Lady Gaga Warns You: Cocaine Is The Devil

Latex is okay, booze is fine, preposterous platforms? Hell yes. But don't do coke, Lady Gaga chides. She was on Howard Stern's show yesterday, and said: "To any little sweethearts that are listening - don't touch cocaine, it's the devil." She explained her coke snorting days thusly: "I think that I was lonely and there was something about the drug that made me feel like I had a friend. And I regret every line that I ever did. Whatever my vagina whispers to me, I say yes - inspiration, it doesn't come all the time." Gaga also talked about the process of writing "Edge Of Glory" on the day her grandfather died: She said to her father, "Grandpa's about to cross over into his glorious moment. It's hard now because he's on the edge." And: "When my grandma was saying goodbye [to my grandfather], there was something so intense that happened for me that I saw ... as sad as the moment was, they both were acknowledging that they had really won in life because they had each other."
