The 2010 VMA awards was filled with ridiculous circumstances as expected.
GaGa and her dedicated large fan base have such excitement, eagerly awaiting her next fashion statement., She never lets them down, sorting, outrageous @%^&*( styles!
This time, she went way too far attending this year's 2010 VMA's.
Her fashion theme; raw meat.
I am talking hats, shoes, here check it out, does she need help?

I don't know if I can honestly eat meat again, and I know when I do, she will for sure enter my mind. I think I need help now.
I hope I never meat her
Is this gross to you or a brilliant marketing strategy?
Please help me understand. I hope that cow can't see from somewhere, how his his body parts were utilized.!
I love when she asked Cher to hold her "meat purse"! LOL Do you think that was a play on words to mean something else? heehee
I really don't think I'd ever be game to put meat on my body... That seems... Incredibly unhygienic.
oh but wait, wardrobe change for 2nd photo op
I am really afraid!
I thought it looked gross and it probably smelled bad -- she was in the thing the whole night?! But she certainly made a statement all right.
I missed it! was it FRESH meat?
eewwwww just looked at the photos on youtube - man! she is worse than I thought! stinky worse.
fresh until 4 hours into the party, i mean the dress too?
Do you know how much I would pay to have been there
to release a dozen pit bulls?
millions, ok if i had it ;
hope the meat was bleeding, poor dude that was the fashion meat manager
think the had sex after in the raw?
I didn't watch it, but heard about it. gross... I keep wondering when her 15 minutes of fame is over.
And some people think this person is a good role model for others?
how did they put it all together? sew it? glue? staples? really, how?
I don't have an issue with Lady Gaga, but, did the dress have to be raw meat? I think that's gross!! I suppose, though, at least it was beef and not pork. (I've heard pork goes bad real quick!! lol) And they're talking about the dress not leaving a mess behind where she sat - I say, yeah right! Raw meat is going to leave some kind of residue....they need to be sanitizing her seat!
She could have gotten her point across with a dress made to resemble meat...
I agree... should have totally used it to LOOK like meat. but alas... it wouldn't have been enough for her I guess. =\
Having it just look like meat would be so much sanitary, that is for sure.
Jeez, I feel like I'm joining a million others by saying she's gone nuts, and maybe she has. And maybe she knew people would say that, too. That annoys the crap out of me. Oh, well, I don't know what is going on in her head, lol.
Sogno just showed me a video of when she first started out at 17. Google or youtube Stefani Germanotta and you will see how much she has changed! She is only 24 now and she looks 30. So much has changed with her, it's a bit wild.
I'd rather see pictures of this in my home magazines than the one of her in clear 'bubbles'. At least she doesn't appear nude.
honestly what animal parts do you think she sported here?
Reminds me of some weeds, gone to seed, that I see near the rivers and streams.
It sure looks a lot like a bird's nest to me. You know they cut out the bottom, spray painted it white then they stuck it on her face.
The dress would have gone off by now, so she won't be able to wear it again.
I don't suppose it's any worse than wearing leather, just not quite the same ...
Its pretty gross... I read she made a statement that she didn't wish to offend any of her vegetarian/vegan fans.. I was offended that she wore it and I'm not even one of her fans. It was just in poor taste.
More than questioning Lady Gaga's sanity as far as wearing this dress is concerned, I question that of her advisers. Okay, it has caused controversy, which means publicity, but I'm pretty sure it must have lost her a few fans, and gained her none. Counter-productive.
Lady Gaga said of the dress on the Ellen Show:
'... it has many interpretations but for me this evening if we don't stand up for what we believe in and if we don't fight for our rights pretty soon we're going to have as much rights as the meat on own bones. And, I am not a piece of meat.'
Wearing meat and talking tripe.
I love Gaga and the fact that she's outrageous and out there. I'd like to see more people with her chutzpa and less fear in expressing themselves.
Oh, I agree - I'm a great fan of her's, have all her recordings, and usually love the styling ideas she comes up with. I just don't think the meat dress was a very good idea. And what could she say to justify it; nothing much that made any sense.
being out there is always a fantastic quality to have. this dress was just ...ew. lol
I agree, Bard! She does have some talent but is nothing special! She needs a gimmick to be famous, she cannot do so with her voice alone! Sad!
Lady Gaga is a character. She admits this. it is a persona she lives by. Stefani Germanotta is long since gone and she refuses to allow anyone to even call her by her real name now. Sadly when she was singing at a young age she sang beautiful songs and she has a fantastic vocal range. I was very impressed with early performances she did floating around on the internet. Someone told her to go a different route with her music style so she could be famous and that is what she did... she now only sings that one style of techno-ish /pop style of music and I can't stand listening to her. She has no depth anymore as an artist and relies only on her outfits as her means of standing out.
Her music is formulaic, predictable, and absolutely riveting. It's mesmerizing in club scenes, particularly. Her fashion is the hall mark of gauche and gaudy and experimentalism. She is not a natural beauty, which only adds to her allure, making her an icon for every other person who feels "average" or normal. The image industry is about exceptional beauty, which most of the world covet.
Look at the press she's getting here. Just here, alone. Now imagine the press she's getting EVERYWHERE else. Regardless of what you like or dislike about her, she and her marketing team are geniuses. She is the new Madonna. Madonna was the bad girl of pop music, the icon of sex, indulgence, and luxury. Gaga is the new Madonna. You don't have to like anything about her, to keep her at the top. All you have to do is talk about her.
She is a success whether anyone wants her to be or not.
...you're right...it's all about marketing...whatever the product is and how it is successful.....i would have loved to have been around the table when Starbucks was talking about charging $3 or more for a coffee....when you could go everywhere and buy one for a buck....but the team managed to convince lots of people to pay 3x the price and be happy with their choice of spending more!
Ah, the amazing power of variety and personalization! Think of Gaga in that light. Variety, and personalization. People personalize her all over the place, they personalize her as repulsive, or the personalize her as a pop icon to be admired. Not much in between.
For me, there's nothing likeable about Madonna. Lady Gaga is totally loveable, and that's one of the reasons for her success, I think ... Anyway, why change that - she doesn't need the kind of controversy that wearing a dress made of meat will bring.
Besides, wearing that dress makes it seem as though new ideas are thin on the ground.
no way is it formulaic! it's some of the most original of the genre for a very long time. She writes all her own songs too.
grab some charcoal and a grill and you got dinner and a naked lady
I wonder if they made dinner with that after the show was over? I mean cuz if not that was a total waste of meat
Yeah - but would you want to eat it after somebody had been wearing it?
Gotta wonder how she was able to keep the big dogs from eating her skirt!
I had to go to the site and see this for myself. I also wanted to see the reason behind Lady GaGa doing this. Personally I like her, she's a great singer and she goes to the extreme to make points because the extreme is memorable.
When u go to that site and scroll down u'll the reason she wore meat was to basically protest people being treated like meat.
There is a method to her madness.
It's brilliant marketing. It's also a very clever comment that she is making, though a lot of people are missing it.
are you sure you really want to think/talk about GaGa covered in meat? and especially since her meat is no longer all that fresh?
There are a ton of talented artists all competing to become the next "hot" artist so this Lady and her staff realize the most she expresses herself via outfits, words, etc., the more marketable she becomes. For example, all you need are the key. . . words -- Newest Lady GAGA outfit (dress, costume, etc) and you will get clicks and attention. Just look at the attention given to her "meat dress."
The meat that she were was prepared for that night for her to wear it although it is gross it did not affect others around her, but everything she does is all marketing the more she gets talked about the more money she makes no one will be able to top her style which is why people love her and the people who hate her and talk about her get her fans so defensive that she becomes more popular but the one thing lady gaga does have is an amazing voice she got to college with that voice and playing the panio!
