Lady Gaga VS P.E.T.A

Submitted by on August 16, 2012 – 8:03 pm Comments

Lady Gaga is getting some bad furry press from P.E.T.A. For those who don’t know, P.E.T.A stands for People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals.  The organization has been known for their outrageous anti-fur campaigns like flour bombing Kim Kardashian early this year while she walked the red carpet, as well as the tastefully done “I would rather go NAKED…” photo campaign. How is Gaga responding to P.E.T.A in this situation you may ask? She is fueling their smear campaign fire, intentionally antagonizing them whilst also defending herself.

Gaga had this to say on twitter, “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. 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.” She adds to this “You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance.”

Personally I think P.E.T.A is being well…P.E.T.A because that is just how they are and Gaga is responding like Gaga by antagonizing them back. I do not think Gaga needs to explain anything about where her fur or faux fur comes from, to them and like she says she has worn all these other animals themed suits like snake skin, leather, and even meat,  it is GAGA we expect crazy shenanigans from her it is just how she is. She concludes her debate with “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.”

I agree save the “assaulting” people thing because it is not going to change her mind, also peaceful protesting and boycotting will not get you thrown in jail. When it comes down to brass tacks, Lady Gaga has the right to wear whatever she wants to while showing whatever skin she wants. P.E.T.A has the right to be angry and PEACEFULLY ASSEMBLE about it, boycott her music and whatever.

It is just the way the law works here, unless you see her in real tiger skin or another type of endangered animal, we may not like fur and yeah if it is real fur it is cruel, but that is HER choice not ours.
