Remember Pete Doherty? This frontman for the band The Babyshambles forced his cat to smoke crack cocaine.
Now, Doherty is in the news again for giving his ex-girlfriend, model Kate Moss, a dead mouse on a brooch as a gift.
According to a source close to Doherty, the mouse brooch has become “the latest outlandish fashion statement in Manhattan but Pete is trying to emphasize how he feels without Kate - defeated, crushed and broken, like the dead animal.
The source added: “Some people might find it disgusting but itâ€™s still art, if in its extreme sense. Nobody balks when Damien Hirst puts a shark in formaldehyde and this is very similar.â€
Is this the next must have accessory trend of the moment?
Well, rocker Courtney Love gave one to a friend (designer Marc Jacobs’ boyfriend), and he was pictured wearing the mouse brooch at Fashion Week in New York. When a disgusted photographer asked him to remove it, he refused saying Courtney Love had given it to him as a present.
