The unlikely factor that ended Storm Large’s addiction

Singer, reality star and comedian Storm Large may be best known to audiences as a former contestant of CBS’s reality TV show Rock Star: Supernova. But in her new memoir, the singer releases all her demons, including a former heroin addiction.

In “Crazy Enough,” Large divulges she first tried heroin for a guy. She also explained this reasoning during an interview with Rosie O’Donnell on The Rosie O’Donnell Show before its last show.

“If I get screwed up like this, he’ll love me — really,” Large says of the reasoning to O’Donnell. “But so many girls feel like that — if just somebody loves them then they’ll be OK.”

In the end, it was the unlikely factor of vanity that ended Large’s short addiction with heroin, she says. In the 90s, when the “heroin chic” look was in, Large says she didn’t look like that. In fact, she looked awful, even comparing her face to a “meatloaf.”

She says it’s amazing what vanity will make you do. And it made her make the decision to stop using.

In “Crazy Enough,” Large also delves into her childhood, her mother’s history with mental illness and other personal struggles.
