Lady Gaga called a 'slut'... for smoking pot?

Staten Island borough president James P. Molinaro is not a Lady Gaga fan. The 81-year-old grandfather likely does not have Born This Way cued up on his iPod 8-track, but his bigger issue with the pop star is the fact that she smoked the pot on stage during a recent show in Amsterdam. So Molinaro, who is promoting a new neighborhood anti-drug program, took her to task for toking, calling her a… slut?

“We have to understand that there’s a tremendous influence with our youth, which I didn’t have as a youth,” said Molinaro, according to the Staten Island Advocate. “And there’s the influence right there. Stop glorifying the drug use. There’s Gaga. Here’s this … this … I would call her a slut. This slut is influencing many, many children.”

The New York Times called on Molinaro to explain his choice of words, but he argued semantics, claiming that the word slut doesn’t have to have a sexual meaning and could also simply mean “improper conduct.”

“Looking up the word ‘slut’ to see if it was properly used before I used it, it said ‘improper conduct,’” Molinaro told the Times. “Now, isn’t it improper for someone who is so high profile to be smoking reefer in front of children? I have grandnieces that idolize her — 12 and 13 years old — and it’s ridiculous. You see these young girls walking around on Halloween with her outfit on.”

Oh, Mr. Molinaro, haven’t we all been a little “improper” now and then? If the Random House dictionary is the final arbiter of such loaded word use, then let he who is not a “slut” cast the first stone.
