Lady Gaga Defends Wearing Fur

Lady Gaga Defends Wearing Fur

Lady Gaga heads out of her hotel and gets mobbed by fans as she heads to her concert on Thursday (August 16) in Bucharest, Romania.

The 26-year-old singer, in Moschino, recently took to her website to defend wearing fur.

“To the fans. i want you to know that I care deeply about your feelings and views, and I will always support your philosophies about life,” Gaga wrote. “We’ve been having over-arching conversations about society, equality, and politics for the past five years, and we should continue.”

“I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for ANY CAUSE,” she added. “Particularly one that I respect. ‘Animal Rights.’ 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, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, “kermit” and not to mention meat, that I have already worn. This should already put me in a category as one who appreciates and adores the beauty of animals in fashion, but am not a strict vegan.”

“I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, especially i have never been able to afford a nice one, but this does not mean my morals are rigid and that I won’t bend at the sight of an absolute art piece of a coat,” Gaga continued. “I have no chains about this. You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance. But I am truly sorry to fans who are upset by this, its a fair and applaudable feeling about the health and safety of animals. I respect your views, please respect mine. And to campaigners, Save your flour to make bread for the children who are hungry. And Kim Kardashian is fabulous.”

    I was thinking that was a pretty decent/well-written statement… until she said Kim Kardashian was fabulous.

    huh? Says:

    Some people who seek so desperately to be different for the sake of different tend to come out looking like a fool. Lady Gaga tries so hard.

    Kim Kardashian is NOT fabulous. The girl is a talentless famewhore.

    what? Says:

    Did she really call Kim Trashian fabulous? Must be a typo.

    I think Gaga is DEEPLY uneducated. Those other ‘animal’ fashion pieces are obtained in a hugely different way than fur. Animals are SKINNED ALIVE and then tossed aside and left to die, writhing in agony. Animals for meat/cows for hide etc are killed humanely. There is NO EXCUSE for wearing fur. Sorry Gaga, but you’ve just made yourself look like a stupid and horrible person. Imagine having all of your skin cut off until you were nothing but muscle and nerve endings, then being tossed onto a pile to die. Sick.

    Lady Gaga needs to pick her battles. For one second, I thought she was trying to get sympathy for not being able to buy fur at one point in her life… as if now that she’s able to buy anything she wants, fur is suppose to be like a dream come true? Get a grip. Fur is not a mandate, just like owning a real Ivory from an elephant is unnecessary. Just silly excess stuff.

    I don’t mean to offend, and only the truth offends, but trashy follows trashy. Hence her comment about Kim K.

    smh Says:

    Gaga is a walking contradiction. Giving props to the trash Kim who’s only talent was taking it in the b*utt and blowing on a crooked pe*nis on screen. Shame on Gaga. There are real fabulous people out there.

    Looks like she is as vain as the rest of them. The vanity she so-called rejects is what she obviously craves.

    She should be able to wear whatever the hell she wants.

    @Lauren: but it’s ‘fashion’ or ‘art’ to wear it *cough* Doubt she’d wear a writhing-in-pain meat dress.

    Ridic! Says:

    Gaga is as phony as her outfits to be giving a shout out to Kim Trash…

    I like her song California Gurls but Kim Kardashian and her husband Otis or Odem or whatever is a wreck.

    Save your stupid dress and give the meat to the children who are hungry, Lady Gaga.

    Elizabeth G. Says:

    @SaintMidian: bahahahahahahahha ummmmm that’s Katy Perry’s song and its Kim K’s sisters that are married, not her lol. But it’s ok if u were wrong none of those celebrities are worth paying attention to xD

    Wow! Says:

    Unbelievable, Gaga tries to mask an ugly truth with fancy words. “You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance.” Save the semantics for your mama, moron. We know better.

    By the way, the trashy Kim is not fabulous, nowhere near it.

    Elizabeth G. Says:

    The worst part of this “statement” of hers is that she is actually encouraging her fan-base to wear fur coats :( and She has so many moronic followers, like actual FOLLOWERS, that are going to say, “she’s right!” people are so stupid these days.

    Gaga made me gag! Says:

    “Save your flour to make bread for the children who are hungry” Huh, what?! What a blatant contradiction. I hope people boycott her music or anything she touches for that matter. How easily these people forget where they come from as soon as the money rolls in.
