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.

Used to do drugs all the time, every day about 5 times a day but I have been clean for a very long time now and have NO intention of ever doing drugs AGAIN!

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.

If you count marijuana as a drug, I use about as often as I drink a glass of wine - a couple times a week. But I don't think of marijuana as a drug, or any worse for me, than the glass of wine. Wackdoodle - I think you've watched Reefer Madness a few too many times. Talk to your local law enforcement officials about what drugs they feel are the most harmful to our society, the people who see the consequences everyday, and I can guarantee that marijuana falls at the bottom of the list, even below alcohol.

Am I reading right that some fool is on here actually advocating the use of heroin, cocaine and marijuana as being safer and possibly better for you than alcohol? All those are addictive substances (yes pot is psychologically addictive while the others are psychologically and physically addictive). Nutbags. Seriously, when people say pot is natural and not harmful or its less harm than tobacco I wonder how far out of their right minds they are. That is same moronic argument as well a machete is less dangerous than a AK47. Really? When welded by a homicidal idiot or someone with ill-intentions both are equally as dangerous. Stating that marijuana is safe and not harmful is ignoring the danger that people under the influence and their poor judgments and bad actions have on those who do not use drugs. Yes, those not under the influence of pot behave badly etc but they can't fall back on "it was the drug" as an excuse. And just start reading court proceedings and see how often "defendant was using drugs" pops up as a pseudo excuse/reason for a wrong deed. As I my Blackfoot grandmother use to point out arsenic, strychnine, and cyanide are also all natural and in small doses non-lethal and in some cases non harmful. Heck Strychnine is used as a homeopathic medicine that shows actual benefits. Are you gonna go try some Strychnine now? It's less harmful than taking a hammer to your head.

I have smoked pot maybe three times before, but always in the Netherlands, where it's legal. I didn't have a whole lot, and it didn't really do much for me. Give me alcohol over that any day. People who smoke a lot of pot really get on my nerves most of the time when they're high, and I don't want to be that person. The main reason why I don't do drugs though is that I'm terrified I'll like it too much. Several people have told me that having sex on E is the greatest feeling in the world. That's why I do NOT want to try it.. that just sounds like it's going to suck afterwards every time you do it sober. I don't think anything about my life is so terrible that I need to get high to forget about it. The same probably goes for Lady Gaga's life, but that's her decision.
