Lady Gaga explains meat dress worn at MTV VMAs on Ellen show

On the season eight premier of The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Lady Gaga—wearing the same meat dress she donned while accepting the Video of the Year award at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards—explains why she feels the need to dress herself in pieces of animal flesh.

“Well, it is certainly no disrespect to anyone that is vegan or vegetarian,” Lady Gaga clarifies. “As you know, I am the most judgment-free human being on the earth. However, it has many interpretations. For me this evening, if we don’t stand up for what we believe in and if we don’t fight for our rights pretty soon, we’re going to have as much rights as the meat on own bones. And, I am not a piece of meat.”

To counter Lady Gaga's obsession with meat, Ellen presents the 24-year-old with a veggie bikini and skirt.
