Some pieces of celebrity news would legitimately shock us. If there were Julia Stiles nude pics somewhere, for instance, we'd be stunned.
Other news items are so frequent that they regularly elicit yawns. Such as when singer Pete Doherty was arrested early Monday on suspicion of drug possession.
Police say Doherty was arrested with two others, a man and a woman, after being stopped in a car in Tower Hamlets in east London.
The troubled "singer," who has had an on-off relationship with supermodel Kate Moss (with whom he supposedly made the rumored Kate Moss sex tape) had been performing with his band, Babyshambles, at the V Festival in England on Sunday.
Pete Doherty was taken to an east London police station and remains in custody.
A Scotland Yard spokesman said: "At 2:30 a.m. officers in Tower Hamlets arrested a 28-year-old man on suspicion of possessing drugs."
Pete Doherty was warned by a magistrate earlier this month he faced a prison sentence if he failed to demonstrate trying to kick his drug habit.
The singer pleaded guilty in July to possessing crack cocaine, heroin, cannabis and ketamine. What the hell IS ketamine? Does it matter?
No. But someone's gotta get this guy together with Lindsay Lohan.
