Kids: Crack will do wonders for your career

Kate Moss was awarded the Model of the Year last night, despite being caught doing coke last year.

"I think it's a bad reflection on the world of fashion," said Jane Ennis, editor of the British celebrity magazine Now. "The fact that she has become an even bigger icon since getting into all this trouble is fantastically decadent. Sometimes commercial interests should be set aside to look at the wider picture."

George Ruston, director of Hope UK, a drug education charity in Britain, pronounced the award "unhelpful" and said that advertisers were as much to blame as Moss. But he added that for every young person who looks up to Moss as a role model, many do not, and the problems of alcohol, tobacco and cannabis abuse are worse than that of cocaine.

"She's become a bigger name since the scandal and anyone who affiliates himself with her name will reap the publicity,” said Bryan Roberts, analyst at London trend spotting agency Planet Retail.

I guess it's wrong to give such a high award to a strung out crackwhore, but really, what model isn't? Except Tyra because she doesn't need crack to make her crazy! That's why I heart America's Next Top Model. So fabulous.
