I thought this was a joke when I walked by this sign the other day! Obviously since I don’t think Katy Perry has any talent, it was low on my priority list to research this image. Well, sure enough, it’s true. You can smell like Katy Perry. “Purr” by Katy Perry is available exclusively at Nordstrom. That store doesn’t exist in Manhattan so it makes perfect sense there are adverts for it plastered across the city. I haven’t had a chance to smell the scent, but I am willing to bet it smells like tuna. If you take off the double Rs, from “Purr,” what are you left with? P.U.
I’m not going to lie. I think singer Katy Perry is talent free. I’ve only been subjected to a few of her songs thankfully. When I finally heard her smash hit “California Gurls,” I literally lost faith in humanity. Why I am I writing about her you ask? When the worlds of street art and propaganda unite, According2g.com likes to visit that intersection from time to time.
Katy Perry is doing a free show at Roseland Ballroom on November 8, 2010 and you can get tickets for free by visiting Windows Phone dot com. Since I know that no one ever clicks on the external links I so kindly go out of my way to provide, you can open a new browser and type in the URL ya damn self if you want to go see her.
We all have the HFA to thank for telling me about this fabulous event where artist Will Cotton talked about his career, posed for a photo with yours truly and even mentioned his recent collaboration with Katy Perry. Awesomeness times 4!
Enjoy another happy famous artist by clicking “play.” It’s that easy!
On September 21, 2010, I saw the wonderful artist Will Cotton give a lecture about his life and career at Christie’s in New York. Prior to the speech, I met the artist and he was super cool. For those who don’t know the work of Will Cotton, he paints images of surreal candy landscapes! His paintings look like actual photos and most of them are enormous in size. His speech was very interesting as he took us through a brief history of his career and showed us some behind the scenes pictures of the maquettes he creates to make his paintings. As most of his paintings consist of pastries, candy, pin-up models and ice cream – the photos he showed us were very interesting! Through his love of these confections, he’s become quite a baker (and is looking into future installations combining his two loves). Most recently, he painted the cover of singer Katy Perry’s new album “Teenage Dream.” Yes, the cover is not a photograph but a Will Cotton painting! (I’m imagining all of you out there pulling out your Katy Perry album and exclaiming “holy s#$!” at this moment). I took a video of Will talking about his experiences working with Katy Perry, so stay tuned for that! Thanks again Will for the insight into your wonderful world.
