    Star reports that Lady Gaga is sick and obsessed with her body and her weight, thanks to an explosive new tell-all which documents her alleged drug abuse and dangerous diet. Investigative journalist Ian Halperin has made startling allegations about Gaga in a sit-down with the tabloid.

    "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," said Halperin, who has spent 12 months investigating Gaga for his book. "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."

    Halperin also makes the claim that Gaga's lupus is much worse that she is letting on. "Part of the reason she wears wigs and makeup is because her hair is falling out and she's covered in red blotches, both side effects of the disease," he said.

    Drug use is also discussed in the interview and the book, with Halperin claiming, "Her drug use started young. From heroin to cocaine and ecstasy, her friends say that she has done every drug conceivable. You name it she has done it."

    Halperin is quick to point out that she has distorted her identity in the process of residing in the space between fantasy and reality, between theater and reality, as Gaga has said about herself. "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," he said.

    What do you think of Ian Halperin's shocking claims about Lady Gaga?
