Lady Gaga: 'I'm Celibate,' Is Compared To Palin

Celibate Lady Gaga

Nobody knows what to make of her candid thoughts on safe sex in a breast-revealing shirt.

Lady Gaga is talking the talk of a celibate person, but for all intensive purposes is certainly not walking the walk (or dressing the dress)... What with all the dildo sporting and breast revealing happenings during her time in Merry Olde England.

So, first of all, let's stop comparing her to the Palins (as they do here and here). Speaking candidly about safe sex or the lack of one's own sex life does not a Bristol or Sarah make.

"Even Lady Gaga can be celibate," says the 23-year-old star to the UK's Mirror. "You don't have to have sex to be loved." And you don't have to not be having sex to be compared to the thrillers from Wasilla.

"I'm single because I don't have the time," she said. "You know what? It's OK."

Keeping in mind that she was speaking to women at an AIDS charity-related function, here's what she also said that got a few people comparing her to the 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee and her daughter:

"If you can't get to know them, you shouldn't have sex with them. You are not invincible," adding that women should carry condoms and be regularly tested for sexually transmitted diseases.

"Orgasms are the biggest obstacles for women. Sex should be fun, beautiful and colorful, but women get the short end of the stick. We're just receivers. We can't talk about sex, we can't sing about sex."

Hmm... So are all anti-Palin people sex addicts who eschew condoms and AIDs tests? When did speaking honestly about sexual health become a right-of-center, populist talking point?
