Lady Gaga's year started off pretty terribly, since she had hip surgery that caused her to cancel the Born This Way Ball Tour.

Besides having to take time away from her beloved little monsters in order to recover, she was in intense pain. She had been suffering and playing through the pain for months, revealing that she was able to keep going by self-medicating.

Translation: She smoked lots and lots of weed.

How much is lots and lots? Try 15 joints a day!

Whoa! How did she do ANYTHING other than lounge around and indulge in cravings for munchies after inhaling that much of the green stuff?

She said, "I was smoking fifteen joints a day. It was a habit that eventually occurred when the pain got so bad with the hip. I was just numbing, numbing, numbing myself then sleeping it off, then getting on stage, killing it in pain, then getting off and smoking, smoking, smoking, not knowing what the pain was. F--k if I know what hurts the most, you know?"

Gaga tried to get a hold of her hankering for pot, saying, "I would break the habit and it would sneak back in and I would break it and sneak back in."

She really was Mary Jane Holland, it seems.

Ma Monster weaned herself off the green stuff, admitting, "Now I smoke a little bit at night just, you know, for fun. But not to cope, that’s the difference. I’m the soberest I’ve ever been in the past five years."
