Madonna: Getting high isn't for me

Madonna has told how she never got into drugs - because they "destroyed" her for "days and days".

The singer said that although she tried various substances, she didn't feel happy taking them because she wanted to look after her body.

The star, 56, told Mojo magazine: "My problem is I don't have the stamina to take drugs. I feel terrible afterwards. I'm destroyed for days and days.

"I can't do anything and I don't want that inconvenience in my life. So I don't feel it's worth the price you have to pay," she said.

"Even when I was younger and in my 20s, trying this and that ... I mean, I never really did that many drugs," she told the mag.

"I'm too big of a p***y. Also, I'm a dancer and I don't want to destroy my body. I want to feel physically good.

"So it never came naturally to me to get out of my brains or get so high that I couldn't get out of bed for three days. And that's what happened to me if I did anything."
