Lady Gaga covers the September 2010 issue of Vanity Fair and provides some interesting insight into her drug use. The 24-year-old singer revealed that she is “terrified of heroin”, but still does “mostly cocaine”.

The musician sat down with VF for a candid interview and talked about her drug habits. She said, “I won’t lie; it’s occasional. And when I say occasional, I mean maybe a couple of times a year.”

Concerned that her fans might get the wrong idea, she tells about hitting rock bottom: “I do not want my fans to ever emulate that or be that way. I don’t want my fans to think they have to be that way to be great. It’s in the past. It was a low point, and it led to disaster. I was completely mental and had just been through so much.”

Gaga opted to go to her 82-year-old grandmother in West Virgina instead of checking into rehab. Thinking that her life was over and there was no hope, she sobbed constantly. Her wise relative told her, “I’m gonna let you cry for a few more hours. And then after those few hours are up, you’re gonna stop crying, you’re gonna pick yourself up, you’re gonna go back to New York, and you’re gonna kick some a**.”
