Lady Gaga “occasionally” takes cocaine

In this interview, she stated that she consumes cocaine “maybe a couple of times a year” and urges fans not to copy her.

She said: “I do not want my fans to ever emulate that or be that way.”

She admited that she faced her drug addiction before becoming famous.

Last year, she told The Observer that she did “bags and bags of cocaine” as a struggling artist in New York, but quit after being confronted by her father.

“I was able to stop, because I was panicking more on the drugs than I was sober,” she said at the time. “So I’m fine now.”

In the same interview with Vanity Fair, Lady Gaga talked about loneliness, success, her past relationships and her superstitions.

She said: “I’m lonely when I’m in relationships. It’s my condition as an artist.”

The Poker Face singer added in the candid chat: “I’m quite celibate now; I don’t really get time to meet anyone.”

She told the magazine: “I’m drawn to bad romances. And my song [Bad Romance] is about whether I go after those [sorts of relationships] or if they find me.

“I have this weird thing that if I sleep with someone they’re going to take my creativity from me.”
