Lady Gaga Holds "Whore" Teacup"? Truth In Advertising?

By Robert Paul Reyes

"SHE better be careful not to pull this mug out the cupboard when her gran comes over for a brew.

While most of us have china with floral designs emblazoned on them, LADY GAGA has `whore` written on hers.

A talented singer/songwriter of the caliber of Lady Gaga, shouldn`t rely on cheap gimmicks and skanky outfits to make an impression on the public.

To state it simply and succinctly, a lady will delicately pick up a tea cup with an understated floral design, a whore will brandish a tea cup with "whore" spelled out in bold letters.

Lady Gaga has had numerous wardrobe malfunctions, she has a penchant for wearing panties and no pants, and she frequently poses nude.

Yes, she`s a whore. Dressing like a skank isn`t pushing the envelope, it`s not avant garde, it`s not an expression of female empowerment, it`s being a whore.

Lady Gaga isn`t being original, taking the whore`s road to pop culture success is played out.
