Lady Gaga's Diet: Ecstasy, Whiskey, and Pills

Everyone’s been on Lady Gaga’s case lately for how skinny she’s been getting. But the pop princess is setting the record straight on her eating habits, and insists she’s not avoiding food.

In an interview with the Times UK, Gaga said, "My schedule is such that I don't get very much time to eat. But I certainly don't have an eating problem.”

She also talked about recreational drug use, something she doesn’t seem to have a problem with at all! “A little MDMA [Ecstasy] once in a while never killed anybody, but I really don't do drugs,” Gaga said.

“I don't touch cocaine any more. I don't smoke. Well, maybe a single cigarette - with whisky - while I'm working, because it just frees my mind a little bit. But I care about my voice. The thrill of my voice being healthy on stage is really special. I take care of myself."

Hey maybe she and Lindsay Lohan can be friends! And—this next quote really surprised us—she admits to taking prescription pills! She explained that they keep her “sane.”

"Prescription medicine,” Gaga said. “I can't control my thoughts at all. I'm tortured. But I like that. Lorca says it's good to be tortured. The thoughts are unstoppable - but so is the music. It comes to me constantly."

But Gaga wants her fans to know that her pill popping has nothing to do with the fact that she’s been collapsing on stage lately.

She said, "It's just from fatigue and other things. I'm very connected to my aunt, Joanne, who died of lupus. It's a very personal thing. I don't want my fans to be worried about me."

Well after this interview, we are worried! We know Gaga is known for speaking her mind, but this is a little shocking! Gaga better watch it, or she’s going to have Dr. Drew on her case before she knows it!
