Lady Gaga has courted controversy by smoking marijuana onstage during her show in Amsterdam last night (September 18). You can watch a video of her smoking the spliff by clicking above.

The singer, who is touring her enormous ‘Born This Way’ ball, lit up during her gig at the Ziggo Dome and praised “wondrous marijuana” after getting the joint from a crowd member at the show.

She told the crowd: “I want you to know it has totally changed my life and I’ve really cut down on drinking. It has been a totally spiritual experience for me with my music.”

Gaga also joked she was going to talk to President Barack Obama in a bid to make marijuana legal worldwide and added that she believed that the drug’s leaf symbol is the “new peace sign”. She added: “It’s like saying everybody needs to take a breath and it’s going to be OK.”

Lady Gaga recently completed the tour’s British leg with a pair of dates at Twickenham Stadium on September 8 and 9 and a third show at Manchester Arena on September 11.

The singer will return to the UK for a public appearance at iconic London department store Harrods on October 7.
