When you’re Lady Gaga, getting called hurtful names is bound to happen. In the business she’s in you have to have “thick skin” in order to make it. But every now and then, you get comments so mean that require some special attention. With that said, a New York politician called Gaga a ‘slut’ and other nasty things, mainly because of the time she smoked pot onstage.

Borough President James Molinaro called Lady Gaga a ‘slut’ on Monday. He said, “There’s Gaga. Here’s this, this, I would call her a slut. This slut is influencing many, many children.”

Molinaro then gave the example of his niece and two daughters who worship Gaga. His big problem was that Gaga’s started smoking pot during one of her life performances last week (in Amsterdam).

“To me, she’s not an actress, she’s a slut, in the pure word, in the pure meaning of the word.”

The slut calling continued throughout his speech. Molinaro even went on to define the word, which he might’ve gotten wrong actually.

“A slut is someone that’s immoral or uses improper conduct. That’s the interpretation in the Random dictionary. So she’s using improper conduct. So she’s a slut.”

We get what he’s saying. Lady Gaga is a role model to little kids. But you know what, so are rappers and no one’s calling them out. No one. They’re music isn’t only crappy, it doesn’t even make sense. Molirano went on to say that it doesn’t matter if she’s male or female because males can be sluts too. Still, male performers don’t usually get called a ‘slut’ in the media, do they?

Whether you like Gaga’s music or not, one thing should be clear – kids aren’t influenced by one sole person. If parents have a huge problem with her, they should teach their kids to like better music. You’ll probably never see Florence Welch (of Florence and the Machine) smoking a joint on stage.

What do you think? Is it okay to call Lady Gaga a slut?
