Pete Doherty -- the UK's oft-arrested, drug-taking, sometimes-musician paparazzi magnet -- appears to have a YouTube account. Click here to see the Libertines and Babyshambles member's supposed profile. The videos are mainly of two (very, VERY) cute cats -- named Little Potatoes and Boadicea, apparently -- playing, with a few grainy performance videos and such thrown in.
As expected, though, weirdness/uncomfortable moments abound, including footage of what looks like a Vh1 special, with Rolling Stone writer Jenny Eliscu perhaps talking about Babyshambles. The "favorited" videos are more alarming: Among clips by the Smiths, the La's and Saint Etienne is a four-minute clip titled "Smoking Crack in Hell's Kitchen" and one called "Illegal drugs and how they got that way," from the History Channel. Yikes.
