ga-ga, ooh-la-la!

 

{Favorite LOOKS and why she RULES!}

“We all need an image that screams, ‘I’m an individual!’ I think Jennifer Aniston is beautiful — she’s gorgeous — but I prefer to look interesting rather than pretty.”

FAME MONSTER

“Pop culture is art. It doesn’t make you cool to hate pop culture, so I embraced it and you hear it all over The Fame. But, it’s a sharable fame. I want to invite you all to the party. I want people to feel a part of this lifestyle.”

“I’m not trying to prove to anybody that I’m going to be here for 30 years. You either are or you’re not. You either have passion for it, or you don’t. It’s either important for you to stop, and buy a condo, and have babies, and marry a rich actor, or not do any of that, and continue to make music and art, and die alone. Which is what I’ll probably do”


She made a name for herself on the Lower East Side club scene with the infectious dance-pop party song “Beautiful Dirty Rich,” and wild, theatrical, and often tongue-in-cheek “shock art” performances where GaGa – who designs and makes many of her stage outfits — would strip down to her hand-crafted hot pants and bikini top, light cans of hairspray on fire, and strike a pose as a disco ball lowered from the ceiling to the orchestral sounds of A Clockwork Orange.

1) SHE’S GOT A HELL OF A SET OF PIPES.

2) SHE WRITES HER OWN DAMN MUSIC!

3) SHE’S SUCCESSFULLY MERGED ACCESSIBLE, COMMERCIAL POP MUSIC WITH AVANT-GARDE, EDGY VISUALS: SOMETHING THE MAINSTREAM HASN’T SEEN SINCE… FREDDIE MERCURY OR MADONNA? I MEAN, THE BITCH HUNG HERSELF LIVE ON MTV WHILE SIMULTANEOUSLY TOPPING BILLBOARD CHARTS AND RECEIVING WORLD-WIDE PRAISE.

4) SHE MAKES HER OWN COSTUMES AND HAS AN INCREDIBLE EYE FOR DESIGN AND FASHION. SHE ASSEMBLES SOME OF THE MOST KILLER LOOKS I’VE EVER SEEN!

5) HER PERFORMANCES ARE OVER-THE TOP, OUTRAGEOUS AND WILL KNOCK YOU OFF YOUR SEAT, LEAVING YOU WITH YOUR JAW ON THE FLOOR AND ALWAYS GUESSING.

6) SHE TAKES THE RISKS MOST PERFORMERS COULD ONLY DREAM ABOUT AND UNVEILS INNOVATION.. WHO ACCEPTS AN AWARD WITH THEIR FACE COVERED IN RED LACE AND THANKS GOD AND THE GAYS? GENIUS. SHE KNOWS THE CARD SHE’S PLAYING.

7) SHE IS AN INSPIRATION TO WOMEN! AT 23 YEARS OLD, SHE’S CREATED A DISTINCT GAGA UNIVERSE WITHOUT BEING PORTRAYED AS “JUST ANOTHER PRETTY LITTLE POP STAR”.  WOMEN ARE MARKETED AS SEX OBJECTS MORE OFTEN THAN NOT AND ARE PRESSURED TO LOOK, ACT, BE “PERFECT” (A STANDARD THAT SAYS NOTHING NEW, TAKES NO CHANCES). FOR ME, IT’S SO INSPIRING TO WATCH A LADY WITH SUCH RAW TALENT EXPRESS HERSELF AS CREATIVELY AS SHE DOES. NO ONE IN THE HISTORY OF MUSIC HAS TAKEN THE PERFORMANCE TO THE EXTENT SHE HAS AND REACHED COMMERCIAL SUCCESS ON THIS LEVEL.

I’M A FREE BITCH, BABY.

knud merrild

Knud Merrild (1894-1954) is known as the father of the flux painting technique, as well as an individualist in synthetic cubism and abstract surrealism. A true progressive in art and politics, Merrild was the first artist in California to create assemblages and co-founded the Los Angeles branch of the American Artists Congress in 1936. A Danish émigré to the United States, Merrild contributed greatly to the trajectory of United States Modernism prior to 1950, particularly in Los Angeles.

Though Merrild was not purely a Surrealist or a Post-Surrealist, his work was easy to claim by such groups for it contained biomorphic and sexual images, as well as images of space, clouds, water, stones and nature. In addition, like the Surrealists, he employed non-traditional techniques and used unusual materials. His constructions incorporated housebuilding materials like wire, roofing paper, glass and scrap wood; his collages were made of magazine cutouts, wallpaper and fabric, and his watercolors were unusual with their undercoat of unevenly applied gesso, incised imagery, and top coat of wax. Merrild’s 1930s output consists primarily of paintings, some of which are highly built up with gesso or other material; gesso-wax watercolors; about a dozen constructions and three collages.

In 1942, Merrild developed his technique of painting which he called “flux”, a process by which he alternatively poured, dripped or expelled paint from a dispenser onto a fluid surface. According to Merrild, “A natural consequence of the process is that orthodox tools are of little use, being replaced by gravitation. The paint is expelled at various distances, from zero to several feet above the surface–painting by remote control. The pattern created differs according to the velocity or gravitational force, and to the density or fluidity of the paint. The impact of the expelled paint with the fluid surface creates fissions or explosive eruptions, more or less violent, and the painting is set in motion in four dimensions. Mutations follow, lasting from seconds to several hours. When in motion, incessant mutations of color and form ensue, until arrested in a metaphor of its own Flux. Left alone, it becomes an automatic creation by natural law, a kinetic painting of the abstract.”
