STOCKHOLM, SWEDEN – The winner of the 2012 Eurovision Song Contest, Loreen, has admitted to using the natural-made drug Ayahuasca. Ayahuasca, discovered by indigenous people in South America, has hallucinogenic properties, with users reported to have had spiritual revelations.

Loreen says the drug helped get in touch with her spiritual side. She first used it four years ago, prior to her Eurovision victory, when she traveled to Mexico to partake in an ayahuasca ceremony. However, experts have warned that the drug could be harmful and can cause both pleasant and unpleasant hallucinations.
