POLICE: Fan Mutilates Cat For Lady Gaga

OKLAHOMA CITY, Ok. - Lady Gaga does a lot of shocking things, but apparently they're nothing compared to what one of her fans was willing to do to have the perfect outfit for a Gaga concert.

One "little monster" — as Lady Gaga has dubbed her fans — reportedly took it to the extreme, according to NBC's Oklahoma City affiliate, NewsChannel 4.

Angelina Barnes, 20, was charged this week with animal cruelty after reportedly mutilating her family's 15-year-old tabby cat in order to create her outfit.

The disturbing act was discovered when a family member returned home to find Miss Barnes dressed in a long coat with streaks of the cat's blood on her face.

"There were things done to the house, like covering light switches with duct tape, so she wouldn't be able to turn on the light," Oklahoma City Police Master Sgt. Gary Knight told NewsChannel 4. "[Miss Barnes' relative] became very afraid that the suspect was going to try to do harm to her."

According to the report, investigators found purple hair dye inside a bathroom covered with the cat's blood. The cat had been drowned.

Miss Barnes reportedly suffers from depression, but according to NewsChannel 4, those close to her say she hasn't done anything like this before. Upon discovery, she asked for help and was transported to Griffin Memorial Hospital, where records obtained by NewsChannel 4 show she reportedly threatened a male nurse with a piece of glass.

Lady Gaga is known for her outrageous outfits, designed with every sort of unconventional material, including an ensemble made entirely of meat.

  • New study of Seattle's $15 minimum wage says it costs jobs

    Monday, June 26 2017 12:25 PM EDT2017-06-26 16:25:52 GMT

    SEATTLE, Wash. - A new study of Seattle's $15-an-hour minimum wage law says it costs jobs, contrary to another new study released last week. The Seattle Times reports a University of Washington team found the law boosted pay in low-wage jobs since 2014  but that it also caused a 9 percent reduction in hours worked. For an average low-wage Seattle worker, that's a loss of about $125 per month.
