Despite her provocative flesh-baring costumes, the singer extols the virtues of celibacy, telling fans: Dont have sex
Despite her often provocative, flesh-baring outfits, Lady Gaga is urging her fans to stay celibate, saying: ‘Don’t have sex.’
And it seems the Telephone singer has even shocked herself by so publicly extolling the virtues of abstinence.
‘I can’t believe I’m saying this, but don’t have sex,’ she told MTV.
‘I’m single right now, and I’ve chosen to stay single because I don’t have the time to get to know anybody,’ she continued.
‘So it’s okay not to have sex. I’m celibate. Celibacy’s fine.’
The 24-year-old described her abstinence as something she wanted to ‘celebrate‘ with her ‘little monsters‘ – the affectionate term she often uses to describe her fans.
‘It’s okay to be whomever it is that you want to be,’ she said.
‘You don’t have to have sex to feel good about yourself, and if you’re not ready, don’t do it.’
But for those fans who are ready, Gaga’s all about the safe sex…
‘If you are ready, there are free condoms given away at my concerts when you’re leaving!’
Gaga explained that she wanted to stress her celibacy message due to the steady rate in the rise of HIV infection among women worldwide.
‘This is a disease that affects everyone, not just the gay community, and right now it’s mostly affecting women,’ she said.
Lady Gaga is currently fronting MAC’s Viva Glam campaign with 80s idol Cyndi Lauper, which supports global HIV and AIDS projects.
