Oh, to see Lady Gaga and Cyndi Lauper holding hands on "Good Morning America" while talking about condomless sex! To behold the "Pokerface" songstress preface a statement with "I don't know if this is too much for morning TV" and continue on without pause! To hear Lauper appropriate the Boy Scouts motto for her safe sex agenda! What a delight.

The two divas have teamed up for M-A-C's "Viva Glam" campaign to promote HIV/AIDS awareness, particularly among women. Their message: It isn't a male disease and condoms are not solely a man's responsibility. Gaga, wearing a glittering crown/architectural marvel atop her head, explained in an inconsistent, Maddona-like accent:

Everyone has that phone call -- and I mean I don't know if this is too much for morning TV -- but that phone call of "Oh my gosh you wouldn't believe what I did last night," and "I was so stupid I didn't use a condom," and there is all this laughter on the phone, because I have gotten those phone calls, and it is our jobs as friends to one another to say, "I don't know why you are laughing because it is very serious."

Unfortunately, I missed the rest of what she said because I was distracted by her big, blinking anime eyes (which I'm pretty sure are delivering their very own message via Morse code). Lauper added: "It is like Boy Scouts. Their motto is my motto. Be prepared. Always be prepared." Yes, indeed. So ladies, go out and buy one of these new lipstick shades benefiting the M-A-C AIDS Fund -- or, you know, just get yourself a box of condoms. (Shout out to Jezebel for the heads-up.)
