The Guardian newspaper asked him if he was using the drug at that time. “Was I? On that occasion, yeah," he replied. “I"ve done many different things that I shouldn''t have done, once or twice. Of course. Nobody wants to regularly smoke crack," he said.
And he can"t see the harm in his habits, taking a swipe at his pal Sir Elton John for trying to help him conquer his demons. “People want to see me as tragic with all the cottaging and drug-taking. I don"t see them as weaknesses any more. It"s just who I am," he said. “Elton (John) will not be happy until I bang on his door in the middle of the night saying, 'Please, please, help me, Elton. Take me to rehab." It"s not going to happen," he added.
