Lady Gaga's Meat Dress Arrives at Rock and Roll Hall of Fame

Kevin Winter/Getty Images(CLEVELAND) -- Not long ago, it was announced that one of the attractions at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame's new Women Who Rock exhibit would be Lady Gaga's famed meat dress, but the garment didn't actually arrive at the Hall in Cleveland until Thursday, according to MTV.

The meat dress, which Gaga wore to the MTV Video Music Awards last year, will join her childhood piano, song lyrics and other memorabilia in the exhibit, where it will be on display until February of 2012.

Jim Henke, the chief curator of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, spoke to MTV about the precautions the museum is taking to keep the dress from rotting while it's on display.

"It's going to be in a case, and we are putting some canisters in there to control the humidity," he explained.  He added that they have a canister in the case that "soaks up glutens," as well as "gels to control the environment."  The dress has also been treated with a special chemical solution.

The magazine wrote, "If making fashion statements is your [thing], it's easy to get bored.  Exploding bra?  Flamed out.  Dress made of bubbles?  Please.  Using your hair as a bow?  Not again.  But a dress made of meat -- with shoes, hat and purse to match -- well, that's fresh."

Gaga also made Time's list of People Who Mattered in 2010, along with the likes of Pope Benedict, Steve Jobs, Barack Obama, Sarah Palin, Nancy Pelosi, LeBron James, the cast of Glee, Sandra Bullock, Betty White and Justin Bieber.

Writing about Gaga, Time said, "Her ability to weave fashion, choreography, visual art and a wide variety of pop-based musical styles into one...made her not only a household name but a pop icon."
