There’s a little more meat on Lady Gaga’s bones these days, and she fed it all into a giant meat grinder on stage in Belgium over the weekend during her Born This Way Ball tour. (The photo above is from the Belgium stunt, but the video is from a similar display in Singapore.)
Gaga’s use of the corset and meat grinder symbolize the treatment of women in society. The stunt pays homage to the 1978 Hustler magazine cover, featuring a woman’s naked lower half poking out of a grinder.
In Belgium, Gaga referenced the Hustler cover, saying, “In 1970, women would no longer be treated like meat, and meat is precisely how we treat them,” reported the Daily Mail.
