Lady Gaga Promotes Celibacy?

I’m all for promoting abstinence, especially among teenagers. But Lady Gaga? That’s like Michael Moore promoting proper diet and exercise.

The 24-year-old singer who's made a career with songs that glorify carnal pleasures told London's that she is currently under a self-imposed sex ban and that others should consider a similar posture.

"I can't believe I'm saying this — don't have sex. I'm single right now and I've chosen to be single because I don't have the time to get to know anybody," she said while visiting England to help promote MAC's Viva Glam campaign, which supports global HIV and AIDS projects. "So it's OK not to have sex, it's OK to get to know people. I'm celibate, celibacy's fine."

Just to clarify, this is the woman promoting celibacy:

“Don’t have sex,” and “I wanna take a ride on your disco stick.” Sounds like conflicting messages to me.
