In a move that has disaster written all over it, Kate Moss and Pete Doherty confirmed they were engaged while they sang at a Babyshambles concert.
From The Daily Mail:
Babyshambles frontman Pete Doherty dedicated a song to lover Kate Moss, describing her as his fiancee as she appeared on stage alongside him.
Performing a solo gig at the Hackney Empire in east London, he introduced the track “KP Nuts”, and said: “I am dedicating this song…” before the crowds interrupted him to shout out “Kate, Kate”.
The singer then replied: “Yes, to my beautiful fiancee.”
Moss was wearing a ring on her engagement finger as she performed briefly alongside her boyfriend, who was wearing a grey suit, colourful necklaces and his trademark hat.
I’m shocked Kate has confirmed the engagement–she obviously doesn’t give a damn anymore what her lucrative contracts think of her relationship with Doherty, and while it’s endearing that she’s putting love over money, I doubt Pete’s love and heroin addicition are going to keep her in Superfine skinny jeans.
Also, why isn’t there an English child welfare officer looking into this? They sent someone over to Britney’s house when Sean P. fell on his noggin and it wasn’t even her fault– surely they can send someone over to check that Lila Grace isn’t exposed to Pete’s needles? Kate’s marrying a straight up addict who makes artwork out of other people’s blood! The man’s fingers (not just his nails, his fingers) are so nicotine stained that if he lit and smoked his pinky finger he probably wouldn’t notice that it wasn’t a cigarette! By the amount of pictures taken of this woman stumbling in and out of parties and pretending to be Marianne Faithful’s second coming, it seems really unlikely that she’s the most maternal figure to take care of a four-year-old little girl.
This couple has (what could be described at the best of times) a roller coaster relationship, so if they manage to stumble up the aisle, I’ll be surprised. I do know this: someone needs to stop this marriage from happening before they try bringing out a Lennon/Ono style album to the masses.
