Lady Gaga recently revealed that she occasionally smoked weed to help her forget about all the trials and tribulations associated with fame and success.
Living under the microscope can definitely take its toll on people. Even those who seem to thrive in the spotlight have moments when they want to blend in with the crowd. Lady Gaga reportedly smoked a little marijuana to help her forget about the media circus that surrounds just about everything she does these days.
During a recent chat with the folks at Female First, Mother Monster revealed her history with marijuana. Although Gaga said she doesn’t really toke up anymore, she apparently used recreational drugs to help her feel young and anonymous.
“The thing that I really fell in love with about it is that I completely forget that I am famous just totally forget about it, and I just take a puff and I am me when I was 17 again and there is something quite creative and liberating about it,” Lady Gaga told the website.
The controversial singer added, “I want to live and I want my fans to live. I don’t want them to torture themselves in the way I have.”
According to E! Online, this revelation isn’t exactly news to Lady Gaga fans. The website points out that the singer addressed her drug habit during an interview not too long ago. Although she’s apparently turned her back on the wacky world of weed, Gaga used to enjoy a little herb from time to time.
Lady Gaga told Attitude magazine:
“I was just numbing, numbing, numbing myself then sleeping it off, then getting on stage, killing it in pain, then getting off and smoking, smoking, smoking, not knowing what the pain was. F*** if I know what hurts the most, you know? I would break the habit and it would sneak back in and I would break it and sneak back in.”
To help her kick the habit, the singer turned to friend and performance artist Marina Abramovic for a little help. After getting cut off from the world for several days, Lady Gaga emerged with a healthier attitude. At the time, Mother Monster said she still smoked a little marijuana for fun but not to help cope with her daily life.
