Damon Albarn Clarifies His Comments About Heroin Use
Damon Albarn has clarified recent comments he made about using heroin, NME reports.

As reported earlier this month, Albarn revealed that he found the illegal drug to be "very creative," having taken the substance during his relationship with Elastica's Justine Frischmann.

Speaking about the comments in a new interview with Time Out, Albarn elaborates and clarifies what he meant, saying that he does not regret opening up about his drug use. "I don't totally see it as a mistake. That's the point. It was part of me growing up. Look, I didn't go out and look for it," he says.

"I turned up at my house and there it was, made on the table. What should I have done? Leave my life and reject it or stay in my own house with my girlfriend and somehow assimilate it into my life?"

Albarn recently spoke to NME, dispelling rumours that Blur have played their final shows, saying they would be "mad" to never perform together again.

As previously reported, elsewhere in the interview Albarn revealed that him making an album with Noel Gallagher is a "distinct possibility" in future while also stating that he could release a new Gorillaz album "next week."

Damon Albarn will release his debut solo album "Everyday Robots" on April 28.
