Boy George Slams Gaga!
If there’s one artist that knows all about the foibles of drug addiction, it’s Boy George. Which may explain why the Culture Club star hasn’t taken too kindly to Lady Gaga’s recent admission that she uses cocaine.
The recently-incarcerated singer, whose own battle with drugs has been well documented, blasted the kooky songstress by saying that even occasional use is dangerous.
“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,” George wrote on his blog hosted at PaperMag.com. “But why offer up this information on a whim? Could it be that her coke use is not ‘occasional?’”
Even though the wacky pop-star urged fans not to follow in her footsteps in the Vanity Fair magazine interview, George maintained that the confession was irresponsible to her followers.
He added: “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!”
