Lady Gaga's bizarre fashion sense has earned her plenty of criticism, but a photo the singer posted to Instagram recently is creating even more controversy than Gaga's own onstage attire:
That's Gaga's French bulldog, Asia, and while the singer clearly posted the pic as a joke, animal right's activist groups like PETA are finding the photo anything but funny.
"Lady Gaga may choose to decorate herself with elaborate and even uncomfortable outfits, but Asia doesn't get to make that choice," said PETA in a statement posted on the organization's website.
"Though it seems clear that Lady Gaga loves Asia, we think Asia - and all dogs - are adorable without the added flair."
Gaga has yet to respond to the criticism, which is not surprising, as we're sure the Mother Monster's publicists are working overtime these days:
The dog drama is, of course, the second scandal that the singer has been involved with in less than a week.
On Thursday, an unreleased version of Gaga's "Do What U Want" video leaked online.
That clip had previously been pulled, as many of its images were deemed disturbing, particularly in the context of two accused sex offenders (R. Kelly and Terry Richardson) being involved in its production.
Needless to say, it's been a tough few days for the Queen of Weird. We personally prefer to see Gaga flashing her ass and getting new tattoos on Instagram than defending herself against charges of insensitivity.
