The 27-year-old singer told Attitude magazine that she was ‘smoking 15 joints a day’ following the tear and breakage of her hip.

She revealed:"It was a habit that eventually occurred when the pain got so bad with the hip.

"I was just numbing, numbing, numbing myself then sleeping it off, then getting on stage, killing it in pain, then getting off and smoking, smoking, smoking, not knowing what the pain was.

"F*** if I know what hurts the most, you know? I would break the habit and it would sneak back in and I would break it and sneak back in."

Gaga also admitted that she turned to drugs following bad experiences early on in her career.

She said: "I went through terrible experiences early in my career climbing through swine and swine of men in the music industry - just trying to get somebody to listen to my music and take me seriously as a songwriter instead of trying to get me to b*** them."

In a bid to curb her addiction, Lady Gaga eventually signed up to Marina Abramović's intense rehab session earlier this year.
 
The session required the singer to starve herself for three days and find her way out of the woods while blindfolded.

Which sounds more like the Hunger Games than rehab to us.

Despite the intensive treatment, the singer admits that she still smokes every now and then.

She explained: "Now I smoke a little bit at night just, you know, for fun.

“But not to cope - that's the difference. I'm the soberest I've ever been in the past five years."
