Pop sensation Lady Gaga has been constantly criticized for her love of wearing fur. She wrote a letter on her site condemning PETA not respecting people’s personal choices to wear fur. Hip-Hop mogul and PETA’s Person of the Year, Russell Simmons has responded by writing a letter to Lady Gaga.
Gaga is known for pushing the envelope with her left-of-center costumes. Some have been made of meat and others have been made of expensive fur. The “You And I” songstress has made it known she loves animals, so she stays away from skinned fur. Despite that, she loves to rock a fur coat when she can.

When you look inside, you see “god” or the connective tissue that bonds you to all living beings and to life itself. The artist knows what the yogis and other leading spiritual beings have said throughout history: that we (all living beings) are ONE. If god were the ocean, we would be cups of god…
