Just when you thought Lady Gaga was out of outrageous outfits, she has come back with a fresh outfit ready to court a bigger controversy.
The renowned singer recently appeared in the Vogue Hommes Japan Vol. 5, wearing a bikini made entirely out of raw meat. The singer is well known for sporting bizarre outfits (both on and off-stage), but this time she has gone a bit too far.
In the alleged picture, Gaga is shown nearly nude posing with her blond hair drawn back. The singing diva covers her modesty with raw chunks of meat in the controversial photograph. Quite expectedly, the photograph has drawn the wrath of PETA, who condemned the bikini and said that it was unethical to say the least.
PETA is well known for snubbing and suing celebrities who dare to sport fur coats, suede jackets in the name of fashion. Thanks to her new outfit, it seems Lady Gaga has painted a big "Bull's Eye" on her back for PETA. The PETA president said that Lady Gaga is well known for being outlandish but her latest misdemeanor is downright unforgivable.
The PETA president went on record to say "Meat is something you want to avoid putting on or in your body." We are sure that PETA's rants will not stop Lady Gaga as she might give them her "Poker Face" for these remarks.
Pop star Lady Gaga has made the headlines again for wearing a dress made of slabs of meat to the MTV Video Music Awards in LA. So what is she trying to say with her latest creation?
It could be art, it could be fashion, it might even be just an attention-grabbing stunt.
When pop star Lady Gaga turned up to the MTV Music Video Awards ceremony wearing a dress apparently made of meat - with matching bag, fascinator and shoes - millions were left baffled and intrigued in equal measure.
The dress has invoked the fury of animal rights group Peta, as well as accusations that it could not surely have been made of real meat (Gaga insists it was).
But the garment has also provoked a flurry of head-scratching from pundits attempting to work out what it means. Is it a defiant feminist gesture? An artistic statement? A commentary on the fashion world? All of these, or none of them?
Speaking after the awards, Gaga said the dress was open to "many interpretations" - including, she said, a statement about the US military's attitude to homosexuals. Here, a range of experts offer their thoughts.
