Pop sensation Lady Gaga has come under attack from animal rights activists after spending a fortune on a collection of fur coats while on a recent trip to Russia.

The Poker Face hitmaker is said to have purchased a number of pricey garments from the Helen Yarmak store in Moscow last week, including a 131,250 pounds Russian sable coat and a silver fox fur valued at 12,250 pounds.

Her shopping spree has landed her in trouble with officials from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and they have blasted her for splurging on the controversial fashion choices during the festive holidays.

"Out of place, out of time, and possibly out of her mind:

While the country focuses on rejecting violence and we are deep into the season of peace, giving, and kindness, Gaga is busy decking herself out in a coat made of at least 30 slaughtered animals' skins," said a spokeperson of PETA.

The 26-year-old singer has made an enemy of the PETA organisation in August also when the campaigners accused her for a pink mink coat and a white fox stole.
