Lady Gaga - Lady Gaga's Reported Fur Spree Blasted By Peta Activists

Lady Gaga has come under attack from animal rights activists after reportedly spending a fortune on a collection of fur coats while on a recent trip to Russia.

The Poker Face hitmaker is said to have purchased a number of pricey garments from the Helen Yarmak store in Moscow last week (ends16Dec12), including a $210,000 (£131,250) Russian sable coat and a silver fox fur valued at $19,600 (£12,250).

Her shopping spree has landed her in trouble with officials from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) and they have blasted her for splurging on the controversial fashion choices during the festive holidays, as her fellow Americans mourn Friday's (14Dec12) Connecticut elementary school shooting.

A statement released to GossipCop.com reads: "Out of place, out of time, and possibly out of her mind: While the country focuses on rejecting violence and we are deep into the season of peace, giving, and kindness, Gaga is busy decking herself out in a coat made of at least 30 slaughtered animals' skins."

The singer has made an enemy of the Peta organisation this year (12) - campaigners accused Gaga of backtracking on a previous promise never to wear fur after she was photographed wearing what appeared to be a a pink mink coat and a white fox stole in August (12).

However, the superstar divided her critics by defiantly declaring, "You see a carcass, I see a museum piece de resistance" - comments which prompted Peta representatives to brand her "heartless".
