Lady Gaga’s drug days were over before she found fame

Lady Gaga has never dabbled with drugs since finding fame because she got the wild party era out of her system when she was a lonely teen.

The Born This Way hitmaker insists she never became addicted and gave up popping pills when she started singing professionally.

“There was a buffet of options (of drugs),” she tells the Los Angeles Times. “It’s very lonely being a performer. There’s a certain loneliness that I feel, anyway – that I’m the only one that does what I do. So it feels like no one understands. And the urge to use is because you’re searching for a way to quell the pain.”

“When I first started to perform around the country, doing nightclubs, there was stuff everywhere, but I had already partied when I was younger so I didn’t dabble,” she continues. “I was able to avoid it because I did it when I was a kid.”

Gaga, who drew on her knowledge of drug use to play aspiring singer Ally in A Star is Born, opposite director and actor Bradley Cooper’s washed-up singer character, insists the drugs only temporarily squashed her feelings of insecurity and loneliness, and now when she’s on a downer she looks to her fans.

“To be honest, I think what makes me feel beautiful is when I see happiness in my fans,” she says. “When I see or hear from them that the music that I’ve made has changed their life in some way, that’s what makes me feel beautiful.

“At the end of the day, I could be in a million movies and put out a million songs and everyone could say, ‘She was so beautiful’, but that’s not really what I want. I want them to say, ‘I saw that movie and I cried my eyes out and I learned something about myself’.”
