Pop singer Justin Timberlake admires supermodel Kate Moss for coming out stronger after her stint with cocaine.
The singer empathised with the model because he remembered what it was like when the media reported that he smoked marijuana.
Moss was at the centre of a drug scandal last autumn (2005) after a British newspaper published images of the beauty allegedly snorting cocaine.
Timberlake claims people should do what is right for them and not try and impose their values on others.
"I remember the first time it was reported that I smoked pot. "I was like, 'Y'all don't?' That's why I sort of respect Kate Moss,” he was quoted by Contactmusic, as saying.
"I think you lose once you start trying to analyse what people like. "So I'm like, 'I hope you like how I live, but if you don't, you don't!'" he added.
