Lady Gaga Tells PETA What She Really Thinks
A few days ago, PETA wrote an open letter addressed to Lady Gaga, calling her out for being photographed wearing fur, despite her assertion to Ellen Degeneres that she doesn’t wear it. If the headlines for the story are any indication, the people at PETA were either ‘blasting’ or ‘slamming’ her. Perhaps both.
Now, Lady Gaga has blasted or slammed (blammed?) PETA right back in a blog post on her website.
In the post, Gaga explains that she respects the animal rights movement, but does not support “violent, abusive and childish campaigns” in its name. This is obviously in reference to PETA’s famously over-the-top tactics, which include ‘flour bombing’ celebrities who are spotted wearing fur.
“You see a carcass, I see a museum piece de resistance,” explained Mother Monster.
Gaga also refused to confirm whether the furs she wears are real or not.
“I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I would think it hypercritical not to acknowledge the python, the ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb alligator, ‘kermit’ and not to mention meat, that I have already worn,” said the singer.
What do you think? Are PETA’s tactics childish? Is Lady Gaga doing something wrong by wearing fur for the sake of fashion?
