While attending the Monday launch of a campaign focused on getting teens away from drugs and alcohol, Staten Island Borough President James Molinaro singled out entertainer Lady Gaga for her alleged drug use, and called the international pop star a "slut."

At the St. George event, Molinaro blamed the media and celebrities for promoting a specific lifestyle, and displayed photos in which Lady Gaga appears to be abusing drugs.

"To me, she's not an actress, she is a slut in the pure, in the pure meaning of the word," said the borough president.

NY1 reached out to Lady Gaga for a comment, but did not receive a response Monday.
