Lady Gaga has been challenged to embraced vegetarianism and pose in a lettuce dress on her visit to India this weekend. The singer, who famously wore a dress made out of meat at the MTV Video Music Awards in 2010, will be in New Delhi for the country's first Formula 1 Grand Prix race, as well as an invitation-only concert at one of the city's five-star hotels on Sunday.

PETA India has put the pressure on the pop star to promote vegetarianism, and they have offered her a lettuce gown for a photo shoot. The dress, which would be held together by pins and threads, would need to be constructed leaf by leaf on her body. "Someone will be on hand to spray the lettuce with water so that it doesn't wilt," says Sachin Bangera of PETA India.

As of yet, Lady Gaga has not publicly accepted PETA India's challenge.

Song Stories

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
