Lady Gaga's famous poker face now involves a large joint protruding from her mouth. During her latest performance in Amsterdam, the singer puffed on what she described as a "wondrous" spliff on stage, telling fans she was in an "appropriate place" to talk about the "medical wonders" of marijuana. “I want you to know it has totally changed my life and I’ve really cut down on drinking," she said. "It has been a totally spiritual experience for me with my music.” She quipped that she was going to talk with President Obama about making marijuana legal around the world. And during one of multiple costume changes throughout the show, she donned a T-shirt with marijuana leaves, which she describes as "the new peace sign," adding “It’s like saying everybody needs to take a breath and it’s going to be OK.” It's unclear whether the taking of these breaths contributed to her eyebrow-raising declaration to fans at a recent show in Ireland: "I'm so happy to be back in the UK!"
