Lady Gaga is making lots of news this week. First, she responded to critics that slammed her about a recent 25-pound weight gain. Now, she's responding, albeit indirectly, to a NY politician's rant during which he referred to her as a "slut".
At first, Gaga didn't have much to say when Staten Island Burrough President, James Molinaro, went on a tirade meant to tear down the singer. While he had a point when he said her pot smoking stint in Amsterdam wasn't great role modeling for her young fans, he lost it by calling her the "S" word.
Some people agree with Molinaro on his point, but disagree that makes the Mama Monster a "slut". After all, she's the same women who started an anti-bullying campaign to protect her youthful fans. She's also the same woman who took a stand this week against body dysmorphic disorder, which causes many teens to turn to bulimia and anorexia.
At least another NY politician came to Lady Gaga's defense. His name is Scott Stringer. He called the popular singer a "symbol of individuality an artistic expression." He's right. While people may not agree with everything she does, the phrase fits her.
Gaga contacted Stringer via Twitter, thanking him for his support. She also took the opportunity to take a swing at Molinaro by referring to Stringer as someone with "political integrity" as well someone capable of using the "modern vernacular". While it didn't address her foe directly, the point was still perfectly clear.
It's a pity Molinaro didn't show integrity by attacking Gaga on the issue, rather than resorting to cheap shots. Unfortunately, it seems some men resort to calling women they don't like names. The most common are "sluts", "bitches" or "whores". Truthfully, it makes it seem as though they don't really know the meaning of those words.
At least Mother Monster didn't get in the mud with Molinaro. Perhaps she's just too much of a lady.
