Lady Gaga Apologises To Fans For Promoting Fur

Lady Gaga has made some controversial moves in the career but last week she upset and angered her fans when she stepped out draped in what appeared to be a pink mink coat in New York.

Following the backlash the singer has apologised to her fans over the furore about her apparent decision to wear fur.

Along with fans, People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (Peta) vice president Dan Matthews also launched an attack on Gaga for breaking a promise she made last year to chat show host Ellen DeGeneres not to wear fur.

Writing on her website, she said earlier this week: "For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real, please don't forget to credit the designer Hermes. Thank you!"

After taking a few days to collect her thoughts it seems the 'Born This Way' singer had a change of heart and returned to the website to release a statement: "To the fans. I want you to know that I care deeply about your feelings and views, and I will always support your philosophies about life...

"I do not however support violent, abusive, and childish campaigns for any cause. Particularly one that I respect. Animal Rights.

Gaga steps out in 'fur' coat in New York (Wenn)

"I am choosing not to comment on whether or not the furs I purchase are faux fur-pile or real because I would think it hypercritical (hypocritical) not to acknowledge the python, ostrich, cow hide, leather, lamb, alligator, 'kermit' and not to mention meat, that I have already worn.

"This should already put me in a category as one who appreciates and adores the beauty of animals in fashion, but am not a strict vegan. I have truly always stayed away from skinned fur, especially (sic) I have never been able to afford a nice one, but this does not mean my morals are rigid and that I won't bend at the sight of an absolute art piece of a coat.

"I have no chains about this. You see a carcass, I see a museum piece de resistance. But I am truly sorry to fans who are upset by this, it's a fair and applaudable feeling about the health and safety of animals. I respect your views, please respect mine."
