Lady Gaga gets nude — and weird — Marina Abramovic-style
Dear Lady Gaga: Color us shallow, but we just don’t get this latest thing you’re doing, via the Marina Abramovic Institute.
The pop star took some lessons from the trés famous performance artist and the result is a video you’ve got to see to disbelieve — a censored version is above for your convenience.
Expect the unexpected, including crystal hugging, eyeball horns, nude forest strolling and stretching, and this One Vocal Tone going on for a Really Long Time.
“Last week at a three-day retreat in upstate New York, Marina instructed Lady Gaga in the Abramovic Method — a series of exercises designed to heighten participants’ awareness of their physical and mental experience in the present moment,” reads the information with the video, which was posted Wednesday. (Apparently the thing is a promotion for a Kickstarter campaign by the institute, but we still don’t get it.)
The NSFW video, which shows a fully nude Gaga and — did we mention? — includes this One Vocal Tone going on for a Really Long Time, can be seen elsewhere. Hopefully by viewers more sophisticated than the Ministry. Though we must say, that hip surgery seems to be working out well.
Going back to “Blurred Lines” now. And not the nudie version.
You can dance to it.
