Lady Gaga Asked to Wear Lettuce Dress

Lady Gaga Asked to Wear Lettuce Dress

PETA India wants the pop star to go veggie for the weekend.

Lady Gaga has many alter egos. From her masculine side known as Jo Calderone to her fashion, it seems she would go to many lengths to make a statement.


According to Reuters, this is exactly what the animal rights organization PETA is hoping for. While visiting India this weekend for the country's first Formula 1 Grand Prixe race, Gaga’s publicist received a letter from the group asking the Born This Way singer to practice vegetarianism for the weekend and don a lettuce dress for a photo shoot.


Sachin Bangera of PETA India tells Reuters, "If she agrees, we'll make her a dress entirely of lettuce and held together by pins and threads. It will be a full length gown, and we'll make sure it looks sexy." As for the wilting factor, Bangera says, "Someone will be on hand to spray the lettuce with water."


In Indian culture, the cow is a sacred animal; in 2010, Mama Monster famously wore a real meat dress to the MTV Awards.


The 25-year-old is scheduled to perform today in New Delhi after the race. There's still no word yet on whether she will rock the salad-based dress or not.
