Lady GaGa: “I Still Use Cocaine”

Published: Tuesday 3rd Aug 2010 by Sam

In what looks to be the first major controversy Lady GaGa has found herself in, the 24 year old superstar has admitted to Vanity Fair magazine that she uses Cocaine. This, despite, her much publicised battle with drug addiction – and eventual overcoming of it.

Full story below…

The ‘Bad Romance’ singer was sure to underscore the fact that she is “terrified of Heroin”, yet “mostly” does Cocaine.

Speaking of her use of the Class A drug, she said: “I won’t lie; it’s occasional. And when I say occasional, I mean maybe a couple of times a year.”

Perhaps realising the potential backlash her comments could incite, GaGa added:

“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.

I was completely mental and had just been through so much. I hit rock bottom, and it was enough to send a person over the edge. My mother knew the truth about that day, and she screamed so loud on the other end of the phone, I’ll never forget it.

It was actually my Grandmother who I credit for saving me one day. I cried. I told her I thought my life was over and I have no hope and I’ve worked so hard, and I knew I was good. What would I do now? And she said, ‘I’m gonna let you cry for a few more hours. And then after those few hours are up, you’re gonna stop crying, you’re gonna pick yourself up, you’re gonna go back to New York, and you’re gonna kick some a**.'”

Sigh. It was all going so well…and now this. Granted GaGa has always been a  risqué type of artist, this is what is called taking it too far. As many a Hollywood scenario has shown, drugs in any capacity are a no-no. Yes, the reality is that many take such substances (and I’m sure GaGa will garner praise from a select few for her honesty); however, when you stand as one of the world’s biggest superstars, it is inevitable that you will command a young and very impressionable fan-base. Hence her “do as I say, not as I do” advice is worthless IMO.

Not impressed. But then again, I guess this “humanizes” her. Oh well..

Your thoughts?

    OMG GaGa.. gurl, please stop! This has upset me! you have incredible talent and you still use this s***?!
    Someone needs to knock some sense into her!!!!!!

    I don’t want her going down the Amy Winehouse route!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. True Blue August 3, 2010

    I certainly don’t hold it against her at all for doing drugs in the past. We’re all young and dumb at some point. But the whole point of making mistakes is to learn from them. Apparently Gaga hasn’t learned if she’s still using. There’s no excusing that.

  3. Bugsy August 3, 2010

    Of course she uses drugs. It’s kinda obvious.

  4. royalkev August 3, 2010

    Wow… Only Gaga can get away with this bs! If she murdered someone, it would just be a little murder! If she molested someone, it would just be that no biggie! …She’s just using a few drugs! When does it stop?! I can’t wait for this girl to go away. She is very wrong and unhealthy for young people and impressionable adults!

  5. gfssd August 3, 2010

    and the temporary gimmick that was lady gaga has come to an end, its time for britney to reclaim her throne

  6. black August 3, 2010

    UMMM What the f*** gaga, the stans will make an excuse out of it though

  7. Gaz@NokiaMusic August 3, 2010

    That was a bit silly of her wasn’t it!?… Sure, honesty is great, but when you’re that big and influential the lynch mob always want the authorities to make an example of you.

  8. Crack is wack August 3, 2010

    And since she is so very talented ( according to TGJ) why should we care??? AT least she can sing right ? NOT!!!!! Cant believe the white priviliedge that she is afforded!!!

  9. ADE August 3, 2010

    stupid b****

  10. “Dj Y2k Malone” August 3, 2010

    maybe she was high at the time of doing the interview to admit this….LMAO

  11. Yellow Gorilah August 3, 2010

    Ohhh Hell NO!

    People use drugs, get over it….its having a drug problem people should be worried about/avoid.

    And @lovelarah is the first to make an excuse for this…. **sigh**

  17. Aryo August 3, 2010

    Whats wrong with all these celebs???
    whoever gets into fame starts taking drugs and i think it sux

  18. TheBaddestBitch August 3, 2010

    She’s a mess.

  19. plinko August 3, 2010
  20. @mixedominicana August 3, 2010

    Only addicts say it’s “occasional”…smh she probably does it more often than usual…”a couple times a year” …umm last time I checked, drug users (scratch that) cocaine users do not just do that ish a couple times a year…even so THERE ARE 365 days a year…not to mention the number of “times” per day of usage…OR does she just snort on holidays? how about birthdays? before some shows? after shows? at parties? after the grammy’s? sister’s graduation day?…I could list many different “occasions” and/or “times”…BUT to be conclusive, I’m very disappointed in her. #tisall.

    Follow @mixedominicana =] Love ya

  21. That FLOP Juice August 3, 2010

    SHe is finally over.


  22. kevin August 3, 2010

    whatever that she uses coke, it just pisses me off that she says “I do it, but I dont want you to do it.”

  23. The AlexanderTG August 3, 2010

    Yes she’s still on them now and then – mostly E (MDMA) though rather than coke – and just occasional use – she’s probably got quite an addictive personality – but as far as I can tell all the touring, writing etc etc have taken the place drugs used to have in her life + lets not get hypocritcal here – who here doesn’t take something or other occasionally – I’ll openly admit I smoke the odd joint and take E. Don’t understand all the amazement / disappointment at this – she’s said she was still doing occasional drugs in several interviews. She is after all just a girl same age as me, not Saint Gaga – people just expect too much – why should fame mean that suddenly you’re immune to temptation? I’ve got no idea what the drug laws are like in the State she lives in, but I can’t imagine saying what she’s done will get her in much trouble with the authorities.

  24. GangsterA August 3, 2010


  25. YoU Hear Me August 3, 2010


    who here doesn’t take something or other occasionally
    I’ll openly admit I smoke the odd joint and take E. Don’t understand all the amazement / disappointment at this – she’s said she was still doing occasional drugs in several interviews. She is after all just a girl same age as me, not Saint Gaga


    So in other words it’s no big deal, that someone as famous as Gaga can come out and admit to taking drugs, as everyone does it and she only does it occasional and because she is no Saint?

    Maybe you think everyone tries out things such as drugs, occasional or once in their life but I certainly don’t and I am only one year younger then Lady Gaga.

    Taking drugs is not a sensible thing and sends out the wrong message, It’s one thing claiming that you use to take drugs and overcame the habit and no longer take it but to come out and say your still on drugs, like it’s not that serious in an interview that you know many of your fans who admire and look up to you will read, is just wrong.

    I do drugs but you shouldn’t, is not exactly the way to go, I don’t think all Gaga fans will be stupid enough to copy Gaga but with this whole Celebrity worship thing, some stupid fans will.
    I’m not amused with Lady Gaga right now, fact anyone who takes drugs and not amused by and it shouldn’t be Glamorized like a cool thing.

  26. GangsterA August 3, 2010


  27. unionstation August 3, 2010

    now all of her little monster are going to want to try coke, because after all they wants to be like gaga. gaga some things are best left in the closet in the dark, no matter if you are bigger than life artist in the music industry.

  28. Tiff August 3, 2010

    It’s sad that she is doing drug that may kill her one day but the bish is bold as heck for admitting this. I mean don’t act like she is the only pop starlet that does coke. Most of ya fav’s do.

  29. Nothing But My Opinion August 3, 2010

    I agree with you @Tiff

  30. FreshUrbanEnt August 3, 2010



  31. TRANNY FLOP C-ERROR August 3, 2010

    Disgusting. And so hypocritical. She constantly uses the gay community and act she like she really cares about them and I just DON’T buy it. Still on cocaine? Really Gaga? Not surprised, just shocked that she’d try to make this a light matter, when thousands of people die from this everyday. So here come the excuses and Sam I bet if this was Rihanna/Beyonce you would’ve torn them a new asshole.

    I find it rather amusing that white artists get more respect on black blogs than black artists. Things that make you go hmmmmmmm

  32. MaZ August 3, 2010

    It’s just a start….People will see a true self step by step.

  33. alex August 3, 2010

    like thats a f***** surprise! we all knew! have u seen her in interviews….her erratic performances, the way she speaks and in her Bad roance song at then end she sounds like her nose is clogged up.

    i know what cokeheads are like…their definately a lil crazy, no wonder why she lost so uch weight. But shes a grown woman, so thats her nose and her business.

  34. Traffic August 3, 2010

    very pathetic

  35. KNUCK August 3, 2010

    lol.. most of the people that will excuse her for this actually do drugs themselves.. So obviously you feel there is nothing wrong with it or you wouldn’t be doing it. IDIOTS.

    I even have a problem with people who smoke weed all the time. It’s a damn drug. why are you so damn stressed and PRESSED that you need to get *high* and ease your troubles away along with half of your conciousness. The rest of us non drug users have to DEAL.

  36. DizzyGuy1985 August 3, 2010

    I’m sorry call me crazy but I’ve never done any cocaine or blow. That is just crazy. What does being young have to do with anything. Thats just dumb.

  37. Mel J August 3, 2010

    she’ll get through this phase of her life. you live, you learn, thats life..

  38. badd August 3, 2010

    I’m with Tiff.
    I lovee GaGa & will forever support her.
    But this isn’t cool.
    But at the same time this is her life & we
    should let her live it.

  39. badd August 3, 2010

    & Sam.:
    There’s actually more to this interview
    than just this !!!!

  40. SunDee August 3, 2010

    no wonder she sound kinda stoned in few interview
    she must be stressed out of the hectic TMF era…
    She was look way healthier at her debut time.

  41. badd August 3, 2010

    ^^Tha’ts true.
    I wondered about that too.

  42. Ehh August 3, 2010

    Lady gaga is also socially retarded and has no likability, it is all just propaganda and people actually think she is a talanted singer, which is ridiculous

  43. spring August 3, 2010

    and my lunch break gets even more interesting!!!

    I CAN’T!!
    next please!!

  44. piat August 3, 2010

    Her sharing this will not change a damn thing in her career. Cocaine is the new weed…it’s not viewed to be so harsh of an illicit drug as heroin. From what I hear…cocaine and access to it is everywhere in the music industry. I hope for her own psychological sake, she will rid herself of any usage of the drug because the effects will be felt later on in life when those really important brain cells have died off.

  45. Soulful Roses August 3, 2010

    This is not cool at all. Does she know how much of an influence she has on people all over the world? Some being little children, that go to grade school every single day. Now they’re going to believe its cool to do drugs now, because Lady Gaga is doing it. So disappointed right now…

  46. WHITEJESUS August 3, 2010

    how is this news i thought it was quite evident with her tilting over in most of her concerts while her dancers move on with the show not even checking cus they know whats up.

  47. The Last Song August 3, 2010

    She’ll later come out and say she was just joking, I KNOW IT!!!!!!

  48. The AlexanderTG August 3, 2010

    “It’s one thing claiming that you use to take drugs and overcame the habit and no longer take it but to come out and say your still on drugs”
    So you would prefer it if she just shut up and lied about it rather than being honest? Plus is this like a two srikes and you’re out thing? – I mean if you overcome something in your life once you’re to be commended, but if you relapse you’re to be condemned?
    Now there’s drugs and drugs to be honest – in my opinion alchohol is a worse drug than E, but just cause its legal loads of ordinary everyday people drink it.
    As far as telling people not to do something that you’re doing – in this case I don’t see what the problem is – you’ve got someone saying coke f*cked up my life and nearly killed me and even now I’m drawn back to taking it again so you shouldn’t get started down the same path I did.
    Now as far as being stoned all the time – no, I don’t believe she is, but there are residual effects to taking coke in the amounts she was doing for so long – to me that’s the key difference here – if she’s doing the odd line at parties with other people around just occasionally then she’s probably got it under control. If she’s snorting bagfuls of the stuff in hotel rooms like she used to then she’s going to need some serious help

  49. badd August 3, 2010

    At least she admits to doing it.
    Because most stars do.
    Because it’s not that big of a deal anymore.
    But you guys cut bits & pieces of this
    interview out ! Where did you get
    this from. I just read it.
    The second part wasn’t even in response
    to what she about using coke occasionally.
    It was in response to her doing it in her past.
    You guys didn’t even post the whole fuqing section
    of this interview. This seems like
    some shyt you guys re-wrote.

  50. HATING IS A TERRIBLE THING August 3, 2010

    so typical of sam and trent to throw shade at people for the most ridiculous things, but this chick does something illegal and they brush it off. i like lady gaga, but be fair go in on her like her like u do everybody else. i love this blog becuase its pure comedy and no sane person takes u all seriously.

  51. HaYYYYYY August 3, 2010

    i cant believe sam didnt say anything other than “sigh”
    youl go in on rihanna for not singing perfectly but she does something illegal and way worse than rihanna and you barely even say anything
    but on lady gaga, shes shouldnt have admitted that
    yes its occasional and most people at least occasionaly do drugs, but shes huge now and shouldnt have said this
    hopefully she stops tho

  52. NICKY August 3, 2010



    A DIRTY D***


  53. boo hoo hoo August 3, 2010

    these double standards when it comes to white artists are so ridiculous. If this was Rihanna or any other black artist, they would be chewed up and spit out for daring to drink not to talk about doing coke. SMH We down rihanna and support this druggie.

  54. badd August 3, 2010

    Lady GaGa nominated for 13 VMA’s !
    Go GaGa.

  55. ~TeAM WeeZY~ August 3, 2010

    Wow! I’m no Gaga stan, however, with her VERY hectic schedule and former use, it is no surprise as to why she does coke. If you noticed how she looked when she first came out until now, you could see a MAJOR difference in her appearance, especially as far as weight. I’m not making an excuse nor am I saying it’s okay or supporting this ish. She needs help and I’m sure she’s gonna get it after making it public.

  56. mena August 3, 2010

    okay she does drugs? am i surprised? not at all… do i believe she uses occasionally? nope no way!! but u know what? that’s her business an her life an she chose to share such personal information an i will not judge this chick based off that its a shame that she does drugs an 9 x out of 10 it will probably be her down fall but i still love her to people that say what about young people that look up to her…..well young people should not be looking up to celebrities!!! period!! i like gaga but i damn sure don’t idolize or look up to her!! just because shes famous it does not make her perfect in no way shape or form an allot of people fell to realize that about celebrities! an believe me shes not the only singer that does dope or any other drug.

  57. C-mo August 3, 2010

    GaGa is human. No, people should not resort to drugs as an escape in this tough world. But lets send her positive energy and prayers that she can overcome this. No one is perfect. No one. Homegirl had no reason to be tell this secret. She is at the top of the game right now. She is reaching out for help. Send her positive thoughts. Lets stop the negativity. I’m not even a huge GaGa fan. But I can appreciate the honesty and humility that comes with revealing something like this. Especially when you know that the world will turn on you for your “faults”. She is human yall. We all have our faults and all fall short! But the key to helping someone is always love. Kelly Rowland and Beyonce have both said “there is room for us all.” So don’t feed off the fact that someone is fighting “monsters” in their life. Send her love. Send her love!

  58. badd August 3, 2010

    ^^ I agree ! 🙂

  59. Lady Gaga’s Invisble Twin Marty August 3, 2010

    I knew this b**** was on drugs. No surprise.

    She should’ve kept that to herself. Lol @ all these people defending her saying “But everyone in the industry does it.” Yeah, so that makes it okay? If any black artist was to say this, Sam and Trent would have a field day, but since its Lady Gaga, its cool.

    Then they wonder why nobody takes them seriously.

  60. The AlexanderTG August 3, 2010

    @Lady Gaga’s Invisble Twin Marty
    I’m not defending her as I don’t see that she needs any defence – what she does is only effecting her, nobody else – its not like she’s married with kids to be responsible for. It might be a crime in most places, but its not like she’s mugging grannies to pay for her habit.
    ‘“But everyone in the industry does it.” – maybe not everybody, but if you have even the slightest part of you that is going to be tempted then its not the best business to be in – I admitted earlier that I did take stuff now and then – now I work for a record company as well as some work for a few bands – and I have never bought or asked for any drugs in my life – do you get what I’m meaning?

  61. SnijanaFleur August 3, 2010

    It’s her body. What Lady GaGa puts in it or on it…is her choice . Strangely, her decision to share this with the world doesn’t evoke any particular emotion out of me.

    When it comes to public reaction, I agree the double standards between Black and white artist almost always suck :-).

  62. mena August 3, 2010

    lol stop comparing lady gaga to other artist lady gaga said she uses drugs not beyonce or Rhianna!! cut the the b******* ,of course drugs are f***** up!! is she supposed to be despised cause she does them? c’mon get real Mary j did drugs an Whitney dam sure did drugs too! but you know what I’m still fan of there music an i still support them. what they do in there personal life is there business i just love there music its a shame that a person would have to resort to narcotics to hide there troubles but that’s just the way the cookie crumbles for some people!! what these celebrities eat don’t make me s***!!! as long as gaga continue to create good music then I’m gonna be a fan if she starts makeing garbage music then i wont be a be a fan i like her for her music not what she does in her personal life.

  63. LADY GAGA RULES August 3, 2010


  64. The AlexanderTG August 3, 2010

    I don’t think the reaction of people has anything to do with race – more just how they feel about the person in question – like if you hear that someone who has a very clean image is on drugs – then there’s shock, but Gaga is a different artist to that – she’s a self admitted user whose whole style is edgier – its like Courtney Love – nobody was shocked she was doing stuff, but if you all found out that Bieber kid was on coke there’d be a huge reaction.

  65. Tony August 3, 2010

    Lady Gaga another drama queen canidate for rehab ! what a waste of space , she has no sence of reality especially with herself or immigrantion issues.

  66. remmy August 3, 2010

    My thing is fine go kill yourself slowly gaga…don’t put it out there like this…there are fans of hers that are dumb (and or young) to try it cuz gaga does it…and just cuz she can control her habbit (IF I believe that) doesn’t mean that on the first try they may ruin there life…

  67. piat August 3, 2010

    Now the @Lady Gaga Rules person is stupid to worship the ground she works on….all these celebrities are just people and nobody should be worshipped as a mini-god. If Lady Gaga all of a sudden stopped making music, would you commit suicide? No human being is infallible. You can respect someone’s music but still willing to admit when they make a poor choice.

  68. Darren August 3, 2010

    is anyone really surprised that this disgusting garbage can b**** does coke and ecstasy? she was quoted before saying: “…A little x never killed anyone…”

  69. Roab August 3, 2010

    So jealous my supplier got busted! Damn!

  70. Pucci August 3, 2010

    WOW, though i’m not surprised, this does make me worry for her. Like Sam said, drugs in any capacity are a BIG no no… I hope she realizes that she needs to stop & gets herself some help.

    I think its mighty odd that you talk about ppl liking Gaga & arent you usually calling her fans gay????, yet this is about the 5th post i’ve seen you on about her. Hmm, one must wonder are you a closet homosexual, a closet fan or both… You pick!!!

  71. Pucci August 3, 2010

    Wow, it amazes me how immature the Rihanna stans are… They’ll defend her & downgrade anybody else in a second & think its okay just because someone else does it. Its sad, & they dont realize that ppl garner more hate for Rihanna because of them.


    BRITNEY… Really??? I think she needs to do some searching as well & admit that she’s still doing drugs.

  72. True Blue August 3, 2010

    “What she does is only effecting her, nobody else – its not like she’s married with kids to be responsible for.”

    So if she overdoses and dies, it won’t affect her family, friends and fans who love her? It won’t affect the fact that she will never make music again, and therefore we will never know her potential? I’m sorry, but her doing drugs DOES affect people other than her, she doesn’t need to be married with children in order for her drug use to be a major issue.

    I’m pretty sure Amy Winehouse started doing drugs very casually. Nobody starts out inhaling massive amounts of coke. Addictions start out as something small, then they grow into problems. Problems that can lead to an early demise. Like I said, it’s one thing to experiment and leave it at that, it’s another to do it as a habit (it doesn’t matter if she said she only does it “occasionally” or a “couple times a year”, it is STILL A HABIT). It got serious enough for her family to intervene before, it WILL get serious again if she doesn’t stop it. Look no further than Jim Morrisson, Janis Joplin and Jimi Hendrix. I’m pretty sure back in the day you would have defended their drug use too, and look what happened to them.

    I don’t think most people condemning her drug use are doing so because they feel good about judging her. They do so because they know what consequences drugs lead to, and if she doesn’t cut it out altogether, it’s likely that she will end up like the rock stars I just mentioned, which of course no one wants that. Most people abhor drugs in general, their condemning it doesn’t mean that they’re hypocrites who are doing drugs on the side. That’s the weakest argument I’ve heard. I condemn murder, does that mean that I’m most likely a hypocrite and I secretly kill people on the side?

  73. bbq August 4, 2010

    I don’t believe her!

    She has every 70’s glam rock cliche there is!

    I love her music and what she stands for but sometimes I feel like she’ll say whatever to attract attention!

  74. The AlexanderTG August 4, 2010

    Wow – this is such a late post on this thread now I don’t know if you’ll even get to read it.
    OK – I do get your point about her family and as a fan of hers I do want her to be around for a long time – I’m honestly looking forward to going to see her still when I’m like 40 – just imagine what that’d be like with her having 10 or 11 albums worth of material to choose from for a concert. I get the people who are concerned for her welfare honestly I do – but if she’s just using occasionally, just like she says and its under control and if I’m doing similar stuff, how can I do anything but get angry at those people who just shout out ‘Druggie’ and such. I wasn’t trying to make out people were hypocrites – honestly, I just thought more of you guys, a lot more, would be taking things – like I hinted at in my last post I get offered a lot of stuff for free – at parties, at festivals and gigs and so on. I hadn’t realised that my experience was so different to most other peoples. SORRY.

  75. Caitlin August 4, 2010

    No matter what she says about the matter, Gaga stans think of her as their idol, and will probably do what she does.
    That’s just my opinion.

  76. ALTER August 4, 2010

    Hey.. yes you! Wanna be as cool as Gaga???
    Let’s have a coke party then… wooohoooo***

  77. Matty August 4, 2010

    Whatever, who doesnt do coke once in awhile!

  78. Roberta August 4, 2010

    Very disapointing….She keeps on copying // pasting everything past artists already did….

    Look at her face now…She looks just bad ,and her real age shows……I m not sure her second album will be that amazing , she lost it.

  79. monique August 4, 2010

    ur wrong f u think tht this humanizes her…..this makes her look like and a%$ hole….and its obvious tht she does drugs…………..i see her going away soon, well atleast i hope so…..her head is too big now she thinks tht she’s kanye,

  80. smartee August 4, 2010

    LOL why are y’all surprised? Remember when we saw all of those pics of her LOOKING CRACKED OUT AND BONY… here’s the reason why! I knew she was still doing drugs! That’s why she’s so f**ked up in the head! I can’t believe people praise the hell outta her like she’s really some incredible, unique, and original talent! I won’t hold the drug use against her, but I will say that I can’t stand this chick because she’s all about controversy, s**, and superficialness. She’s retarded!

  81. BENJAMIN August 5, 2010

    Why is this not surprising, hey a lotta pop tarts sniff a little sumthin.’
