Sky Ferreira: 'I Know For A Fact I'm Not A Drug Addict'

Natural dark eye circles

Is Sky Ferreira (and her boyfriend Zachary Cole Smith) doing drugs or not? As you may remember, Iman wrote about the two being arrested a couple weeks ago, for possession of Ecstasy (Sky) and heroin (Zachary Cole) and the whole story didn’t look very good: they had a plastic bag containing a massive dose of heroin (42 decks) and were driving a car with stolen license plates…

Heroin is a serious drug, as many people have pointed out, I just know someone who died from it, and nobody should take this lightly! But Sky has just spoken up, explaining to Billboard how she reacted to the arrest:

‘It was a lot harder because people don’t really know… I legally can’t say much about what happened, but it’s not what it all seems. I kind of got fucked with. And it’s annoying because I wasn’t charged with his heroin. It says it. The public records are out there. I wasn’t charged with it. Trust me, if I was even anywhere near that, they would’ve charged me because they had no problem charging me with other shit. They were out to kind of like fuck with us. I’m scared to say more than that because I don’t want them to arrest us anymore. I’m not saying they went out of their way to fuck with us, but like what happened wasn’t… No one actually knows what happened besides Cole and I and the Saugerties police.’

She was not charged with Cole’s heroin, but what difference does it make? And what is this ‘They were out to kind of like fuck with us’? Is she insinuating that the police planted the heroin or something of this sort? She continues by saying she is not on drugs for sure, expressing her annoyance to be regarded as the heroin chic of the year,… but contradicting herself a bit to my sense:

‘If I thought someone had a problem, I would help them, I would want to get them help. I wouldn’t just make fun of them or attack them or use them as a way to get publicity for myself. Especially when it comes to people that know us and know the truth about it. I’m not telling people to feel sorry for us, but use it as a way to get people help instead of trying to embarrass them more.’

So… does she need help or not? I am not the kind of person to make fun of people taking drugs, that’s ridiculous, addiction is a serious habit that can kill you, but it’s hard to believe she and her boyfriend aren’t on drugs when they were caught with so much smack in their possession! But she continues:

‘I know for a fact I’m not a drug addict. That’s all I really have to say about it. I know I’m not a drug addict. I’m sorry if it hurt anyone and I’m not trying to promote drugs and it’s not like an image thing whatsoever. Do you think I want people thinking I’m a heroin addict? No. Do you think I want people thinking I’m a drug addict? No. But people have always said I’m a drug addict, just based on the fact that I have dark circles around my eyes— which I’ve had since I was a kid— or because I come across a certain way or dress a certain way. So that’s not something that’s new. But I would be in rehab; I would not be on this Vampire Weekend tour. And I wouldn’t be able to go on stage everyday and deal with this. But there are people who have been really nice and supported me and I feel good about that. I’ve learned a lot from the experience and I feel stronger from it. I’m sorry if it seems like I’m trying to promote drug use or something because I’m not. But I’m a human being and people get involved in bad situations some times. That’s really all I can say.’

If she wants to be credible, she has to explain herself a bit more, people are not that stupid! What does her ‘people get involved in bad situations some times’ mean? 42 bags of heroin cannot be a first time/one time situation, it denotes a serious habit. Explain more Sky or I am afraid we will have to believe that clichés are always true, and this is so sad.

And it’s even more depressing because the two have just announced their participation in this upcoming tribute show for Elliott Smith in Brooklyn on October 21st. And do we need more Elliott Smith-heroin association?
