Woman kills cat to create costume for Lady Gaga show

Police say a 20-year-old woman who allegedly wanted to spruce up for a Lady Gaga concert created her costume by killing the family cat.

Lady Gaga fans can be crazier than her stage costumes.

Lady Gaga fans can be crazier than her stage costumes.

According to Channel 4 news in Oklahoma City, Angelina K. Barnes will be charged with animal cruelty for disemboweling the poor creature, mutilating its eyes and putting its liver in a makeup box.

Needless to say, she’s currently housed in a mental ward.

A relative reported the crime after arriving home and finding the light switches covered in duct tape and Barnes dressed in a rain coat with red streaks of cat blood on her face. A court affidavit states Barnes created the costume to wear to a Lady Gaga outfit.

I don’t know much about Lady Gaga, but this site has pictures of the singer smeared in what appears to be fake blood.

Local felines may want to climb a tall tree, she’ll be performing in Atlanta April 18.

What the hell is it about cats and insane women? This is worse than those crazy ladies that horde cats and live in squalor.

How about we just lets the freaks on stage dress up and the folks in the audience just listen to the music and watch the show.

People get far more worked over a dead cat that do a murdered or molested child. Sad where the priorities of many lie.

Lady Gaga promotes this type of stuff, she did a blood sacrifice on stage at the MTV Awards a few years ago. She refers to all of her “followers” as monsters. I guess she’s exactly right.

LydiasDad, you have issues. Unless I missed something, the article doesn’t mention anything about a child murder or child molestation. Do us a favor and go away.

Gaga does not promote animal cruelty. She used fake blood in a show, yes, but she is not about hurting anyone or anything.

I am one of the few lost souls that actually dont get Lady Ga Ga..being a child of the 60s..she seems more like some nut who spent
too much time watching Science Fiction movies.Creature Features, or Chiller Theater.
Every time I see Ga Ga she reminds me of I think it was a 70s flick called Rocky Horror Picture Show? I dont give a Damn how many cds she sold or how many awards..shes received..so what? shes just a Rich Nut! Never the less, still a Nut.
anyway. this does not suprise me at all. its obvious the poor thing had Mental Issues LONG before she even heard of Ga Ga. who Herself To ME, dont appear to be playing with a Full deck of cards. I don t think Ga Ga elevator..goes all the way up either..you all may call it artistery..i call it Loony Toons. Shes loony and so are her followers..

its so sad that because of a crazy person people believe that is gaga’s fault… but it makes me think why people don’t blame religions when theres crazy people involved.

Being a child of 60’s, you probably don’t get GaGa, because the LSD and weed fried every last brain cell. Or…you don’t get GaGa because you are a child of 60’s and its not the Birds or the Rolling Stones. Last GaGa concert I went to there weren’t too many sexagenarians in the audience.

I don’t get Lady Gaga because (a) her music is awful and unoriginal and (b) she’s full of herself. It’s like the bumper sticker on my car says: “It’s not that I’m old–your music really does suck.”

Yellow journalism. The story’s headline is very misleading, making the reader believe that Lady Gaga’s costume was made from a dead cat.

With a Name like that sounds more like LSD fried your brain..dont even come this way because I will chew your ass up and spit you into the same Grass you Smoke. and I dont mean weed either. Step off. If you are into GA GA I doubt if they Cut open your head they would even find a brain much less a fried one. I guess I touched a nerve(You mean you can still think and feel? OMG..that is a shock. Sorry to burst your bubble but I never took LSD..only people with your Name sake did that. Jew-Blowboy. now Blow me!

There are freaks everywhere—although I can’t stand “Lady Gaga” (too old to appreciate her talents) I highly doubt that she killed any cats for her costume. Although this is no different from all the freaks in the 60’s and 70’s—”Alice Cooper” choking chickens on stage, etc. etc. Guess some of these commenters were too stoned to remember that though.

I wish someone would do to her what she did to the cat. People who abuse animals should be shot on site…no trial.

Someone should do to her as what she did to the cat, the poor cat had to be in awful pain. I have three cats and I can’t say what I would do if someone did something to hurt them. Animals are created for a reason and placed on this earth and we should protect the innocent, children and animals. Some people these days have no respect for life in general. Sick and Twisted!!!

I am a nanny. I am “stunned” that parents of the children I keep monitor every single thing they do as far as what they are watching on television. They keep the t.v. tuned to and recording nothing but Disney and PBS for the kids. Yet, shockingly enough, the 6 year old girl listens to Gag, Gag, on her moms IPOD and in the car with mommy going here and there. I am in my 40’s and have never gotten the appeal of this crazy woman. She seems to be all show and sounds horrible! Please explain to me, her sick fans, why she seems to be so straight faced and “stoic” all the time. She seems to be in a real “funk” never smiling, laughing, being normal. You people will be embarrassed 20 years from now saying you were a fan and followed this nutjob, believe me, you will!

Let’s see…

We have a transvestite who dresses in weird outfits, sings sexually explicit lyrics, smears fake blood, and simulates satanic rituals on stage.

And you’re surprised when its fans behave in a similar manner?

What a world we’re living in!

all of you who say that its lady gaga’s fault that this mentally ill person did such a horrible act is just plain dumb. THE GIRL WAS MENTALLY ILL. this was going to happen eventually. How about instead of putting the blame on someone who is literally hundreds and hundreds of miles away, we spread information and encourage people who think that they may be sick to get help before something like this happens again.

Not a Ga-ga fan but don’t hate her music. (Sexually explicit? I don’t recall actually hearing any lyrics lol) But what this woman did is no fault of the musician. I remember when some kids killed themselves after Metallica released “Enter Sandman.” There were other situations where it seems like songs or musicians pushed someone over the edge – the point is they were on the edge to begin with and if this hadn’t pushed them over, something else would have. We can’t rubber pad the world for idiots or the mentally insane. This is life in a free country, enter at your own risk.

It’s all Lady Gaga’s fault that insane people everywhere are killing their pets to imitate her. Last year Lady Gaga killed a cow and wore his flesh as a meat dress at an award show. Now this lady kills a cat and wears his blood as makeup and people call her crazy. But they called Lady Gaga a style icon with her meat dress.

this is your typical whackjob. that poor innocent kittie. i hope her family disowns her. she needs to be charged, heavily fined with all monies going towards animal welfare, thrown in jail with a ‘big bertha’ for a cellmate and forgotten about. maybe someone will disembowel her like big bertha.
lowlife cowardly cretin!


April 15th, 2011

Wow you all are sooo misinformed. The meat dress was meant to be a message and was made by designer Franc Fernandez. On why Lady Gaga chose a meat dress, she told Ellen DeGeneres that it was a symbolic choice: “Well, it is certainly no disrespect to anyone that is vegan or vegetarian. As you know, I am the most judgment-free human being on the earth. However, it has many interpretations, but for me this evening … If we don’t stand up for what we believe in and if we don’t fight for our rights, pretty soon we’re going to have as much rights as the meat on our own bones. And I am not a piece of meat.”
It is people like you who judge and bully others and spread lies. Her music is about not judging others and being proud of who you are. I am 30 years old, the mother of 2, and LOVE her music. I don’t judge you, so don’t judge me. And obviously the girl who did that to her cat was mentally ill and needs help.
I’m a little and proud of it!!!

I think this woman was a nut to begin with. I mean, people know the difference between what’s right and what’s wrong. Also, people of sound mind know when something is real and something is fake. I don’t think blaming Lady Gaga for someone’s idiotic\psychotic behavior is the answer here. Already this woman was being treated for depression. Stop blaming the artist here for being different. Start blaming the person that did the act in the first place. And please stop throwing a superstar’s name in a story to make it sell. This was a crazy b**ch in the first place.
