Lady Gaga wore her meat-frock on live TV on the VMAs last night, and we had to find out what PETA would have to say about this.

You just knew Lady Gaga would get people agog about her beefy dress last night — and those verbal samurai at PETA took their best cut yet.

Here’s what PETA chieftaness told us this morning:
In her line of  business, Lady Gaga has a hard time being “over the top,” and wearing a dress made from cuts of dead cows is offensive enough to bring comment, but someone should whisper in her ear that there are more people upset by butchery than impressed by it—and that means a lot of young people will not be buying her records if she keeps it up. On the other hand, maybe it was fake, and she’ll talk about that later.

Meat is the decomposing flesh of an abused animal who didn’t want to die, and after time spent under the TV lights, it would smell like the rotting flesh that it is and likely be crawling in maggots—not too attractive, really.

If Lady Gaga continues to wear meat, the perfect accessory would be a PETA vegetarian/vegan starter kit. A lot of people will take one look and want one. It’s sending lots of people to to download our kit, so I guess we should be glad.
