Gaga's drug inspiration

Lady GaGa has told Q Magazine that taking drugs contributed to her music career, as she found inspiration in the illegal substances.

Gaga explained, "(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."

She continued, "I was really out of control. But I never got so far into it that I overdosed or anything."

However, the singer insisted that she no longer needs drugs to help her creativity.

She said, "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."
