Lady GaGa has defended her decision to wear fur.

The singer has stepped out in two animal style ensembles recently while carrying a dog but refuses to get into details about why she feels it's OK to don an animal's exterior for fashion.

She explained: ''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.''

The star insisted that while others see her clothing as a dead animal she sees it as expressing herself through art.

She continued: ''You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance.''

In a post on her website she told her fans that she respected their views and even supported animal rights.

However she attacked Peta's campaign against fur.

She wrote: ''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.''

Referring to a recent incident in which Kim Kardashian had flour thrown on her during red carpet interviews, she showed support for the reality TV star.

She added: ''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.''
