Really, Lady Gaga, really? This is how you “make a statement?”
Lady Gaga, known for pushing the sartorial boundaries, is being criticized for wearing a bra with guns on it during the Vancouver stop of her North American tour.
On Friday, the pop star walked onstage wearing a black bra with plastic assault rifles sticking out of each cup. She paired the top with green military-style pants and high-heeled ankle boots.
Critics suggest that this costume was particularly insensitive given that less than one month ago, 26 people were shot to death in a tragic elementary massacre in Newton, Connecticut.
Ladd Everitt, apokesperson for the Coalition to Stop Gun Violence spoke to The Sun newspaper, saynig: “What is the point of this gun porn? It’s no different than a guy who poses with an assault rifle to look tough or send out a political message.
“You’d hope Lady Gaga would have a better sense of judgement. We would ask her to consider the influence she wields over many people and to use that power responsibly.”
