You can always count on Lady Gaga to get people talking about her fashion choices, although the buzz created by her third dress at last night's VMAs may well have been flies. Designer Franc Fernandez has confirmed that the head/stomach-turning gown she wore during her final outfit change of the night was, in fact, made of real meat.
Gaga explained her reasons for wearing the dress to Ellen DeGeneres, saying:
"However, it has many interpretations, but 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 our own bones. And I am not a piece of meat."
Personally, I think Lady Gaga is a creative genius who knows exactly how to get attention and keep her fans waiting to see what she'll do next. Love it or hate it, the meat dress was one of the only standout moments in what ended up being a fairly blah VMA event. Despite what PETA may have to say, pretty much all publicity is good publicity when it comes to the entertainment industry.
The question is, how can she possibly outdo this outfit? What can she come up with next that will continue to fuel the water-cooler chatter? I came up with a few ideas, just in case Ms. Gaga needed some inspiration.
Bikini made from human feces. Disgusting, you say? Absolutely repulsive, offensive, unthinkable, how could I even suggest such a thing? Oh, I know. It would be horrendous. And people would talk about it for YEARS.
A speculum. Hey, don't look at ME like that. I'm not the one convinced she has a penis hidden away in there.
Gown formed entirely of deconstructed previously outrageous awards show outfits. Everything from Björk’s dead swan outfit to J.Lo's cut-to-below-the-navel dress to Drew Barrymore's droopy-boob green Gravitron gown could all be represented in a cleverly designed outfit. A string here, a feather there, a single Bob Mackie sequin. It would be so meta.
A collection of strategically placed Madonna albums. Well, because she owes Madge a thing or two, you know?
Sweatpants, a t-shirt, and a ponytail. OH MY GOD YOU GUYS CAN YOU EVEN IMAGINE.
Do you think Lady Gaga's going to be able to come up with something even more shocking than the meat dress?
