If Lady Gaga were about to be exposed as a drug user I would understand her recent confession to Vanity Fair that she is an 'occasional' coke sniffer. But why offer up this information on a whim? Could it be that her use of coke is not so "occasional?" As a recovering addict who knows how dangerous "occasional" use is, I can think of no reason for Gaga to reveal this to her young audience. My mum had the best take on this "she's reached the stage where she feels untouchable, you all get there -- you did, son." I can't argue with that! One has to wonder how much of a grip Gaga has on things. Up until now she has seemed almost annoyingly professional and focused and this seems out of character! Isn't saying your an "occasional" drug taker a bit like saying you're bisexual? That usually means you're raving!
