Lady Gaga and VMA dress are not the same
HollywoodNews.com: Lady Gaga laughed off the controversy surrounding her VMAs meat dress during a gig.
The off-the-wall singer told fans she did not see what all the fuss was about and claimed it was no different to wearing leather. “What’s everyone’s big problem with my meat dress?” she asked during her Tuesday night show at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia.
“Haven’t they seen me wear leather? Next time I’ll wear a tofu dress and the soy milk police will come after me.” Gaga, 24, was slammed by animal rights organizations last weekend after she accepted the MTV Video Music Award for ‘Video of the Year’ wearing a bizarre dress made out of flank steak.
‘The People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals’ condemned the outfit, referring to it as “flesh from a tortured animal”. The singer, however, has said that she wore it to encourage people to stand up for what they believe in and to show people that she was “not a piece of meat”.
“It is certainly no disrespect to anyone that is vegan or vegetarian,” she told Ellen DeGeneres the day after the awards show.
“As you know, I am the most judgment-free human being on the earth. However, it has many interpretations. 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.”
