Gaga got meaty recently with renowned photographer Terry Richardson for the September cover of Vogue Hommes Japan.

Although always one to cause controversy, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) think that she has pushed the boundaries a little bit too far this time saying in a statement that “no matter how beautifully it is presented, flesh from a tortured animal is flesh from a tortured animal. Meat represents bloody violence and suffering, so if that’s the look they were going for — they achieved it.”

Gaga, 24, is yet to comment on the photoshoot, however we get the feeling this issue is going to be a best seller.

    i really don’t like her, she’s not original, she’s an exact copy of madonna and i really don’t like the cover, people wearing dead animals and then, standing their trying to look beautiful while an animal has suffered, bad stuff :)

    You know what, if some pretentious photographer is going to ‘push the limits’ and do an ‘edgy’ shot like that, he and Miss gaga can have the courage to go to a slaughter house, surround themselves in misery, horror and death, and then see how ‘artistic’ they’re feeling.

    what @georginas comment? I feel as though u didnt complete ur statement, shit just didnt make sense. Art is ‘freedom of expression’. Obviously they were goin for the shock value appeal, which is very terry richardson. And even though gaga isnt that original, compared to all the other mainstream ‘artists or musicians’ id say shes pretty unique

    Terry Richardson is a legend. Whether or not I’m a fan of this picture, I’d definitely recommend the rest of his controversial pictures!!

    I think everyone who finds this image “animal torture” and disgusting has definately missed the point. It’s not like she personally went to the slaughter house, picked out an animal and threw it in the machines. The point of this photoshoot is shock value, something people love Terry Richardson for. And this is his expression of art.
