Los Angeles, Dec 9 (IANS) Singer Billie Eilish doesn't care what people think of her response to singer Lady Gaga's infamous meat dress.
Gaga wore the elaborate garment, formed from cuts of red meat, to the 2010 Video Music Awards, and it has gone on to become one of the star's most iconic looks, reports aceshowbiz.com.
While attending the 2019 Variety's Hitmakers Brunch with her brother and collaborator Finneas O'Connell (FINNEAS) on Saturday, December 07, the 17-year-old singer was asked to comment on the backlash she faced after criticising the gown in a recent interview - something she says hasn't fazed her.
"I didn't even know about it. I don't even care. Why would I care? I don't know. People try to frame me for being shady and I'm not even, so I don't care. I'm just being honest, I'm not gonna lie!" Eilish said.
The backlash came after the "Bad Guy" hitmaker said she used to watch the music awards show just to check out the women's outfits. When Finneas mentioned Gaga's meat dress, Eilish, who is a devout vegan, responded "yikes".
The moment soon went viral, with GaGa fans slamming Billie with the hashtag #BillieEilishisoverparty.
Panaji, Jan 22 (IANS) With the Goa Chief Minister maintaining that the Lokayukta's report on illegal renewal of 88 mining leases in the coastal state in 2015 is "recommendatory" only, the state Congress on Wednesday said it will approach the CBI for a probe.
Goa Lokayukta P.K. Mishra had on Tuesday indicted former Chief Minister Laxmikant Parsekar, former Mines Secretary P.K. Sain and Mining and Geology Department Director Prasanna Acharya and directed the state government to order a CBI probe into the matter.
"The state government has a lot to hide. Therefore, it is not ordering a CBI probe, which is why we -- as an opposition party -- will file the plaint before the Central Bureau of Investigation based on the Lokayukta's orders," Goa Congress chief Girish Chodankar told reporters here.
"We will also seek a probe into the role of former Chief Minister Manohar Parrikar in the case," he added.
Parsekar, who was the Chief Minister from 2014-17, Sain and Prasanna Acharya were indicted for illegal renewals of mining leases in "haste", after nearly a dozen mining leases were similarly renewed during Parrikar's tenure.
After Chief Minister Pramod Sawant appeared reluctant on the CBI probe order on the ground that "the Goa Lokayukta report is recommendatory", Chodankar said that the Congress would move the CBI due to Sawant's "lacklustre response" on the matter.
