Lady Gaga’s latest attempt to shock the world with art is her perfume ad. Yes, it comes in a elegant black bottle. …AND? The page ad is simple Gaga nude with a mask and tiny little men crawling all over her. THIS is supposed to shock me? Really? I mean, its perfume. Probably perfume I can’t afford, but perfume all the same. And Lady Gaga naked? Pah-leese! I’m an artist. The human form is nothing shocking to me. I model nude for art classes. Another twiggy female baring her goodies is not shocking to me. As for the tiny men crawling all over her? —I’m sure there is a “gay boy’s dream” joke in there somewhere.
Yes, artistically it is a pretty piece of advertising, but as far as “shocking”, I’m unimpressed. =(
