The 'Born This Way' hitmaker puts herself 'in a category as one who appreciates and adores the beauty of animals in fashion, but am not a strict vegan.'
Lady GaGa comes to Kim Kardashian's defense. The Mother Monster slams the animal-right activist who flour-bombed the reality TV star on a red-carpet event earlier this year. "To campaigners, Save your flour to make bread for the children who are hungry. And Kim Kardashian is fabulous," she states.
GaGa says she respects her fans' anti-fur view, and pleads with them to respect hers in return. "I want you to know that I care deeply about your feelings and views, and I will always support your philosophies about life," she gushes. "I respect your views, please respect mine."
"I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I would think it hypercritical not to acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, 'kermit' and not to mention meat, that I have already worn."
"This should already put me in a category as one who appreciates and adores the beauty of animals in fashion, but am not a strict vegan. I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, especially I have never been able to afford a nice one, but this does not mean my morals are rigid and that I won't bend at the sight of an absolute art piece of a coat."
"I have no chains about this. You see a carcass, I see a museum piece de resistance," the Monster ringleader additionally says. "But I am truly sorry to fans who are upset by this, its a fair and applaudable feeling about the health and safety of animals."
"I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for ANY CAUSE. Particularly one that I respect. Animal Rights," she fires back. Her statement has since drawn mixed responses. One says, "She's got one thing incorrect...Kim Kardashian is nowhere near fabulous."
