She's known for causing a stir when it comes to her style, but Lady Gaga's latest look and her actions may have caused a fresh outrage.
The 26-year-old singer stepped out in Bulgaria yesterday wearing what appeared to be a real fur coat as she left her hotel carrying a puppy.
Gaga, who was recently slammed by animal charity PETA for wearing a pink fur coat, then took to her Twitter account just to confirm that the garment she was wearing was real.
In a rather sarcastic manner, the pop star wrote: 'For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real, please don't forget to credit the designer HERMES. Thank You! LOVE, gaga.'
Her latest tweet is no doubt going to receive a backlash worldwide, but as she stepped out in Sofia yesterday, Gaga didn't seem to care what anyone thought of her attire.
The quirky star teamed the large grey coat with a pinstriped dress that was slit right up to her hips and almost revealed her underwear.
She completed her look with a pair of patent heels and large dark sunglasses while carrying the pooch and a small designer handbag.
As she left her hotel, the New York-born star waved to her waiting fans and even stopped to sign autographs for them.
Gaga is in Sofia for the start of the European leg of her Born This Way Ball world tour which kicks off tonight at the Armeets Arena.
Her arrival in the capital comes as RadarOnline revealed that PETA has targeted the singer by writing her a personal letter and begging her to no longer wear fur.
'Many of your gay fans, I among them, have long admired what you told Ellen: "I hate fur, and I don't wear fur,"' wrote Dan Mathews, Senior Vice President of PETA.
'What happened? Are your stylists telling you that it's fake, or are you a turncoat?' Mathews asked.
'Many gays are animal advocates because we recognize that the same arrogance and indifference that some have toward animal suffering has at times been directed toward us personally because of our orientation," he went on to say.
'By wearing those dumb furs in a heat wave, you're making yourself a target just like the mindless Kim Kardashian. As we plan our fall campaigns, please tell us whether what you gracefully told Ellen was heartfelt or just a pose.'
