Amazed, shocked and a lot of mixed emotions for this year’s MTV Music Awards at the NOKIA Theatre, Los Angeles. The reason behind was focused much on Lady Gaga. In as much as she gained majority of the awards, her outfit for the night has been much anticipated as well. She has been known for “out of this world” concepts in her life starting from her songs, music videos up to her outfits. Her weird dress is not an unusual after all but it gained much criticisms especially from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals or popularly known as PETA.

She wore a meat dress. Yes, you’re reading it right, she wore a meat dress. The animal rights advocacy group already released a statement condemning Lady Gaga’s dress. “Meat is the decomposing flesh of a tormented animal who didn’t want to die, and after a few hours under the TV lights, it would smell like the rotting flesh it is and likely be crawling in maggots — not too attractive, really,” said PETA in their statement.

The dress was created by Franc Fernandez. He also designed the diamond headpiece that she wore in her Bad Romance video. This video has gained the numerous awards she obtained during the night. The singer explained her reasons for wearing the dress in the show of Ellen DeGeneres. She said that she did it for her gay fans whom she felt were governmentally oppressed. DeGeneres who has been known vegetarian was obviously not convinced by her reason.

The singer obtained 8 awards all in all and 7 of which was from her Bad Romance video. The 8th was Best Collaboration for Telephone featuring Beyonce.
