Johnny Depp has given old flame Kate Moss a mirror to celebrate completing her stint in rehab after her very public cocaine snortathon. Mirrors, of course, are the ideal surface for chopping, arranging, and inhaling coke. So the gift seems a bit droll. But Depp says it’s Cherokee symbolism for facing yourself without fear. But Moss is going to have enough trouble facing herself without blow. (Wasn’t Depp in Blow?) At the clinic, she discovered writing poetry helps. In fact, she now puts all her thoughts into verse and then reads them to her current boyfriend, Pete Doherty, over the phone. Which must be so rewarding. A friend of hers has said that Moss finds it “very calming.” We can only hope she puts those poems in a book.
