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."

I am a Lady Gaga fan and certainly sympathetic to PETA. But the way this PETA executive has treated Gaga, his threats, his bullying is not acceptable. And it seems that people are using this to spout all kinds of hatred. What in the world has this person ever done to you.

Wow! Looks like someone can't hold an argument with a real debate, and resorts to calling people "ugly" to make her point. Gaga is a true artist, song writer, musician, and a classically trained pianist in case you didn't know. And Kardashian did press charges- the woman that flour bombed her has a history of arrests and is a fanatic- and they pulled out of their campaign with PETA. Maybe you should do some research before you start posting your extremely intellectual position about animal rights.... oh right. That's what this article is actually about. Respecting others opinions. But given your very thought out response I'm not surprised you didn't catch that one.

Lady Gaga is just as untalented as Kim Kardashian with the only difference is that Gaga is ugly. Why is she talking about some fake publicity stunt that Kim orchestrated months ago to generate sympathy for her filthy ass? She never pressed charges on the alleged attacker although she got a fews news articles out of saying she would.
