Animal activists PETA haven’t been kind to Mother Monster of late, attacking the pop star for her wardrobe of furs and, in that one case, even a meat dress.
But Gaga has fired back at the folks at PETA, defending her choice of clothing materials.
“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, in a letter to PETA. “I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for ANY CAUSE.
“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.”
She adds, “You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance.”
Gaga concludes by defending fellow celebrity PETA victim, Kim Kardashian, who was attacked with flour on the red carpet a while back.
“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.”
