Gaga risks outrage with rifle bra following school shooting

By on January 14, 2013


LADY  Gaga risked sparking outrage when she wore a bra with  plastic assault  rifles for cups — less than a month after 26 people lost their  lives in a US school shooting.

The superstar singer donned the controversial outfit during the North  American  leg of her Born This Way Ball tour.

And it is likely to upset families of the victims of killer Adam Lanza, who  gunned down 20 children and six adults in the massacre in December.

Lady Gaga is known for her outrageous stage outfits — and among the  wardrobe  choices for her concert in Vancouver, Canada, were a meat dress and  a pink-dyed  fur stole.

Wearing the meat costume, the singer was wheeled on to the stage by two  dancers in a contraption echoing a butcher’s shop as big fake carcasses were  hanging on hooks by her side.

Gaga is sticking with her outrageous costumes despite being criticised by  other stars for wearing fur and raw meat.

Sharon Osbourne berated her for it, saying: “The fact that defenseless  animals  have been killed so you can get your picture in the press is abhorent  to me.”

But despite the backlash against her wardrobe choices, Gaga also debuted the  pink-dyed fur stole at the gig.

A yellow latex dress and a white outfit that looked like a mix between a  space  suit and a beekeeper’s outfit were also among her outlandish stage garb.

And Gaga – real name Stefani Germanotta – is known to be unapologetic about  her outfits. Hitting back at earlier criticism from fans over her wearing of  fur coats, she wrote: “I am choosing not to comment on whether or not  the furs  I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I think it  hypocritical not to  acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb  alligator, ‘kermit’  and not to mention meat, that I have already worn.

“You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance.”
