Lady Gaga’s new behind-the-scenes Netflix documentary Gaga: Five Foot Two has thus far been lauded by fans for its refreshingly candid approach to revealing the day-to-day triumphs and tribulations of the 31-year-old pop sensation.
In the documentary, Gaga revealed her ongoing battle with fibromyalgia, her occasional bouts with celebrity-induced despair, and on a lighter note, the time she received flowers from her ex-fiancé before her Super Bowl halftime performance.
However, arguably the best reveal of the documentary didn’t happen until the credits began to roll.
During the short clip that appeared once the credits began, Gaga referenced to an instance where she smoked a shit ton of weed in front of fellow pop star Beyoncé.
“That was the night I gave Beyoncé, like, a panic attack,” Gaga explained to her friend. “I don’t know, I just always feel like when I’m with her and Jay-Z, I’m always like hanging out in the corner with like nine joints hanging out of my mouth being like ‘Whaaaaat’s up?!’ and she’s like ‘You’re not a lady but why? How is this working?’”
Final Hit: Lady Gaga Smoking Weed in Front of Beyonce
While one would assume that Beyoncé would be comfortable around some piff considering she is, well, married to Jay-Z, it appears as if Gaga is just on an entirely different weed-stratosphere than Mrs. Carter.
Gaga has been candid about her weed-usage over the years, and even went as far to say in a 2013 interview on the Elvis Duran and The Z100 Morning Show that she was actually addicted to smoking marijuana. She claimed at one point, she was smoking up to 15 joints a day.
“I have been addicted to it and it’s ultimately related to anxiety coping and it’s a form of self-medication and I was smoking up to 15-20 marijuana cigarettes a day with no tobacco,” Gaga revealed.
Although Gaga isn’t as reliant upon the plant as she once was, it’s clear she is still a regular-user. Considering she has to deal with the chronic pain of fibromyalgia on a day-to-day basis, it’s certainly warranted. Eighty-year-old actor Morgan Freeman also has claimed to use cannabis to deal with his fibromyalgia, so it’s certainly an option for Gaga.
Either way, we’re just glad she was able to provide us with an inside scoop of a legendary weed-centric encounter Queen B herself. If that also doesn’t warrant smoking some ganja, we don’t know what does.
