Lady Gaga's Fox Head Fur Scarf Draws PETA's Fire

Lady Gaga is quickly transforming from celebrated eclectic artist to Cruella de Vil.

The 26-year-old pop star has taken her fashion style in a sharp turn towards animal cruelty, despite earlier assertions that she’s against the fur industry. “I hate fur, and I don’t wear fur,” she once told Ellen DeGeneres.

Unfortunately, it appears that the controversial singer is turning towards the very industry she once shunned in an effort to continue to garner attention. Her latest ensemble worn Wednesday included a fox fur scarf still attached to the head of its original owner. PETA, who has made Gaga a new featured target in their anti-fur campaigns was quick to pounce.

“The outfit really speaks for itself. PETA is considering passing the hat so that someone can buy her a heart,” PETA spokesperson Wendy Wegner told RadarOnline.com, who said the fur appears to be from an Arctic White Fox, which is often electrocuted for its fur.

In a rambling and rather unapologetic blog post in August, Gaga addressed her fans’ concerns that she was embracing fur – by, well, telling them to basically f*ck off.

“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,” she wrote.

“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.”

Bummer. I always respected Gaga not only for her talent, but also for her alternative fashion. Being unique is a wonderful way to make your brand stand out. Lately, however, she’s gone off the deep end and is now just another celebrity ignoring immense cruelty  for the sake of fashion. You know when someone starts calling a fox head scarf “art” that the blinders are really on.

Gaga may call her fans “little monsters”, but it’s clear from her actions that she’s much more deserving of the title.

  • I guess that fame has turned her into a Monster. What an absolute idiot! This is not a fashion statement ya moron….no more gaga music in my house!

  • She seems like a little kid that found a new way to strike nerves, and PETA keeps responding to her intentions, so she’ll continue for that extra attention. Any thing to validate her existence.

  • Have any of you considered that it may not be real? And if it is – Are you all vegans? I doubt it

    • Gwen

      Yeah, Corinne, I’m vegan, thanks for asking!

    • jschoder

      I am. Thanks for asking.

    • Rachel

      Yes I am vegan! Regardless of that though she should be aware of the cruelty involved in the fur industry and abstain from buying the fur.

    • DLC

      i’m VEGAN and want her head on a stick!

      • guest

        Wow — never realized that vegans were so violent!

        • Becky

          THAT vegan is violent.. please don’t group us all together 🙂

    • Kele

      Hey, I’m vegan, too! I really used to respect Gaga for being outspoken about equal rights and other social issues, but this whole thing lately with her blatant disrespect for life has really disappointed me.

    • Gwen

      Dear Corrine,

      After taking a gander of your profile pic, I think it may be in your best interest to adopt a vegan diet yourself, just sayin’..

    I have a beautiful little white fox and the sight of this is just sickening. I never cared for her or her music to begin with. This is just more validation.

  • jschoder

    “I respect your views, please respect mine.”

    The last straw argument. She is basically saying: “I respect that you don’t want to be cruel to animals so you have to respect my cruelty to animals.”

    And my answer is: NO I don’t aspect cruelty in any form and I don’t give a shit if you believe that your celebrity status or you fight for marriage equality some excuses your behaviour. Cruelty is cruelty and we should be able to say so.

  • Annoyed

    Why does she think the clothes she wears is art? I’ve seen club kids and drag queens dressing like that for decades before her ass. She’s really lame, I mean how long are you going to try and “shock” people with her clothes? It’s getting boring and I think the reason she’s does it is because she’s not attractive in regular clothes and needs to hide with all this junk she puts on.

  • death to the hippies

    i lold heartily

  • tn_dude

    frack this disgusting b*%^$@%!

  • Kat

    booooo to her, no more spending $$$ on her for me.

  • Connie

    she is just a slag now.

  • Sherrie Amore

    Iv’e seen her wear fur a few times recently and the more i do, i less i like her. Too bad, i was a huge fan, even my 5 yr old son knows a lot of her songs by heart. This is too much for me, I refuse to eat meat or any animal by products due to the respect i have for their lives. So this is tugging at my morals 🙁

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
