In the Times interview, the 24-year-old singer also dismissed rumors that she has an eating disorder but admitted that she needs prescription pills to keep her thoughts under control. At one point Gaga hinted that she uses Ecstasy from time to time, but revealed she is not in the habit of taking recreational drugs.
"I don't touch cocaine anymore," she told the Times. "I don't smoke. Well, maybe a single cigarette -- with whisky -- while I'm working, because it just frees my mind a little bit. But I care about my voice. ... I take care of myself."
But there is one Gaga rumor that can be put to rest: she does not have a penis. The Times's reporter writes that she got a definitive response to the query about Gaga's gender during a long night with the singer in a Berlin sex club.
