Poker Face singer Lady Gaga has caused worldwide outrage by posing in a bikini made entirely of red mea for the cover of Vogue, reports The Daily Mail, London.

The newspaper writes: “Even by her standards, it is a little raw.

“Just when you thought it was impossible to be any more outrageous, Lady GaGa has gone further than ever with her latest shocking outfit.

Lady Gaga's shoot has prompted  a furious response from animal rights campaigners.

On the cover of Japanese Men's Vogue she poses with one hand on her hip and another on her head with what appears to be a steak under it.



The ‘bikini' is strung together from other cuts of red meat as bright as her red lipstick that are draped strategically over her naked body.

‘Lady Gaga's job is to do outlandish things, and this certainly qualifies as outlandish because meat is something you want to avoid putting on or in your body,' said Ingrid Newkirk, president of animal rights campaign group PETA.

‘No matter how beautifully it is presented, flesh from a tortured animal is flesh from a tortured animal.

‘Meat represents bloody violence and suffering, so if that's the look they were going for—they achieved it.'

Gaga's habit of wearing bizarre outfits is perhaps more legendary than her chart success.



From the excessively high shoulder pads to the warped wedding dresses and an entire outfit made of Kermit the Frog toys, she is never afraid to defy convention or, as appears here, good taste.

Gaga added a further layer of mystique to her personality in the interview by apparently posing for photographs inside as a man.

In the accompanying interview Jo Calderone, who appears to be her new alter-ego, claims to be a friend and occasional lover to the star, 24, even if the pictures very much look like Gaga herself.

Italian mechanic ‘Jo' tells of how ‘beautiful, funny and interesting' Gaga is and claims they met on a photo shoot.

‘I was a little nervous for Nick Knight (the photographer) to start shooting,' Jo says.

‘She said, "Don't be baby, you were born this way". I took her out after. The rest is private.'

Originally from Sicily, Jo says he wants to own his own car shop and ‘have a bunch of my own "muscle' cars"' or take some pictures if he can afford it.

Adding fuel to the debate was a Twitter feed started by a Jo Calderone the day the magazine came out.

The latest post reads: ‘I am a man. I am a human being. I am me. And I was Born This Way.'

Gaga observers have also noted that  'Jo'  is an abbreviation of her middle name, Joanna.

The male alter-ego, if indeed it is her, would be a new twist even by her standards.

A new book recently claimed that Gaga was starving herself to fit into her stage outfits.

Her former tour manager David Ciemny said she collapsed six times last year due to her her extreme dieting.
