The vice: Whiskey and weed

With her raw meat dresses and recent Grammy Award entrance via gigantic egg, we’re not sure anyone was all that surprised when Lady Gaga, during a recent interview with 60 Minutes, confessed to smoking pot and drinking a lot of whiskey.  And while we appreciate her honesty, how could the icon’s admission not influence her little monsters to dabble in doobies? After all, research sponsored by the National Cancer Institute suggests that more than one-third of all U.S. adolescents start smoking after seeing a celeb they admire smoking in a movie. Can music videos be that much different? Let’s hope her fans instead pay attention to her lyrics, which promote tolerance and self-acceptance (if not sobriety). In her new single, Born This Way, Gaga sings, “Don't hide yourself in regret -- just love yourself and you're set."
