Lady Gaga does a lot of shocking things; but apparently, that’s nothing compared to what one of her fans was willing to do to have the perfect outfit for her concert. Wednesday, NBC’s Oklahoma City affiliate, NewsChannel 4, reported one “little monster” (as Gaga has dubbed her fans) took it to the extreme.

Angelina Barnes, 20, was charged for animal cruelty after reportedly mutilating her family’s 15-year-old tabby cat in order to wear it to a Lady Gaga concert.

The disturbing act was discovered when a family member returned home to find 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 Msgt. Gary Knight told NewsChannel 4. “[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, its liver residing in a makeup case on the counter, while it’s eyes had been disfigured and it’s belly sliced down the center.

Barnes reportedly suffers from depression, but according to NewsChannel 4, those close to her claim 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 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.
