Sharon Osbourne Calls Furry Lady Gaga a Bully and a Hypocrite

Written by Michelle Kretzer | January 11, 2013

Lady Gaga, a one-time anti-fur advocate and supposed anti-bullying advocate, seems to flip-flop more than a new pair of Havaianas. Now Sharon Osbourne is calling the singer out on it, saying:

[W]hen I saw you wear a dress made out of raw meat, I was sickened. When I see you wearing fur, and using it as a fashion statement, the fact that defenseless animals have been killed so you can get your picture in the press is abhorrent to me. Shouldn’t you be teaching your ‘little monster’ fans to respect animals and life?

Whether the target is people or animals, no one likes a bully. Maybe that’s why staunch animal advocates have been scooping up so many awards lately.

At the People’s Choice Awards, Glee stars Lea Michele and Chris Colfer claimed Favorite Comedic TV Actress and Actor awards and Jason Mraz was named Favorite Male Artist. Ellen DeGeneres was named Favorite Daytime TV Host, Jared Padalecki’s show Supernatural took Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy TV Show honors, and Mayim Bialik’s The Big Bang Theory was voted Favorite Network TV Comedy. Presenters Olivia Munn and Ian Somerhalder were a huge hit, and host Kaley Cuoco even took a page out of PETA’s book and fought back against dog shaming with a little “people shaming” of her own.

BonesDavid Boreanaz and Emily Deschanel were named TV Guide’s Best Actor and Best Actress. Onscreen, the TV couple focus on investigating deaths, but off-screen David and Emily are all about saving animals’ lives.

Animal advocate extraordinaire Russell Simmons is being honored with the Visionary Award from the Producers Guild of America for his philanthropy and ethical approach to business. And several stars snagged our nominations for best animal-friendly tweets of the week:

 

With all the love for animals and the folks who defend them that’s been going around this week, guess who got named among the least popular people in America? That’d be the Kardashian family, who ranked lower than Congress, root canals, and traffic jams

Unlike some members of the Kardashian clan, Lena Dunham prefers her fur attached to its rightful owner. She happily shared photos of her fluffy new rescued dog, Lamby, on Instagram.

It’s also a boy for Miley Cyrus, who just added new rescued puppy Bean to her family. Meanwhile, her sister Noah Cyrus was celebrating another milestone. For her 13th birthday, Noah asked her friends to donate $13 toward getting horse-drawn carriages off New York City’s streets

Vocal horse advocate Kathy Najimy put her money where her mouth is, competing on Food Network’s Rachael vs. Guy Celebrity Cook-Off to benefit PETA. Of course Kathy, along with competitor and fellow PETA supporter Cornelia Guest, cooked all vegetarian meals.

Perhaps Kathy and Cornelia could swap recipes with Gwyneth Paltrow, who is releasing a new vegetarian-friendly cookbook. Their expertise may even come in handy on the final frontier. One of America’s most respected space entrepreneurs, PayPal co-founder Elon Musk, is making plans to establish the first colony on Mars—but no meat-eaters are allowed. 

That means that even on Mars we could still enjoy the musical stylings of longtime vegetarian Paul McCartney. And it’s a good thing that Elon’s shuttles will likely be made without animal skins, because Macca won’t ride in a vehicle with leather seats.
