Macy Gray Quit Drugs for Vanity's Sake

Gray once told a reporter she would take underwear, George Clooney, and marijuana with her to outer space.
For some, beauty is the ultimate anti-drug.

Singer-songwriter Macy Gray was once an unofficial ambassador for cannabis. She'd drop quotes like "Weed and birth-control pills are my regulars" in major music magazines and show up at parties on the arm of George Clinton. But it appears that hitting her fourth decade has altered Gray's relationship with illicit substances—mainly because of how they effect her appearance.

Gray explained to the UK's Telegraph, "At a certain age, drugs make you look really bad. When you're 20, you can party all night and look good; you wake up, throw on some sunglasses, you look great. Once you get into your thirties it takes a long time to shake it off. I was like, 'I can't do this anymore, it's starting to show!'"

Gray once wore a dress that read, "MY NEW ALBUM DROPS SEPT. 18 2001." So...didn't it always show?
