Staten Island's James Molinaro recently called Lady Gaga 'a slut' for smoking marijuana on stage in Amsterdam. The Staten Island Borough president does not agree with the performer's public drug use and states she is glorifying drug use among her fans. Using such a strong term to refer to any woman including the pop star, who's real name is Stefani Germanotta and was born in New York, is rude.
According NY DailyNews, Molinaro stated
"There's Gaga. Here's this ... this ... I would call her a slut. This slut is influencing many, many children."
Further adding that he does not know why family members like the singer by stating, "My niece has two daughters, 12 and 14. They love this woman. Why? Why?"
Gaga lit a joint onstage at a concert in Amsterdam and proceeded to smoke it. In Amsterdam, smoking pot is legal. This action does not make for 'a slut', but Mr. Molinaro surely knows that -- or does he?
Maybe mother monster is influencing many children as Staten Island's James Molinaro stated, but this is nothing new. Her image is never a positive influence for the under 18 crowd. To call her 'a slut' for smoking marijuana though just seems -- wrong. Just as Mr. Molinaro stated Lady Gaga was, two wrongs do not make a right, or 'a slut', do they?
