Lady Gaga's controversial meat dress may not have been good enough to eat - but it's tasty enough for the Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.
The infamous costume will go on display in Cleveland, Ohio, as part of an exhibition called Women Who Rock: Vision, Passion, Power next February.
Last September, the Bad Romance singer turned up to the MTV Music Awards wearing an outfit made entirely of real animal cuts.
The 25-year-old, who won eight gongs that night, sparked outrage when she wore her dress, boots, hat and purse made of raw meat.
Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, insisted the bizarre wardrobe choice was to battle for civil rights.
She said: 'If we don't stand up for what we believe in and fight for our rights pretty soon, we're going to have as much rights as the meat on our bones. And I am not a piece of meat.'
She also claimed it tied in with a protest against the US military's Don't Ask, Don't Tell policy, which prevents homosexual men admitting their sexuality.
The layers of Argentinian beef, which were fresh when the gown was first worn, have been specially cured before being unveiled again.
In a process which took several months, the dress and matching boots were kept in a meat locker, dipped in a vat of chemicals and then dried out by taxidermists in California before being flown to their new home.
Museum spokeswoman Margaret Thresher said the dress has a "dark, beef-jerky" look after dehydrating.
The garment also needed repainting afterwards to restore the fresh look.
Last night, the global superstar wisely opted to clothe herself in material instead of something from the supermarket fridge.
However, never one to avoid controversy, the Grammy-winner still managed to step out in little more than her underwear.
Gaga left little to the imagination as she paraded around in just a bra, knickers and a pair of black tights.
She teamed the barely-there outfit with studded knee-high boots and a pair of oversized sunglasses - despite it being pitch black outside.
Gaga, who was in Paris performing at a private gig, waved to fans from her hotel balcony as she threw flower petals.
