Lady Gaga Admits To Smoking Up To 15 Joints A Day

Lady Gaga has revealed she became addicted to weed. The singer admitted to smoking up to "15 joints a day" while recovering from hip surgery.

"I was just numbing, numbing, numbing myself then sleeping it off, then getting on stage, killing it in pain, then getting off and smoking, smoking, smoking, not knowing what the pain was," the songstress told Attitude magazine.

She also revealed the totally bizarre way she managed to kick the habit, confessing she sought help from performance artist Marina Abramovic who sent her blindfolded into the woods and told her she could "eat only art".

"Marina said, 'OK, you're coming to my house - no television, no computer, no marijuana, no nothing, no food. For three days, art only. You eat only art'," she said.

But that was just the start of the weirdness. Marina also sent Gaga into woods for three hours while blindfolded to help find her "way home".

"So I was walking and I started to cry because I hadn't felt so connected to the earth for so long," she said of her experience.

The 27-year-old now claims she's limited her weed smoking to "a little bit at night".
