Well, itâ€™s official. Lady Gaga showed her hoo-ha. For art.Â Thatâ€™s right. Gaga got completely naked for a Kickstarter video raising money for the Marina Abramovic Institute.
In case you need a little primer, Marina Abramovic is a performance artist who does things like sit in a chair and stare at museum goers. Sheâ€™s loved dearly by the
pretentious people who know what theyâ€™re talking about when it comes to art. Which obvs includes Miss Gaga herself. We already know she’s a true artiste.
The Kickstarter campaign aims to raise a cool six hundred thou, $230,000 of which has already been raised. The money will go towards building an institute where Marina will be teaching the method Gaga does in the video, which is a series of exercises designed to heighten participants’ awareness of their physical and mental experience in the present moment. Or scare the shit out of the person watching it.
So letâ€™s discuss this video (below), shall we? The only sound you hear during the whole thing is Gaga letting out a long deep hard A sound. As in â€śEy! Iâ€™m walking here!â€ť but without the rest of the phrase.
And while she does that she also does, you know, art. Like lying on a yoga floor in a burn victimâ€™s outfit. Or standing in a river in a Dharma Project jumpsuit with yellow spikes over your eyes. Or cradling a large crystal with her naked body in the fetal position.
First, Gags, thanks SO much for that spikes-over-eyes mask. Because Iâ€™ve been running out of images to have nightmares about? So thatâ€™s a really helpful new one. That will guarantee I wake up screaming with sweat running down my bodyâ€¦ which DUH! Is exactly what you meant to happen! Um hello Iâ€™m making art and I didnâ€™t even know it!
Also, a few questions while I have your attention.
- Where did that huge crystal come from? Was it cold against your lady parts?
- Did you get any ticks while walking naked in a field? Because I fear that for you. Please check for bullseye-shaped bites.
- Did you get that spikey eye coverÂ at Halloween Adventure? Because I am still not settled on my Halloween costume for this year and itâ€™s now between you in this video and the guy who walked across the Grand Canyon in a tightrope. And itâ€™s frankly leaning towards you because I donâ€™t have any flair-bottomed jeans left in my closet.
- You look really good naked. Sorry, more of a comment, less of a question.
Enough of my yammering. Do y’all wanna see some tit…ulating mind-body presence?!! Here she is in the flesh, LADY GAGA!! (Also, you might want to make sure your dog is out of the room. I have a feeling this would upset it.)
