In an honest sit-down interview airing before the Grammys, Lady Gaga admitted to smoking pot while writing songs, according to RadarOnline.
"I still smoke a lot of pot when I write music," the outrageous performer told Anderson Cooper during her '60 Minutes' interview, where she appeared in a flesh-color leotard because she "didn't feel like wearing clothes."
"So I'm not gonna, like, sugar coat it for '60 Minutes' that I'm some, like, sober human being, 'cause I'm not," she continued, but was quick to add, "I don't want to encourage kids to do drugs."
She claims she no longer uses cocaine but was quite honest about her marijuana use, saying her honesty is for her fans.
"When you asked me about the sociology of fame and what artists do wrong -- what artists do wrong is they lie. And I don't lie. I'm not a liar," she said. "I built good will with my fans. They know who I am. And I'm just like them in so many ways."
Gaga's '60 Minutes' interview aired right before her much-anticipated performance at the Grammys. She shocked everyone by showing up on the red carpet "incubating" in an egg-shaped capsule and was "born" on stage while performing her latest single, 'Born This Way.'
Gaga went on to win the Grammy for Best Pop Vocal Album for 'The Fame Monster.'
