Page Six's lead item today is all about ex-druggie Kate Moss' extremely well-reasoned and ultra-smart love affair with current druggie Pete Doherty, former singer of The Libertines:

"Supermodel Kate Moss' pals are worried over her hot new romance with a rock musician known as England's 'most famous drug addict.'

Moss, 31, hooked up with ex-Libertines frontman Pete Doherty, 25, at her birthday bash earlier this month. The bad boy Brit rocker, a huge star in the U.K. who reportedly has a $1,500-a-day crack and heroin habit, was kicked out of the Libertines last year after failing to conquer his addiction...

Doherty...spent two months in jail for burglarizing a former bandmate and has failed to make it through rehab.

Moss, who had a baby girl, Lila Grace, with magazine editor Jefferson Hack in 2002 (they've since parted ways), tried to overcome her own addictions with a stint at London's Priory clinic in 1998. But her love of partying continues apace. Misadventures like an incident when she broke her toe last September suggest she hadn't curbed her wild ways...

Doherty's manager, James Mullord, told the London Guardian he's not sure how long Doherty will stay alive given his self-destructive lifestyle.

Doherty himself is optimistic, however, about his romance with Moss. 'I'm kicking drugs for her,' he told British TV show 'Orange Playlist' in an interview airing Feb. 17.

'I've really found love with Kate. I think it will last,' Doherty insisted. 'She's good for me because she's got a beautiful soul and I think I can trust her . . . I believe her when she says she loves me and I know I mean it when I say I love her. We got each other's initial tattooed in little hearts.'

The London Sun reports Moss has already introduced Doherty to her family."

Now, before we cast the first stones, there ARE certain mitigating factors. Such as the total hottness of Pete Doherty. I mean just LOOK at this dreamboat:

She'd be a fool NOT to throw herself at him! Hubba hubba! Seriously, could that face have been created in any gene pool other than England's? It takes thousands of years of pasty, frail, big-nosed DNA to produce a mug like that, let me tell you.

And, of course, he might be dead soon, so that's pretty exciting. I do like The Libertines--but, uh, he's not in the band anymore. And his new band is called Babyshambles, which is possibly the worst band name I've ever heard in my life, second only to Squid Vicious.

I have also been laboring under the delusion that Pete Doherty was totally gay with the guitar player from The Libertines, the one whose house he broke into to steal things so he could buy drugs a while back. What with all the songs being about each other and the non-stop "we love each other" innuendo and the photos sitting in each other's laps and whatnot. Silly me!

Obviously, Kate knows what she is doing. She always has such an intelligent look about her, after all. Always so pleasant and unassuming. Thoughtful. Dignified. Ladylike. She is a mother and a supermodel, after all, and very mature and responsible for her age. Oh, wait--she's 31? Huh. I thought she was still 17. Oh.

Still, though, we must all congratulate her on her doomed, sordid, drug-fueled love romp through the dark, hideous underbelly of London's rock scene. Any love that involves tiny tattoos of initials inside hearts is bound to succeed. Kudos, milady, kudos. Well-played!

You forget the teeth. We didn't even get to see the teeth.

Hi - this is Julie, Sperry's friend from San Jose. She pointed me here and it's part of my morning ritual to read your musings. Kudos!

Perhaps he's not so much "kicking" drugs as cutting back on his own intake so he can split his stash with his Very Special Kate.

Either way, sounds like a win-win for a couple destined to warm the hearts of citizens worldwide. I look forward to more news on the batshit crazy antics of these two in the future.

I happen to think Babyshambles is a totally BRILLIANT band name and am very jealous that I didn't think of it. That and ChachiFace.

Right after I posted this I went to sleep and then sat bolt upright in bed, screaming: "I forgot to mention THE TEETH!" Once again I bring great shame upon the House of Felt Up...
