Apparently Lady Gaga has run out of f**ks to give with regards to this fur controversy.
She released the following statement (squarely aimed at PETA and her critics) on her website, according to TMZ. Check it out after the jump.
TMZ quotes Mother Monster as saying:
"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.
You see a carcass, I see a museum pièce de résistance.
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."
