Lady Gaga

What ever happened to that meat dress Lady Gaga wore to the VMAs last week?

You might assume that the dress, made from a cut of meat known as "matambre" in the designer's home country of Argentina, would be headed for some sort of deep freeze. Otherwise, it would become a hostel for maggots.

But you'd be wrong. The designer, Franc Fernandez, tells me the beef's true fate:

"The dress will go through a process where it becomes a sort of 'jerky' and will be archived. Thank you."

No, Mr. Fernandez, seriously, thank you—for sharing this. And for making sure that Gaga's meat ensemble does not become a hotel for elitist maggots, and instead becomes, simply, beef jerky.
