Lady Gaga Apologizes To Fans For Frenzy Over Fur Coats

She refers to her fans as “little monsters,” but after repeatedly wearing fur following her public denouncement of it, the term may be applicable to the superstar herself.

Always controversial, Lady Gaga has been spotted recently wearing fur, drawing ire from PETA and animal-loving fans alike. Many assumed the furs were real and some assumed the pelts were faux. Rather than clarify, when asked about the furs, the singer defiantly responded, “For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real, please don’t forget to credit the designer Hermes. Thank you!” Her callous response prompted PETA to suggest a flour-bombing a la Kim Kardashian was in her future.

Gaga has finally addressed the controversy, which she dubs ‘Furgate,’ on her website, writing, “To the fans. I want you to know that I care deeply about your feelings and views, and I will always support your philosophies about life…I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for any cause. Particularly one that I respect. Animal Rights.”

“I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I would think it hypercritical (hypocritical) not to acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, ‘kermit’ and not to mention meat, that I have already worn. This should already put me in a category as one who appreciates and adores the beauty of animals in fashion, but am not a strict vegan. I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, especially (sic) I have never been able to afford a nice one, but this does not mean my morals are rigid and that I won’t bend at the sight of an absolute art piece of a coat.”

“I have no chains about this. You see a carcass, I see a museum piece de resistance. But I am truly sorry to fans who are upset by this, it’s a fair and applaudable feeling about the health and safety of animals. I respect your views, please respect mine.”

She ended with, “And to campaigners, Save your flour to make bread for the children who are hungry. And Kim Kardashian is fabulous.”

For a woman devoted to social justice and philanthropy, Gaga’s views on fur are shockingly archaic–almost as much so as wearing the skins of innocent, tortured animals in the name of “fashion.”

    Gaga is a “Little Monster”! http://veganamericanpricess.com

  • A beautiful piece of art… That was ripped from the skin of a living being. No, I do not respect your views that animals should have to die so that you can look good. I just lost what little respect I had for this woman.

  • VganJules

    When asking for respect it would be wise to make sure you’re (Lady Gaga) not asking someone to respect your decision to support abuse, torture, and death over life.

  • Helequin

    She is such a poser! I’ve never liked her and now, I never will!

  • She lost all credibility with the words “Kim Kardashian is fabulous.”

  • Aina_Lover

    I also “have no chains about this” when it’s Gaga sporting fur. You see an “artist”, I see a carcass that was NOT “born this way.”

  • amyk1980

    “I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, especially (sic) I have never been able to afford a nice one” ??? So it’s not because it’s skinned alive, but because it costs too much?? That says it all about her moral conscience.

  • Lo

    I hope that her indifference stems from not understanding exactly how fur is produced. Some people think the animal is simply killed (which is bad enough) but most people don’t realize many animals are skinned while alive and conscious because the fur comes off easier that way. People who do this are sick; people who support it are either ignorant or sicker than those producing it.

  • sparky

    Just lost me as a fan. Never again. Bomb her with Blood!

  • misovegan

    She says her morals are not rigid, as if that’s a commendable quality. Yeah, that’s really something to be proud of: morals that bend at your whim. Oh, wait – I get it! Because morals are like clothing – you put them on/take them off according to fashion. Morals = Fashion! And here I thought morals were guiding principles to help us all make decisions and take actions based on what we feel is right or wrong. Silly me.

  • chai

    fucking stank bitch! I can’t even think of any other words…fuck her, she is not a revolutionary and an icon to me…She probably only supports the gay community for her own success to me now…She had to target a group to get famous and she chose the gay community so now they love her but she’s a fony folks…Untalented, and her cloths are nasty…She is not an artist but a wanna be! no love for her

  • djb

    What a really stupid, self-centred, narcissistic bitch!

  • JaZt

    Oh please. I couldn’t stand her wanna be ways even before this, this makes me not like her even more. She should have just saved her breath and time and said “fur is sometimes not ok because it can be cruel but for fashion I’ll wear it.” And fur is so tacky and ugly when people wear it it’s funny they don’t see it. Even before I knew how bad fur was when I was younger I thought fur looked stupid and gross on people.

  • Penelope Low

    She wears a meat dress, she loves steaks. Why does her appreciating fur as a product, and not seeing it as a symbol of cruelty surprise anyone? She’s a kid. I hope as she matures she will realize that oppression and bullying of anyone weak and defenceless are all inter-related.

  • Kimmy

    She wants PETA to save the flour for hungry kids?? I’m sure her meat dress could’ve fed them more!

  • Kelley Wardell

    “I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for any cause. Particularly one that I respect. Animal Rights.”
    So you support a violent and abusive industry? And obviously she doesn’t respect the animal rights movement if she wears fur.

    “And to campaigners, Save your flour to make bread for the children who are hungry.” Obviously nobody told her about how we could feed billions of starving children with the grains and corn used to fatten up farm animals for meat demand if we didn’t have animal agriculture. That’s right! Going vegan helps people too!

    While I do think that PETA’s flour-bombing tactics are ineffective and immature, I must say Lady Gaga’s immaturity takes the cake. She has obviously done little to no research about the subject. She’s just another sheep demanding “respect for her choices” that are nothing more than a product of parental and societal conditioning, instead of logic or real compassion.

    lady gaga (sic) I mean gag gag. Perhaps one of your fans will skin your skeezer ass.
