    the problem people had i think was not at the fact that she wore fur but at the fact she said on ellen she hated it ?

    • Chr%C3%ADss
      Chríss

      YES. THIS IS IT FOR ME! Thank you, Marc. You nailed it. The problem is the woeful hypocrisy of it... It leads to other doubts. This is worse than the time she decried feminists, then went on to be a feminist - that was excusable as a slip of the tongue. This... This is just rank hypocrisy.

      So true! She hated fur, hated celebrities... Well, she's young, like most of us, and she probably everyday gets to know things about her she didn't know yet. But I think she disappointed a lot of people by showing she is not, whom she said she was. I think the age, and the fact she just wanted to be different/fresh meat (lol), made her say things and be things she just wasn't. And that should be okay, cause we all have said and done things that we wouldn't do at this point in our life. She's just human, we should try not to forget that. (I know that's hard, 'cause sometimes there is nothing human about her) But, you understand what I mean. She has done nothing wrong, she just gets to know herself better, and so are we.

      To be honest I couldnt give a fuck what she does i will like her regardless, but its when she contradicts herself it makes you think well is everything else you said true, she doesnt like celebrities yet shes hanging out with lindsay lohan and other fame whores, she claims to hate hollywood and what its about yet she tweets last week she loves if she just stuck by some of the things she said maybe all the other things wouldnt seem like a farce or put on in front of the cameras

      @Chríss: But I thought it was already confirmed that it was fake. I think she's trying to say that even if she says it was fake it wont make a difference because she still wears skins of other animals.

      @Lindsey: That would have been very commendable! And I also like how she's not going to be bullied by a fanatical campaigner - I also love how she flipped the media off with her response. And I'm not even one of those people who believe she should champion animal rights- this should only be done by the people who have a natural inclination toward such a stance, or it just isn't genuine. The problem is in her response, when she brazenly declares she'd wear live-skinned fur in the future. This isn't leather or ostrich or meat, this is up to 60 animals being skinned alive to make a coat. I don't sit comfortably with that.

  • Irenn+Montana+Germanotta

    To me, nothing can justify the indulged suffering of a living creature.
    We, as humans sharing this planet with the rest of the living surface, we don't have any rights to mistreat an animal who can't even defend itself. 
    It is monstrous to see how people choice to sacrifice an animal's life, body, soul and joy in vain. And it doesn't matter if it's about art, it doesn't matter if it's fashion. As artists, we all ask for respect... But aren't we already being hypocritical by deciding not to respect the animals, just because they don't have the voice to demand their respect and rights? 
    It is even kind of ignorance when someone choices to stand for a creature's unimaginable suffering, when the science has actually developed synthetic fibers that look extremely real? Think deeply about it!

    • Liam+R.+Findlay
      Liam R. Findlay

      True! Gaga's statement says, more or less, that she doesn't actually care about the animals that have been killed for her clothing because it's 'piece de resistance', because it's art, because it's enjoyable. There is no actual thought about the basics- a helpless life has been ended for this simple piece of clothing. It is harder to trust her as a spokesperson for equality and a brave, peaceful world when not a shit is given about these LIVES that are taken for the purpose of the petty pleasure of a human. And multiple killings- for leather, for meat. And the animals have no way of escaping this.

      @Liam R. Findlay: i mean, this is going out on a limb, but Jason Holmes could easily say that his shooting up a movie theater was his 'piece de resistance' or some sort of social commentary, or even art. murder is murder plain and simple and seeing gaga try to over intelectualize this is really disheartening. i mean, the westboro baptist church could call what they do "art" too.

    • Liam+R.+Findlay
      Liam R. Findlay

      @bridget: That is a very good point indeed. I would like to know what GaGa's moral reasoning is beyond the excuse of art/pleasure, because that is not really an assuring answer. It's basically like saying 'because it's fun', 'because I like it'. That doesn't excuse the basic fact that there are deaths for this clothing. So far, I personally see this as unjustified.

      Gaga, I am a strict vegetarian (not vegan though), and animal rights are equally important for me as human rights, since I believe, that every creature on this planet should be treated equally, and we all come from mother nature, therefore it is essential that we respect it. BUT it is in no way affecting my relationship with you, as I respect all the human beings and their beliefs, as long as those are not being expressed in an offensive way. I deeply respect your honesty and bravery, and you are not a hypocrite at all. Most of the people attack me for being vegetarian, just because they feel intimidated by me and think I view myself in any way superior to them. And it takes a very strong personality, mind and confidence to admit, that you support a philosophy without following the rules of it. And this is much more important for me, because at the end of the day it's all about the kinder and braver world. I respect non-vegetarians, because it is their choice, as long as they respect me. And I believe Gaga that you are the most amazing and the kindest human being in the world, and nothing could ever change the way I feel about you. Whatever it is you do, I know, that it is an intelligent choice of yours, and you are doing the right thing! Words can't express how much I respect and adore you for everything you do and say, and I know that all of the true monsters feel the same way. We are all different and this is what makes us the same. We are family. And family loves you and supports you no matter what happens! So do what you think is right girl, because you are never wrong! :))) You are perfect! Love you forever Mother Monster! xxxxxx

      @Yuyi's Glitter: Yes, people have the right to wear what they want and express their opinions. But what about the ANIMALS? We have to be a voice for the voiceless, and speak up for them because they cannot speak up for themselves. When powerful people like Lady Gaga make a statement that wearing fur is acceptable, she is influencing millions of others to aspire to wear fur too.. and because of that, millions and MILLIONS of innocent animals will suffer and die.

  • Erika+DLZ
    Erika DLZ

    Animals in fashion? More like victims of fashion.The reality behind that comment is that those innocent creatures don't have a voice or say in choosing to be "in" fashion. I think it's vain and disgusting to see a beautiful animal skinned for the latest trend, but that's why I don't wear it. You chose to do so. And that's where we disconnect on the matter.

    Sorry Gaga, but you're becoming extremely vain. I thought you believed in the animal rights cause...if a freakin fur coat can cause you to "bend", I wonder what other temptations you will be unable to resist. How do we know your morals won't bend on the other causes you claim to believe in?

    • Liam+R.+Findlay
      Liam R. Findlay

      It's as if letting her beliefs 'bend' is another way of saying she doesn't truly care. Like it's easy to say you support faux fur when you've never used real fur just like it's easy to say you're anti-war when you've never been involved in one. The way she's turned back on this so suddenly implies that those values weren't really truly there to begin with. Which isn't surprising as the meat dress and all the leather never implied that she really cared about the animals that were killed for her to wear.

    • Lindsey

      I agree, it's messed up. If the animals died from natural causes or EVEN in a not-tortured way, I might give the benefit of the doubt. But celebrating more animals being born into suffering just to be skinned alive and tortured for a coat, not okay. I don't care what excuse she can think of.

  • none

    I am sad that you stand up so tall for people who are bullied yet you fall for fashion regardless of the abuse or pain that an animal will feel all to make something as frivolous as a fur coat. You say "save the flour to make bread for the children who are hungry." How many meals could the money you spend on a fur coat buy for a needy child? I have always loved you but I must say, your failure to respect the lives of animals for fashion has really disappointed me.

    • Liam+R.+Findlay
      Liam R. Findlay

      I completely agree. It is wonderful to support people no matter what body they were born into, but animals do not choose to be born animals, nor do they choose to be killed and it's unfair.

      Again I am not wanting to voice much of my opinion on this for my own reason but you make a very strong argument there with the feeding the kids thing. I'm sure a lot could have eaten for the price of that coat. It made me think about my spending. How many people could have eaten for the price of this Macbook? How many could have eaten and maybe gotten some health care for the price of my car? How many could have felt the warmth of a full belly and a roof over their head for the price of my tuition? I could go on and on. This is a very humbling thought process for me. Thank you!

      exactly. i couldn't have said it better myself. & not to mention that at the end of the day, we are all animals. thus, we fight for our rights, but not those of other animals that are being skinned for a silly coat? how would someone like us feel if we were hunted down & skinned so that we could be made into a coat? i'm sure it wouldn't be pleasant, & if it was against humans then everyone would be against it. the fact that we can fight so hard for human rights but shun those of animals...it's deplorable. gaga, you have to stand for both, or your point in fighting for human rights is moot. falling for fashion like some love struck little girl is quite sad :\ "if you don't stand for something then you will fall for anything."

      @Daina Wierzbinski: ''but not those of other animals that are being skinned for a silly coat'' I fucking love this hehe you're so right it's nothing but a silly coat.I mean there are other fabrics that protects us from the cold and look AMAZING when you use them as fashion materials.SO why skinning poor,helpless animals? They need their fur,they aren't able to make coats with other fabrics like we can do.Ahh.It's just so wrong and sad.

    • Daina+Wierzbinski
      Daina Wierzbinski

      @Aygülü †: thanks :) i just find it silly, sad, & a touch hypocritical that we fight so hard for human rights, but seem to forget that humans are animals as well. so we can't fight for other animal rights? something as basic as not killing them for their fur...that seems pretty easy to me. no one would go around hunting humans for their skin these days (if they ever had in the past?), so why do we find it necessary to hunt animals for their fur? & you're right, we can make use of MANY other fabrics that can look just as glamorous but don't involve the pain of electrocuting, skinning, & killing animals. pain & cruelty free clothing is the only way to go.

    Well talking about world hunger the meat and dairy industry are the number one cause for world hunger and global warming ..that being said onward to the fur discussion - agreed something made out of pain and suffering can be an amazing work of art however by that token ...have any of you ever seen the intricate lampshades made of human skin from gassed Jews in the third Reich ? just because they are beutiful does not mean it is ok to posses one and support that branch of trade. the same goes for fur my dear most of these animals where electrocuted through the anus and skinned alive where they take about 10-15 minutes to die... you are a role model and where you go many will follow because people tend to look for someone to emulate. Sadly you have just helped this world become a little darker , you response shows that you have chosen to be a world destroyer and it is a shame . if you where mindless and stupid there could be some form of excuse but you are not ! you obliviously put some thought into this and decided that you do not care about the suffering you help create. it is sad but I guess to be expected . I agree however with the sentiment that there is no difference between using fur or leather ..however you chose the side of selfish pleasure over responsibility and kindness its something you will one day have to face ...

    • Chr%C3%ADss

      You know I was with you until you started to get crazy. 'A world destroyer' and the like. It's absolutely ridiculous rhetoric. She shouldn't be wearing fur, that's a fact. The hyperbole you employ only serves to weaken your argument.

    • ThePiratesbride
      ThePiratesbride

      @Chríss: Look it is simple anyone who chooses to still eat meat and dairy after the 2008 UN report , or those who kill other co-inhabitants of this planet for selfish pleasure is wilfully destroying the habitat for all ! what other then a World-destroyer does it make ? in the end I cannot force people to care but I will call it out as what it is ..there is no sugar coating it ...read the report please ... as much as i love animals this is no longer only about Animal cruelty and at this point has nothing to do with personal choices ! If an action a person does impacts the well-being of all it no longer can be seen as an act or right of choice !

      ThePiratesbride

      @Ryan: In terms of suffering why not ? why is the suffering of an animal worth less than that of a human ? because we are the dominant species ? because we are smarter than they are ? a pig is smarter than a baby , with that argumentation does that make the pigs life more important till the child reaches a higher cognitive level ? please explain why you think animals have less right to live a protected unharmed life ? Because you enjoy eating them ? wearing them ? if that is your argumentation then i have made my point - we humans treat this planet and its other inhabitants like toys and expendable structures just because we can ...It does not make it right ..nor justifiable ...nor does it make the suffering that we inflict on others of our own species less or more disheartening ..it just shows us how ugly we are and how we need to evolve out of this ! As for the lampshade comment I just wanted to highlight how absurd the "its art and therefore ok" comment was . Art that violates another being without consent is never justifiable period ! I mean think about it what if I decided to grab you and cut off all your hair and turn it into an installation...or cut off a chink of your skin to do so ...would it be justifiable ? And again i can hear the but I am human that is different comment...but why is it different ? because it is publicly established norm ? 60 years ago segregation was publicly established norm ...300 years ago they debated if women had a soul or not and a higher form of sentience ...where they right ? or did we just finally evolve out of our own limited span of reasoning? Galileo was punished for saying that the earth revolves around the sun , he was ridiculed and people wanted him segregated and dead for it . that popular opinion was 99% against him did not change the fact that he was right ...emotions are all good and fine and fuzzy ... but logically there is no difference between the suffering of any being and ours , logically there is no reason we should be allowed to claim territory and dominion over any other being ..we just do because we can and we justify it with our emotional attachment to those behaviours ... it does not make it right nor does it make it even productive if we are to survive as spices...it is time we start growing up and taking irresponsibility for our actions ...this does not mean that we have to become hippies dressed in burlap and singing kumbaja, it does however mean that we should show the world how to be fabulous and make our mark by harming as little beings and our habitat as possible...do we want to be parasites or ground breaking forces for positive change ? do we want to follow in the usual human paths established for thousands of years or do we want to create new avenues? I used to love Gaga because she wanted to explore everything she could be but also was a definite force of positive agenda ... what she has done for gay and lesbian youth was and is remarkable ...but by that token by becoming mother to them she has also taken irresponsibility for their young impressionable minds ...to quote Antoine de Saint-Exupéry in the little prince " you are responsible for what you tame! " She and all monsters are now connected and as leader she needs to realise that her actions have consequences not only for herself but for those she leads and obviously mentors ... it is as simple or as complicated as that ...

      @ThePiratesbride: You hold extremist views. Since you like to take your argument off the cliff, allow me to present you a question using a similar tactic: if there was a piglet and a human baby drowning, and for whatever reason, you can only save one, which would it be? It greatly saddens me to think that you'd have difficulty choosing. It deeply worries me when I consider what your choice would be. A human life is higher than that of an animal's for the simple FACT of sentience. We think therefore we are, we feel therefore we believe.

      @Chríss: To answer your question it depends as human I am fallible so i guess i would go for the being i know meaning if I love one of them I will go for it ...If I love both I would go for the nearest one ...if both are at the same distance I have no idea what i would do .
      As for sentience there is ample scientific evidence that animals are very aware of themselves and value their lives, they feel just as strongly as we do. About 15 years ago a chip whose baby dies asked her handler where her baby went in sign language when she presented them with the baby’s corpse...
      How does one prove sentience in someone who’s language one does not even speak and who perceives this world vastly different from us ... example take a child with severe autism who cannot communicate- under the normal criteria for sentience they would fail - does that make them unfeeling ? , your argumentation is faulty and shows a lack of education! What you becry as fact is mere speculation set up to ease the conscience of those who abuse...
      I simply do not think that any life is higher than another...Period ...I am aware that I live in a realm where our survival is based on the possible destruction of others but it does not make it right? while i am not good enough a being to stop existing to avoid harming all I do strive to create as little suffering to any lifeform I can . If that is extremist I am happy to be one ...considering that the mainstream consists of killing, raping (milk production is fostered by repeated rape of cows) maiming other beings, the starvation of human children for the pallet and pleasure of the more fortunate and the destruction of our habitat. Are you aware that we have decimated 90% of our oceans aquatic inhabitants in the last 150 years? How is that not extreme? But fine label me as you like because you feel the need to hang to on to your speciesist world view, history will eventually prove how toxic and wrong we where ..Like the question of female sentience, animal sentience will be proven it’s just a matter of time.

      Do you know that there were so called scientific studies that augmented that blacks were not sentient ...how absurd this sounds to us today ...but people augmented much like you do today ... and you could say it was before the day and age of DNA ...the problem with that is that human females are genetically closer to their chimpanzee counter parts than to males of our own species...what does that say? does that prove that the fools 300 years ago where right and woman are not sentient ? Or does that point to that we maybe not so bloody superior after all as a race?

    Gaga, I may not agree with the statement about viewing real fur or leather as art (for me its disgusting) but I like the way you handled this. We need to get off our high horses, we all have flaws, we're all hypocrites. Its human nature. I feel the way some fans reacted was very unjustified too. I love you, and it makes me happy you took time to reflect on this.

      I love this! If this was handled the way that you're handling it, things would have been so much easier. I appreciate everyones individual beliefs and concerns but things were taken way too far. There is having your own beliefs and opinions then there is simply being way too over-dramatic, I didn't agree with people verbally attacking her about it. Like she said; she respects our views, we should at least respect hers too. xo

    • Madisen%E2%98%AF+%E2%98%AA+%E2%80%A0+%E2%98%BE+%E2%98%BA

      @Nina: ...... ok u obviously have no idea. animals in a fur factory arent healthy to begin with because they are abused. and ther would never be a fur coat wer the animal naturally died. The animals live ther full "lives" in smalll cages, not taken care of (so no quality of life) beatin to death (after being electricuted) and r skinned alive. if u ask me this is the exact opposite of showing respect to "gods creation".

    • Wendy+Lee
      Wendy Lee

      @Nina: @Nina: Unfortunately, the sad truth is that designers do NOT make fur coats out of animals who have died from natural causes. Animals killed for their fur are anally electrocuted, bludgeoned, and often skinned alive... all for the sake of "fashion." The skin that Gaga is wearing came from an animal who suffered, felt pain, and didn't want to die. The best way to respect animals and admire their beauty is to give them peace and freedom.

    • Olivia+Lgagapez-Schaber

      I agree. But blatant support of fur trade, I don't think I can look past... ALL designers want to dress her which means animals being killed for something they were born with will increase. She's got to loud of a voice to just "ask for privacy"....

      @Nina: Can you prove this theory? Can you show me the place where there animals are living peacefully and once one falls dead, someone peacefully removes it's hide to be made into a jacket? Do you know how many hides it takes to make a coat of the size she wears?!?!!?!??

      since when sticking for your views and trying not to be a hypocrite being a diva? I'm sure you're a saint when it comes to treating animals, but are you brazen enough to say you are just as righteous in other departments? Gaga is not being a diva. She is merely standing up for her views and what she believes she has a right in expressing. are you going to judge her for being confident enough to expose her opinions on a controversial issue? Isn't that why she is such a powerful figure for gay activists? for feminists? are you going to call her a diva in those aspects? Please remember that this is one view of many, and that she still represents that kind, humble, and strong icon that we looked up to since 2008

    Gaga, Honestly, (speaking as an equal) if we really do want a "kinder, braver world" is wearing fur the correct way to go about it? In all honestly, I think if you want to be the revolutionary human that I know you are and that everyone hopes you will be, I honestly think that you should not just make hate and abuse intolerant in the human race, but in all the world. It's not respectful to wear a deceased mans skin for a hat so (honestly asking) what is the difference between a "piece de resistance" of chinchilla fur and a heels made out of human bones...but it's artwork right? There are THREE things I love in my life and those are: GAGA, TRAVELING, and NON-HUMAN ANIMALS. God created us as equal beings of the Earth. Did Adam and Eve eat meat before The Devil enticed Eve to eat from The Forbidden Fruit? No. When sin was brought into the world, animals killed each other for nutrition and clothing. Just because you can vocally express yourself does not give you the right to support the slaughter of animals that are "below" you in the man-made heirarchy of the species. And as a loyal little monster, I am just telling you this: If you want to be a the revolution of our generation, dont just love and accept those who look and speak like you, love+respect+honor all...and respecting the deceased does not mean wearing their "piece de resistance" Would you wear Fozzi? YOU THINK THE ONLY PEOPLE WHO ARE PEOPLE ARE THE PEOPLE WHO LOOK AND THINK LIKE YOU...BUT IF YOU WALK THE FOOTSTEPS OF A STRANGER, YOU'LL LEARN THINGS YOU NEVER KNEW YOU NEVER KNEW.

    It is what it is. People all have different views about fur and leather. I personally do not mind leather because the meat will be used. Most animals that are used for fur though would not be eaten. Along with the fact that it only takes one cow to make a leather coat and it takes at least 60 mink to make one coat.

    You have said multiple times: If you have revolutionary potential, that: (& I quote, directly from your mouth) you have a MORAL obligation to make the world a better place. I've heard you say this many times. With your POWER fame, and money you have a responsibility to make the world a safer kinder more gentler place, than tell me again how you justify skinning alive, killing and brutally murdering animals for fashion and art???? The meat dress doesn't count because it was killed for food and not for you to wear. Apparently being Fabulous is more important to you than your self perceived "moral obligations" I don't think it's fair of you to bring up the people who are hungry, you buying these ridiculous items means that you are part of that problem. Which in itself is an entirley different conversation. I am of your peer group and I admire your talent's on so many levels, but I'm not going to sit here and be like your minion little monsters where they protect you no matter what.

    Gaga much respect and all...but you did promise on national television not to wear fur, as well as appearing on a bilboard about the issue. I disagree with wearing any animal as clothing, but you made a point of singling out FUR a couple of years ago. As much as i understand the fact that people, are welcome to, and WILL always change opinions on various issues, the idea of you wearing real fur after your 'promise' disquiets me. I have always looked up to you as a role model- i believe that art does have it's limits, and if the fur was real, you have just, in my view, crossed a line. You have betrayed me, but I'm still in love with you Judas. I can only hope you make amends! <3

    I agree that no dead animal should have more of a fuss made over it than another; I thought that with the meat dress when Cher wore leather on the same night.

All this irrelevant stuff shes revealing about peronsal life and relationships is also completely against what gaga used to stand for.

Unless you're Gaga herself or one of her close friends then you probably have little to no idea (aside from the kind of speculation we are engaging in) what the new era is about or what the music will be like.

I still love you for what you've done for us and your inspiring work, of course, but I am not going to lie about this and I have to tell you that I feel disappointed by you. I respect your opinion and I know that you wearing fake fur is not going to make the world a better place, but I feel that everyone should be concerned about animal rights, and you are a very inspirational person that could embrace them in order to spread them.

    I have to be honest and say that I'm really shocked at so many things you have done lately. I always looked up to you and considered you a role model, but that has changed. First of all, after working with Kim Kardashian I have no idea how you can say she is fabulous. She is one of the most self absorbed and rudest people I have ever come across. And hanging out with someone like Lohan is equally shocking. She does nothing to give back to the community. Smoking weed in public when you have young fans that copy everything you do is just a shame. You talk about being yourself, yet you get plastic surgery and change your entire look. And now that you are wearing fur and have no regard for animals is just a shame. You talk about not being into money yet you sport around in a $110,000 car and wear clothes that cost more than most peoples yearly income. I thought you were different but you are just proving to be like every other celebrity and it's quite sad. You have lost me as a fan.

    I feel like crying right now. I'm starting to think you really are just in it for the attention like everyone who doesn't like you claims. You stand up so much for people who are bullied, but you treat animals as worthless beings. I wish I could still be a fan, but animals will always come first for me. I will NEVER respect your "view" that an animal looks better as a fashion item than a living creature, and I know a lot of people are with me. Not to mention you are a hypocrite for claiming you would never wear fur on several instances. Putting my paws down for good. I thought you were better than this. I will always love your music.

    Dearest Mother Monster,
    I don’t know if you remember me, I met you in LA on December 23, 2010 at your Fame Monster Ball with 40 other people that had meet and greet passes. I LOVE YOU to pieces, so much so I have an entire room in my home dedicated to you. The state or WI knows I love you as my car’s license plate is GAGA-LVR. I've been a huge fan since 2007. When you're alone, I've been alone too. I'm proud of you in so many ways, you’ve set out to make changes and you’ve been successful, which most pop-icons can’t say. They have fans, you have little monsters. Us little monsters have true love for you in our hearts. You are at the center of our community. I’ve also been over the moon that you have a furry little companion, Fozzi that is blessed to be part of your family. But I can’t hide my heartbreak at all the fur you’ve been wearing. The torture the animals go through for you to wear them is unimaginable. You stand for so many wonderful and brilliant things that you’re too good to support the fur trade. You have a foundation that promotes peace and acceptance. Does that not include creatures like Fozzi? You, my idol, my mother are reversing the work for animal rights that I and MILLIONS of others have been fighting for, for years and years. Millions all over the world are fighting the good fight for the voiceless and that includes the most ignored victims, the animals on fur farms. They exist never being able to run, or jump and die in VERY inhumane ways. I cry at the thought. You are the queen of many things including fashion and have a bright spotlight on you with the power to make yet another change; STOP WEARING FUR. I’m many things; little monster, wife, animal advocate, smart, funny, vegetarian and a free bitch. Because I’m a little monster and you wore a meat dress I was ridiculed for being a hypocrite and still, I understood your message and I supported you, but I don’t support the message you’re sending now by wearing fur. What is the message anyway? Wearing fur makes you rich? Makes you famous? Makes you glamorous? The animals you’re wearing and the ones waiting to die deserve to be what I am; FREE.
    I have been willing to look past the fact that you've been seen with Lindsay Lohan, whom I have ZERO respect for, but I don’t know if I can get past this. I respect you and your choices, but because all designers want to dress you, the animal kingdom is in trouble… I think your response is smug. I’d never associate you with a “fuck you, including my fans” kind of response.

    First time Gaga's ever disappointed me. I love her, but i will never agree on someone wearing real fur. Even if i got the chance to meet her and i wanted a picture with her, if she was wearing fur i couldnt. I love you Gaga, but i love my morals too.

    Sorry Gaga, but I don't agree. I'm not vegan or vegetarian, but I really love all the animals, and I hate all the type of real fur. Sorry. Also, Kim Kardashian it's not fabulous, she's stupid, and ugh i hate her. But I still love you, even if I don't understand your choice.

    I don't agree with your fur statement!

    Don't get me wrong I love the queen but her recent post did not convince me, what if her dog was skinned alive to make a nice little winter hat? I think its inhumane and its promoting something that its not cool at all. By buying products that were made using the horrible skinning process, it promotes more sales for those fashion houses, which means more animals are going to be killed in the name of "fashion". Really upsets me. And no kim kardashian is not fabulous, she's are whore.

    I like you so much, but I cannot agree with this. \= animals are not ours...they are not for us to use as clothes. and kim kadarshian is just a futile person.

    I'm vegan and I've never minded seeing you wear anything, real fur/skin or not. I think you should do what you want, as long as you have an understanding for it, don't let other people make you feel guilty for it. Besides, wearing animal is the same as eating it, and most people who hate seeing fur coats eat meat, or think nothing of leather. Don't worry about it. <3

      Exactly! I love your post!

      I think IT IS a difference if you wear real fur, or just eat it. And it also makes a difference HOW you wear it. I'm not trying to create another discussion, it's just my opinion.

      @Kaley da Silva: How so? The animals are killed in both cases, and in both cases, it is not vital for people to do. Meat eating has a far more negative impact on the environment than fur farms do. If you want some information on it I can gladly give you some, I'm only here to educate if people are curious, not guilt trip anyone.

      @Stefani A. McDade: It is perhaps arguable that parading the skins of a dead animal is a worse influence than eating meat, although I agree that they have similar implications.

      @Kaley da Silva: What is the difference between killing an animal...... and killing an animal? Regardless of what you are going to do with the animal it is still being killed.

    Thank you Gaga for posting this, you handled it very well. I don't agree though that you view dead animals as art. But I still love you and even more for being so honest with us. <3

    Would you like that tomorrow someone will take a coat Fozzi family? I'm sure not. Gaga! Please STOP! it's not cool. It's not ok. Stop! Do not continue using fur. It's very cruel. One thing is dressing up as Cruella de Vil and quite another to be, and you're not. You're a good person and a great artist but your quality as a person is being put on trial. We all love you and we are sure the great caring person you are and what beam shown. But all that you achieved with your hands as these destroy your feet. I Love you Gaga. Think a little what I said and apologize if it becomes annoying but it's what I think....

    At the end of the day, death for pleasure is not a nice thing! And it certainly is not equal, nor does it reflect a safe, brave world.

    Hi Gaga So even though I don't really come on this site I am a huge fan. I even camped out to meet you. I just wanted to say that I wish u would reconsider the fur. I've always thought fur was cruel. It's just something I believe in.I am not gonna tell you what to do but I hope your concert won't have fur or real dead animals cause it would offend those of us who have animal rights beliefs and your last tour was so liberating. Thanks!
