Bacon-Wrapped Gaga

Thursday, September 9th, 2010

Okay, it's probably beef but you get the point.
"Meat represents bloody violence and suffering, so if that's the look they were going for—they achieved it," was the statement PETA released after seeing the latest issue of Vogue Japan which features pop star shocker, Lady Gaga, wrapped in nothing but raw meat. Of course this shoot was designed to stun readers, and PETA's president, Ingrid Newkirk, detected this as easily as the rest of us. "Oh, Lady Gaga's job is to do outlandish things, and this certainly qualifies as outlandish because meat is something you want to avoid putting on or in your body," she told the Daily News. However, we're not really sure why PETA isn't pleased with this shoot, if anything doesn't this turn people off of meat?
Also featured in the September issue of Men's Vogue is Jo Calderone, who has been dubbed "Lady Gaga's counter part." Calderone went sans veal cutlet for his piece.

Friday, January 15th, 2010
Kelis, is the latest celebrity target of  animal activist group PETA. After recieving a personailzed letter from PETA and its president Ingrid Newkirk, Kelis responded in a MySpace statement saying things like, "Find a worthwhile cause like the women being maimed in these Middle Eastern countries. Or female circumcision. Or women's rights here in America, we still get paid less for doing the same jobs as men." Kelis definitely has no plans on putting down her fur anytime soon, or ever for that matter. Read the full response here. We caught the furry lady at APHEX in Los Angeles last night and she was not wearing any fur--that said, she sure looked fabulous! Check out her latest track with Basement Jaxx after the jump.
