Lady Gaga seems in total control of both her musical career and carousel of shocking outfits.
Turns out the singer turns to various substances to numb her emotional pain, particularly marijuana.
The singer, 27, said that she smoked marijuana to deal with the mental and physical challenges of her career, including a recent hip injury that forced her to cancel a large portion of her Born This Way tour.
“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,” she said on Elvis Duran and The Z100 Morning Show.
Gaga told the interviewer that while she enjoys her fans, the pressures related to fame leave her scrambling for comfort.
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.
