Lady Gaga is on the Edge -- of Insanity and I'm not talking about her wacky costumes or over-the-top make-up. Investigative journalist Ian Halperin has made allegations about Gaga, insisting that the performer is "sick" and "obsessed" with her weight along with having a dangerous drug addiction. Halperin, who has been investigating Gaga over the course of 12 months for his next book, reveals 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." He goes on to say that, "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." Little Monsters everywhere are crying out in protest -- this can't be the same Lady Gaga who preaches to love yourself because you're Born This Way.
Halperin also insists that there's a more serious reason behind the Poker Face singer's outrageous outfits and heavy make-up. Gaga has admitted to having lupus, but according to Halperin's reports, "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." Michael Jackson suffered from the same disease along with vitiligo, which supposedly was the cause of the change of his skin color and the real reason for the famous glove.
If all that wasn't enough, Halperin also claims, "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." This is just so disappointing that someone with such a massive band of followers and admirers could allow themselves to get into such a mess. People -- especially kids -- look up to her (including me), so to hear about what goes on behind closed doors is extremely upsetting. Gaga is only supposed to be a name, not a way to act, but Halperin states, "She's morphed into this caricature called Lady Gaga, who isn't even a real person. The girl known as Stefi to her friends and family has all but disappeared."
I would like to say that these could just be all the ravings of a mad man, but Halperin has already penned biographies of Michael Jackson, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie and Arnold Schwarzenegger. He also famously predicted the King of Pop's death. Let's just hope this Queen of Pop isn't next...
