Lady Gaga exhaled a puff of controversy last night in Amsterdam.
It was right after singing and dancing her way through the appropriately titled song “Bad Kids” when Mother Monster took a different kind of breather in front of her audience.
She pulled out a pack of Marlboro Reds, smelling each cigarette, and then tossing them aside when they weren’t what she was, well, craving. Finally she finds in a separate plastic baggie a single marijuana joint, sending the crowd into a cheering frenzy. Gaga lights up, takes a couple puffs, and satisfyingly exalts, “Fucking A.”
I’d go on to say she “got high,” except she didn’t really. She clears the smoke on this, citing experience as she crosses the stage.
“And for those of you who are wondering if I’m high right now, I am not,” she says, before laughing, “That is not nearly enough to get me high.”
She also told the crowd: “I want you to know it has totally changed my life and I've really cut down on drinking. It has been a totally spiritual experience for me with my music."
Of course, this is Amsterdam, so it’s all within her legal rights for Lady Gaga to be Lady Ganja.
Speaking of legality, she also joked she was going to have a little chat with President Barack Obama about legalizing Mary J worldwide, adding that she feels the drug’s leaf symbol is the “new peace sign.”
The singer is currently on her behemoth “Born This Way” tour. You can see her pass the dutchie on the left hand side to a Dutch.
