Lady Gaga Caught on Video Smoking Pot on Stage (watch!)

Lady Gaga got fired up on stage in more ways than one during her show in Amsterdam. She lit a huge marijuana blunt and waxed philosophically about the benefits of pot while she toked on the joint.

Gaga, 26, who once professed to having a serious cocaine addiction, said smoking pot has help her curb drinking and has given her some “spiritual” insight into her music.

Calling the drug “wondrous,” she told London tabloid The Sun, that the drug has “really changed my life.”

“I’ve really cut down on drinking. It has been a totally spiritual experience for me with my music. It’s like saying everybody needs to take a breath and it’s going to be OK,” she said.

And what better place to reveal her feelings than Amsterdam, she told the crowd. Smoking marijuana has been decriminalized in the Netherlands, as long as the amounts are small.

Gaga said she planned to lobby President Obama to make marijuana legal in the United States.

“There’s a way to be recreational and be young and rebellious and have a good time and not hurt yourself,” she said from the stage.
