Lady Gaga Tells Vanity Fair About Her Cocaine Use

Lady Gaga Does Drugs Occasionally — Do You?

Drugs like cocaine, heroin, and marijuana are not only harmful to our bodies, but they're also illegal. Of course, that doesn't stop people from doing them. In a recent Vanity Fair interview for the September issue, Lady Gaga said she's "terrified of heroin," but was honest about her cocaine use.

"I won't lie; it's occasional. And when I say occasional, I mean maybe a couple of times a year."

The 24-year-old singer definitely doesn't condone drug use and says,

"I do not want my fans to ever emulate that or be that way. I don't want my fans to think they have to be that way to be great. It's in the past. It was a low point, and it led to disaster."

Gaga has had scary experiences with drug use, but I suppose in the celeb and rock star world, it's tough to break away from drugs completely. But using drugs isn't strictly for the rich and famous. Although it's not something people like to talk about openly, through this anonymous poll, I'm wondering . . .

I am not surprised at all that Lady Gaga is a drug user. I'm not surprised she admitted it in an interview. I agree with the person who said that she's probably doing ecstasy over coke because the high lasts longer. I see how Gaga is telling the kiddies to NOT do what she does. And her doing it doesn't mean that her young fans necessarily will. BUT. That's like having a single parent who ho's around and telling her 16 year old daughter to save her virginity and not give it up until she's married. Yeah right! If it's good enough for YOU, then why can't *I* do it, Gaga??? Why can't *I* do it a few times a year with friends??? Have I ever done drugs? I drink wine. I eat sugar. I may drink a soda every now and again. But all that other bull? No. My life isn't that jacked up that I need to snort anything through my nose or shoot through my veins to feel better. I can have fun with friends without being coked out of my mind. I like to remember what I did the night before, thank you.

I smoke pot every day but I don't do actual drugs any more. I'd encourage anyone who classifies marijuana in the same category of drugs as cocaine or heroin to watch a film called The Union. It's really amazing how many of the anti-marijuana facts and figures are completely invented. The media and government agencies are simply tricking us into buying pharmaceutical remedies for the hundreds of conditions that can be treated with weed, quite simply because pharmaceutical companies are unable to create anything as effective and harmless as marijuana.

I'm high on life so I defiantly don't need drugs at all. I actually consider weed a drug because even though you physically can't get addicted to it, you mentally can. I know people who have wrapped their entire lives around it as if it was crack and they constantly needed to be high. I hate drugs, and I will never use them (including chew/cigs).

Gaga does E.. not coke. I think that's the reason she does it only a few times a year You create the coke buzz, it's all in your head.. Only after a couple (and close to each other) uses you can create that buzz, which lasts for like 20 min. Btw extasy can buzz you for 24 hours. It's less addictive because of the awful side effects. I was addicted to speed/coke a while ago. I used coke to decrease the side effects of amphetamines (the nausea was baaaaaaaad) so I did'nt feel my body at all.

Aside from my evening cocktail, I don't do drugs. I've seen them ruin too many lives to think that they could possibly be productive.

Drugs are legal in Amsterdam and they have some of the lowest drug related crimes in the world. And I agree why are we so surprised that Gaga does drugs??? You've have to be stoned to try to wear some of her clothes. That said I do like her music.

I agree, bribella and runningesq. They have decriminalized marijuana in Massachusetts and we have yet to fall to Gomorrah-esq levels of debauchery and chaos. :) Is anybody really surprised that Lady Gaga has done drugs? Seriously is this some kind of big revelation for anybody?

Legalize pot and tax the crap out of it. At least Gaga was honest or so we think. I did dope when I was younger and led to me making some poor decisions that still haunt me 10 years later. I'll stick with my glass of wine.

Lucky for you, Anonymous 11:16, people are not forced to partake in drugs or alcohol. You make that personal choice and and it sounds like you are happy with it. I make the choices I make - to use alcohol and marijuana - and I am happy with it.

I agree, bribella. As a prosecutor, I see a lot of drug cases. Marijuana cases very very rarely involve anything other than finding the drug and arresting the defendant. There usually isn't any resisting/ disorderly conduct, etc. Alcohol seems to be a bigger problem. Alcohol is involved in many DV (domestic violence) cases, disorderly conducts, assaults, etc. DUIs, in my opinion, are a much bigger problem that a person smoking a couple joints. I don't smoke weed because it's not my thing, but I know people who smoke occassionally, and they lead productive normal lives. And as for Lady Gaga: there are very few people who do cocaine/ herion/ meth ocassionally. Most people develop a very strong addiction that usually only ends in death.
