Lady GaGa Talks Drugs - Again...
The singer still does them 'occasionally'
Pop sensation Lady GaGa has said in an interview that she used to take a lot of drugs when she started out making music (or performance art as she likes to call it).
She told Q Magazine: "Using drugs, I really figured out the art I wanted to make and was inspired. Some people find inspiration in dark places. I guess I'm one of them. What always made me different is that if I was doing drugs I was also making music. I wasn't just doing drugs.
"At the beginning I was doing performance art in handmade leather and leopard bikinis talking about oral sex and Andy Warhol and heavy metal. My mom was like, 'You've lost your mind.' I was doing drugs; I was really out of control. But I never got so far into it that I overdosed or anything."
GaGa claims that she no longer needs drugs, but won't rule out doing them on occasion.
"Once you open those doors they're open for ever. People who say they need drugs to be creative are full of s**t. I'm not some chick on the road getting high and f***ed up every night.
"I wake up, drink coffee and get on the phone to talk about the creative direction of the next video. I won't lie; it's occasional. And when I say occasional, I mean maybe a couple of times a year."
