I thought we had enough of the raw meat thing when Lady Gaga posed in the meat bikini (see my blog post “Lady Gaga poses in raw meat “bikini” for Vogue Hommes Japan“); however, I guess we were wrong as Lady Gaga changed into a full 40 pounds of fleshy fashion at the MTV VMAs to accept her Video of the Year. In my opinion, the media has been caught up in the sensationalism of the matter with superficial headlines and stories, but I want to know a little more to share with you. So, here you go!
Was it real meat?
Who’s the designer?
Why she wore it?
“Well, it is certainly no disrespect to anyone that is vegan or vegetarian. As you know, I am the most judgment-free human being on the earth. However, it has many interpretations, but for me this evening … If we don’t stand up for what we believe in and if we don’t fight for our rights, pretty soon we’re going to have as much rights as the meat on our own bones. And I am not a piece of meat,” said Lady Gaga.
First of all, my stomach is churning as I have to endure all of these close up photos while researching details for this post. Secondly, Lady Gaga’s explanation is pure bullshit. She has proven to me that her fashion moments like this are not brilliant but just attention grabbers where an explanation is merely an afterthought.
Forget about PETA and vegans, I just think the act was completely tasteless (no pun intended) and wasteful. What comes to mind for me are all of the starving people in the world who would die for 40 pounds of meat (think about it, a quarter pounder is a pretty big burger), and she was completely wasteful and inconsiderate in the alleged name of fashion.
