The world has fallen in love with Gaga due to her eccentric attire and her uplifting music. She never fails to put on a show wherever she goes! Her “over the top” costumes make her a bigger then life personality with more to offer then the average pop star. While her designer dresses draw attention, they also hide her ever shrinking body beneath.
A new book written by Ian Halperin, states that during his interviews of Gaga’s life, she admitted to long bouts of drug abuse. Her drug of choice being cocaine. 2005, marked a year of obsessive use and sick behavior.
She said: ‘My cocaine soundtrack was The Cure. I loved all their music, but I listened to this one song on repeat while I did bags and bags of cocaine.
‘I didn’t think there was anything wrong with me until my friends came over and said, “Are you doing this alone? Um, yes. Me and my mirror”.
Concerned friends have also commented on Gaga’s diminishing frame.
He said: ‘Those who have worked with her on tour reported to me that Gaga barely ate for weeks at a time to fit into her costume.
‘She is sick and obsessed with her weight. One friend told me, Gaga will stare at herself in the mirror for hours on end, analysing and critiquing her body. It’s an unhealthy obsession (source).
While I have always been a fan of Lady Gags’s music, she has become the Madonna of a new generation. She is a role model to many and this new book could be a downfall. If this is rumor, we hope that it get cleared up quick! If it’s not, then we pray that she will get the help she needs before teens use it as a way to identify with this iconic super star.
