Lady Gaga biography details drug use, overdieting, the obvious


Now that Lady Gaga has all but taken over the world, the unauthorized bios and dirty laundry are bound to come out. case in point: There's a new that says she takes a lot of drugs and starves herself to death. Didn't we already know that?

"Those who have worked with her on tour reported to me that Gaga barely ate for weeks at a time to fit into her costume," writer Ian Halperin told Star (via RadarOnline) about the glam-pop queen. "She is sick and obsessed with her weight. One friend told me, Gaga will stare at herself in the mirror for hours on end, analyzing and critiquing her body. It's an unhealthy obsession."

Halperin, who has written bios about Michael Jackson, Brangelina and Arnold Schwarzenegger, says the elaborate costumes are to hid a bigger issue: "Her lupus is far worse than she lets on. Part of the reason she wears wigs and makeup is because her hair is falling out and she's covered in red blotches, both side effects of the disease."

Plus, there's the substance abuse. "Her drug use started young. From heroin to cocaine and ecstasy, her friends say that she has done every drug conceivable. You name it she has done it."

Yawn. We knew all about the drugs and lupus already -- she even talked about it onstage a little when she was in Tampa just a couple months ago. As for the near-anorexia, well, you'd think she would have to starve herself just a wee bit to fit into those dresses made out of coat hangers and rubber. Whaddya expect from a woman who tours something like 361 days a year?
