The 'You & I' singer was seen sporting a fur look coat while preparing for her show in Bulgaria.

Lady Gaga has taken a shot at the press over comments about whether or not her new fur coat is real, after being spotted wearing the heavy Hermes overcoat out in Bulgaria yesterday (13th August)

The 'Marry The Night' singer arrived in the country over the weekend ready to launch the European leg of her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour, which has already been to Australia, New Zealand and Asia earlier this year.

Gaga took to her social networking website yesterday to comment on the criticism about her fashion choice, after she was pictured in the grey overcoat along with a pinstripe dress, shades and carrying her pet labradoodle.

"For those press and such who are writing about whether or not my fur is actually real, please don't forget to credit the designer HERMES. Thank YOU! LOVE, gaga," Gaga wrote on the site yesterday, without confirming whether or not the coat was real fur.

The 'Judas' singer features on the cover of the September issue of Vogue US next month, which she leaked out to fans earlier this week with a tweeted apology to editor Anna Wintour.

Gaga is currently hard at work on the follow-up to her 2011 album 'Born This Way', which is expected to be called 'ARTPOP' after she posted a picture of her tattoo of the words as a fan teaser.

Lady Gaga will perform tonight (14th August) at the Armeets Arena in Sofia, Bulgaria.
