Gaga on wheelchair recovery: 'I turned to drugs and alcohol'

Pop sensation Lady Gaga has confessed that her hip surgery recovery was fuelled by alcohol and drugs, and that she wants to talk about it so her Little Monsters aren't tempted to follow the same path. 

Speaking to German newspaper Bild, the 'Applause' superstar explained that while she was recovering from her surgery earlier this year and confined to a wheelchair, she turned to intoxication to deal with it:

"I turned to drugs and alcohol [when in my wheelchair]. Now I want to tell my fans: Don't do the same. Today I feel pure, sheer - happy!"

She added that she has always been unpredictable in her behaviour: "It was in Amsterdam - I just dyed my hair dark, was under the radar for ONE day. I've always been a rebel, did everything my dad [Joe] forbid. I am a grenade. When I go out, I explode!"
