Lady Gaga Explains Meat Dress Meaning

Lady Gaga Explains Meat Dress Meaning

Ellen DeGeneres presents Lady Gaga with a veggie bikini and skirt as an alternative to her meat dress, which Gaga wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards earlier in the evening.

“Well, it is certainly no disrespect to anyone that is vegan or vegetarian,” Gaga explained. “As you know, I am the most judgement-free human being on the earth. However, it has many interpretations. 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 own bones. And, I am not a piece of meat.”

Watch Gaga‘s interview TODAY (Sept. 13) during the season eight premiere of The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Justin Timberlake is also a guest!

FYI: Gaga just announced that her new album is called Born This Way.

    I love her music but I hate her for things like this

    I love t meat, I also love animals but we need meat in our diet as others animals do, otherwise we have to take pills like vegans, which does’nt make sense for me,

    BUT this is disgusting, awful and cruel, was a lost of meat for something so superficial like trying to look really strange


    WTF was she thinking? REALLY THIS IS BEYOND SICK! She couldve wore grass instead of “meat”!! I mean what message is she sending out to the world………that you can wear fur and now you can wear meat also?? She really is seeking for attention and her music is great but not her style!! Cruelty to animals must stop!!

  • ++Logan++

    This is the most pathetic thing i’ve seen to date. I absolutely loathe lady gaga now, and i’m not even an animal rights activist.

    Seriously lady gaga, stop trying to be deep and meaningful, you’re full of crrap. Stop copying cher, madonna, grace jones and nicky minaj and go into hiding. This attempt at originality is getting lame.

  • Andy

    Mad Gaga Disease – her next trick at the 2011 VMAs, the dress will be made out of worms and magots mixed with blood. She is totally gross (She sat in meat YUCK!! )

  • tara

    When I first heard “lady” Gaga on the radio I thought, well, she just might be ok, she sings alright….then she started acting like a stupid nasty beotch, always begging for attention. Can’t stand her anymore, she obviously thinks she is a queen of some kind (queen of uselessness, maybe) She should have stayed with singing, not attention- craving. Disgusting.

  • tara

    @kenny: she IS a douche bag, AND a piece of meat!

  • Louis




  • SunDee

    She Always… WANNA BE ON TOP & seeking people attention. Yes she fulfilled her mission , But…. it would only hurt her future career.

    She lost some fans & respect with this Meat Dress.
    the wheel of Fame is turning upside down starting… NOW!!!

  • Louis


    is eating animals less cruel than wearing them?

  • anne

    if anyone’s ever cooked with meat, you obviously know it’s bloody. and i see no blood dripping down my hero’s face or body. i thought our generation was more open-minded, but i guess not.

  • Tiggie

    I think she looked GREAT!!!!! All of you haterz need to leave her the f*** ALONE!!! She is a very talented artist who can sing her a** off! You are just jeolous that you don’t have any talent whatsoever!!!!

  • littlemonster

    of course she’s getting attention, thats why she does it so the statement she’s making is heard! yeah it’s a pretty weird thing to do but hating on her for somehting she’s wearing is stupid. You should all accept by now she’s never gonna dress ‘normally’ so get over it seriously. Lady gaga i love you, you are my god!

  • Sohappy

    I’m so happy that people are becoming intelligent enough to see through this stupid attention needy whore,(at least the majority of the comments are intelligent,but not all of course,some are brain washed idiots) i honestly thought it was to late and that everyone was brain washed already, and i felt so alone, so out of place, being the only one who knows shes not even close to an artist,& that shes nothing shes portrayed to be, while everyone else is going nuts over her.
    The truth is, being an outsider nowadays means not liking lady gaga, and she claimed she was an “outsider” lmfao right. She was a slutty,preppy,popular,snob & is still one now, just even more popular,those who do not like her are the outsiders,and the rebels.

    I just love how she says shes not a piece of meat….. yet she poses naked anytime possible & is constantly wearing thongs, & bending over every second. Shes nothing but a piece of meat, nothing more.

  • earthx

    Meat dress true meaning treat me like a peace of meat or we women are nothing more then meat

  • noname

    I have nothing to say about her music or lifestyle, but what she did with this dress is way far from giving a good message, it is making fun of the people dying from hunger, and the animal killed. Someone needs to tell her that she cant do everything whatever her small mind tells just to be different!!!

    I wish to show some appreciation to the writer just for rescuing me from this type of scenario. Because of exploring through the the web and obtaining proposals which were not productive, I believed my entire life was gone. Living without the presence of strategies to the issues you’ve resolved by means of your guide is a crucial case, and those that might have adversely affected my career if I had not noticed your site. Your primary mastery and kindness in controlling every item was invaluable. I’m not sure what I would’ve done if I had not encountered such a subject like this. I can now relish my future. Thanks for your time so much for this impressive and effective guide. I will not hesitate to suggest your web blog to anyone who desires recommendations on this problem.

  • Zula Blackburn

    Very good written article. It will be useful to anyone who usess it, including myself. Keep up the good work – for sure i will check out more posts.

    I and also my friends appeared to be taking note of the nice secrets and techniques on your website and then the sudden developed a horrible feeling I had not thanked the website owner for them. All the young boys were certainly glad to read through them and already have pretty much been using those things. I appreciate you for actually being considerably kind and also for figuring out this kind of extraordinary ideas most people are really desperate to learn about. Our own sincere apologies for not expressing appreciation to you sooner.

  • Matt

    This woman has to be one of the most stupid individuals in the position of role model to youth that I’ve ever come across. Yes, you are a piece of meat. Yes, what you are doing and saying is offensive to those who do not support inflicting unnecessary suffering upon sentient beings, claiming that you are judgement-free does not make blanket justification for your actions.

    As an entertainer, I apologize for individuals such as Lady Gaga.
