Maybe we’re sticklers for sanitary environments, but the news that the meat-covered dress Lady Gaga wore last night to the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards dress was real meat is just… ick. The designer of the dress, Franc Fernandez, confirmed to MTV that the potential germfest was constructed of meat from his family butcher. Grab the bleach! “The dress is indeed real meat from my family butcher. Glad it went so well,” he told MTV this morning.
Let’s just hope that every seat Gaga sat on — from her spot at the Nokia LIVE Theatre to Ellen DeGEneres’ interview chair — and every surface she touched (microphones, moonmen, people) after having her hands on her meat-draped waist was thoroughly sanitized and de-germed. Anything else would just be, yeah, really really gross.
After the awards were said and done, Gaga took her beef parade on over to Ellen’s show to proclaim that she wore the dress to convey the message that she’s not a piece of meat.
Funny, because we have a feeling PETA is going to make her into chopped liver after this fashion foie gras — er, faux pas!
