These 5 celebrities have all spoken candidly on experimenting with drugs. Some have just caved to their curiosity and tried smoking some weed while others had a hard struggle and fell into drug addiction with harder substances. Luckily they’ve all managed to move past their addictions, deciding to get clean and work on their amazing careers. Many people experiment with drugs during their lives: some just want to try and never touch drugs again after, while others develop habits that they need to kick before they end up ruining their lives, dying young or wasting their potential to be truly great – there have been many amazing talents lost too early to addiction or accidental overdose. Here are 5 stars and their drug experimentation stories/cautionary tales.
Fergie had a serious drug problem until she had a realization: ”My brain had been playing a lot of tricks on me. You’re kind of living in this alternate reality. I started getting really paranoid. So I went one day into this church and I thought that the FBI and the SWAT teams were outside the church … so I had a conversation with God … and I said, ‘Alright, if I go out there and the FBI and the SWAT team’s not out there, then it’s the drugs and I’m stopping.’ I went outside of the church … and there was no SWAT team, there was no FBI, just me and God. And I kept my promise. That day. That was it.”
Kendra went through a hard time and turned to drugs: “I kind of lost myself for a little bit. I wasn’t a druggie stripper. I was a very good person doing it. But I was kind of still embarrassed about it. I always knew that it was wrong. But the drugs and everything, that’s what found me and accepted me.” Speaking on moving on from drugs, she adds: “It took a while. A good couple of weeks to think about, ‘OK, the time is coming. I don’t know when yet. But this isn’t me.’ “
Michael tried out some drugs but never got into harder drugs and doesn’t think there is anything wrong with smoking some weed: “I grew up in Vancouver, which has the best weed in the world and good alcohol. You can score (buy drugs) just walking down the street, so I did. I’ve never done cocaine or heroin or anything stronger. But I don’t see anything wrong with relaxing with a joint.
Pink ditched drugs when she decided to give her career a proper go: ”It wasn’t to the point of going to the hospital, but I remember getting up off the floor in the morning – and that was the last time I ever touched a drug again. It was also the day a DJ offered to let me sing on hip hop night. His only caveat was that I couldn’t do drugs, so I didn’t. That’s the thing with me – once I make up my mind, I’m done.”
Usher has experimented but wouldn’t go near harder drugs like cocaine and no longer smokes because it makes him paranoid: “I’ve experimented with drugs, but not hard ones. I’ve never done cocaine, but I have smoked marijuana. I wouldn’t advise it, though, because it’s supposed to be bad for you. It made me paranoid.”
