Royal Gaga

I will admit it, ever since school started I've been a terrible blogger! I've got a really heavy workload, a lot of my homework assignments are always due the next day or by the end of the week. Oh well, I guess that's what I get for being a journalism major! The professors are trying to keep it real and on a tight deadline. However, that said, I do love my classes and I am learning a ton.
I promise to fully make up my lack of blogging at some point but how about a picture of Lady Gaga at the MTV VMA's for right now? Will that hold you off? She looks stunning in a dress from Alexander McQueen's last collection. Several news outlets are saying its controversial and outlandish however I disagree with these naysayers. I really don't see how this dress is controversial. Lady Gaga always wears outfits that will catch a person off guard but they are meant to be fun and inspiring. Just like Alexander McQueen, Lady Gaga, is often controversial so its only fitting that she wear a gown by him! Also if you notice, the people escorting her down the red carpet are members of the military which have been affected by the "don't ask don't tell" policy. Its great that Lady Gaga uses any opportunity she gets to raise awareness for certain issues, it shows she stands for something and isn't afraid of making her voice herd.

  1. This outfit I actually quite liked despite being not a Gaga fan in the least. What I disagreed with quite a lot was her meat dress. I read an article saying that it was made of 50 pounds of meat. As a vegetarian and someone who believes in animal ethics, I find is completely terrible that animals that died to feed people... didn't even feed people. It's such a waste in world where there's plenty of hunger and cruelty. I just think as someone who's supposed to see herself as so kind and progressive it's a bit hypocritical to wear dead carcasses (also, boring and cliche-- it's been done, by her even).
