Did you see the Lady Gaga windows at Barneys this past holiday? Neither did I or anyone I know. As Down with the Slant's Mac put it, "Who are they pandering to?" Apparently though some folks did go up to Barneys and recognized what they saw. The windows ripped of the work of Colette the Artist, whose work spans four decades. Colette was alerted to the forgery and went uptown to discover if it was true. Her artistic reply is in the video above.
Picasso may have said "Good artists borrow; great artists steal" (but probably didn't). Lady Gaga and her "body of work" is more like taking the canvas of a great work up to a subpar Canon copier and calling it art. It cheapens the original work and states an utter contempt for art. Gaga is a Tumblr of a human being.
