Totally Gaga! - Mint Sauce, Mustard or Horseradish?

Lady Gaga wearing a controversial meat dress at a music awards event held in Los Angeles on Sunday night.

The wacky pop diva managed to offend vegetarians, animal rights' campaigners and food safety obsessives.

Lady Gaga's push for world domination is almost complete!
She shocked and amused the fashion world on Sunday night, when she wore an outfit apparently made totally out of cuts of raw meat, to the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) in Los Angeles.

The 24-year-old global pop phenomenon picked up a total of eight gongs on the night, most for her song 'Bad Romance'. The video for 'Bad Romance' has been watched nearly 278 million times to date on ' YouTube ' and music video site ' Vevo.'

The meat dress was just one of three outrageous costumes dreamed up for the evening by Gaga, who has made a name as much for her crazy fashions as for her music.

She arrived in a spectacular outfit by the late Alexander McQueen: a Victorian-inspired gown and a Mohawk feather headdress atop a long white wig, with monstrous stilettos that made her look like she was on stilts.

Later, she changed into a black dress so overflowing she needed help to get onstage.

Gaga was teary-eyed during her victories, and after the show, she told Ellen DeGeneres:
"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."

Earlier this month, Gaga wore a meat bikini (right) for the cover of Vogue Hommes Japan.

Rivals such as Katy Perry and Ke$ha did try to compete for the limelight.
Perry was dolled up liked a 40s pin-up girl and had her nails decorated with portraits of her fiancé Russell Brand, while Ke$ha copied the Gaga book by turning up in a dress made out of black bin-liners.

The only questions remaining after the VMAs are how can the girl born Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta top her latest performances, and how far will she go?

Those who have worked with her say she is fiercely intelligent and very driven, with an instinctive gift for creating hook-laden pop songs.
Her rise, after being spotted by Interscope music executive Vincent Herbert, has been spectacular, and she was recently named by Time magazine as one of the 100 Most Influential People in the World.

Lady Gaga could outdo even the apparently immortal Madonna and become the biggest pop star in history.
