Forget the ‘Edge of Glory,’ according to a report from Star magazine (via Radar Online), Lady Gaga is on a dangerous edge when it comes to her health. From her eating habits to her extreme self-scrutinizing, apparently it is just a matter of time before Gaga’s unhealthy lifestyle catches up with her.
“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,” investigative journalist, Ian Halperin told Star. “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.”
But fitting into her outrageous and often barely there get-ups isn’t the only reason Gaga is so concerned with her body — according to Halperin, she uses her outlandish wigs and perfectly toned body to distract from the side affects of her Lupus — a disease she has publicly admitted to battling. The disease has reportedly caused the mother monster to lose hair and break out in red blotches all over her body.
But Halperin who has been investigating Gaga for the past 12 months explains that her disease and her weight problems are not her only demons.
“Her drug use started young,” he explained. “From heroin to cocaine and ecstasy, her friends say that she has done every drug conceivable. You name it she has done it. 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.”
Although we imagine that it’s only human to be somewhat self-scrutinizing when you’re performing in front of millions, we hope that Gaga can take her own ‘Born This Way’ advice.
