Lady Gaga Takes Dig at NYC Politician for "Slut" Swipe, Shows Off Her Body Revolution Onstage

The pop star has cheekily responded to a politician's skanky attack on her after he called her a "slut" during a bizarre rant in New York City.
But first, some context: Earlier this week, the politician in question, Staten Island Borough President James Molinaro, lashed out at the 26-year-old for recently smoking pot onstage in Amsterdam, saying, "This slut is influencing many, many children.

That tirade immediately prompted another NYC politico, Manhattan Borough President Scott Stringer, to rush to Mother Monster's defense, calling her a "symbol of individuality and artistic expression."

And it was that shout-out from Stringer that eventually prompted Gaga to diss her slut-slinging foe.
In a tweet to Stringer on Thursday, Gaga thanked the politician for his props, writing, "To @scottmstringer of Manhattan, thanku for your support of my activism as a new yorker," and then adding, "You show political integrity + a modern vernacular"—clearly a subversive dig at Molinaro.

Chalk it up as another vindication for the pop star, who recently addressed criticism over her weight by tweeting a skimpy photo of herself with the caption "Bulimia and anorexia since I was 15" and encouraging her Little Monsters to "join a body revolution."
She put that body revolution on full display in Zurich this week when she took the stage in skimpy outfits and proudly showed off her figure, days after urging fans to "be brave and post a photo of you that celebrates your triumph over insecurities."
