Lady Gaga defends herself and Kim Kardashian against PETA.
Gaga may be a household name and have songs topping every chart, but that doesn’t mean everyone loves her…especially PETA. The animal activists are fuming over numerous recent pics of the hit maker hitting the streets in fur.
Dan Matthews, a vice president for PETA posted a statement aimed at the singer, saying:
“Many of your gay fans, I among them, have long admired what you told Ellen [DeGeneres]: ‘I hate fur and I don’t wear fur.’ I included a link because these recent photos of you in fox and rabbit and with a wolf carcass make it appear that you have amnesia…What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it’s fake, or are you a turncoat? By wearing those dumb furs in a heat wave, you’re making yourself a target just like the mindless Kim Kardashian. As we plan our fall campaigns, please tell us whether what you gracefully told Ellen was heartfelt or just a pose. We await your reply.”
The “Paparazzi” singer didn’t shy away from the comment and fired back, “You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance.”
Adding, “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. 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,” pertaining to the flour bomb Kim got back in March at an event.
The once meat dress wearing woman ended with, “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.”
Kermit is probably thinking, don’t bring me into this…
This is only the beginning of the Gaga VS PETA battle, and will probably go on for some time since a Kardashian is involved. Wonder what Kanye’s take on it is?
