    Boy George is musing about things that Lady Gaga said in her September cover story for Vanity Fair, where she admitted to her "occasional" use of cocaine. She quantified the statement, saying she uses the white stuff a couple times a year.

    Boy George ruminates on that very statement in his Paper Magazine blog, since he is a former drug abuser himself. George wrote, "If Lady Gaga were about to be exposed as a drug user I would understand her recent confession to Vanity Fair that she is an 'occasional' coke sniffer. But why offer up this information on a whim? Could it be that her use of coke is not so 'occasional?' As a recovering addict who knows how dangerous 'occasional' use is, I can think of no reason for Gaga to reveal this to her young audience."

    Do you agree? Did Gaga send the wrong message to her Monsters by admitting her coke usage?
