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.

Chelsea Handler Hosts VMAs -- How Did She Do?

Chelsea Handler hosts the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards held at the Nokia Theatre L.A. Live on Sunday (September 12) in Los Angeles.

“My plan was to stay sober the entire show,” the 35-year-old comedienne joked. “But in an interesting twist, I am as high as a kite. That’s the last time I do a prayer circle with Snoop Dogg.”

Later in the evening, Chelsea joined the cast of Jersey Shore in a hot tub. When she climbed out of the tub, Chelsea had spontaneously grown a baby bump!

HOW DO YOU THINK Chelsea did as a first-time host of the VMAs? She was the first woman to host the show since Roseanne Barr in 1994!
