After reading the unprofessional letter the VP of PETA wrote to Lady Gaga, I have to say her response was perfection. Like Gaga, I don’t agree with wearing fur, etc. but when they recently accused her of doing just that because of pictures and videos they had seen, they went too far in the what they said to her. I don’t believe for a second that she wore real fur.

I’ve included both open letters below. In PETA’s, the Senior VP Dan Mathews asks Gaga if she has amnesia because she had in the past said she doesn’t like fur and hates it and they request to know her official stance on the matter. He also says that Gaga is making herself a target like the “mindless Kim Kardashian“. With respect to that, he’s referring to when Kardashian was once flour bombed at a red carpet event for having previously worn fur. When you read his letter, you’ll see how immature it sounds and I feel they should have just contacted Gaga directly if they had questions about what she was wearing, rather than making accusations they can’t backup. Read the back & forth below.


Dear Gaga,

Many of your gay fans, I among them, have long admired what you told Ellen: “I hate fur, and I don’t wear fur.” I included a link because these recent photos of you in fox and rabbit and with a wolf carcass make it appear that you have amnesia. I’m also including this brief video hosted by Tim Gunn showing the violent cruelty that you promote when you wear fur. What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it’s fake, or are you a turncoat? Many gays are animal advocates because we recognize that the same arrogance and indifference that some have toward animal suffering has at times been directed toward us personally because of our orientation. PETA has long participated in Pride events around the country, and just last week, we helped lead protests against Chick-fil-A. But by wearing those dumb furs in a heat wave, you’re making yourself a target just like the mindless Kim Kardashian. As we plan our fall campaigns, please tell us whether what you gracefully told Ellen was heartfelt or just a pose.

We await your reply.


Dan Mathews
Senior Vice President


“I want you to know that I care deeply about your feelings and views, and I will always support your philosophies about life. I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for ANY CAUSE. Particularly one that I respect. ‘Animal Rights.’ I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I would think it hypercritical not to acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, ‘kermit’ and not to mention meat, that I have already worn.

I respect your views, please respect mine. And to campaigners, Save your flour to make bread for the children who are hungry. And Kim Kardashian is fabulous.”

Scoring the cover of Vogue’s September issue is like winning a gold medal in the fashion Olympics. It’s the issue Anna Wintour and her minions work tirelessly on all year long. Just watch the awesome 2009 documentary titled “The September Issue” to see what is entailed to bring the issue together. This year they must’ve worked even harder since the 2012 issue is a total of 946 pages, -the largest ever for the publication. The 26-year-old singer unveiled the cover on her new social network, posting:

“SHH DONT TELL TWITTER/ SEPT ISSUE OF VOGUE MAGAZINE/ Sorry Anna but the underground kids deserve it. bisous!”

Who better to grace the cover of the extra-large issue than larger-than-life pop icon Lady Gaga? This marks the second time she’s landed the cover. The first time occurred in March 2011. With a new album, “ARTPOP“, to promote, Gaga must’ve been elated to score the essential Fall fashion bible for fashionistas everywhere. In the issue, Gaga talks about having sex on beaches, her world tour, launching her perfume, fashion risks and her music.

“I don’t really make records for people to listen to and go, ‘Wow, she’s a genius’. I’d really like you to order a drink, maybe kiss the person you came with that evening or rediscover something about your past that makes you feel even more brave.” – Lady Gaga


Put your paws up… and wave bye bye because Lady Gaga has apparently just fired her long time choreographer, Laurieann Gibson. Apparently, it all came down to one big blowout after the two ladies had it out over the phone. Gibson had apparently heard that Gaga was considering replacing her which obviously pushed her over the edge. If you’ve seen “Dance Scene,” you can see that Gibson can be a bit of a diva – that’s an understatement. Image her finding out her biggest moneymaker was going to be dropping her?

The source that informed MediaOutTake about the fight said to just look at a few of the crazy things Gibson had been quoted as saying recently in the media. “Listen, [Madonna] should be bitter because I [made Lady Gaga in her image] on purpose and you can quote me. I did it on purpose because for all those kids who believe that you can’t, I wanted to let them feel that you can.” That is pretty bold statement to be making about her boss. Clearly there was indeed something going on behind the scenes.

The source also explained that the ladies were yelling at each other during that phone call and it ended with Gibson hanging up on Gaga and telling her she’d be suing.

The two have worked together ever since Gaga signed with Interscope Records. Earlier this year, they struggling with making the “Judas” music video because Gibson didn’t want lightening to strike her with how controversial Gaga wanted it. There was also drama with filming “The Edge Of Glory” and “You and I” as well. I say it was probably the right decision to put an end to this “bad romance”. Gaga has too much on her plate to have to deal with a headache like Laurieann Gibson. Too much power and fame has gone to Gibson’s head and it looks like she has turn into a Lady Gaga “Monster,” but not the good kind. Don’t bite the hand that feeds you!

Yesterday, Lady Gaga’s newest single Judas hit the net and Little Monsters went absolutely bananas. Shortly after the leak went viral, Lady Gaga officially announced that the single would be available for purchase on iTunes and in stores today. Immediately, I assumed that because of the leak, her camp had decided to immediately release the song to capitalize on the sales with the track at the height of its popularity. However, everything seemed a little shady so I wanted to research a little bit more to find out what was really going on. The results made me believe that Gaga, and those that work for her are a well oiled machine and that Gaga knows exactly what she is doing.

Apparently, you like him, you really like him! Literally. Rap superstar Eminem is now officially the King of the world, well at least on Facebook he is. Back in February, when he topped 29 million “likes” he passed Lady Gaga as the top living person to have the most fans. The only person standing in his way for top celebrity, living or dead, was the King of Pop himself.
