Lady Gaga’s drug problem is worse than we thought. Gaga recently announced that she was addicted to marijuana, which apparently is possible, but if you believe Perez Hilton’s rants or any of Gaga’s songs (listen to “Dope”) it’s clear she was doing some stuff way harder than weed.
In a recent interview, Gaga mentioned the “27 club,” the group of hard-partying/talented musicians who all died of drug overdoses when they were 27. Kurt Cobain, Amy Winehouse, Jimi Hendrix, Jim Morrison and Janis Joplin are all in this sad “club.”
Gaga responded to the rumors that claim she is headed for the 27 club.
“I want to show people that I will last past 27 and I will last longer and so will you,” she told Elvis Duran on the Z100 show.
No one’s died from a marijuana overdose, so Gaga's mention of the 27 club can only mean she’s doing the kinds of drugs that land people in the 27 club in the first place.
Gaga also added that she’s over the live-fast, die-young mentality.
“I want to change this code in the atmosphere that in order to be remembered, I must die young. In order to be remembered as a legend, I must be dead first. This is unhealthy,” she said.
Gaga also talked about her struggle with fame and addiction.
“I do put that pressure on myself; I have to be high to be creative. I need that, that's an error in my life that happened for over ten years. Can I be brilliant without it? I know that I can be and I have to be because I want to live, and I want my fans to want to live.”
