I was talking about interviews on MTV, particularly ones she did with Mark whats-his-name on MTV (dark curly hair veejay) not stage performances. There's a seated interview where she's a bit looped and her eyes are like totally dilated and one where they are standing outside and she is totally coked up and giggly and incoherent.

Yes that's from 1983 US Festival
Her and Mark would do huge lines of coke together.

In 1987 she gave several MTV interviews. The one where she says she did not want to be a hot dog for Halloween but always wanted to be a witch. Then the other long one where she is in the fur coat talking about the tour. Those interviews were normal.

I cant imagine for the life of me what a Streel Angel tour would have been like if she had not cleaned up. 1994 was the first tour in 20 years that she was not on some substance while performing live. Her hair was fried, her waist bigger, but supposedly clean as a whistle.
Wow, I can't believe I've never heard that story before.

Did she fire any of those friends from her life? Addicts often do...

Do you know who there were?

This was in the People's magazine article when she blew the lid off her coke addiction, klonopin addiction, and breast implant removal (or anther article around that time). Remember when she told people she kept her breast implants in her freezer?
Years later she softened the story claiming she asked Mike Campbell to take one of her klonopin doses and he was so wiped out that he urged her to get help. So not sure if the Mike Campbell story came before or after the fall. She also stated kicking tranqulizers was brutal as you can imagine being hooked for so many years. Her hair turned grey and her skin shed like a snake.
All of this is my paraphrasing and article from 1998.
After rehab she pissed off her producer and brought Waddy in to play guitar over songs and Sheia E's brother to do percussion while her producer was in England. She claims she did not have time to fix the record properly and it was already overdue because of her rehab.

Edit: Here is the article. One part I forgot is after she gashed her head open on the fireplace....she never felt a thing! (now that's some serious drug)

It was Glenn Parrish. Not Mike Campbell.

Well whoever it was this had to be the stupidest thing I ever heard in my life.

"I believe this drug is killing me, can you take it and tell me what you think?"

Who does that?

Like no one knew what the hell was going on. It was the elephant in the living room for so many years yet she is asking a friend to try her dose. Very irresponsible.

Now if $he offered to let me sample her blow, that would be a different story!
