Altiyan Childs Talks About His Drug Use

The TV WEEK have finally asked the question on everyones lips about whether Altiyan Childs quirky ways are due to illicit drug use.

It appears that he is clean in this area as well as his sex life, whereas previously he revealed he was celibate for seven years. I have to admit I think the article is unclear about whether there was past drug use or is he just talking about his performances on The X Factor. You decide.

The articles states:

“I’m glad someone has finally asked me about drugs because I’ve been accused of taking them ever since I hit the stage,” he says. “I am the cleanest rocker I know. I have never been on stage under any influence and I am very clean and straight in my private life, too. I don’t do drugs – I didn’t even have my first drink until I was 19. I’m anti-drugs; I’m anti- anything that is addictive and brings you down.”

That said, Altiyan 35, admits he finds the constant chatter that he is on drugs “flattering”.

“Most people take drugs to lose their inhibitions, whereas I don’t need them to do that,” he explains. “I have something naturally that most people look for in drugs and I am so grateful that God gave me this electrifying feeling when songs come on and make me comfortable in myself.”

As for the talk that his quirky antics are a publicity stunt, Altiyan insists he doesn’t “know how to manipulate” people.

“I think lies are the greatest poison the world has ever known,” he says.

No sex, no drugs, no wonder there aint not rock’n’roll happening.
This guy’s a dud pop-music wannabee pretending to be a rocker. Acting insane and delusional makes you…insane and delusional, not a rock’n’roller.

Oh please!

Something seems askew with his brain chemistry, self-inflicted or otherwise.

Explains why he hasn’t got the cash to buy some shampoo.

[…] stunt from Altiyan does nothing to put rumours to rest. (See Blog post here where Altiyan talks about his drug use). But seriously this guy needs to hook up with someone soon he looks like he is about to […]

I can totally relate to Altiyan on this. I have never been drunk, done drugs or smoked cigarettes which is more the exception than the rule. Like Altiyan, I’ve never needed to. And yet, people would look at us strangely because we don’t need artificial supplements to make us confident and self assured.

I don’t agree that you need to take drugs or be a sex addict to be a successful rockstar and people should look beyond the stereotype. I think those who are on drugs are more likely to be frauds and less true to themselves. Glad to see Altiyan standing up for what he believes in. He seems to have had a good upbringing and very supportive parents like myself.

Right, because going to a fricken cave in a well known spot for junkies to buy and use heroin is totally normal right?
He does know that Methadone is a drug too right?
He may not be using anymore, but he has smack written all over his leathery face. Yuck.

8 unknown { 11.10.10 at 9:16 am }

this is all a bunch of you know what!
i actually know him in real life and we use to hit it almost every week end.
But since he started xfactor he was too good for his friends and palmed them off, maybe it was the drugs talking! he is such a smooth talker but in reality he is a bloody douche!
that is all

Thanks for this article – I like to read about Altiyan & what he has to say – in fact, I find him more interesting to read, listen to and watch than any other ‘celebrity’ or TV personality. I don’t know who this ‘unknown’ user is, but if there is any merit in what you have to say, why haven’t we heard about it on the TV yet? Why haven’t you gone to them & instead posted a defamatory post here? Why don’t you prove it?

10 Reality Raver { 11.12.10 at 11:33 am }

Unknown if you do know him in real life, do you have any idea who the mythical ex-girlfriend is?

11 mick { 11.16.10 at 7:26 pm }

unknown, You sound like a real loser. You sound jealous, how about giving him some credit rather than bagging him. With mates like you, i don’t blame him fo ignoring you!

12 susie { 11.17.10 at 8:14 pm }

Unknown…just go away…get a life…leave

13 rocky star { 11.21.10 at 7:09 pm }

OMG this blog is so funny.
Why does everyone associate Altiyan with drugs because he is ‘high’ on stage? What is everyones problem? Jealous, cause what, when you hit the stage you clam up and cant sing, cant dance cant do nothing?

14 Sanja { 11.22.10 at 3:52 pm }

I’m never drink too. I’m very glad when you stop using drugs.

15 rocky star { 11.22.10 at 3:58 pm }

For crying out loud people – he is not on drugs….hes clean as!

If Altiyan is bothering to read this – best of luck for the future. Ignore the negative comments – stay strong, live your life as it suits you to live it (not how others think you should), stay true to yourself and your own beliefs. The right woman will come along sometime. Come to New Zealand – we are excellent people :) Under no circumstances join INXS – those bitter egomaniacs, desperate to make money would destroy your gentleness.

18 TheLilynz { 11.30.10 at 10:01 pm }

Get a life unknown. Wish you’d stayed mates with him now do you? I bet you do – you would have been one of the knockers “back then”.
Don’t be envious – it’s a wasted emotion – be happy for the person you say you knew and wish him well – he might send you a Christmas card then.

19 adora1ification { 12.14.10 at 4:23 am }

I love Altiyan, what ever his past is. I believe he is such a gentle and humble person that he deserve the win. By the way Australia has spoken, he’s got the talent and the look/charisma and good upbringing what else you need. To those who are bombarding him with negative comment… get a life , maybe you are just jealous because he “wow” the Australian public and he’s worth it. he shines like a true star. A wonderful/charismatic /talented performer. Good on him. May God bless him along the way as I believe he deserve it.

20 lina { 12.22.10 at 6:42 pm }

FUCK YOU Unknown… i love you Altiyan

21 Lolligirl { 01.18.11 at 2:44 pm }

Altiyan you made my 7 year cry at your concert he will always remember your caring nature when you took the time to acknowledge him whilst you were performing beautiful day at revesby workers. Wow he has a long way to fall if he thinks the rest have the stage presence and sincerity of you. Totally loved your show it felt so personal and you looked so much hotter in real life.wow!

30 Marion { 06.14.11 at 8:18 pm }

Hey anonymous….I need some info…how do I contact you?
I also need to speak to someone whose daughter was admired……mine was

31 tracey { 06.14.11 at 9:35 pm }

I think there is more to Altiyan Childs than meets the eye…I dont believe for a second that he is as pure and inncoent as he and his followers make out. The man has “cult” like fanbase and from what I hear will nearly kill you for speaking against their “God”. The fanbase states 49000 fans , but only 300 marked as attending his new tour ???I met him in Melbourne and it seemed to me he preys on a sympathy card every time and uses his “sick father” as an excuse for a bad performance. As for the rumours re TT interview…I think it was the downward spiral to the end of his career….something definately not right…gut instinct. I hope the truth with the whole story is laid on the table and am suspecting there will be a new type of Tsunami…lol

32 marion { 06.14.11 at 9:58 pm }

I think it’s fair to say it’s become obvious he has something big to hide

33 Marion { 06.15.11 at 8:49 am }

Us Aussies like honesty……..um?

34 Marion { 06.15.11 at 1:49 pm }

well, well, if his dad can behave in this manner under a fake profile………and I know it is him and can proove it……….he sent this to me…no wonder his son is screwed up

Greed Is Good!

One of the great speeches in movie history
has to go to Gordon Gekko from Wall Street.

How can I say this in a better way than to
use his words?

Here goes……

Greed is good.

Greed is right.

Greed works.

People very much enjoy getting kicked while
they are down.

Certain haters in certain Facebook pages whom
prefer to make life tough for themselves.

Greed does work in this case because these
people very much enjoy slipping on their
behind’s all the time.

Greed in abundance!

Greed does work here because these so called
haters keep on asking for more slipping on
their behinds.

So called haters on their facebook secret pages
don’t understand that other people can be just
as greedy with a click a press of a finger.

Not just one finger. Everyone’s finger’s!

Not only greedy with their fingers.

But the huge amount of greed by everyone in the
plenty of watching behinds falling flat on the
ground.

All the time!

Wow wee who ever thought Gordon Gekko would be
right???

But wait there’s still more!

What is it with these smear campaign’s?

The only thing smear campaign’s do is feed the
greed to the public in seeing people slip on their
behind’s.

The more greed on both sides!

By the haters in giving a good serving of acting
the fools.

And by the public by sitting there with a box of
popcorn watching on!

People may remember my master very well. From
such movies as facebook secret groups.

But this written piece is from such a movie I am
from.

Master Pain From Kung Pow: Enter The Fist!

Master Pain would like to say these words…..

“Haters have been called “bad” before. Many have said haters do
things… that are not correct to do. Your mouth tricks will not
work on me, ventriloquists! What do you get when you cross the
haters with a sack of bullshit??? MY ASS….. NYAAA NYAAA!!!”

You may remember my long lost cousin from many films that are
not as boring as you!

give it up Altiyan and come clean. You are lying through your teeth- enough crying now!! Thought your dad inspired you back into music, what bullshit, you were gigging around before x factor..you don’t drink or do drugs, but now suddenly have a “couple of times”..if you want to gain some respect, come out and tell the world who you really are, no one is going to care, they will admire your honesty much more than your cover up bullshit stories now. Sorry Buddy but your 50 fans can’t get you out of this one, neither can a certain member of your family faking profiles and making threats! If there was nothing to “protect” i.e. scandals, then he wouldn’t be so hell bent in bullying people into submission. Shame on you, your family and the few one eyed idiots who can’t see past their nose. It was ok for you to go on TT to slander but it’s not ok for the other side to speak out? How does that logic work? GO BACK TO YOUR REAL JOB AND BUY SOME TISSUES……GIVE NIKKI HER LIFE BACK, SHE IS YOUNG AND INNOCENT YOU DIRTY DOG
