A US politician has called Lady Gaga 'a slut'.

James Molinaro, Borough President of Staten Island in New York City, used the term in reference to the singer openly smoking marijuana onstage at a concert last week in Amsterdam. According to Staten Island Advance - via
Billboard - he also said the Gaga should be 'hit'. Molinaro said:

"There's Gaga. Here's this, this, I would call her a slut. This slut is influencing many, many children. My niece has two daughters, 12 and 14, they love this woman. Why? Why? So we have a job to do with these actresses, these actors, these ball players."

He continued: "They use drugs as if it's nothing. We shouldn't praise them. We shouldn't honour them. We should really hit them... To me, she's not an actress, she's a slut, in the pure word, in the pure meaning of the word."

Upon receiving critisicm for his use of the slur, Molinaro defened his comments and stated: "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. What's the big deal about it? Are you excited because she's female? There's males that are sluts too…"

This week Lady Gaga launched a 'Body Revolution' campaign. The singer posted a page on her Little Monsters social networking site titled 'Body Revolution 2013', encouraging fans to embrace and share their perceived flaws.

Shortly before launching the initiative Gaga addressed recent reports about her supposed weight gain, writing: "My weight/loss/gain since I was child has tormented me. No amount of help has ever healed my pain about it. But YOU have," she wrote.
