Well, this might explain her arrival in an egg at the Grammy awards.
In an interview with "60 Minutes," Lady Gaga admitted that she turns to whiskey and weed when she needs to get inspired.
"I smoke a lot of pot when I write music. I'm not gonna sugarcoat it for '60 Minutes,'" the singer said in a profile that aired Sunday. "I drink a lot of whiskey and I smoke weed when I write. I don't do it a lot because it's not good for my voice."
Gaga made it clear, however, that she is not encouraging kids to do drugs, but rather simply being honest with her millions of Little Monsters. And she thinks other entertainers should be equally upfront.
"What artists do wrong is they lie," she told "AC:360's" Anderson Cooper. "And I don't lie. I'm not a liar. I built goodwill with my fans. They know who I am, and I'm just like them in so many ways."
