Pete Doherty Comes Cheap

Got a couple hundred dollars to spare? Great! You can book junkie Pete Doherty to come to your kids party...or just invite him over for mindless entertainment.

A junkie like Pete would be the last person I would want my kids around, but apparently a father in the UK feels different. He booked the Babyshambles frontman to come play at his daughters birthday bash for just $200--Kate Moss not included.

"The birthday girl's dad told him she was a huge fan, Pete was flattered and happy to oblige. He turned up and played his big hits. Everyone had a great time. Some partygoers asked him when he was going to start making dogs out of balloons. He took it in good humor."

When word spread about how cheap he was going for, his agent received more than 500 bookings--hopefully they weren't for kiddie birthdays.
