"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.
