Lady Gaga criticised by PETA for dressing pet dog Asia in heavy costume jewellery
The singer is unsurprisingly criticised by the animal welfare charity yet again
What with her raw meat-wearing, taxidermy-accessorising, fur-donning sartorial penchant, it’s fair to assume Lady Gaga and PETA are not the best of friends.
The pop star has been criticised by the animal welfare charity yet again this weekend, after she shared several Instagram photographs of her pet French bulldog Asia draped in heavy designer costume jewellery.
"Lady Gaga may choose to decorate herself with elaborate and even uncomfortable outfits, but Asia doesn’t get to make that choice," PETA wrote in a statement via its official website.
"Though it seems pretty clear that Lady Gaga loves Asia, we think Asia — and all dogs — are adorable without all the added flair."
This was a somewhat tame response from the charity, who accused the singer of having “no heart” when she stepped out in a scarf with a fox’s head attached to it in 2012.
"Meat is the decomposing flesh of a tormented animal who didn’t want to die," the group said of her now infamous MTV Awards meat dress in 2010.
But PETA weren’t the only charity to be riled by Gaga’s animal exhibitionism.
"We are shocked to see the pictures of this puppy adorned with heavy jewellery," Paula Boyden, the veterinary director of the Dog’s Trust, said.
"Dressing dogs in pseudo-human clothing not only ridicules and makes a spectacle of them but treats them as a fashion accessory rather than a living animal."
A spokesperson for Lady Gaga has declined to comment.
Last week, Gaga came under fire from human charities after leaked footage of her Terry Richardson-shot video for R Kelly collaboration “Do What U Want” featured a scene that appeared to condone rape.
R Kelly plays Gaga’s predatory doctor in the clip. He is seen telling the singer: “I’m putting you under, and when you wake up, you’re going to be pregnant.”
In another clip from the video, Gaga asks Kelly if she’ll ever be able to walk again – a reference to her real-life hip injury – to which he says: “Yes, if you let me do whatever I want with your body,” the New York Post’s Page Six reports.
