Mary J Blige, troubled R 'n' B singer, has been telling London-based free sheet The Metro about her struggles to give up narcotics. Clearly something of an ordeal, what with that cocaine being so moreish and all.
But apparently the event that gave her the final reason to quit was the September 11 attacks in 2001: "A few weeks later, New York City blew up and that was it – I was getting a warning. I was out."
It's a fascinating take on a complex event that has so far escaped even the most paranoid conspiracy theorists - that the Word Trade Center was taken out, with a loss of over 3,000 lives, in an attempt to cure Ms Blige of her fondness for the old Bolivian Marching Powder. God must have gotten out of bed the wrong side on that day.
But, of course, it had a happy ending as Mary managed to release a new CD and get through rehab. Certainly one in the eye for old Osama.
