Lady Gaga talks drug use and troubles on her rise to the top

by Martin


Lady Gaga is back. We seen her perform her new single at the MTV VMAs and then the star took to the Roundhouse in London to headline the first night of the  iTunes Festival.

Since her return to the public eye Lady Gaga has had several interviews about her surgery, her recovery and about her album but one interview recently seen the star talk about drug use and her fans.

In an interview with ‘Watch What Happens Live’ the ‘Pokerface’ star spoke about the use of drugs and warned her fans against using them because nowadays they’re such a big part of pop culture.

Lady Gaga discussed her own experiences with taking various illegal substances and how she would never encourage anyone including her Little Monsters to take them despite references to them in recent songs: “I think maybe it’s hard to remember (the last time I took Ecstasy). I have done it… like in my raver days. I spent a lot of time at Bonnaroo and going to a lot of festivals.”


She went on to say: “I definitely wouldn’t encourage it because it can be dangerous, especially if you don’t know where you are getting it from. So I would use this opportunity to tell you to be careful with Molly. If you get to know Molly too well you might turn out like me.”

Lady Gaga also spoke with ELLE magazine about troubles she faced on her way to the top:

“Everyone is so cynical — that I can’t purely love my fans, or share an honest story about my past, without someone asking me if I really, truly struggled.

“Do you know how much dirt I ate? Do you know the men I had to crawl through, the people that disrespected my body, my mind, my heart?”


Lady Gaga also spoke about the difference between her true self and her stage persona: “I am — Stefani is — a perpetually tortured artist,” Gaga explains. “That’s why I changed my name. I can’t be her in public. She would be a mess!”
