London (ANI): Lady Gaga has once again raised eyebrows by wearing
an outfit made of raw meat to the MTV Video Music Awards. The
24-year-old 'Bad Romance" singer wore a dress, boots, hat and purse
made of animal flesh as she collected one of eight gongs on stage
in Los Angeles.
The beef-clad pop queen linked her latest bizarre ensemble to a
battle for civil rights - insisting: "I am not a piece of meat,"
reports the Sun. She claimed it was tied in with a protest against
the US military''s Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy, which stops gays
admitting their sexuality.
Insisting she did not mean to upset vegetarians, she said: "If
we don't stand up for what we believe in and fight for our rights
pretty soon, we're going to have as much rights as the meat on our
bones. And I am not a piece of meat."
