Lady Gaga’s Meat Dress = Political?

You say “meat dress”, we say “Gaga“. But while most of us chalked up her iron-clad (HA – get it?) MTV ensemble as yet another publicity stunt, Mama Monster has come forward and explained that her garb was far more than just attention-getting.

In an interview with the Financial Times, Gaga explained that her dress was a reference to a speech she made, The Prime Rib of America, which urged the US military not to discriminate against homosexuals who serve. According to the singer, the discriminatory law prevents the army from “enjoying the greatest cut of meat my country has to offer.'”

She then elaborated: “Everyone just saw pork. It wasn’t pork! It was prime rib and plain steak.”

Oh well, that makes much more sense. (Kind of. Sort of. …Okay, fine.)

In the same interview, everyone’s favourite fashion icon elaborated on her spending habits, saying that “the only big things [she’s] purchased [were her] dad’s heart valve and a Rolls-Royce” for her parents’ anniversary.

Which, we should add, has nothing to do with the fact that Ms. Gaga had recently gone bankrupt: following the extravagant Monster Ball, the singer claims she “called everybody” and asked what happened to her money. Evidently, bringing the noise down touring the global circuit will leave you $3 million in debt.

We’re willing to bet she could get about that much for the meat dress.
