Staten Island borough president James Molinaro is riled up about Gaga. At the launch of an anti-drug campaign Monday, Molinaro blamed Gaga for encouraging kids to use drugs, citing recent pictures of the singer smoking weed. “To me, she’s not an actress. She’s a slut in the pure meaning of the word,” he said. NY1 has video.

First of all, you’re right, Molinaro: she’s not an actress, she’s a singer, despite what you might have heard. Second of all, using loaded, sexist language is never a good look, especially at an event aimed directly at influencing kids and teenagers. Third, she was smoking weed, in Amsterdam, where it’s perfectly acceptable. The kids are doing it with or without Gaga, and why do you care? Try focusing some of that righteous anger on your borough’s well-documented prescription drug-abuse problem.
