Pill-popping Allegedly the Only Way Lady Gaga Could Deal With Her $320M Fame

Lady Gaga has openly discussed her past drug use on multiple occasions. She first admitted to using drugs in 2010, during the peak of her fame. Many fans praised the Bad Romance singer for opening up about her struggles. However, celebrity blogger Perez Hilton revealed some of the darker aspects of her drug use. Hilton confirmed that Gaga began drinking and taking pills to cope with her fame, which ultimately led to their falling out in 2011.

Gaga admitted to occasional drug use, stating that she used cocaine once or twice a year. In 2012, she suffered a hip injury during her Born This Way tour and began using marijuana cigarettes to manage her pain.

Lady Gaga Popped All Kinds Of Pills To Deal With Her Sudden Fame

Celebrity blogger and gossip column writer Perez Hilton shared details about his falling out with Lady Gaga in his memoir, TMI: My Life in Scandal. The duo had shared a friendship since they met in 2008. Hilton revealed that the two spoke with each other for hours per day during the peak of their friendship, with him jokingly calling her “wifey”.

However, Hilton shared that fame changed Gaga, as she began taking pills to deal with her sudden rise to stardom. Hilton shared in his memoir (via Page Six):

“As she became Lady Gaga to the world, she began drinking in a different, more serious way, while also popping all kinds of pills.”

In her interview with Vanity Fair magazine in 2010, Gaga overshared about her s*x life and drug use. She shared that she was terrified of heroin but used to abuse ‘mostly’ cocaine. She added, “I won’t lie; it’s occasional. And when I say occasional, I mean maybe a couple of times a year” (via ABC News).

During her interview with Z100 radio station in 2013, she once again opened up about her addiction issues. Her hip injury forced her to take pain medications, and the Joker: Folie à Deux actress revealed taking 15-20 marijuana cigarettes per day. She explained her condition, stating, “I didn’t know where the pain was coming from so I was just in a lot of pain and very depressed all the time and not really sure why” (via NME).

In 2017, Gaga released a Netflix documentary, Gaga: Five Foot Two, where she opened up about her struggles with drug abuse and mental health. In a 2020 podcast with Zane Lowe, Gaga revealed that she had quit smoking completely and was contemplating sobriety by giving up alcohol.

Perez Hilton claimed that Lady Gaga would call him to talk about Christina Aguilera, whom she accused of copying the “sound and visuals” from one of her albums. Hilton then began to trash Aguilera and her flopped album, Bionic, in his column. Reflecting back, Hilton believed that Gaga was using him as a tool to take down her rivals. He stated that she never explicitly asked him to do so, but made him feel like he had to do something for his friend. Hilton shared:

“Looking back now, it’s one of the things I’m most ashamed of, and I can also see that Gaga was using me as a tool — not only against Christina but against other rivals too. She never explicitly asked me to write nasty things about people, but by moaning to me she made me feel like I, her best friend, should do something about it.”
