As the PETA activists among us may know, Lady Gaga recently got into trouble with anti-fur enthusiasts as well as fake-Ke$ha for wearing fur around town. Town, of course, being a euphemism for the world.
While I’m not super into fur, I’m also super not into picking-and-choosing when it comes to critiquing what Lady Gaga wears. Who’s to say that her wearing a fur coat is anymore offensive than her prancing about in stuffed Kermits. Just think about how the puppet community must feel seeing that.
With that said, I’m frightened for her new dog Fozzi. The poodle hybrid is her new favorite accessory and thanks to Buzzfeed you can see Gaga sporting him all over the place. But what happens when the weather grows colder and the dog grows needier — and Lady Gaga finds herself craving a coat that no else owns. Something unique, something quirky, something poodle-y.
I’m not saying she’s going to skin Fozzi for a coat. But I’m also not saying she won’t.
All I’ll go on the record saying is that it might be time to get Sarah McLaughlin involved. She can totally pretend that she wants to do a melancholy duet with Gaga for a commercial that will haunts our dreams — and then kidnap Fozzi and bring her to safety.
The last thing we need is puppy dog coats coming into fashion. At least not this fall. Not when I just purchased a very expensive sloth-hair coat.
