Like father, like daughter: Lady Gaga inherited her wild streak from her father. The "Edge of Glory" hitmaker - who famously dressed in a gown made of meat and once hatched out of an egg live on stage - explained her dad Joe hired a stripper to teach her the piano and used to enjoy al fresco romps with random women.
"He was having sex with girls under the boardwalk in New Jersey before he went to see Bruce Springsteen. He saw a lot of himself in me. My first piano teacher was a stripper. My dad told me later. I used to say to her, 'Why do you have such long nails?' She just said, 'Someday you'll understand why.'"
However, the 25-year-old singer credits her father with "kicking her ass" and helping her to stop using cocaine. "I was for sure addicted to coke. I got off it because my father called me out and kicked my ass. I didn't do it with people, I did it alone. But I regret every line I did," she said.
A new month means a new drug-related arrest for Paris Hilton.
The hotel heiress kicked off her weekend with a brief stint in jail last night after cocaine was discovered in her purse. The 29-year-old and and boyfriend Cy Waits were initially pulled over by Las Vegas police when suspected marijuana smoke was seen blowing out of their car. Waits, who was the driver, was later booked for a DUI (influence of drugs) while Paris was held for possession.
Hilton, who secured celebrity lawyer David Chesnoff as her attorney, was released on her recognizance a short time later without having to post any bail. According to TMZ, the socialite plans to use the “It Wasn’t My Purse” defense as her excuse.

The woman who refuses to allow international borders get in the way of her partying: Paris Hilton was arrested for drug possession in South Africa last night.
The hotel heiress was taken into police custody and held in a cell after watching the soccer World Cup match between Brazil and Holland in Port Elizabeth as undercover police officers said they had found local marijuana, known as ‘dagga,’ in her handbag.

Although the actor’s name had been linked to an ongoing illegal drug ring, Corey Haim’s death was not a result of any substances.
The Los Angeles County Coroner officially announced today that the Lost Boy star died on March 10 due to natural causes.
The 38-year-old, who had had troubles with addiction, passed away as a result of pneumonia complicated by an enlarged heart, bad lungs and narrowed blood vessels. While there were traces of marijuana and other medications in his system, they had “no significant contributing factors” in his death.
According to the autopsy report, Haim’s mother admitted getting rid of prescription medications in the home after his death “because she didn’t want anyone else to get hold of the medication and she didn’t know the police would be responding to her residence.”

An unknown home-cameraman has decided to share a fifty-year old video of someone who very much appears to be late actress Marilyn Monroe. In the short film, she takes a few hits off what very much appears to be a joint (you know, marijuana). The video purports to have been shot in 1958 or 59.
Keya Morgan, a New York area collector, has purchased the film (for the bargain price of $275K). He’ll be selling it on eBay this week. The story first broke in the Huffington Post.

Joss Stone is open to sampling more drugs.
The “Super Duper Love” singer openly admits to smoking marijuana and hasn’t ruled out dabbling with other illegal substances in future, even though she thinks they are “horrible.”
“I don’t want to take all those horrible drugs. Although some sound fun, so I might dabble now and then!” she said. “I smoke cannabis, but I don’t think it’s really a drug. It’s more of a herb. I don’t regret saying that at all.”
When quizzed on how often she smoked, she added to Britain’s Star magazine: “It depends if I’m working, and on what song. It’s like having a drink.”
Angelina Jolie may be known for his tattoos, love of daggers and vials of blood, but the actress isn’t the only one in her family with a rebellious past.
During a sit-down on Real Time with Bill Maher, Brad Pitt expanded on comments he made recently to Ann Curry. (You can see that interview after the jump.) Earlier this week, the father of six joked that if he was running for a political position on the “gay marriage, no religion, legalization and taxation of marijuana platform.” Apparently his feelings on the leafy substance stem from years of experience.

UPDATE: Michael has been suspended for 3 months by USA Swimming. He’s also lost his Kellogg sponsorship.
Although he was previously scheduled to celebrate with the Super Bowl attendees in Tampa, Michael Phelps spent this weekend addressing a celebration from last fall. (Note to future Olympic superstars: There’s no such thing as a “private” party with college students.)
Thanks to a picture of him posted online by News of the World, Phelps was forced to apologize to his admirers and sponsors. The photo, supposedly taken in November at a Univ. of South California party, clearly shows Michael inhaling a substance from a marijuana pipe.
