PETA Calls Lady Gaga "Out of Her Mind" for Buying Furs in Russia

Lady Gaga and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals haven't been the best of friends this year; ever since the superstar began openly wearing fur and defending her right to do so , the animal rights organization has been denouncing her in a series of statements.  The latest denunciation comes in response to a fur-buying spree the singer went on in Russia recently.

The New York Post reports that Gaga was spotted last week at a Moscow boutique picking out a green-dyed silver fox coat worth more than $19,000, and a dark brown Barguzin Russian sable that sells for around $210,000.  Insiders say Gaga wore the sable out of the store when she finished her shopping.

In a statement to ABC News Radio, PETA called Gaga "out of place, out of time and possibly out of her mind" for her fashion choice, adding, "While the country focuses on rejecting violence and we are deep into the season of peace, giving, and kindness, Gaga is busy decking herself out in a coat made of at least 30 slaughtered animals' skins."
