Lady Gaga made her dog Asia wear a ruffled pink bathrobe: cruel or fine?


Here are some new photos of Lady Gaga and her French bulldog Asia in Stockholm, Sweden today. Gaga did like ten costume changes already for the day, just for the paparazzi. I also feel sorry for poor Asia – this puppy does have a F—k My Life Face if I’ve ever seen one. And I hate Gaga a little bit for making Asia wear a pink, ruffled bathrobe. That’s just cruel!!

The worst part about these photos? Two things. One, Gaga’s wig game has gotten really, really busted, right? I think she’s sleeping in that wig. Two, I swear I had to really examine these photos just to make sure that Gaga wasn’t going commando underneath her skirt. UGH. She’s not, by the way. She’s wearing nude panties underneath.

Surprisingly enough though, Gaga is doing a bit better these days. Better career-wise, that is. Her duet album with Tony Bennett is currently #1 on the Billboard charts and it sold 131,000 copies in one week. I’m giving most of the credit to Tony Bennett, who is a national treasure. Still, Gaga’s ArtPop album sold 258,000 copies in its first week, so what do I know?

Oh, and there are rumors that Gaga and Taylor Kinney got secretly married. He wore a ring on that finger, so who knows?

    I really don’t understand people who dress their pets up in cute outfits, unless the outfit has some sort of functionality, like keeps the dog warm or dry, etc.

    I don’t really think it’s cruel per se, just a bit silly.

    Also, I heard Gaga’s hot-ass boyfriend was seen with a wedding band on his finger. This enrages me. He’s SO. DAMN. HOT.
    I don’t get it…

    That dog is suffering mortification. If ever a face told a tale (tail), his face says why, WHY?

    The wig says drunk Elizabeth Taylor, hawking stinky perfume, circa 1980.

    The album is probably good in spite of everything said above.

    I’m not a fan of animal clothing, it makes them seem like accessories.

    • Kitten says:

      Yes ITA 100% They are animals, not dolls.

      • Annie says:

        I agree it’s a bit silly but I can never understand why some people get SO worked up about putting clothes on a dog. Dogs and cats do not experience embarrassment like humans do (especially not dogs if you know what I mean, dogs are shameless!) so it is not harming the animal in that way. Clothes carry no social meaning to a dog because they communicate via other means like scent. It only really bothers other humans, not the dog.

      • Kiddo says:

        I beg to differ. Have you ever watched a cat F* up an acrobatic feat? Even when not injured, they start licking themselves for shame/embarrassment of failure.

        I challenge you to come over and try to put clothes on my one cat. You would rue the day.

      • blue marie says:

        Ha, so true. My kitten just tried to jump from the couch to the chair and faceplated on the carpet. I picked him up and he put his paw over his face. He tried again and made it, now he’s licking his paws like a champ.

        For some people pets are like their children, and when you dress your kid up in a so-cute-you-could-die outfut you’re not treating your kid like an accessory/doll. Ps I have 6month old b/g twins and it’s my partner (and other family members) who likes buying them outfits/costumes.

      • Kitten says:

        As I said above, I don’t think it’s cruel, just kind of silly.
        My two cats are like my children, which is why I put their needs first, not my own desire for amusement.

        Again, I’m not trying to vilify people who dress up their pets because ultimately it’s harmless— but to me, if it doesn’t benefit my pet, I’m not doing it.

      • blue marie says:

        Agree completely Kitten. I just now noticed you dropped the OG..

      • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

        Agree. It’s silly to dress them like dolls.

        I know pets don’t feel embarrassment the way humans do, but I think they know something is different. Our dog had to wear a life preserver when we were sailing with her, and I swear she was embarrassed and tried to pull it off with her feet and scrape it off on a fence until she saw two other dogs with them on. Then she was all, yeah, I have one, too, I’m cool.

      • blue marie says:

        Aww, that’s cute GoodNames..

        I have an American Staffordshire Terrier (similar to pitbull) and she shivers like a Chihuahua if the temperature drops below seventy degrees. Since she has to wear something to keep warm, I prefer her to wear pink – in part because it makes her look less intimidating to those afraid of the breed. She loves her hoody sweatshirts because she knows they keep her warm. In fact, I used to live in Northern Illinois, so she used to wear a coat over her sweater to go outside in the snow. And it sounds crazy, but I would crank the heat down to 55 at night in the winter, and she actually wore flannel PJs. I swear to God they were adorable and she loved them. She slept with my cousin who would lay Maya down on her back (like changing a baby’s diaper) and put her PJs on every night.

        I don’t like dressing animals purely for fashion. French bulldogs are feisty little guys, and I would imagine they would be harder to dress than your average lapdog. And I will add that I despise people who dye their white dogs to match their clothes – hate them.

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I completely agree. Its kind of selfish, dogs don’t care what they look like as long as they are dry, etc.

    • Rae says:

      I never really thought of it that way, but I clearly see your point. In some cases though (toy breeds, designer breeds) it is necessary to keep a dog clothed to keep them warm. Nothing wrong with a little jumper.

      When my dog was a puppy, I bought him a coat for our walks in the winter. His hair is so short and thin, I was sure he was getting cold. He promptly rolled in dog shit to show me the error of my ways. He is still however required to dress up one day a year for my (and the neighbor kids’) entertainment… plus that one time he refused to get off my pillow, so I dressed him up in every Halloween costume I’ve accumulated over the years and took pictures.

    • Anne tommy says:

      Agree with blue marie. A coat on a short coated dog when it’s cold. And a bandana round the collar can be cute. That’s it. Kids copy the teacup in my handbag – purse in USA- stuff. I was upset a few years ago when on a boiling hot day a little girl of about 9 was proudly showing off her little kitty in her shoulder bag, the poor thing had heat stoke, I advised her to put in in a cool place and try and get it to drink water but I think it was too late. I am not saying the Paris hiltons are directly to blame but animals should not be treated like toys.

    OT Taterskank here
    Ha! I love the wig. It reminds me of Creepshow (It was on last night!) and Adrienne Barbeau. “Tell it to call you Billie!”

  5. Delta Juliet says:

    Why isn’t “stupid” included as a choice? Because that’s what I’m going with.

  6. Hello Catty says:

    All of a sudden, she’s turned into
    Barbara Cartland.

  7. joy says:

    I have a tiny dog that shivers if it’s under 70 degrees so he wears shirts and sweaters a lot. But I don’t think this moron should be allowed to own anything living.

    • Kitten says:

      Yes dogs sometimes have to wear sweaters, coats or those sock things to protect their feet. Also, some cats that go outside or get cold easily (like Sphinx) will wear sweaters. That, I understand completely.

    • sputnik says:

      i have a couple of winter coats and jumpers for my dog cos he can’t handle the cold. obviously if a dog hates wearing clothes then you shouldn’t put them on. fortunately my dog thinks he’s hot sh*t when he’s wearing his hoody.

  8. Jh says:

    In NYC, you constantly see little dogs in hoodies and shoes and whatever else you can think of. It’s not cruel. Duh. Obviously these people love their pets. Is it obnoxious? Totally. But it is just humans doting on their pets.

  9. Kas says:

    He is to dogs what North West is to babies.

  10. wow says:

    I want that dog! He is absolutely adorable, but yeah he is not feeling that robe! I try to put a sweater or coat on my dog to keep him warm while he plays outside and he just gives me “the look”.

  11. FingerBinger says:

    Gaga’s wig looks crooked. Or is it on backwards?

  12. PunkyMomma says:

    That poor little doggie is suffering from shame! And the wig is straight from the Eva Gabor collection . . .

  13. Pri says:

    the dog looks soo uncomfortable and I feel pained for him/her. I hate this woman now that I realise that she’s a complete idiot!
    Its one thing if she wants to be a freak show but leave poor animals out of your shit!

    Can’t help it – torturing animals like this is disgusting. I have very strong feelings about this and can go on for hours but…… going to be in vain. That woman is an idiot!

    • Jh says:

      Torture? That’s insane. What Michael Vik participated in was torture (you know. Electrocutions? Beatings? Hangings? That was torture). Jesus people. She’s an idiot, but that dog is happy and fine.

  14. OTHER RENEE says:

    It is totally ok for her to dress up her dog as long as the dog doesn’t mind. Believe me, dogs let you know immediately if they hate wearing clothing. This adorable and obviously cherished dog obviously doesn’t mind.

  15. black orchid, says:

    Isn’t that look FK .TWIgs ‘s ,that nose ring ,red lip , beehive combo ,Anyways Gaga ,it was lovely not having u around!!!

  16. Felice says:

    She is very unapologetic about wearing fur so are we really that surprised? Asia seems to have been the real star of the ARTPOP era. I still love her but I know a lot of other Little Monsters want her to “stop pretending to like jazz with that corpse.” I really do root for her and I know that I’m weird because of that lol.

  17. Koala says:

    Something needs to be said about that septum ring. I’m all for pierced septums, personally- I have mine done and I absolutely love it. But giant pearls hanging out of your nose? That is absolutely ridiculous and looks absurd. I like subtle, pretty little jewelry that just decorates the face. That thing is obscene. You did it, Gaga– we’re looking at you.

  18. Suzanne says:

    WTF is wrong with this woman? Is she going through a “Try to look like Liz Taylor” phase now?
    Holy crap….a classic case of someone who is DESPERATE for attention. Talent is one thing…needing constant attention is another.

  19. Cupcake says:

    Meh. I don’t care if someone dressed up their dog. At least she paying attention to her pet which is more than I can say for some celebrities.

  20. Jayna says:

    I love Asia. More photos of Asia, less of Gaga. Where do I sign the petition?

  21. Alexa says:

    I would love to have a “Be Lady Gaga for a Day” day (at least what I like to IMAGINE her life is like). I’m totally into having all the extreme clothing and accoutrements to put on (with lots of help from professional hair, makeup, and style people). It seems like it’d be fun for a couple of days.

  22. moo says:

    the pearl buggers………… the half assed wig……………. that poor dog!!!
    she is over and should just go away

  23. Ice Queen says:

    I think she looks stupid. As always. I feel sorry for the dog.

  24. Me says:

    how is dressing your dog up in cute clothes cruel? beating your animal, starving it is cruel dressing it up is not.

  25. Rubber Ducky says:

    The wig looks drunk.

  26. Dizzybenny says:

    Is that what they call a cocaine nose job?

  27. LaurieH says:

    I am far less concerned about the dog bathrobe and more concerned with the pearl boogers coming out of her nose.

  28. Cirque28 says:

    I didn’t get my dog so I could make him miserable.*

    Yes, some dogs like clothes and some breeds NEED clothes. But if you have a dog who absolutely hates wearing clothes and you make him or her wear them anyway– why??

    *(Except on Halloween, when I put my dog in his costume for 5 minutes, snap a couple photos of him with a long-suffering expression on his face, and then it’s back to… free dog!)

  29. TOPgirl says:

    Lady Gaga is realllly losing her touch. She doesn’t look happy with herself anymore. Something is really wrong with her now.
