I don’t think anyone on planet earth would be shocked to learn that Lady GaGa does drugs. What else could explain the utter fuckery that comes from this woman at every turn? In fact, I’d be worried if she wasn’t doing drugs, because it would point to some serious mental illness and mean that she’d probably need to be institutionalized.
But while we may all wonder just what cocktail of Class A substances she’s partaking in, GaGa has insisted that her drug of choice is… weed. She claims MARIJUANA is behind her bullshit, and that she’s “addicted” to it (despite it not being an addictive substance, physiologically speaking) and has to have it because her career is filled with so much pressure and stress.
“I have been addicted to it and it’s ultimately related to anxiety coping and it’s a form of self-medication and I was smoking up to 15-20 marijuana cigarettes a day with no tobacco. I was living on a totally other psychedelic plane, numbing myself completely, and looking back I do see now that some of it had to do with my hip pain.
“I didn’t know where the pain was coming from so I was just in a lot of pain and very depressed all the time and not really sure why. I’ve been addicted to various things since I was young. Most heavily over the past seven years… But, the truth is that it is very hard to be famous.
“It’s wonderful to be famous because I have amazing fans. But it is very, very hard to go out into the world when you are not feeling happy and act like you are because I am a human being too and I break, and I think there is an assumption… that I cannot break because I am an alien woman and I am unstoppable.”
“I do put that pressure on myself; I have to be high to be creative. I need that, that’s an error in my life that happened for over 10 years. Can I be brilliant without it? I know that I can be and I have to be because I want to live, and I want my fans to want to live.”
Okay, I don’t even know what to say about this. You were so desperate – as you’ve admitted many times – to get famous that you clawed and fought for it many years, and now you’re complaining about how hard it is and blaming the fame you sought so desperately for your CHOICE to use drugs for self-medication? Go fuck yourself, lady. Also, “marijuana cigarettes”? I wasn’t aware it was 1962. Her pretentiousness is out of this world. Literally. Send her there and keep her.
