(Newser) – Lady Gaga—you know, the pop star who rarely wears pants and sings about her desire to “take a ride on your disco stick”—is touting safe sex, or at least safer sex, and Andy Pemberton is annoyed. Not at the message: What she said, at an AIDS charity function yesterday, was not to have sex with anyone you “can’t get to know.” But at the way she said it: "Even Lady Gaga can be celibate." So whatever she's doing you're supposed to do, too? he grumbles on the Huffington Post.

Though her advice is decent, it’s “simply megalomania disguised as social concern.” Gaga admitted at the event she doesn’t have time to be sexually active right now, so, Pemberton wonders, if she “decides to resume her bisexual habits would she recommend that, too?” The best way to deal with the situation, he concludes: “Whatever celebrities tell you to do, do the opposite. Happy shagging.”
