"Cliches about supporting the troops are designed to distract from failed policies, policies promoted by powerful special interests that benefit from war, anything to steer the discussion away from the real reasons the war in Iraq will not end anytime soon." Ron Paul
Of course there are double standards, the same happened when Rihanna was asked about the Chris brown incident, and you monsters, blame on her and not the interviewer, you said that she could have avoided the question, or that she should have told them not to ask about it before the interview.
Gaga didn't answer this in a way to make cocaine look cool or harmless or like a victim. She said she was a ****ing loser when doing it and anyone that does it needs to stop because the only thing it turns you into is a loser. This was an interview about making right decisions and living a healthy life. I'm sure if she never mentioned her drug use people would say "why am i taking advice from her if she has never experienced any of it?". She was letting the audience know that SHE TOO went through a period of drugs, because i dont think all the women who watch lifetime know about her past like you stans do. Watch the video like said 10000000 times.
