Dappy is grateful for drugs experience
Dappy tells Now Magazine that even though he's cleaned up his act now, he would have been "boring" if he hadn't have taken drugs at all.
"Of course I'm not (still taking drugs). I'm fresh and I'm clean. I've got two kids. But if I had none of that past, I'd find myself boring. What would I have to rap about?"
The N-Dubz frontman also reveals that he's now a one-woman man:
"I've made mistakes. I've cheated. All it does is make you look like a weak person, like you're desperate to get more women because you need more attention. If I just gave myself to everyone, I'd lose my mystique - you can't be available to f**k every Tom, Dick and Harry.
"I knew if I kept on going with these one-night flings, Kaye would leave me. It's so much stress to get her back, all for a cheap thrill. I haven't cheated for a whole year now."
