PETA

Gaga's Meat Dress is a Maggot Magnet

9/13/2010 10:30 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Lady Gaga may have smuggled in a few extra guests to the MTV VMAs last night -- because the people at PETA think it's likely that her raw meat dress was "crawling in maggots."

Lady Gaga Meat Dress

A rep for the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals tells us that Gaga "has a hard time being 'over the top,' and wearing a dress made from cuts of dead cows is offensive enough to bring comment."

But the rep notes that if the dress was made from actual meat -- and not the fake stuff  -- it wouldn't take long to go sour ... saying, "After time spent under the TV lights, it would smell like the rotting flesh that it is and likely be crawling in maggots."

Still hungry?!

i mean i understand why PETA has an issue with it and it might have offended certain groups of people. but everyone knows she is the way she is and they shouldn't judge her on what she wore. its her choice. freedom is a right. PETA is free to say what they want and shes free to wear what she wants.

I love this dress and the other 2 dresses she wore that night. I don't think she was trying to get under PETA's skin, nor was she trying to make a statement that she supports killing of animals. I don't think she is wearing bunny rabbit meat or an endangered animal. I'm thinking pork of beef. The thing that saddens me the most is she was there for a cause and no one cares about it... which was the Don't Ask Don't Tell (DADT) policy... I don't know if it was her outfit that took away from the cause she was there for, or people really don't care... and that sad. Don’t be surprised when another singer comes out with a meat outfit. Did anyone notice that Katy Perry now wears wigs? I wonder where she got that look from. Kesha came in a trash bag, and most of the time has crazy make up on… Yes, Gaga has crazy outfits but pop singers should be thanking her for opening up the door for thinking out side of the box!

PETA is beyond stupid and so is anyone else who think the dress is actual meat. I mean really, are they that retarded? even gaga isnt dumb enough to wear something that would smeel like rotting flesh and be crawling with maggots under the hot lights. Also, to get maggots you need...flies!! and are any flies visible in any of the pictures? no. if it was real meat shed be surrounded by them. Case Closed.

truth hurts    

That outfit is really disgusting. Animals lost their lives for this...at least let the meat be a meal for someone. People are hungry and she is walking around in prime round...disgusting. And we wonder why other countries hate us.

I agree with #166. And to the people that think the meat wasn't real; it actually was:

But even in this, she isn't original:
