Lady Gaga's Meat Dress Turned Into Jerky for Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
|Lady Gaga's meat dress is a tasty addition to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.|
The Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland wanted to display Lady Gaga's infamous meat dress for its "Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power" exhibit.
Problem is, how do you store and display raw meat for days, weeks, and months without flies, maggots, and the rotting stench of decay?

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.
Hall of Fame spokesperson Margaret Thresher said the dress took on a "dark, beef-jerky" look while dehydrating, so it was painted to look "fresh" afterward.
Lady Gaga joins Madonna, Taylor Swift, Debbie Harry, and a host of other women who defined rock. Unfortunately, Katy Perry's whipped-cream- spraying bra is not joining the meat dress as dessert.
