Lady Gaga: un-fur-givable!

Lady Gaga: un-fur-givable!

Now, I'm a massive fan of Lady Gaga's music,[1] and I think that she's got a lot of important things to say.[2] But jeez she makes some shocking decisions when it comes to what she wears. Her latest monster balls-up is wearing fur. As if that's not bad enough - you should hear her bumbling justification for it.

You might remember a couple of Gaga's other fashion crimes. Her meat bikini (blergh-kini?) springs to mind immediately. This time she's draped herself in a fur coat in the middle of the northern summer. She defended herself by saying that while normal people would "see a carcass, I see a museum piece de resistance". She goes on to describe it as an "art piece". Really? It looks more like the carpet a mate of mine used to have in the back of his station wagon.

Look closely at the photo - see the adorable little dog there? If I was that dog ... I'd be freakin' out! After all, millions of dogs are killed each year for their fur. I wonder whether Lady Gaga would have looked at the coat differently if it had been made out of that little guy. A recent segment on Today Tonight showed that fur products being sold here in Australia contain dog and cat fur, even though it's illegal to import.

To make fur clothes, animals are beaten, anally electrocuted, drowned, or poisoned. Some are even skinned alive! When she was criticised for wearing fur, Lady Gaga responded by saying, "I do not support violent, abusive campaigns for ANY CAUSE". It's just a bummer that she DOES seem fine with violence and abuse against animals, I guess.

For a singer with so many fans, hopefully one day Lady Gaga will figure out that fur is never in fashion.

[1] That's not true.
[2] Neither is that.

There are so many reasons why I hate Lady Gaga.
Not only is her music terrible, she promotes the worst messages to her fans.

Haha, I just noticed your asterisks then. >.<
I have to say the fact you're not a fan of her music is defiantly a relief. tongue

Is she wearing it because it's fur or because it's 'Armani' fur? I'm sure the price tag makes all the difference.

Ha! Yesterday I signed a petition to ask Lady GaGa why she said she hated fur but is wearing it.
It is on Peta2.

And I hate Lady GaGa in general. Kids listen to her inappropriate songs. ( They played her songs at my middle-school party! )

While I'm not that violent a person, I'm ashamed to say that my instincts are trying to tell me it's these kinds of people that should be smothered in their sleep.
The meat dress is one thing, but this? I can safely say she will never receive my support in my lifetime.

These 'fashion' choices she makes diguist me I kinda like some of her music because it's something you can listen to but what she actually says in the songs and wears in her music videos sends the wrong messages!

I most certainly do not approve of fur but I am confused as to why leather is acceptable????

Does she know a rotten apple can be classed as art these days? I think she should go back and find some true, ethically, humanely made art. happy
