The eccentric pop star is known for being open, especially with her fans, and has admitted everything from being bisexual to enjoying her fair share of alcohol and marijuana on occasion.
In a new interview with Attitude magazine, however, the "Applause" singer confesses that her use of marijuana crossed over from recreational to sheer dependence during her hip injury.
"I was smoking 15 joints a day," she admitted. "It was a habit that eventually occurred when the pain got so bad with the hip."
"I was just numbing, numbing, numbing myself then sleeping it off, then getting on stage, killing it in pain, then getting off and smoking, smoking, smoking, not knowing what the pain was. F**k if I know what hurts the most, you know? I would break the habit and it would sneak back in and I would break it and sneak back in."
She claims that Marina Abramovic taught her a new method of meditation and helped her clean up her act, saying she is currently the most sober she has been in five years.
