Lady Gaga Smokes Weed On Stage (VIDEO)
Gaga was performing at the Ziggo Dome in Amsterdam when a concertgoer handed her a joint. Gaga didn’t waste any time before deciding to take advantage of marijuana’s decriminalized status in the Netherlands.
“Holland, is it real? Don’t tease me,” asked the singer. “Oh, it’s real.” Gaga then took a few hits and passed the joint off to another fan.
The 26-year-old pop star then took the opportunity to extoll the virtues of pot, telling audiences that it’s a “medical wonder”, and that it’s helped her cut down on her drinking significantly.
“It has been a totally spiritual experience for me with my music,” she told the eager crowd.
While Gaga, real name Stephanie Germanotta, has admitted to smoking pot in the past, this is the first time she’s done it in public. Public reaction has been mixed. While some think Gaga’s pot-smoking antics are no big deal, others feel that she’s a bad role model, and worse. This has inevitably led to plenty of arguments in comments sections of articles about the incident, one of which (no joke) featured the phrase “doing the weed”.
What do you think? Does the fact that Gaga smokes pot make her a ‘bad influence’, an ‘idiot’, or a ‘junkie’, as some Internet commenters seem to think? Should she avoid smoking it on stage so she won’t set a bad example for her younger fans? Is this debate overblown and ridiculous? Let us know in the comments.
