Former “Culture Club” performer Boy George has been popping over to PaperMag.com to blog “from time to time" (from his bed in London, no less), and the artist has recently questioned just how frequently Lady Gaga uses cocaine.
“If Lady Gaga were about to be exposed as a drug user I would understand her recent confession to Vanity Fair that she is an ‘occasional’ coke sniffer,” George wrote. “But why offer up this information on a whim? Could it be that her coke use is not ‘occasional?’”
Boy George, who himself has struggled with an addiction to heroin, said that he believes the word “occasional” can be more generous than one would think when you're taking about drugs.
His mother, he added, had the best take on Gaga’s admitted narcotics consumption, saying that "‘she’s reached the stage where she feels untouchable, you all get there - you did, son.’”
It’s an assessment that Boy George couldn't argue with. But while you’re debating what “occasional” could really mean, the Brit singer/songwriter threw in another question to mull over.
“One has to wonder how much of a grip Gaga has on things," he wrote. “Up until now she has seemed almost annoyingly professional and focused and this seems out of character! Isn't saying your an ‘occasional’ drug taker a bit like saying you're bisexual? That usually means you're raving!”
