Safe Sex

Yesterday, Tila released her new song. The title is "I Fucked the DJ". After reading the lyrics, this article about Lady Gaga I had read earlier popped into my head. Love her or hate her, you have to hand it to Gaga for what she said in the article and what she does to keep her fans safe.

"Something I do want to celebrate with my fans is that it's okay to be whomever it is that you want to be," Lady Gaga said in an interview with London's Daily Mail. "You don't have to have sex to feel good about yourself, and if you're not ready, don't do it."

And, if you're lucky enough to score a ticket to one of her concerts, the "Bad Romance" singer says you'll get a free reminder of her personal message of celibacy.

"If you are ready, there are free condoms given away at my concerts when you're leaving," she said.

When you have as big of an impression on the youth of today as Lady Gaga, it's great to see this type of thing being promoted.

Now, on the other end of the spectrum, let us get back to the lyrics of Tila Tequila's new song...

I fucked the DJ, his dick was real big
Spun me right round like a record and he killed it
I took it in like a champ I'm a real chick

Cream in my middle like an Oreo
Got you on rock ride cock like the rodeo

Motherfuckas love him, got him 1 2 steppin
And I put the pussy on him raw, no protection

Glorifying unsafe sex? Maybe if protection was used while having sex with this DJ, there wouldn't be a creamy Oreo substance in her middle.

The average age of Tila's small, but very naive and impressionable, fan base is about 15 years old. We cannot stop them from listening to Tila's songs, which promote sex without a condom and one night stands, but we can hope that they are also fans of Lady Gaga and are listening to the message that she is sending out: You don't have to have sex, but if you do, please use protection!

Tila is currently on a "tour" of New York City to promote this song. Last night, this included Tila stripping while her ever classy group of friends (Garry Sun, Leo Madrid, and Anthony "Mr. Bradshaw" Suncin) egged on this behavior, even filming and taking pictures of it.

Tila doesn't have much time left in New York to promote her song, but you can contact her remaining stops. Let them know exactly what her lyrics are saying and what she is promoting.

If you have had unprotected sex and you would like to find out information on testing for HIV and other STDs, please visit the CDC website Visit LoveToKnow to find out where to get free condoms.

I respect you for putting out the message of safe sex and providing the links to CDC and lovetoknow.

She keeps making light of and joking about things that are just not funny. Miscarriages, pregnancy, unprotected sex, abuse, etc.

I really wish all of these media outlets would do the right thing and stop giving her a platform to promote these disgusting messages on.

I have never commented on Tila related blogs. I read this and a couple others.

THIS post is worth everything. Thank you.

I am not one to endorse or promote censorship. I think Tila's song is horrible in every possible way: the music is poor, the lyrics are poor as well, and the message, as you pointed out, is frankly dangerous. Yet, I will not say it must go away. Let kids listen to it. But give kids information as well. In fact, information should be available regardless of stupid songs like this.

Honestly, I do think the song is SO bad it won't make it. And then trying to censor it may end up giving it more publicity than it deserves. I don't know.

Thank you, anyway. Your blog rocks.

Omg. This song actually makes me physically sick. Its bad enough to make even Lil Kim blush. Tila Tequito is absolutely vile and disgusting.

Your blog is amazing. Your posts address the issue at hand, and you objectively present the facts without resorting to name-calling. I try to visit this site as often as I can because it really is a breath of fresh air.

Love it - you're doing a great job, keep up the excellent work! :)

also, i had no idea her fan base was so young. that's really sad and sick that she keeps glorifying things like sex, unprotected or otherwise, stripping, rape, etc. with a such a young fan base.

What I find funny, is that she felt the need to do a radio version. It won't be played on the radio here in LA.

I googled last night to try and find out how the song is doing on itunes, one of the links on the first page, was to her website and it was dated April 9th (I think) and I was like cool... its a video too and it was 2009. This song is not even new.

I, personally, prefer Chips Ahoy! Chocolate Chip cookies.

So, what would the lyrics be for that?

"Got chocolate nipples like a Chips Ahoy!"

That sounds much sexier to me.

She is just plain old trash touring dive bars and the only people interviewing her are nobodies. They probably just want to see how stupid she is in person.

I laughed sooo hard when I saw those Tila lyrics, LOL LOL. My god. Not to mention the rhyming sucks and I can't imagine it would flow together all that well.

The lyrics to her song are just horrible. MY guess is maybe 50 people downloaded it. I wish there was a way to find out.
