Lady GaGa: Drugs 'helped' in music
Reportedly, Lady GaGa has admitted that taking drugs contributed to her music career.
The Lady revealed that she would write songs whenever she took illegal substances because she found inspiration in "dark places".
Gaga told Q: "[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.
"What always made me different is that if I was doing drugs I was also making music. I wasn't just doing drugs."
The singer also added that her mother thought she had gone crazy during her early performances.
The 24-year-old explained: "At the beginning I was doing performance art in handmade leather and leopard bikinis talking about oral sex and Andy Warhol and heavy metal.
"My mum was like, 'You've lost your mind.' I was doing drugs, I was really out of control. But I never got so far into it that I overdosed or anything."
Although, GaGa insisted that she no longer needs drugs to help her creativity.
Lady Gaga said: "Once you open those doors they're open for ever. People who say they need [drugs] to be creative are full of s**t.
"I'm not some chick on the road getting high and f***ed up every night. I wake up, drink coffee and get on the phone to talk about the creative direction of the next video."
