Days after the MTV Video Music Awards, people are still talking about Lady Gaga’s meat dress. Â And of course, that’s exactly why she wore it. Â I’ve heard explanations ranging from “it’s a statement about the hypocrisy of meat-eating” to “it’s a statement about the world’s attitude toward women,” but really I think it’s just a statement about Lady Gaga’s desperate need for everyone to look at her. Â She’d wear a disease-ridden raccoon around her neck if her publicist told her it would turn more heads.
I’m curious as to what happened to that meat after the VMAs were over – do you think she just hung the dress outside and waited for the vultures to come and devour it? Â Actually, that’s mean, I shouldn’t talk about the paparazzi that way. Â But it’ll be interesting to see what Gaga has to do next to get the cameras turned her way. Â I’m hearing a lot of talk about how innovative she is – am I the only one who thinks these obvious ploys for attention are just a little pathetic?
