Lady Gaga's Meat dress Favorite 



Sep 12 2010

Lady Gaga showed up to the 2010 MTV Music Video Awards wearing a dress made out of raw meat. She claimed that the dress showed her disgust towards the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy, but missed the media opportunity to clearly string her thoughts together.

PETA and the vegetarian society obviously condemned the dress, and yet, many saw the costume as an opportunity to make connections-- the meat dress was interpreted as anything from a symbol of the objectification of women, to the degradation of values and rights, to anti-fashion, etc.

Gaga herself commented, "For me this evening, if we don't stand up for what we believe in and if we don't fight for our rights pretty soon, we're going to have as much rights as the meat on our own bones. And, I am not a piece of meat."
