Lady Gaga Blasted by PETA for Buying Fur in Russia
After splurging on a fur-filled shopping spree in Russia over the weekend, Lady Gaga has incurred the wrath of PETA again (December 18).
The "Born this Way" singer reportedly purchased a sable coat worth about $210,000 and a silver fox coat worth around $19,600 at the Helen Yarmak store in Moscow.
After hearing of the buys, PETA told Gossip Cop, "Out of place, out of time, and possibly out of her mind: While the country focuses on rejecting violence and we are deep into the season of peace, giving, and kindness, Gaga is busy decking herself out in a coat made of at least 30 slaughtered animals’ skins.”
However, the comment isn't likely to phase the 26-year-old pop star. In August, the animal rights organization called her a "turncoat" for telling Ellen Degeneres she didn't wear fur, but then being seen wearing it in public appearances. In response, the outspoken Gaga replied, "You see a carcass, I see a museum piece de resistance."
