Have no fears, Little Monsters. Lady Gaga's dress from the MTV Video Music Awards earlier this month will be preserved. Hopefully in some sort of meat locker.

Symbolically, Gaga wanted to illustrate that humans can be treated like pieces of meat, as she feels gays are thanks to laws like the Don't Ask Don't Tell policy.

But forget the controversy. One of the problems with a dress of meat is logistical. What do you do with it after? It's not like you can eat that piece ... or can you?

Meaty Dress

PETA? Rolling in its collective grave.

“The dress will now go through a drying process where it becomes a sort of ‘jerky,’” the designer of Lady Gaga's meat dress, Franc Fernandez, tells E! Online.

It will be "archived for posterity," he says, adding that it took three days and 50 pounds of meat to design the dress, which he refrigerated between sessions.

“The meat dries out, rather than rotting. But it shouldn’t be worn again. There’s not going to be more. This was made for a specific purpose. It is what it is.”

Indeed. And that thing looks totally ...

This week, the U.S. Senate is taking about repealing the military's controversial "Don't Ask, Don't Tell" policy, which prohibits gays from openly serving.

Senate Democrats have made repealing the discriminatory policy a condition of the $726 billion spending bill the play to pass for the coming fiscal year.

It's a bold move for a law already under siege. A federal judge in California ruled it unconstitutional and polls are showing increasing support for repeal.

Among the more vocal supporters? Lady Gaga. In a recent YouTube video, the pro-gay rights music star lobbied for the Senate to overturn the law:

Wow. You don't see Lady Gaga bottled up too often. Get it?!?!

Celebrity fragrances are nothing new. Paris Hilton and other stars have made a fortune by slapping their name on them. But Lady Gaga entering the mix?

Something about that seems off to us. Maybe because she's got actual singing talent? Or because we're afraid her signature scent will be sirloin steak?

In any case, Coty Inc. signed her to a "multi-product deal" and the first scent in her collection is due to hit shelves in Spring 2012. Brilliance takes time.

Stephen Mormoris, senior VP of global marketing, called The Fame singer "a fascinating cultural force" who will make a splash in the fragrance market.

What do you think her fragrance will smell like? Fireworks? Frog legs? Lobsters? The inside of a jail cell? Used fishnets? Various cuts of meat? Discuss!

When most of us catch a flight at LAX, we don't show up in our finest weave, panties, fishnets, "Solid Gold" dancer jacket, handcuffs, 12-inch heels and little else.

Then again, Miss Lady Gaga is not most of us. When you're a pop star, style icon and rumored hermaphrodite, you do what you want - and always make a statement.

Hey, at least it's not a meat dress ...

Lady Gaga probably has more leg room in First Class at least.

"I never thought I'd be asking Cher to hold my meat purse." - Lady Gaga

Even by Lady Gaga standards, the meat dress she wore at the MTV VMAs was a bit of a fashion risk. She looked pretty tasty, though ... in more ways than one.

At first glance, she looked fairly unassuming when she accepted the award for Video of the Year (one of eight she won on the night). But when you look closely ...

Lady Gaga Meat Dress

You can expect Lady Gaga will be grilled over this fashion choice.

The "Bad Romance" singer explained the outrageous, juicy getup as such:

“Well, it is certainly no disrespect to anyone that is vegan or vegetarian, because as you know, I am the most judgment-free human being on the earth."

"However, it has many interpretations. For me this evening, if we don’t stand up for what we believe in and fight for our rights pretty soon, we’re going to have as much rights as the meat on our bones. And, I am not a piece of meat.”

There you have it. Tell us, though, did she cross the line with this one? Or is it among her best ever? What do you think of Lady Gaga's meat dress?

This is an unusual story: a woman named Yana Morgana claims that Lady Gaga is only famous due to her late daughter, Lina Morgana.

That 19-year old committed suicide a couple years ago, but not before she was introduced to the singer (then Stefani Germanotta) in 2007. Yana tells The New York Post that it was Lina's dark, edgy style that inspired Germanotta to become Lady Gaga.

Morgana is now seeking the rights to release the songs her daughter recorded with Gaga.

Ga Ga Rah-Ah-Ah-AH

Did Lina Morgana inspire the Lady Gaga we know today?

"I'm doing this because I want to keep her spirit alive," Yana told the newspaper. "Lady Gaga is holding Lina's soul, and I want her soul to be free."

Added the grieving mother: "Every other word she says is from Lina. She talks about having a dark and tragic life, but she had everything she wanted in the world. She went to [the same] high school as Nicky Hilton, her parents were rich. But Lina did have a tough life, and she often talked about her tragic life."

Only Lady GaGa would be able to pose as a lingerie-clad Statue of Liberty and NOT have this be her most ridiculous magazine cover of the month.

Indeed, the eccentric artist is featured in the latest issue of Vogue Japan, wearing nothing at all... except for slabs of meat. We actually prefer this look to the ridiculous outfit Gaga strolled around in last month. You might say this singer has raised the STEAKS in the fashion world.

Get it?!?

Do you find this pose shocking, sexy... or appetizing?

Lady Gaga has become an American icon herself in these modern times. Here our girl embodies one of our enduring symbols, the Statue of Liberty, as only she can.

In lacy black lingerie.

Rihanna in Vogue

Wearing her "Poker Face" and little else, the NYC native channels the Big Apple's best known Lady for the "New York Issue" of fashion magazine V. Check it out:

Lady Gaga puts a new spin on the quintessential New York symbol.

With designer Marc Jacobs close by, the 24-year-old's long, blonde hair is sculpted into Lady Liberty's famous crown as she clutches a burning paper torch in the latest of many memorable Lady Gaga pictures from recent years.

V editor Stephen Gan says: "Just as the Statue of Liberty was France's gift to America, Gaga is, to us, New York's greatest gift to pop culture and fashion... she has become a bonafide genius and we can safely declare her our muse."

Gaga as Lady Liberty: What do you think?
