Lady Gaga has received the opportunity to once again grace the cover of VOGUE Magazine’s September issue. The Born This Way artist is wrapping up her tour overseas and is expected to come to Europe and The States very soon. She recently announced her enticing, black perfume Fame, and her new album title ARTPOP. Gaga is brewing many things for an extraordinary return – although she hasn’t left, but it feels like forever.
PETA Senior VP, Dan Mathews, recently wrote a letter to Gaga about her current use of fur. The heated letter claims Gaga to be a liar since she once stated she doesn’t wear fur.
Many of your gay fans, I among them, have long admired what you told Ellen: “I hate fur, and I don’t wear fur.” I included a link because these recent photos of you in fox and rabbit and with a wolf carcass make it appear that you have amnesia. I’m also including this brief video hosted by Tim Gunn showing the violent cruelty that you promote when you wear fur. What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it’s fake, or are you a turncoat? Many gays are animal advocates because we recognize that the same arrogance and indifference that some have toward animal suffering has at times been directed toward us personally because of our orientation. PETA has long participated in Pride events around the country, and just last week, we helped lead protests against Chick-fil-A. But by wearing those dumb furs in a heat wave, you’re making yourself a target just like the mindless Kim Kardashian. As we plan our fall campaigns, please tell us whether what you gracefully told Ellen was heartfelt or just a pose.
We await your reply.
I guess Gaga has some explaining to do.
