Animal activists have taken aim at pop star Lady Gaga for posing in nothing but raw meat for a fashion magazine cover.
The pop star posed in a bikini made entirely of slabs of red meat for the cover of Japan's
and campaigners at the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) have been quick to react.
"Lady Gaga's job is to do outlandish things, and this certainly qualifies as outlandish because meat is something you want to avoid putting on or in your body,”
quoted PETA's president Ingrid Newkirk as saying.
"No matter how beautifully it is presented, flesh from a tortured animal is flesh from a tortured animal."
"Meat represents bloody violence and suffering, so if that's the look they were going for, they achieved it," he said.
Last year, PETA's bosses persuaded Gaga to strip for “Rather Go Naked than Wear Fur” ad campaign after which she vowed never to wear animal skins.
