Lady Gaga's Meat Dress Gets the Museum Treatment

September 7, 2012

Lady Gaga's infamous meat dress is going to be shown at  a national exhibit by the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. The new exhibit is called "Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power," and is about women who are considered pioneers in the music industry. Gaga's dress will be among 250 pieces. 

Since she first wore it at the 2010 MTV Video Music Awards, the meat dress has been dried and preserved. It has even been painted to mimic the original raw meat color. While the dress itself is a historical piece, it will be shown alongside Gaga's political statement while wearing the dress. The singer was protesting the 'don't ask, don't tell' military policy, stating that if people cannot stand up for themselves and be openly gay, then "pretty soon we're going to have as much rights as the meat on our own bones. And, I am not a piece of meat." 

The "Women Who Rock" exhibit will be in Washington, DC until January 6, 2013.
