Lady Gaga's Meat Bikini Continues Longstanding 'Music & Meat' Tradition

Lady Gaga's Meat Bikini Continues Longstanding 'Music & Meat' Tradition

Lady Gaga is set to appear at the VMAs this Sunday (catch our live blog of it here) and most of the attention is likely to be focused on which outfits she will be wearing. But Gaga has already caused controversy in the build up to the ceremony by appearing on the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan in an outfit made from meat.


Ingrid Newkirk, the President of PETA, has commented on the issue: “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,” she said. “No matter how beautifully it is presented, flesh from a tortured animal is flesh from a tortured animal.”

 

But Gaga’s meat fetish is nothing new in the annals of music history. In 1966, the Beatles attempted to release Yesterday and Today in a controversial cover featuring the band draped in meat. In 1983, punk legends the Undertones released a compilation titled All Wrapped Up with a female model covered in meat. And in 1988, Don Fleming’s arch rock outfit B.A.L.L. released a pastiche of that Beatles cover with their Bird album. If you ask us, Gaga is keeping some good company here.
