Those words doesn't make sense - at all. It sounds like you think that if you got a record deal it's suddenly more okay to do drugs. But I'm quite sure that many bands did drugs before they got signed, as do many people who don't even have a band. Worth to add is that Baby Jane now is a signed band, I got that cd before they were signed. Secondly, do any of you guys know if Freddie takes drugs or not? If the answer is no I wouldn't say too much 'bout this picture. And third, do you guys know if this was meant as a promotion pic for him or the band? Or if it's just a picture taken for fun or for a photograph project of sum kind? I'm quite sure that everybody's answer is no on that question. And last of all I'm not sure 'bout what I think 'bout people who do statements 'bout "hurting yourself". Like drugs, cuttings and suicides. I don't think you have a clue 'bout that stuff like that if you haven't had those thought or been in that position. Of course there will always be people doing drugs 'cuz they wanna "add" something extra at partys and stuff like that, Or people who cut themselves once and never again just for the attention - but you gotta remember that there's always exceptions.
I don't think this picture is for an anti-drug campain, I think this picture is taken because someone consider it as "art". It's pretty often that people (at least in my town) take those types of pictures and there has been several photo contest here n' those who study "Estet - foto" (or whatever they call it) has recently had sum project were the 7 sins were the subject, and many of those pictures reminded me 'bout this. So I don't think that it is for an antidrug campain, I think it has to do with art. And since there's no logo, name or announcement of any form on this picture I wouldn't guess that this is a promotion picture (even though there are sum promo. pixx that doesn't really have those things).
