Yes, Lady Gaga's meat dress was made of real meat

Lady-gaga-meat-moonman Seems Lady Gaga really did show us the beef Sunday night at the 2010 Video Music Awards. Her third dress of the night was made of "real meat from my family butcher," designer Franc Fernandez told MTV Style on Monday.

Check out what the ensemble looks like draped on a mannequin at Fernandez's blog, where there's also a close-up of the coordinating crystal-encrusted meat purse, and let us know what you think, in our meat-dress poll.

If you're in the mood for the fast-food version of the story instead of partaking in that sit-down meal, click on past the break below for a shot of the backside of the dress -- it looks as if someone may have grabbed fixings for a sandwich before Gaga took the stage -- and a detail of presenter Cher clutching the meat purse while the younger pop star accepted her Moonman.

Oh yes, we also included a close-up of the shoes, but do make sure your lunch is settled before you view it. Not sure if the whole outfit was considered "leftovers" by the time Gaga sat down backstage Sunday to chat with Ellen DeGeneres, but by the time the interview aired Monday? We say that's a yes.

At this point, just on principle, the Ministry would like to take back anything negative we might have implied about Rita Wilson's Emmy Awards getup.

PREACH IT! Taylor Swift fools (almost) everyone

Taylor-swift-vma Say! Let’s check out the headlines and see what made news at the Video Music Awards!

"Taylor Swift forgives Kanye West in a song," declared Radar this morning. "Taylor Swift absolves," the Washington Post confirmed. And via MTV, the outfit that hosted the VMAs and the celebrities in question: "Taylor Swift sings 'forgiveness' song to Kanye at VMAs."

Zowie. A trend, says I.

And also, a mystery: Because, good Lord, what MTV VMA show did these people watch? The one we saw did indeed feature Swift singing a painfully self-indulgent song while strumming a guitar stolen from a steampunk convention. But it certainly wasn’t a ditty of forgiveness. Not unless you also consider Winona Ryder and Gwyneth Paltrow to be soul mates who just had a couple of misunderstandings.

Swift’s lyrics went like this:

Lady Gaga wears a meat dress — need we say more? [poll]

Gaga-and-cher Lady Gaga wore a meat dress at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday. When she collected her video of the year award, she asked Cher to hold her meat purse. Ellen DeGeneres offered the pop star a veggie bikini during a chat afterward. And on Monday, PETA announced it was grossed out — something about the likelihood of maggots in the dress. 


So what did we learn Sunday from the woman who won video of the year?

During Gaga's interview with DeGeneres, it was revealed that members of the military had walked the white carpet with the singer to bring attention to the "don't ask, don't tell" policy on homosexuality. You had to go beyond that interview, however, to learn that the folks accompanying Gaga had actually been discharged because of military policy. Hey, she's a pop star, not a communicator. At least she wasn't out on the carpet throwing water balloons.

She told the vegan DeGeneres: "I, as you know, am the most judgment-free human being on the Earth." In case any of us were wondering. Perhaps in case anyone thought judgment had been used in selecting the ensemble.

But what did the meat mean? Unlike Gaga's meat bikini on the cover of Men's Vogue Japan, which she said meant, cleverly, "I'm not a piece of meat," the VMA meat dress carried the message, "if ...
