PETA Should Totally Feature Lady Gaga in One of Their 'I'd Rather Go Naked than Wear Fur' Ads

Can't you see it?  They will sit her down, make her watch 'Earthlings', then cry together over the meat dress incident.  Okay, sorry for the snark.  Nevertheless, how does PETA pick the celebs they feature for those ads? I love Khloe Kardashian, I'm not going to lie, but why did they feature her in their ad campaign? I like PETA alright, except sometimes they seem more celebrity obsessed than myself.  That's saying a lot.  There are so many hawt vegetarian/vegan, non-fur wearing celebs to chose from for those Jenny Lewis.  What?!  You know it's true!  

Getting back to Lady Gaga's meat dress, WTF?!  So wasteful and exploitative to animals.  I read she did it to prove she's not a piece of meat, some noise like that, but c'mon.  I'm actually speechless about it.  So I'll let Mark from Vegansaurus articulate my feelings.  I found this on his blog and started cracking up, "You’re making this really hard on me, Stefani Joanne! How am I supposed to continue defending “Bad Romance” and “Paparazzi” to haters when my own reaction to this meat-dress debacle is to scream “WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?” through a motherf@#$%*^$ bullhorn? SERIOUSLY!"

I'm definitely inspired to read Carol J. Adams', The Sexual Politics of Meat: A Feminist-Vegetarian Critical Theory


  1. I have a defense for the meat dress. It's totally not what Gaga was trying to say but if I were her publicist I would spin it like so: Gaga wore the meat dress as a graphic example of how wearing meat is no different than wearing leather or fur. You are still wearing an animal!!
