g.a.g.a. f.o.r. d.a.d.t.

M E A T   D R E S S   L O V I N G 

a few months ago, Lady Gaga posed for Japanese Vogue Hommes magazine in a meat dress, to start a movement about 
D O N ' T    A S K     D O N ' T    T E L L 
 . . . buuuut this wasn't enough. She needed bigger and better . . .

Yeah, now VMA's (video music awards) was a much better idea :)
International press baby!
She showed up on September 12th, 2010, wearing a dress made completely out of meat to accept her Best Music Video Award, for Bad Romance :)
This dress was designed and created by Franc Fernandez.

Gaga said
“   As you know I am the most judgement-free human being on the earth. If we don’t stand up for what we believe in and don’t stand up for our rights pretty soon we’re going to have as much rights as the meat on our bones.     

Though PETA (People Agaist the Etical Treatment of Animals) commented

No matter how beautifully it is presented, flesh from a tortured animal is flesh from a tortured animal,” PETA president Ingrid Newkirk said in a statement. “Meat represents bloody violence and suffering, so if that’s the look they were going for, they achieved it.”

And this was the audience's response:

And a few nights ago, Eva Longoria wore this 'Jamon Iberico' or Spanish Ham Dress at this year's EMA's (European music awards) is a 'rip off' style. Funny but umm, she was trying to make a point? Lady Gaga said she was offended by this - rightly so :)

The whole point that Lady Gaga was trying to across was the injustice of the Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy in the US Army
'If we don't ask about your sexual nature or preference, you don't tell or show it'

what nonsense???!! Where is the freedom?
Well, Thanks to her and her plead for the change - She has changed the policy . . .

This is an extract out of an article I read that sums up her rally speak :)

" When Lady Gaga called out to her little monsters and amped up her political campaign against "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" at a rally in Portland, ME, on Monday, people looked drunk on daydreams about Gaga for President. But that was before she confused people by comparing her famed meat dress to a political symbol for gay rights.

"Equality is the prime rib of America, but because I am gay, I don't get to enjoy the greatest cut of meat my country has to offer,"
Gaga proclaimed to the rally crowd.
"Shouldn't everyone deserve to wear the same meat dress I do?"

"      Maybe her meat dress metaphor had more fat than muscle, but Gaga got serious without her crazy outfits and strobe lights, and rallied a passionate crowd against the controversial ban on gays serving openly in the military, the New York Times reports It was the latest move in Gaga's campaign for gay rights since last week when she made the repeal of 17-year-old "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" her personal mission, and even called out Senator John McCain in a YouTube video.

Instead of keeping with the status quo, Gaga proposed a new law for gays in the military.

"If you don't like it, go home!"
Gaga yelled.

Like it or not, Gaga is up against some tough odds in Washington where the repeal of the policy faces a filibuster, but that didn't stop her from calling out undecided Senators Olympia Snowe and Susan Collins, both from Maine, and Scott Brown from nearby Massachusetts.       "

But this wasn't the first time Lady Gaga has shocked the world  . . . remember last year at the VMA's? When she started bleeding from her chest and then Hanged herself during a performance of Paparazzi?

annnd then she accepted her award like this:

This song is sbout how the media is killing the real world . . .
Was this the beginning of her change from POP star to Icon of the Activist world?
She is amazing.

As shocking as Lady Gaga's dress may have been, it's not the only Meat Dress in history . . .
these are some of the best ones I saw, though, not all are made out of flesh and blood

Vanitas: Flesh Dress for an Albino Anorectic

Tania Bruguera’s The Burden of Guilt

As a vegetarian, I'm against the killing of animals for A N Y  reason, but in this case, I'm not sure . . .
surely something so important needed a massive response, and by shocking people into oblivain, she caught the attention of the world.
Many think that 'Gay rights' are a joke but it's a serious matter . . .

As a straight woman, with many bisexual and homosexual friends around me, I believe in
f r e e d o m   o f   l o v e
regardless of sexual orentation, gender or colour.

tell me what you think . . . am I right to believe that she is making sense, that we need to change and open our eyes to the real world?

peace and love, world
peace and love


  1. The fact that Cher is still wearing "That Costume" is more disturbing to me than Gaga's Meat Dress!

  2. hehe Ta, thanks soo true . . .
    I was thinking that when I saw that picture - Did she think she was going to blow the world away?
    Gettin old now ;)

  3. I am not a follower of Gaga at all and I must admit I was rather shocked by her dress but I see the point. I am a vegetarian and love animals. But then, I am a Christian and while many people believe that Christians are very closed minded I hope that people realize as well that you everyone has to base their believe system on Truth! I know this probably sounds weird but I believe we live to show Jesus to the world..and so while I hate the fact that animals are being killed for no reason but for people to EAT them I believe I have an even more important goal for my life and that is...Living for Jesus who was crucified for us!

    Just my opinion, it might bring your blog a little bit more interesting.
