Lady Gaga may be one of the most talented musicians in the game, but she has one bad habit all her famous friends want her to drop — smoking.
According to PopCrush, the “Born This Way” visionary admits to needing to smoke occasionally due to the anxiety she has over her work, such as her most recent single “Perfect Illusion” being released last week.
“I will quit when we start doing TV and stuff, but I try to look at things in perspective…It’s terrible. I have been yelled at by Elton [John], by Stevie Wonder, by Tony Bennett, the list could go on of amazing, great people who are like, ‘You need to stop smoking.’”
Oddly enough she doesn’t smoke cigarettes — her go-to smoke of choice is a clove cigar! In a recent interview, “she had to leave the studio moments earlier to smoke a cigar in the garage, due to anxiety she felt over the release of her latest single, “Perfect Illusion.”
