Lady Gaga+Francesco Vezzoli
This Lady Gaga phenomenom is weird, When I first saw her, I have to say I hated her, it’s just the (awful) way she dresses. I know she wants/needs the attention, but it’s too much for me. But her music is somenthing else, I don’t specially like it, that was until Papparazzi, which, I have to say, is my guilty pleasure right now. A few days ago I read somewhere on the web that she had teamed with italian artist Francesco Vezzoli for a show at MOCA’s 30th Anniversary Celebration in LA. She sang her new single “Speechless” along a pink piano with butterflies painted by Damien Hirst, while the Bolshoi Ballet danced in the stage in costumes designed by Miuccia Prada. The whole show was, of course, masterminded by Vezzoli; who has often flirted with the show business. Looking Lady Gaga through the “art glass” surely puts things in a different perspective, I at least, stop thinking about her as an extravagant self-centered girl in desperate need of attention, and start considering her as an artist. So, very clever move by Lady Gaga and Vezzoli, both of them getting something from teaming up with each other.
