Lady Gaga Art Pop
New York Little Monsters! You have mere hours to see a pop-up exhibit of all things ArtPop. Lady Gaga’s new album “ArtPop” dropped this week and to celebrate, she opened a 3 day only exhibit of Gaga ephemera in both New York and Los Angeles.
“Do What U Want” art work
Hanging from the walls are gigantic canvases of the artwork that will feature on upcoming singles.
Lady Gaga and Jeff Koons
Photos of her working with the CD cover artist Jeff Koons also feature throughout the exhibit.
Lady Gaga – Costumes
Many of her costumes are also on display.
“Dope” cover art
The horrifying cover art of “Dope” where Gaga has a creepy looking grill in her mouth can also be seen.
I need you more than dope
Lyrics from “PopArt” are all over the walls of the pop-up space.
Gaga’s “Binary Chair” that was featured in photo shoots is also on exhibit.
Lots of nudity features in the artwork for the singles on this album. Above is Stephen Klein’s photo for “Gypsy.”
If you are fascinated by Jeff Koons’ “Gazing Ball,” you can see photos from his 2013 exhibit of the same name here (link will open in a new window).
The Meat Dress!
The infamous meat dress is on display (though it looks a little bit like beef jerky now).
One Second I’m A Koons Then Suddenly The Koons Is Me
This is possibly the best lyric Gaga has ever had, according2g.

Lady Gaga and Geoffrey Dicker 2013
Lady Gaga! Arguably the biggest star in the music world in 2013 and whether you like her or hate her, she is EVERYWHERE! She has been rehearsing (pretty close to my house, I might add) for her appearance on the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards and when word spread that she was in town, Gaga fans from near and far camped out at her studio to get a glimpse of ‘Mother Monster.’ I met Gaga a few years ago when she was first becoming a mega-star and I was so impressed by how nice she was towards her fans. Since that time, her fame and fan base has only grown exponentially. By the time she was getting ready to leave, I’d estimate that 100 little monsters had gathered to see Gaga. Gaga did her best to accommodate everyone and I’d estimate that she took photos with people for a solid 10 minutes, despite being swarmed by fans and paparazzi. A fan brought her a bottle of champagne and Gaga cracked it open and her and the fan took a swig! Gaga really did her best to give everyone a little bit of face time and even when my moment came, I was getting swallowed up in the crowd and when Gaga and I made eye contact, she grabbed my arm and pulled me through the crowd so that I could take a photo. I’m admittedly not the hugest fan of her music, but the way she treats her fans is possibly better than ANYONE I’VE EVER SEEN! And as you know, from my experiences, that speaks volumes. I am seriously in awe of how cool Gaga is, and I have so much respect for her because she knows full well that the way she treated all of us that night will always be thought of as a great experience, despite the chaotic situation. She’s also a champion (and has always been) for gay rights and equality and many people in positions similar to hers are more interested in their paychecks than putting their neck on the line to stand up for what they believe in. Gaga, you are a class act!!!! THANK YOU!!!!

Huge shock: Record labels are lying douche-bags who are trying to take advantage of fans. Here’s MORE proof! (via Prefix Mag)

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!
