Gaga or Duchamp or Selavy

For the past year I have been annoying my friends with the idea that Lady Gaga is the Marcel Duchamp of our times. Perhaps it is best to state that I don’t believe her to be an artist of the same caliber but rather I find her celebrity art lifestyle reminiscent of Duchamp’s alter ego, Rrose Selavy.

Regardless I was pleasantly surprised this morning by a link my sister shared with me to Vogue’s website.

Gaga’s Art Piece.

I’m glad to see Lady Gaga recognizes the connection too. And honors it appropriately.
