Morrissey - Morrissey Supports Gaga's Meat Dress

Vegetarian singer Morrissey has backed Lady Gaga's 2010 Mtv Video Music Awards meat dress stunt, insisting it's fine to wear animal flesh as a "social and political statement".
The former The Smiths frontman has waged war on the meat industry throughout his 28-year career, and in recent years has stepped up his campaign to outlaw cooked flesh at his shows, banning burgers and sausages from venues on the Scottish leg of his current U.K. tour.
But he has surprised fans by revealing he supports Gaga's decision to don a meat dress at the awards show.
He tells U.K. newspaper The Daily Telegraph, "The meat dress was first done by (British artist) Linder Sterling... in 1982, and she did it as a protest at men seeing female flesh as meat. I don't know whether that came across with Lady Gaga.
"I think people didn't question it too deeply - they simply saw it as 'today's loony idea'. But I like to assume that Gaga had the same notion. If it's a social and political statement, it's acceptable. If it isn't a social and political statement, I don't really see the point."
The dress was recently donated to the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in Ohio, where it will be displayed to fans.
