It's no surprise that someone like 50 Cent is attached to this. But it's upsetting that Mary J is. I am a big Mary J fan, and I really believed her about turning her life around, etc, etc. Apparently she might have used it for anti-aging. Her rep claims she never used steroids, but the reports state they were shipped to her and the other rappers.

I can see that.

No good can possibly come from using this vast wasteland of error and deliberate deceit. You should get off of it and warn others away. You should make sure your children and grandchildren know what a corrupt and morally bankrupt institution it truly is.

I heard this yesterday about Mary J. and thought, 'Are they talking about prednasone??'

Does this mean they have to give back their Grammys?

If all the artists that have won Grammys who have also used drugs were to give them back (the Grammys I mean, not the drugs) then the only one who'd have one is Mitch Miller.

I was kidding.

But since so many regard singing and music as a competitive sport these days, it seemed like a fitting remark.

Well anyway, 50 Cent has zero Grammys. Timbaland only has one because he produced a dance record for Justin Timberlake. Mary J. does have 6 Grammys though.

I know you were girl!

But it got me to thinking: Maybe Eugene O'Neill should give back his Pulitzers--he was a drunk...while we're at it, let's discount the achievements of Freud, Poe, Hemingway, Williams...

I think Robert Downey, Jr. should give back his Oscar nomination. He's a mess!

robbiej: My thought exactly! Do you know how many B'way singers get steroid shots when they lose their voices? I know tons of singers in LA who do it all the time. I never have had to, but I have been on prednisone in pill form a couple of times for my asthma (When I've had bronchitis or other such complications.)

Gonna read the article, now...

K...if Downey gives his back, then Bing Crosby and Joan should too--they're child abusers...dead, but abusive.

What about that Bette Davis? She treated B.D. kind of shabby. Dig her up and make her give 'em back.

Erica,

Ahh...the pill form of prednisone (I spelled it wrong initally!). I only took it once, I believe. I was doing a proudction of A CLOCKWORK ORANGE that was brutual on my voice in a theatre with HIDEOUS air-conditioning. Totally lost my voice and needed that magical, but dangerous, little pills!

Yeah, I don't like 'em. I haven't had to take any in quite a while...the last time was when I had to go the ER for my asthma in 2005, and then they only gave me 3 pills to get through the next few days. But once, back in 2003, I had to be on them for almost a month (because of bronchitis), and it was AWFUL. I felt cranky and just sort of generally annoyed all the time, and I gained weight, etc. Yuck. So, they're not tempting for me, at least. re: 50 Cent, Timbaland AND Mary J.

I hear ya, girl!

Actually...I just remembered that I was on a second round back in June...for a very intense sinus infection. Did me no good. But I could hit a 'C' with no problem!

I have friends who pop them like Tic Tacs.

Y'all sound like Neely O'Hara having a conversation with herself in the sanitarium.

LOL!

To be clear, robbiej and I are talking about our experiences with Prednisone, not Human Growth Hormone, which is what these "stars" have allegedly been taking.

robbiej: I know, me too! I don't get it. It's not good for you in the long run. AT. ALL.

The only human growth hormone I take is Cheetos.
