Toilets: great for flushing, even better when deep-sea diving for hidden jewels—at least if you're a guest of Lady Gaga's.

The newest American Horror Story star opened up to Billboard about suicide prevention efforts as part of the magazine's Philanthropy 2015 issue. Admirable? Of course, but there was mention of one particular bullying battleground that drew a confusing metaphor from Mother Monster.

"There is something in the way that we are now, with our cellphones and people are not looking at each other and not being in the moment with each other, that kids feel isolated," she said, adding that the consequent risks of depression and anxiety are very real. "They read all of this extremely hateful language on the internet."


"The internet is a toilet. It is. It used to be a fantastic resource—but you have to sort through s--- to find the good stuff."

The good stuff! The good stuff in your toilet. The good toilet stuff. The toilet treasure.

In fairness, she makes some great points, but we're going to go ahead and file this under the swing-and-a-miss tab in the great, big anthology of unclear metaphors. Unless, of course, there's a tiara beneath her tank lid, or her ballcock's gilded.
