Lady Gaga apparently likes her attention-getting couture raw.
She’s posed naked, covered in slices of raw meat in the September issue of Vogue Hommes Japan. She matched her lipstick to the bloody creation and topped off the main course with a side of sirloin worn as a hat.
Naturally, those “meat is murder” folks at PETA are a bit bent out of shape about this. Although we’re not sure why because this photo certainly doesn’t promote the eating of meat. In fact, it’s quite turned us off steak tartare.
“Oh, 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,” PETA’s President, Ingrid Newkirk, tells the Daily News. But in truth, like most of Lady Gaga’s antics, wearing meat to get noticed is not a new idea.
]]> Tyra Banks was grilled on an open fire for covering “America’s Next Top Model” contestants in raw meat and posing them in a slaughterhouse for a 2008 photo shoot. And who can forget The Beatles controversial 1966 Yesterday and Today album cover — featuring the fab four grinning, covered in blood, meat parts and baby dolls? The album was given a different cover before being shipped to the US. But that didn’t stop Beatle fans from steaming off the new cover to see the original, making it a collector’s item. What do you think of Gaga’s sirloin sheath fashion statement? Pure Grand Guignol or time to go vegan?
