This is just bonkers.
Remember Gaga's famed dress made of quality Argentine beef? It's spent the past few months drying and being preserved by chemicals in order to be showcased in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame:
"According to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, the dress and shoes worn by Gaga at the 2010 Video Music Awards were cured and dried. The result? A jerky outfit, fit for display (or to eat on a hiking trip).
"The outfit, made of Argentine beef, was kept in a meat locker, placed in a vat of chemicals, and dried by a team of taxidermists over a period of several months."
It took on a dark brown jerky appearance, evidently, so they painted it to look fresh and meatlike:
I'm not sure why, but it is almost more gross than it was at the actual award show Gaga wore it to.
