Never get on PETA's bad side. The animal rights group has just branded Rihanna and Lady Gaga as "freaks" for their "creepy and callous fashion choices." The Bajan singer was spotted strutting down the streets of London in snakeskin thigh-high boots last Thursday while Mother Monster was called a hypocrite for wearing fur coats after being quite vocal about her distaste for it.

"Rihanna may not have a clue that snakes killed for boots are often nailed to a tree and skinned alive. Of course, they can't go on Oprah to cry about it," said a PETA spokesperson. "Wearing reptile skin is creepy and callous, and it makes her look even more out of touch. She and Lady Gaga seem so desperate to be freaks instead of recognized for their talents that you have to wonder if they realize that they are being laughed at."
