Oh dear. Sir Elton has spoken out on his true feelings about Madonna and whether or not you agree, it’s pretty damn funny.
“Sorry, her career is over. Her tour has been a disaster and it couldn’t happen to a bigger c***. If Madonna had any common sense she would have made a record like Ray Of Light and stayed away from the dance stuff and just been a great pop singer and make great pop records, which she does brilliantly. But no, she had to go and prove… she looks like a f****** fairground stripper. She’s been horrible to Gaga.” – Elton John

Lady Gaga by Ari Lankin
New York! Ari Lankin’s latest solo exhibition is now showing at Stumble Upon in New York. I love Ari Lankin’s work so much as he is one of he few artists around these days who is a true master of many styles. If you follow Ari Lankin’s work you’ve surely seen the fascinating videos on his official website where he shows you the process of his works from inception to completion. If you haven’t, the link in that last sentence will open in a new window – so get to clicking! I’ve been fortunate to get to know Ari as a result of this blog and I am so thankful. Ari is a prince of a guy who is both super cool extremely intelligent to talk to.
Emotional Architecture by Ari Lankin
This exhibit is the first time so many styles of his work have been shown in the same exhibit and it’s pretty bad ass to be so young and talented and already be having a retrospective of his work. The exhibit will be up until mid-April, 2012 at Stumble Upon HQ (73 Spring Street between Crosby and Lafayette) in New York by appointment only. Email email@example.com to check out this exhibit and I highly recommend it!

Mom and Dad by Terry Richardson. Now showing at Half Gallery in New York through December 4, 2011
Ever wondered what Terry Richardson’s family album might look like? Wonder no more. His exhibit “Mom and Dad” at Half Gallery in New York is here! The photos are taken from a 2-volume coffee table book that was published earlier this year. The photos could only be Terry Richardson’s parents as the artsy photos range from touching portraits to desperate times. Terry’s parents divorced when he was young and his father has since passed on so this was Terry’s way of bringing his folks back together – even if only for the duration of an exhibit.
The opening night reception (on 11/11/11) was quite a scene and I spotted former REM singer Michael Stipe in the crowd.

And of course, Terry Richardson was also in attendance. As always, he’s a really cool guy. In other Terry Richardson news, Terry and Lady Gaga are releasing a collaborative book and they are going to be signing copies at the New Museum in New York on November 22, 2011. You have to purchase the book in person on November 15, 2011 beginning at 10 am. That’s going to be quite a scene. Find out more details on the New Museum’s website.

Thanks Terry! Love you, man! “Mom and Dad” by Terry Richardson is showing at the Half Gallery (located at 208 Forsyth) in Manhattan until December 4, 2011.

PizzaGaga in New York
Wow! What a smart way to appeal to the gays in Chelsea – PizzaGaga! I wonder if the pizza is marginally talented and tastes like all the other pizza but has a great marketing machine so it’s the most popular pizza in the land?
