Lady Gaga calls anti fur campaigners ‘childish’
Lady Gaga, who has hogged the headlines and made a pop career out of wearing ‘outrageous’ clothes apparently has laid into animal rights groups in a blog on her website.
The pop star who looks like she gets dressed by first year fashion students reacted to the stick she gets for wearing fur by claiming that…
“I do not support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for ANY CAUSE.”
In a statement that veers somewhere in the middle of pro and anti fur the Madonna lite singer stated…
“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, the 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. I have no chains about this.
“You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance.”
Lady Gaga appeared to criticise PETA’s campaigns:
“I want you to know that I care deeply about your feelings and views, and I will always support your philosophies about life. I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for ANY CAUSE. Particularly one that I respect. Animal Rights.”
Lady Gaga also apologised to any little monsters who might be offended, adding:
“I am truly sorry to fans who are upset by this, its a fair and applaudable feeling about the health and safety of animals.”
No-one expects pop stars to care about anything apart from themselves these days and most careers are now built on some sort of flimsy premise like wearing an oversized pin coat and tottering heels. Being unpleasant is part of the job I guess…
