You can't sing, you can't play and you look awful

We'd imagine that, set against his other struggles, adding Girls Aloud to his demons won't overworry Pete Doherty that much. But even so, it's going to sting:

Nadie Coyle said: "He's supposed to be this musical genius, but has anyone heard his singing?

"I've heard a Babyshambles album and it was like, 'What am I listening to!?' We could make a record that sounded like that, but could he make one that sounded like us?"

"I guess that if you like brown teeth and mouldy fingers, he's your guy," [said Kimberley].

Of course, the great tragedy is that there was a time where Doherty could have made an album which sounded like the great pop album Girls Aloud never quite deliver, had he wanted.
