    Lady Gaga, who has caused a stir wearing a meat bikini on a magazine cover and who wore a meat dress at the VMAs on Sunday night, told Ellen DeGeneres all about her reasons for wearing raw food as a fashion statement...one can only imagine how her clothes and body must smell after wearing such a "fabric." Ironically, DeGeneres is a vegan, so the discourse between the pop superstar and the talk show host was interesting, to say the least.

    "It's certainly no disrespect to anyone that's vegan or vegetarian," Gaga told the host. "As you know I'm the most judgment-free human being on the Earth. It has many interpretations, but for me this evening it's [saying] if we don't stand up for what we believe in, if we don't fight for our rights, pretty soon we're going to have as much rights as the meat on our bones." Wow, leave it to Gaga to take wearing a meat dress and turn it into a political statement.

    She also offered an alternate reasoning for wearing meat, saying, that it's meant to convey that she herself is "not a piece of meat." DeGeneres' retort was brilliant. She gave Gaga a bikini and a skirt that was fashioned from vegetables. If it were fruit, it'd have been a wee bit too close to a former Katy Perry ensemble and you know that two pop icons can't dress alike like that. It's career suicide.

    What do you think of Gaga's explanation about wearing meat as a fabric? Is it offensive to vegans and vegetarians? Is it disrespectful of animals? Does her explanation help you look past your initial response to the meat attire?
