Lady Gaga's meat dress to be displayed

2012-09-06 20:08
Los Angeles - Lady Gaga's famous meat dress has made its way to Washington, along with other relics from music history.

Lady Gaga's dress from the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards is now dried but has been painted to restore its raw meat colour. Beyond its shock value it's being displayed at the National Museum of Women in the Arts with an explanation of her political message.

When Lady Gaga wore the dress she was accompanied by US soldiers affected by the "Don't ask, Don't tell"-ban on gays serving openly in the military. She later explained that if people don't stand up for their rights, they'll have as many rights as a piece of meat.

The dress is featured in an exhibit opening later this week with items from other pioneering women in music.

    Animals were slaaughtered for that meat. To waste the product strips away all reason for its slaughter. Its akin to wearing fur. Disgusting exhibition.

      I've got no problem with people eating animals, so do why. But don't kill it for nothing by wasting its body on a fashion statement.

    Is it now a biltong dress?
