Lady GaGa Smokes Marijuana When Writing Songs

Monday, February 14, 2011

Lady GaGaLADY GaGa smokes marijuana when she is writing new songs.

The eccentric pop star doesn’t see the point in “sugar coating” her lifestyle or behavior and pretend she doesn’t use drugs because then she wouldn’t be true to herself.

“I still smoke a lot of pot when I write music,” she said. “So I’m not gonna, like, sugar coat it for 60 Minutes that I’m some, like, sober human being, ’cause I’m not.”

Despite admitting her own cannabis use, the 24-year-old singer — who took home three prizes at the Grammy Awards last night and arrived at the ceremony in a giant egg which she later ‘hatched’ out of live on stage — doesn’t want her younger fans to experiment with illegal substances just because she has.

“I don’t want to encourage kids to do drugs. But when you asked me about the sociology of fame and what artists do wrong — what artists do wrong is they lie,” she said. “And I don’t lie. I’m not a liar. I built good will with my fans. They know who I am. And I’m just like them in so many ways.”

GaGa — real name Stefani Germanotta — has been open about her dug use in the past, and last year admitted she started taking a lot of cocaine after dropping out of a music course at New York University in 2005.

But the Born This Way singer insisted the drug had a positive effect on her music even if it had a negative effect on her lifestyle.

“[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,” she has said.

“What always made me different is that if I was doing drugs I was also making music. I wasn’t just doing drugs.”

    This is just dangerous. Young people shouldn’t be looking up to someone who thinks drugs are a good way to do ‘art’.

    I also am inspired when I am smoking pot. My paintings are much more beautiful (even after I’m NOT stoned. ) My paintings that get the most positive comments from others are those in which I was “inspired.” Alrighty then!

    I love, love, love Gaga! She has such a wonderful and big heart. She loves her career and her “Little Monsters”. She is always there and stands up for them. I do not like the fact the she smokes pot. I know that a lot of kids look up to her but if she can make them understand it’s not good for them to do it. But that is like saying, “Do as I say not as I do.” I know that many of them will think “if Lady Gaga does it, then it can’t be all that bad.” I love that she is not does not lie and is always honest with her fans. She is also a big inspiration to others. She wants them to be their own person. I still think she is great.

    Marijuana. I believe Len Richmond and Collin Ozcan have done it here. Well Done!
    Respects!” – BRIAN MAY OF QUEEN. “An important new musical about the medical and
    social world of weed. Big Pharma watch out. Big Ganja is coming and it cures!”

    this musical comedy that follows a pair of pot-loving aliens who introduce the
    plant to planet Earth 60 million years ago, and continually return to encourage
    its use among artists and musicians. After revealing the creative powers of the
    mystical plant to Parisian artists of the 19th Century and New Orleans jazz
    musicians of the 1930′s, the bleary-eyed interplanetary visitors stage a narrow
    escape from a DEA raid on a popular medical marijuana dispensary, and take a
    lucky handful of humans back to their home world of “Planet Cannabis”, where
    hemp is used for every purpose under the sun, war is obsolete, and the
    environment is completely free of pollutants.” ~ Jason Buchanan,
