Lady GaGa Exchanges Meat Dress for Meat Corset
And we offer some vegetarian-friendly suggestions for future outfits

Lady GaGa appeared on stage in Bucharest earlier this week wearing a corset made entirely of meat. But what would an outfit be without matching shoes? In typical GaGa fashion, she coupled the fleshy costume with a pair of matching meat heels. Lady GaGa went on to don the same frock in Amersterdam as she lit a joint on stage and proceeded to throw up mid-show. The singer first debuted her now infamous all-meat ensembles at the 2010 VMAs in the form of a modest meat dress. Later that same year wore a meat bikini on the cover of Vogue Japan and a steak dress in Tokyo. 

Peta has spoken out against GaGa’s meat stunts by saying, “Meat is the decomposing flesh of a tormented animal who didn’t want to die, and after a few hours under the TV lights, it would smell like the rotting flesh it is and likely be crawling in maggots–not too attractive, really.”

Ellen DeGeneres (who is vegan herself), gave Lady GaGa a veggie bikini while suggesting she try it next time she wants to make a statement.

Gaga accepted the veggie bikini with a laugh. She later went on to issue a statement to her Vegan and Vegetarian monsters saying:

I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, especially i have never been able to afford a nice one, but this does not mean my morals are rigid and that I won’t bend at the sight of an absolute art piece of a coat. I have no chains about this. You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance. But I am truly sorry to fans who are upset by this, its a fair and applaudable feeling about the health and safety of animals. I respect your views, please respect mine.”

Vegetarian “monsters” have been forced to take GaGa’s respectful words with a large grain of salt. In the past she has tweeted: “For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real … please don’t forget to credit the designer HERMES. Thank You! LOVE, gaga.”

We’re going to assume this means her many fur and meat outfits are, in fact, 100% real. With this knowledge we’d like to give GaGa a few suggestions for future outfits in the form of some very fashionable vegetables.

 

1. A lettuce dress

2. A broccolli purse

3. A tomato hat 

We’re sure Katy Perry would be willing to give GaGa some tips.
