London: Pop star Lady Gaga, who wore a meat dress at the MTV Video Music Awards, has been invited for dinner by People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals` (PETA) President Ingrid Newkirk for an explanation about her controversial dress.

The animal rights group has been critical of Gaga`s fleshy fashion choice and they`re unclear as to the idea behind the dress, which was made from real hides.

"Ingrid did send Lady Gaga a private letter inviting her to a vegan dinner. We know her to be a kind person from her previous anti-fur statements, and we hope that she takes Ms. Newkirk up on the offer," contactmusic.com quoted a spokesperson from PETA as saying.

Gaga had earlier explained that she donned the gown, which came with a "beef clutch" and a headpiece, to make the point that she`s not "a piece of meat".
