You say old news, we say the meat dress that keeps on giving.
Hit or miss, it was one of the biggest fashion moments of the year. So we couldn't pass up the opportunity to ask some of PETA's most stylish supporters—including buxom babe Pamela Anderson—what they thought about Lady Gaga's butcher-shop couture:
"I didn't see it, but I almost had to wear a lettuce dress today," Pammy told us at PETA's 30th Anniversary Gala and Humanitarian Awards over the weekend. "I don't want to see it, what a crazy thing to do."
Consider us surprised she didn't wear the veggie frock. Pam knows how to make a splash for a good cause, and we would have loved to see her go hanger-to-hanger with the infamous Lady G.
But between their fashionable cease and desist and spreading goss that Gaga might be the first maggot-infested VMA winner, we wanted to know if Pam thought the organization she's worked so tightly with ever goes too far.
"I don't think PETA goes too far," Pam said matter-of-factly.
"Everyone is just very compassionate, you have to have extremists so you can have a middle ground. I think it's very important to go far because that's what gets the attention and we have that right. Freedom of speech. It's a great thing to have if you use it for good."
Hear, hear, sister. Team Awful loves that First Amendment, natch.
The Hills Stephanie Pratt agreed, saying: "In this day and age there's so many publicity stunts with celebrities. They need to do that kind of stuff."
The reality semi-star seemed more turned off by Gaga's crazy fashion sense than the fact that she was all dolled up in cow.
"I actually left before she came out in that," Steph fessed. "But I would never wear that. Not only because it's meat carcasses but it wasn't my favorite. She should give [all the meat] to homeless people."
Maggots and all?
Not all fashionable femmes in attendance were hating on the pop star's style though.
"I think she has a really wicked intelligent mind," Twilight's Christian Serratos gushed (and yes, of course we chatted about the vamp series with the gal—more on that later).
"I remember watching her on Oprah and she had this outfit made out of those green Muppets and Oprah and everyone else thought it was the craziest thing and asked her why the hell she would choose such a heinous looking outfit. And Lady Gaga was saying it was a statement to tell people who wore fur how silly and stupid fur looked. And I thought that was incredible."
For ever Muppet dress there's a meat dress. So which fab frock do you prefer?
