Pop star Lady Gaga may have frequently used drugs in the past….but it was only for good inspiration! The “Alejandro” singer recently explained to Q Magazine that getting stoned in her younger days helped bring out the creativity in her music.

“[Using drugs] I really figured out the art I wanted to make and was inspired. Some people find inspiration in dark places. I guess I’m one of them. What always made me different is that if I was doing drugs I was also making music. I wasn’t just doing drugs.”

But a more older and mature Gaga now wants everyone to know that…people who say drugs help them be more creative are full of sh***!

“Once you open those doors they’re open for ever. People who say they need [drugs] to be creative are full of s**t. I’m not some chick on the road getting high and f***ed up every night. I wake up, drink coffee and get on the phone to talk about the creative direction of the next video.”

That damn Gaga…always speaking her mind!
