Pop star Lady Gaga has made the headlines again for wearing a dress made of slabs of meat to the MTV Video Music Awards in LA.
BBC News has reported that when pop star Lady Gaga turned up to the MTV Music Video Awards ceremony wearing a dress apparently made of meat - with matching bag, fascinator and shoes - millions were left baffled and intrigued in equal measure.
In a statement PETA said: "Wearing a dress made out cuts of dead cows is offensive enough to bring comment, but someone should whisper in her ear that there are more people who are upset by butchery than who are impressed by it."
Debate has since arisen online and in mainstream media about why Gaga chose to wear the contentious frock. The singer defended her decision to US chat show host Ellen DeGeneres, explaining it was a protest against the American armed forces' "don't ask, don't tell" policy towards homosexuals. The policy means gay people can serve in the armed forces so long as they don't disclose their sexual orientation, Independent reports.
