Lady Gaga dons outfit made out of meat for Vogue cover

Lady Gaga has been known to wear some pretty interesting outfits throughout her career. This time, she has posed on a cover of Vogue Hommes Japan, wearing a "Meat Bikini." We will refrain from displaying the full photo because, quite frankly, it makes us here at TDIV nauseous. The thick slabs of cow covering her body has caused quite a stir with animal rights activists and, ironically, with many omnivorous readers of the magazine cover as well.

It was just last year when People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) asked for Lady Gaga to pose for the organization's 'Rather Go Naked Than Wear Fur' ad campaign after she donned an outfit made from a plethora of Kermit the Frog stuffed dolls while vowing never to wear animal skins.

Now, PETA is not pleased with the pop sensations hypocritical choice of attire. President Ingrid Newkirk stated, “Meat is something you want to avoid putting on or in your body. No matter how beautifully it is presented, flesh from a tortured animal, is flesh from a tortured animal."

Yet another celebrity trying too hard to stay in the spotlight at all costs, Lady Gaga has definitely gotten attention from the bloody flesh draping her naked body.

Anyone up for some baby carrots, instead?
