as I can die fast. Many times I’ve known I could have been able to die fast, and I could have easily gone over and done it. I’ll admit to having this suicidal thing … but I came through this time. I’m not the kind of cat that’s going to cut off an ear if I can’t do something. I’m the kind of cat that would just commit suicide. I’d shoot myself in the brain if things got bad. I’d jump from a window … man, I would shoot myself. You know I can think about death, man, openly.”
According to PopEater these tapes are being used for a movie that is currently in production about Dylan’s life. I can’t say I’m really shocked by this, I mean after all what musician wasn’t strung out at some stage in their life back in the 60s and 70s?
Just yesterday it was announced that Whitney Houston is in an out-patient rehabilitation program for drugs and alcohol and now she has been given a ban from seeing Prince in concert because she is basically a mess.
TMZ reports that people working for Prince have gotten so sick of her drunken behavior and constant ticket demands so they have now banned her from attending his future shows.
On top of being drunk, and possibly on drugs, at every show she also wanted to get up on stage at most of the shows so they eventually let her up on stage at The Forum in Los Angeles and this is the result of that:
What a mess. In other news, Radar Online are reporting that Whitney’s is going back to the old days with her choice of drugs if Bobby Brown is to be believe. He is going around saying that Whitney is back on crack. A friend of Bobby said “It’s the worst it’s ever been. Whitney went on tour again, and that’s when the relapse occurred. Whitney’s shutting a lot of people out of her life. It is a dire situation.”
Let’s all get a prayer circle together and hope she gets herself together, but I honestly don’t see it happening for a long time.
Earlier today TMZ broke the news that Whitney Houston had checked herself in to an out-patient rehabilitation program but sources close to the singer said it wasn’t for drugs or alcohol. But now it’s been confirmed that it is indeed for drugs.
Whitney entered the program at her own will about 10 days ago to help battle her ongoing trouble with alcohol and drugs, a rep for the singer confirms it telling People:
“Whitney Houston is currently in an out-patient rehab program for drug and alcohol treatment, Whitney voluntarily entered the program to support her long-standing recovery process.”
In the out-patient program Whitney is allowed out in public as long as she wears a montior on her. A source also said that part of the reason she entered this program is to help “cleanse” herself for a new movie.
Vanessa Hudgens was among the many celebrities who attended Coachella over the weekend but she is probably the one who got the most coverage after she spotted licking a white substance off her fingers. Many people assumed she was licking up some coke or ecstasy. Not the case according to her rep.
In between downing shots and beers Vanessa was seen sitting down and dipping her finger into a plastic bag when she took her finger out she was spotted licking up the white substance but her people are saying that the substance was just a bit of white chocolate.
I don’t know what to think, I mean her rep is hardly going to say yeah she was licking up the drugs but at the same time is Vanessa Hudgens really stupid enough to do drugs in the open for everybody to see? What do you think it really is?
Chris Brown seems to always find himself in some kind of controversy and now the latest, not long after his nude photos leaking, he was spotted by X17 (via Allie Is Wired) smoking something that looks like weed.
Not only was he smoking something that looks like weed but he broke another law – talking on his cellphone. I sure would like to know how he’s managing to drive because both of his hands are of the wheel.
Decide for yourself – do you think it’s weed that Chris Brown is smoking?
It seems like Mike ‘The Situation’ Sorrentino has watched the ending scene of Cruel Intentions a little too many times because he has apparently been caught snorting cocaine from his coke chain.
The Fork Party took these photos and video from last weeks episode of Jersey Shore in which The Situation robbed Pauly D’s ex-girlfriend and started getting freaky with her on the dancefloor. But it seems he was doing a bit more than just dancing.
While getting down on the dancefloor The Situation decided to examine his necklace with his nose and also gave the girl a little sniff of it, after that they both wiped their nose. Some people could say it’s coincidence and they both just have a runny nose but I’m willing to bet that they were indeed doing a bit of coke. Thoughts?
There is a new celebrity drug scandal every few months so since the latest one involves Miley Cyrus has just been caught smoking a bong, The Frisky have come up with 13 other celebrities that have been caught doing a bit of drugs.
OK, I kind of have to give it up for the headline “Harry Pothead.” A 2009 cover of London’s Daily Mail featured a big old photo of Daniel Radcliffe, his face painted, puffing on what they claim is a joint. The shot was taken at a party held at his sometime-girlfriend’s apartment, and a fellow party-goer totally narc-ed on him. “Daniel was laughing and seemed to find it funny,” she said. “But he didn’t really look like he knew what was going on.” Daniel’s camp is, of course, rushing to his defense. “We categorically deny the allegations regarding Daniel Radcliffe published in today’s Daily Mirror,” his publicist said. “Daniel does smoke the occasional roll-up cigarette, but he was not doing anything more than this.”
In 2008, TMZ posted a pic of Kristen Stewart smoking what they alleged was a bowl.
In 2004, The National Enquirer had a fruit of a story—Charlize Theron smoking what appeared to be pot out of an apple. Her camp had no comment on the images.
Everyone thought Kate Moss’s career was over when images of her cutting lines of cocaine appeared on the cover of The Daily Mail in 2005. But this girl has more lives than a cat. After an apology and stint in rehab, she came back—landing a cover of Vanity Fair and more campaigns than ever.
The video never surfaced—which makes us a little suspect that it never existed. But in 2008, The National Enquirer claimed to have gotten its hand on a video of Angelina Jolie snorting coke and doing heroin in the ‘90s. In the footage, she supposedly says, “Wow, this is really good smack—not that cheap crap that’s been stepped on.”
In 2007, paparazzi caught Mischa Barton puffing on a rolled item in the driver’s seat of her car. It was almost like foreshadowing—a year later she was arrested for possession and driving under the influence of marijuana.
This is strange. A full month before that nakey tape of Rebecca Gayheart, Eric Dane, and Kari Ann Peniche appeared on the internet, the National Enquirer ran a picture of Rebecca, before she met Eric, naked in the bathtub with another woman, holding what is allegedly a crack pipe and lighter.
A few days after Paris Hilton told Larry King that she’d never done drugs, a video clip of her supposedly smoking a pipe in an Amsterdam hash bar popped up on the internet. Here’s a still shot.
It’s actually hard to count the number of times Amy Winehouse has been caught on camera puffing on what sure looks like a joint. This is just one example
Michael Phelps went the apology route hardcore when News of the World revealed a picture of him smoking a bong at a party in 2008.
In 2007, a “friend” of Lindsay Lohan’s released a tape that supposedly shows her snorting coke in the bathroom stall of a New York bathroom.
The Blemish posted oodles of pix of Cameron Diaz and Drew Barrymore sharing what appears to be a joint on vacation in Hawaii in 2007.
In 2009, Zac Braff was photographed in a New York club doing a little puff puff of something.
I find it funny how most of these celebrities were caught just smoking weed,

Ever since Demi Lovato checked into rehab last week there has been a bunch of rumors flying around about the real reason, most of them hinted that the blind items about her having a love affair with coke is true. Here is another one to add to the pile.
Brian Payne, a college student in Texas, tells Life & Style magazine that when he was at a party he was shocked at how much coke Demi snorted in one night. He says…
“She was doing line after line like a pro – and she was 17 at the time, “I just remember her doing it [cocaine] as if she had been doing it for a long time, it didn’t seem like something new to her.”
Another source says that ever since breaking up with Joe Jonas her partying has gotten even worse and she has been hitting the drink and drugs hard.
Now I’m not saying there is any truth to these rumors, the kid could just be saying this stuff for money but with all the blind items and then her checking into rehab you do start to wonder has another Disney chick gone down the rocky road.

For the past year there has been blind items hinting that Demi Lovato was heading down the Lindsay Lohan road by having a major alcohol and coke problem, she has now checked into rehab but her rep says it’s not for drink or drugs.
The Disney star was on tour with The Jonas Brothers but she has pulled out halfway through because she has gone to seek help for “emotional and physical issues”. Her rep says…
“Demi Lovato left her tour early this weekend in order to seek medical treatment for emotional and physical issues she has dealt with for some time. Demi has decided to take personal responsibility for her actions and seek help. She is doing just that. [Demi] regrets not being able to finish her tour, but is looking forward to getting back to work in the near future.”
Apparently what set her off to go to rehab is that she got into a fight with some girl who was working on the tour, so she decided to check into rehab. Maybe they were fighting over the last line?
Seriously how many times have we heard about these bitches going to rehab for shit like emotional and physical issues? Then a year later they admit to have been strung out on drugs. Not that I’m saying that’s what it is or anything.

Angelina Jolie did an interview for the Charlie Rose show back in 2000 to promote “Girl, Interrupted” and now her former drug dealer says that she was on cocaine the whole time.
Watch the video above and it’s pretty obvious that she is definitely after doing a bit of coke before the interview, especially at the beginning you can see she is out of it. Now as we all know Angelina has not been shy about shooting up with heroin in the past so I’m kind of confused why her former dealer is coming forward now.
Franklin Meyer, her dealer, says “We’d see each other two to three times a week when she was in town. She would buy cocaine and also heroin, she would generally spend about $100 each time — that would buy maybe half a gram of coke and a 10th of a gram of heroin. She would snort the cocaine and the heroin in front of me. It didn’t seem to matter to her who else was there.”
Apparently the pair met back in 1997 at the Chelsea Hotel and that is when he became her dealer on a regular basis. He also says she had pictures of dead bodies up on her wall.
None of this shocks me, I don’t know why magazines would even pay a dealer money to be told crap like this. We all know that she loves drugs already.

In case you don’t know him – Danny Dyer is an English actor, well he has written his autobiography “Danny Dyer: Straight Up” and in it he talks about how he has always and probably always will take drugs.
The 33-year-old father of two says that he will continue taking drugs as long as it does not affect his work or his family life, and he is unashamed about his drug habits. He writes…
“I’ve always taken drugs and I probably always will, but there’s a difference between having the odd crafty bump up the snout as a reward for a job well done and letting it rule your life. You can’t brush it under the carpet and try and pretend it doesn’t happen, because it does happen. It happens all over the world every night, millions and millions of people.”
I’m not going to make judgments on him for doing drugs but he probably shouldn’t be writing this type of stuff in a book that children, especially his kids when they grow up, could easily pick up and think doing drugs is fine.

George Michael was released from prison earlier today after serving four weeks behind bars for driving his Range Rover while under the influence of cannabis.
George served half of his eight week sentence that he received last month, they snuck him out of the big house a couple of hours early to avoid all the paparazzi. After he got released he stepped outside of his home in London to talk to the press. He said…
“‘I’m coming out here on my own so that you’ll realise I just want to start again. I’m going to try to stop running away from you guys. You’ll get sick of me. You’ll see me about. I just want to say thank you for everybody who has supported me in there, it’s quite inspirational. It’s going to be nothing to do with prison.”
During his stint in prison he released a statement saying that he was doing fine and thanked all his fans for the thousands of letters he received, he also said that as a way to repay his fans he would release new music.

Natalie Mejiam, one of the singers from Girlicious, got busted for cocaine possession back in March but her court case has only happened now and as predicted she got off with it.
When she was pulled over, along with a guy named Peter Asencio, she was found to be carrying more than a dozen individual packages in her purse so they were both arrested for possession of coke.
When she appeared in court she pled guilty to drug felony charges but the judge has let her off with it and she has received no punishment at all. The only thing she has to do is stay out of trouble for the next 18 months and then the charge will be wiped from her record.
It must feel good to be a celebrity and know that you can basically do anything and get off with it.
