Lady Gaga, no longer content with simply being gawked at like a piece of meat (much less filleted like one by critics), now has taken to wearing it on this month’s juicy cover of Japanese Men’s Vogue!
The cover photo, shot by American Apparel’s preferred pervert softcore porn photographer extraordinaire, Terry Richardson, shows everyone’s favorite Lady with pieces of what appear to be flank steak ‘strategically draped’ over our favorite lady naughty parts.
As per usual with anything Gaga relevant, the media is once again outraged and surprised.
UK Daily Mail deserves the most credit though, for at least giving ‘being shocked’ a try (even if they couldn’t quite manage an exclamation point): Just when you thought it was impossible to be any more outrageous, Lady GaGa has gone further than ever with her latest shocking outfit.
Sigh… Interestingly the ones who you would expect to be yelling the loudest, animal rights activists, have largely conceded that even they don’t find Lady Gaga’s latest adventures to media whoredom particularly shocking.
Peta president, Ingrid Newkirk: Lady Gaga’s job is to do outlandish things, and this certainly qualifies as outlandish because meat is something you want to avoid putting on or in your body.’
Nice job separating the fat here, Ingrid, are you sure that you’re not getting a bit of practice at this?
Still, amidst reports that Gaga was hospitalized six times last year for starving herself to fit into stage outfits, has the singer – who has famously declared that “pop stars should not eat” — been too busy wearing her food to eat it? And, if so, why make such an ‘outrageous’ (!) fashion statement?
Our dearest Ingrid, la presidenta of Peta, contends, ‘No matter how beautifully it is presented, flesh from a tortured animal is flesh from a tortured animal.’
‘Tortured animals,’ huh? Shouldn’t pop stars also count? Surely few groups of people (Gaga included) have been portrayed as quite so tortured or treated as inhumanely.
Could this be what our starving lovely little Lady really be saying?
