Lady Gaga Lashes out at Animal Rights Activists who use “Violent” Campaigns

Lady Gaga is still unapologetic about THAT meat dress...


We all remember when Lady Gaga rolled up to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards in a dress that was made entirely out of meat (how could we forget, in fairness!).

Well needless to say, Gaga felt the wrath of a few animal rights groups. And she felt it again recently when she stepped out in an ensemble that featured fur. Was it real fur? Was it fake fur? No one seems to know, but Gaga has blasted animal rights campaigners who use “violent, abusive and childish campaigns.”

The Belfast Telegraph reports that Gaga has expressed her opinions on activism groups who use “violent” and “abusive” campaigns to get their messages across.

“I want you to know that I care deeply about your feelings and views, and I will always support your philosophies about life. I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for ANY CAUSE,” wrote Gaga on her website.

“Particularly one that I respect. ‘Animal Rights.’ I am choosing not to comment on whether  or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I would think it hypercritical not to acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, ‘kermit’ and not to mention the meat, that I have already worn,” she added.

Gaga shocked animal rights groups back in 2010 with her meat dress.

Gaga then went on to express her views on the topic of wearing fur/meat by writing: “You see a carcass, I see a museum piece de resistance.”

“I respect your views, please respect mine. And to campaigners, save your flour to make bread for the children who are hungry. And Kim Kardashian is fabulous,” she said, making reference to the fact that Kim Kardashian was ‘flour-bombed’ by animal rights campaigners earlier this year.

Anyway, what do you think ladies? Is Gaga just asking for trouble by making these claims? And, more importantly, would you ever rock a dress made entirely of meat?
