Lady Gaga's infamous 'meat dress' is being displayed to the public for first time right here in Cleveland.
The dress will be part of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum's "Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power" exhibit.
The museum will feature the hand-sewn meat dress Thursday, June 16, 2011 from 9 - 10 a.m.
Lady Gaga wore her unique dress onstage during her acceptance for best video of the year for "Bad Romance" at the MTV Video Music Awards on September 12, 2010. The raw-meat dress was created in collaboration between designer Franc Fernandez and designer Nichola Formichetti and received simultaneous criticism and praise from the media and the public.
Lady Gaga explained her symbolic decision to wear the dress to Ellen Degeneres: "Well, it is certainly no disrespect to anyone that is vegan or vegetarian. As you know, I am the most judgment-free human being on the earth. However, it has many interpretations for me this evening. If we don't stand up for what we believe in and if we don't fight for our rights, 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."
Time magazine later called the dress the best fashion statement of 2010.
