Enrique Iglesias Has Never Done Drugs

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Drugs, Features,

Enrique IglesiasEnrique Iglesias has never dabbled in drugs.

The "Hero" hitmaker claims he's never been tempted to try an illegal substance, despite being surrounded by people in the industry that regularly snort cocaine:

"I was never tempted by drugs. The amount of times I've been asked, 'You don't do coke? But you're in music. You really don't do coke?' I don't like sticking stuff up my nose. Get me a drink, get me a rum. I drink, I'm a social drinker but I feel like I can control it. There are friends of mine who go out at the weekend and do a lot of cocaine and do any drug and be perfectly fine throughout the week. But some others can't do that. I need my eight hours' sleep, that's for sure."

Meanwhile, the 38-year-old singer believes that Justin Bieber, 19 - who was arrested last month for driving under the influence (DUI), driving with an expired license and resisting arrest in Miami - is just being young and experimenting with life.

The Darkness Used Cocaine on Stage

The Darkness on stage

The Darkness used to have three lines of cocaine ready for each of them before going onstage.

The "Growing on Me" rockers imploded in 2006 due to their drug use and partying, and looking back now they understand how out of control their tours had become. Talking about their cocaine use on their final tour, guitarist Dan Hawkins said, "I'm not going to lie to you, it was the most debauched fun I've ever had. [We had a] Pre-Show Line, Mid-Show Line and After Show-Line. That would be in various holding places, sometimes in a tent behind the stage; usually the same area where costume changes happened. Then we'd just get hammered until four or five in the morning and drag ourselves to the next venue with raging hangovers."

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Drugs, Obituaries,

Bobby BrownBobby Brown had no idea Whitney Houston was taking drugs before she died.

The 48-year-old singer died in Beverly Hills in February from accidental drowning caused by cocaine use and heart failure, and although her former husband Bobby has been widely blamed for introducing her to illegal substances, he claims he has been clean for seven years and was shocked to discover Whitney was still taking drugs.

"It's just unexplainable .. how one could, you know, (say that I) got her addicted to drugs. I'm not the reason she's gone. I was hurt. I was hurt ... because, you know, me being off of narcotics for the last seven years, I felt that she was, you know, I didn't know she was struggling with it still. But at the same time, you know, listen, it's a hard fight. It's a hard fight to, you know, maintain sobriety that way," he told Today's Matt Lauer.

It was claimed after Whitney's death that she and Bobby had been planning to remarry in Las Vegas. Whitney had apparently wanted to reunite with her former husband of 14 years and the pair had decided on an intimate ceremony with their daughter Bobbi Kristina as the only witness.


Demi Lovato: Promoters Gave Me Drugs

Demi LovatoDemi Lovato believes promoters gave her free drugs in a bid to get her to return to their clubs and restaurants. The former Disney star claims people in Hollywood used to fall over themselves to give her illegal substances.

"Promoters gave me drugs and alcohol in restaurants or clubs. They wanted me to come back so I would be seen there. They were basically kissing my a**. I thought they were my friends. I thought I was having fun. Being a celebrity can be dangerous. Nobody says 'no.' That's why so many end up overdosing and dying. It could definitely have happened to me," she said.

The "Skyscraper" singer - who also suffered from bulimia - admits she used to use alcohol and drugs to drown out her misery. "It's something I don't really want to talk about. What I can say is that I was depressed. I would come off stage in front of 18,000 people and suddenly be alone in a hotel room. I'd come crashing down and would try to find a way to recreate that feeling, to stay 'up,'" she said when asked about rumors she used to take cocaine.

"I just liked morphine, but I had to take a lot of it because it didn't stay in your system for a long time. And I'd have my cocaine, and I had my marijuana, and I had my Cialis and Viagra and my little friends all sitting there," he said.
