Published Oct 22, 2019Iggy Pop recently delivered his new album called Free, and he's continuing to become even more free by getting things off his chest. For example, the veteran rocker recently revealed he once smoked spiderwebs to try to get high.
While appearing on The Jonathan Ross Show, the performer explained his famous lust for life once included downing the silky cobwebs left behind by his eight-legged friends.
After Pop revealed he once stuck his tongue in an electrical outlet to get buzzed, he added, "I tried spiderwebs, too." Asking for clarification, Ross asked him if Pop meant that he ate the spiderwebs. "Well, I tried to smoke them, but you know you've got to start somewhere," Pop concluded.
As for how dank the spiderwebs went down, Pop added that "they were harsh."
Below, you'll find footage of Pop discussing his spidey origin story. As an added bonus, we also found a video of some guy smoking an actual spider.
