New York: Crooning legend Tony Bennett has said that Lindsay Lohan and other artists addicted to drugs are "sinning against their talents."

Everybody has a gift, and these young stars should learn how to celebrate life, feel good about living, and do what they love. It will turn them around, and they won`t end up doing something that will kill them," the New York Post quoted him as saying at his and wife Susan Benedetto`s Exploring the Arts gala.

Bennett, 85, who dabbled with cocaine as a young man, also said, "Woody Allen`s manager, Jack Rollins, used to handle Lenny Bruce, who was a brilliant comedian, but was hooked on heroin. He said something that changed my life.

``He sinned against his talent.`` It affected me so much that I just got rid of everything," he added.
