Is this a drop ceiling in metal grids or is attached directly to the ceiling? Is stained in any way such as from water leaks or nicotine?

ceiling is just aged stain. changed out old florecent(sp)light fixture and can really see the difference.

Thanks, was just worried that it would peel off or soak in too much

I would prime it with and oil based stain killer type such as Zinsser Cover Stain which will hold back possible bleed through.
