Gaga's VMA Dress: It's Real Meat!

09/14/2010 at 11:00 AM ET


She’s a meat-loving little monster! Lady Gaga may have worn three over-the-top outfits at Sunday’s Video Music Awards, but it was her third and final dress—made out of real meat and designed by Franc Fernandez–that got butchered the most. Gaga sat down with Ellen DeGeneres for the season 8 premiere of The Ellen DeGeneres Show on Monday to explain the controversial creation: “Well, it’s certainly no disrespect to anyone that is vegan or vegetarian. I, as you know, am the most judgment-free human being on the earth,” Gaga told Ellen. “However, it has many interpretations, but for me this evening, if we don’t stand up for what we believe in, if we don’t fight for our rights, pretty soon we’re going to have as much rights as the meat on our bones,” said the songstress, who then held up the recent Vogue Japan cover on which she wore a meat bikini. “And I am not a piece of meat!” Up next for Gaga? Possibly the vegetarian-friendly bikini designed by Ellen Degeneres. Check it out in this video clip below. Tell us: What do you think of Lady Gaga’s meaty fashions? –Jessie Goldberg

I dont care what statement you are trying to make, it is just disgusting to have meat draped all over you. It had to stink and feel nasty. I hope it had some kind of liner, but you would still be touching meat! That is decaying tissue hanging all over her body. Give me a break. Just show your talent to get publicity, you dont have to be weird.

Would not need crazy outfits and gimmicks if she could actually sing….just sayin’

Yuck. Her reasoning doesn’t make sense. I started out supporting Gaga, then tolerating and that is starting to wear thin. Her act is getting old.

Could’ve shoved a wooden stick in her and had a Gaga-kabob.

Is that a man or a woman?

The red of the meat brings out her green eyes.
