How can we possibly forget Lady Gaga's meat dress? You know, the one she wore to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards.
Whether it was flank steak or thinly sliced brisket sewn together, it was, for her, a pretty conservative outfit. Gaga has some racy costumes, and while she showed a lot of flesh in the Franc Fernandez -Nichola Formichetti designed dress, that time it wasn't her own.
The garment received a lot of press, with some praising its originality while others had a beef with it, including PETA who released this statement:
"Meat is the decomposing flesh of a tormented animal who didn't want to die, and after a few hours under the TV lights, it would smell like the rotting flesh it is and likely be crawling in maggots - not too attractive, really."
Well, apparently some thought the dress worth preserving. The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland is putting the meaty piece on display as part of its Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power exhibit. The museum says the exhibit "highlights the flashpoints, the firsts, the best, the celebrated–and sometimes lesser known women–who moved rock and roll music and American culture forward."
The press will receive a dress preview Thursday morning, but the release sent out by the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame begged one big question. How in the world did they preserve the dress? I've eaten my fair share of jerky, but I can't imagine that as a viable option here and if it were, has the dress been reduced to the size of the meat bikini Gaga wore on the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan?
Either way, let's just hope PETA's prediction didn't come true.
I'm pretty sure Lady GaGa's meat dress shouldn't be allowed to be on display. But that's from a vegetarian.
And also, Lady GaGa got her name from the Queen song, 'Radio Ga Ga'. The sad thing is that she is very talented but is copying Madonna and others too much. If she would be more original I would totally listen to her music. But, she's not. Her music is Ga Ga.
How uncomfortable must it be to feel cold meat on you! Eww gross!!! I can barely cook dinner. I love gagas music but this is a bit ...REPULSIVE!
Dont under estimate Mexicans. They're crazy.
She so hott...i bet the meat dress was nearly cooked when she took it off!
I would love to see Gaga in a meat bikini....she's hott!!
Red meat is good for you!
Green, Fuzzy Meat is Bad for you.
If anyone would recognize Karen O from the Yeah Yeah Yeahs they would see how truly original, talented and "fashionable" she is. She's also a true ROCKER who should have her outfits on display NOT GAGA. GaGa is only in it for the money and fame. She is supposed to be a "role model" which I think in America most people don't know the true definition of the term. The dress is a waste of animal life, and food for people who actually need to eat. ACTIVIST? Yeah I don't think so GaGa. Try again.
She never learned not to play with her food.
The real meat is hiding between "Lady" G.ayguy's legs. It isn't over-the-top fashion if you are a La Cage Tran.ny.
The reeal meat is the one that "Lady" Gayguy hides between his legs. It isn't over-the-top fashion if you are a La Cage tranny.
1st off,lots of racist remarks people.Also, the dress isn't really neassary for her. By the way,aww the fat people want meat so much that they'll eat something lady gaga wore.
She should appear in Planet of the Apes III as an example of an over-the-top human.
Sure, I listen to Lady Gaga once in a blue moon, but really? A meat dress? It drives me nuts if I listen to her music over and over again like a annoying kid who begs there parents to buy them something. And there is a reason her album has gone down the drain, not even the Lady-Gaga-obsessed people at my getto Wal-mart has bought her album. They later put it in the $5 'rejected' isle with Justin Bieber and Children's Songs.
umm my kids are part mexican i suggest the race is not involved! soo back off ! N leave lady g alone!!! its her choice to wear tht! its america geez ppl!!!
Jess, Might want to learn how to spell. But since you are a dumb mexican, I will cut you some slack. Now get back to Taco bell and try getting my order right.
Gaga means crazy in french. And so many people are starving and this thing put meat on her??? So disrespectful. Disgusting
Change name to Hall of Shame!
That dress probably stinks about now just as much as its' wearer.
Taco salad anyone?
Very overrated singer. Pop culture creation that will die out in a few years.
this is bullsh**!
They preserved it the same way "Body Worlds" preserves their meat.
The rock n Roll hall of fame is a joke. Gaga is NOT a rock act and neither are Madonna and a ton of other members. Yet they have snubbed legitimate classic rock acts for decades.
Someone should create a real Rock n Roll hall of fame because this one will basically let anyone in they think might bring a few more tourists.
That's not what Begging the Question means.
Wuz all dis talkin bout Mexicans? u better be careful before u r cut in pieces... and then Lady Gaga will be wearing another meat dress
I'm not gonna lie... I'd love to eat that dress... raw! It would be delicious!
Lady gaga is a true artist with or without meat dresses she makes music for all ages my 4 and 6 year old grandkids love her and so do I
my mom said all the little joooish kids need to learn to concentrate better. She said some of them might go to summer camp.
darn jooooooa are always trying to pickle something.
she better keep it away from the joooos. They will try to pickle it in jars full of vinegar then eat it on their holidays.
i thought it was made into beef jerky. that's what she said on David Letterman...
I always find it amusing how Gaga's fans feel the need to bash the haters and preach about how talented Gaga is ad nauseum, expecting people to "see the light" when they can't even spell properly or write a legit sentence. Without a doubt Gaga is talented, it's just how she's using it and perpetuating it with the over the top antics and basically ripping off from what Madonna and other artists did years ago but better. Gaga knows how to write a catchy tune, and she's a steller live performer, but let's face it, she's overhyped and has far too much of an ego for somebody who writes lazy lyrics and has mediocre dance/pop music. The costumes and antics are a distraction and are more interesting than her music itself. A lot of people don't like Gaga because of it. Get over it.
5000K years from now someone will did up the persevered dress and wounder why did 21 century man use animal meat as clothing....... animal skins would have been a better choice!!!!!!!!
Hope they learn to spell better in 5000 years!
I'll bet that old meat dress smells as nasty as her woowoo does by now.
All these gaga haters saying she's talentless and a sellout and she doesn't belong in the hall of fame. This is all the same crap that was being said about Madonna when she was in her glory back in the day! I guess it's true that they forgive everything but greatness. If you like her great. If you don't, great. ........and comments about owning mexicans, means as a person you suck pok'her face!
Ya just go back to putting makeup on n dressing drag, that comment was pointless
So, it's clear you didn't get an "A" in throwing shade class........limpwrist weak!
Has hall of fame run out of creative ideas and forgotten the meaning of rockn roll omg theregoes hollywood whata shame.....it has become a meat market or a grocery store.....sad.......lady gaga is a talented artist doesnt care what the world thinks....or what stinksvery disappointed......
If i get my hands on that dress id eat it!! yummmm
Gaga is great to watch in concert. She's a person with really good intentions and is an icon especially for kids who need direction today. Her meat dress reflects her abilities to tell you and your attention that through her music she means business.
Do u hear urself, meat dress = she means business, in the words of alan u are a ratard
meat dress? oh my ghosh.... is that possible?
Weather or not you like Lady Gaga, it's not her that puts her music on the air, so don't blame her, blame your radio station that you listen too. Nuff said.
The dress should be headed to the Hall of Lame – because gaga is one of the lamest sellot pop artists that there is right now destroying the air waves of terrestrial radio. Terrible irrelevant buble gum garbage music. Thank goodness for satellite radio, so I don't have to be exposed to that brain melting rubbish.
Damn straight, dumbest music I ever heard, waste of brain cells,
Pretty soon people will preserving dead celebrties body fluids, etc...yes, Doo Doo..what's next? Does anyone have a life?
Too fat and lazy to come out from your computer to do your own gardening and landscaping?
Lady GaGa.....wannabe Maddonnnnnnnaa!!!!!
The difference is GaGa is a freak name .....
Where's the beef? ask Lady Gaga!!
On Letterman, Gaga claimed the dress had been made into jerky by a friend. Why is this Madonna rip-off so popular?
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame should just change it's name to The Music Hall of Fame since there are plenty of inductees that have absolutely nothing to do with rock and roll, and there are plenty of legendary rock and rollers that have been left out.
Are her meat curtains going to be in the hall of fame also?
The dress might have been a bright idea at the time, but having it on display for years to come is not such a bright idea...
Throw "it" in the smoker for hours and serve w/A1.
If it has to be on display for a long time, they better hickory smoke it or something.
Omg please burn her with the dress on
A meat dress is just gross. I mean i love lady gaga's music. But her wardrobe can be a little crazy and uncalled for. I wonder how she got the thing on.
I wonder if they will freeze it, keep it refrigerated, or just let it desiccate as von Anhalt is letting Zsa Zsa Gabor?
I wouldnt say its worthy of the Rock N Roll Hall Of Fame. But then neither is Lady Gaga herself. What I want to see is the shape of the dress. Its got to be crawling/smelling by now. Ooooh now thats attractive.
Lady GAga named should be coo coo who in the hell would where a meat dress
In a time when people are starving this is a slap in the face of those who cannot even afford to eat.Think of the starving children and the homeless.I also think it is disgusting to see someone wear a dead animal.Eating animals is one thing but to wear it is just sick and disrespectful to the creator.
So then you own nothing leather obviously, from clothing to furniture, to car seats there's NO leather in your life... whatsoever... uh huh...
While I don't like the idea of wearing meat on many levels, I don't think that starving children is one of them. The cost of this dress or most other celeb dresses is obscene...and could feed an improverished town for a week or more. I don't see a difference. It would be interesting to see someone pick an "average" dress and then donate the difference to another organization.
It's a shame that Gaga's antics and costumes overshadows her talent, and that the gimmick, ego, and display of "look at me i'm so different" doesn't really justify her mediocre pop music.
yep you right but she making money with all those antics and at least she keeping it on the stage. I dont recall ever hearing about her "weird" antics in a non entertainment related event unlike some "POP/ROCK/RAP signers who believe that they must live the lifestyles of the songs that they lip sync in order for the world to notice them. not a hater or a lover of Lady Gaga I just love capitalism go Money!!!!!!!!
I absolutely agree with you. I am all for individuality and being different, but she is trying way too hard and it makes me not like her at all! Look at her from 2 years ago? Yea sometimes she was half naked but at least you felt a little realness. Now she just seams so fake and the music is not all that. Trying way to hard and it is not working for us folks who like real music and artists. I don't see or hear what the hype is about. Go back in that ridiculous egg and stay there until you can get yourself together because you look ridiculous. Wow she has $. I don't even get how so many people would buy that crap. $ isn't everything folks especially when you lose your soul to it!
How is gaga rock and roll related? She's a pop/dance performer.
Oh the Hall of Fame's always tended to branch out like that.
Michael Jackson's pop (king of) but he was still inducted as were Prince, Madonna, and the BeeGees. Furthermore, it's only the dress going on display for a limited exhibition. Give it a few weeks and it'll be out of there and nobody'll remember it.
PS: And I'm not trying to put Gaga on the same level as Jackson, Madonna, and the others. Just using them as an example to show that the Hall of Fame is rather loose with the definition of "rock and roll". There's a reason Alice Cooper used to mock them.
Rock n Roll died long ago and now anything with a beat is considered Rock.It is a sad era indeed.
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame should just change it’s name to The Music Hall of Fame since there are plenty of inductees that have absolutely nothing to do with rock and roll, and there are plenty of legendary rock and rollers that have been left out.
You'd better hide from "the joooss" too, schmuck. It sounds like you'd deserve whatever you got from them...and others would help.
Try joining the human race sometime...before it's too late.
If you are going to be a hater and a waste of oxygen at least be educated enough to spell what you hate correctly.I am not a J.E.W. I am a M.E.X.I.C.A.N. try hating on us you stupid bigot!!!!You will get ann ass whoopen.Cabron!!!Fataxx!!!
Actually, most of the world hates Nazi creepazoids like you.
Schickelgruber lost. The human race one. Deal with it.
