We told you about Lady Gaga’s infamous meat dress being inducted into the Cleveland Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as part of their “Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power” exhibit, and now vegan activist and singer Morrissey is speaking out about it.

You’d expect the guy who was able to make a musical festival go veg for a day in his honor to have some choice words for the meat dress, but instead the interview he gave to the Daily Telegraph reveals that he is more understanding of the motives.

Michael Deacon, who interviewed Morrissey, asked, “…as a vegetarian who wrote the album Meat Is Murder, don’t you deplore Lady Gaga’s meat dress?”

To which the 52-year-old stated, “Well, the meat dress was first done by [artist] Linder Sterling in Manchester in 1982, and she did it as a protest at men seeing female flesh as meat. I don’t know whether that came across with Lady Gaga. I think people didn’t question it too deeply – they simply saw it as ‘today’s loony idea.’ But I like to assume that Gaga had the same notion. If it’s a social and political statement, it’s acceptable. If it isn’t a social and political statement, I don’t really see the point.”

Okay, so meat with a purpose is fair game, according to Morrissey. But what do you all think, can you be vegan and still okay wearing animals?
