Lady Gaga has been slammed by PETA, who claim she is heartless.
The animal rights group - People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals - have criticized the "Poker Face" hitmaker after she was spotted wearing a white fox fur scarf in Cologne, Germany on Wednesday. "The picture speaks for itself. PETA is considering passing the hat so that someone can buy her a heart," said Wendy Wegner, a spokesperson for the organization.
The scarf, which still had the animal's head attached, appeared to be from an Arctic White Fox, which is often electrocuted for its fur. At one time Gaga took a stand against wearing animal skin, stepping out in a jacket made from Kermit the Frog puppets, an ironic statement against the fur trade.

+ David Sims photographed Gisele Bundchen for the latest ESPRIT campaign, which features Mrs. Brady in a cool, tailored suit coupled with tousled sex hair (because that's totally how everyone wears their locks to work).
+ Singer of the infectious "Call Me Maybe" hit, Carly Rae Jepsen, is expanding her empire by modeling for Wet Seal. To celebrate the union, the clothing store is giving shoppers a chance to win a shopping spree with Jepsen, as well as tickets to see her and Justin Bieber in concert.

Lady Gaga has created a fibre optic wig inspired by the Disney Princesses.
The "Judas" singer - who is renowned for her love of eccentric stage outfits - worked on the special creation with her collaborators the Haus of Gaga for six months, and claims the hair piece was inspired by the idea of one of the animated characters at a dance music rave.
"Hi everyone, this is Gaga. So I wanted to show you one of the newest inventions from the Haus of Gaga - this is a hand-made wig by Frederic Aspiras. It's an innovation that myself and Tara and Frederick came up with, with my friend Chris and we've been working on it for six months. Over six months. And we are going to light it up for you so you can see. So the wig is made up of a mixture of real human hair and the finest fibre-optics in existence - they move and feel like real hair. It was handmade. The hair was inspired by taking a Disney Princess and putting her in a rave," she said in a video post on her blog (seen after the jump).
Lady Gaga has switched to a gluten-free diet.
The "Bad Romance" singer has started the next leg of her huge Born This Way Ball tour in Sofia, Bulgaria, and she has opted to go on a new diet to make sure she is in the best shape for the grueling workout.
"Gaga has decided to go on a major body blitz and cut out all gluten and wheat from her diet, which is very hard to do. She has given her people strict instruction to advise staff at venues and restaurants about her new diet because she is taking it very seriously. Her aim is to drop 10lb in a month," a source said.
The 26-year-old singer is thought to be rationing her carbohydrate intake to just two portions a week, and living off a diet mainly consisting of fish, chicken and vegetables. "She allows herself one potato or rice portion a week and has been snacking on Ginnybake cakes from wholefood shops - they are gluten free cookies," the source added.
Behold - the Lady Gaga September Vogue issue!
After bumping shoulders with just about everyone in the fashion industry for several years - above all, with Anna Wintour - the "You and I" singer finally achieved the most coveted cover in the fashion industry. After having covered the fashion bible's March issue of last year, the pop singer has earned her dues.
Photographed by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott, the fuschia/magenta mermaid-style gown looks stunning on the 26 year-old singer; however, her hair seems to be a whole different story...
Jonathan Van Meter pens Gaga's profile (here's to hoping he can explain her newfound friendship with Lindsay Lohan) with additional photos (one after the jump!) by Mert and Marcus. The issue hits newsstands August 21.

Lady Gaga has released details of her debut perfume Fame.
The "Judas" hitmaker took to Twitter to share a picture of the bottle and packaging after it was leaked online.
"Looks like photos of my perfume are being leaked. Oh you fashion editors I could just crinkle my hands at you!" she wrote.
According to the packaging, Fame will smell of the "Tears of belladonna, crushed heart of tiger orchidea with a black veil of incense, pulverized apricot and the combinative essences of saffron and honey drops" and not "blood and semen" as previously claimed. While the perfume is black, it will become invisible once sprayed.
Lady Gaga has landed the prestigious September cover of US Vogue.
The "Marry The Night" singer - who first posed for the publication in March 2011 - will be the fashion bible's cover star for its all important September issue, which is always the most lucrative edition due to its increased advertising.
Gaga - whose real name is Stefani Germanotta - is currently on her Born This Way Ball world tour and so the cover has already been shot by Mert Alas and Marcus Piggott for the magazine which is edited by Anna Wintour. The issue will coincide with the launch of Gaga's first fragrance, which is thought to be called Monster.
The controversial singer signed a deal with Coty Inc. - one of the world's largest beauty companies - in 2010, to create a range of perfumes but reportedly requested that the scent "smell of blood and semen."
Nicola Formichetti is focusing on his own "dream" after years of styling Lady Gaga.
The 34-year-old designer - who is renowned for making the eccentric outfits worn by the "Judas" hitmaker in addition to being the creative director of Mugler - admits he has had to "embrace" a new side of himself now he is in the process of launching his own brand.
"This year I wanted to focus on my own dream. Being a stylist, you always hide behind a brand, but because of Gaga and Mugler, I needed to come out onto the scene. I had to embrace it," he explained.
Discussing the outfits, the Japanese/Italian creative said he wanted to make new technology because materials have largely been the same for such a long time: "Why do you have a zipper when you can have a jacket that's molded to your body? It'll be very digitally oriented and high-tech. We've been working with the same fabrics, the same techniques for hundreds of years. That's all great, but we need something new."
The first items are due out in 2013.
Lady Gaga has shown the world what she looks like with no make-up. The "Born this Way" singer posted a photograph of herself on her Twitter page without her trademark war paint or flamboyant clothes to show her fans her natural look.
The 25-year-old pop superstar was dressed down in a vest but she did add some glamour by wearing a flower in her tied back hair. Accompanying the picture was a Tweet which read, "Have a beautiful day!" Perhaps Gaga was trying to inspire her fans - who she calls her "little monsters" - by showing them they should always be proud of themselves.
Like sister, like... sister? Lady Gaga's younger sibling is to create the costumes for a new off-Broadway show. The Born This Way singer's 19-year-old sibling Natali Germanotta - who is currently studying fashion design at legendary New York fashion school Parsons - is to design the outfits for Simon Says, which is about three strangers who meet at a seance.
Last year, Natali interned at Allison Parris helping backstage at its Fall/Winter 2010 show, where she impressed with her work ethic and style. "Natali has an edgier sense of style like her sister. Initially when she went to the Grammys a few years ago, she wore one of our little lace trapeze dresses, but she styled it up with leather and hardware. She is so nice and so easy to work with. She is such a great girl," Allison said.
Gaga, 25, recently revealed she feels famous because of her style: "I used to save up my money to buy Mugler vintage archive. I used to save up all my money. I had to have it. That's really what fashion is all about for me. I already felt like I had made it before I had made it. All of you made me feel like a star before I was. Thank you for believing in me."
