Is Mona Lisa A Drag Queen?

| Filed under: Etc.


A group of Italian scientists and art historians are appealing to the French government to exhume the skull of the great Leonardo Da Vinci to prove a theory about his greatest work, The Mona Lisa.

The team believes that the painting may actually be a self-portrait of the artist in disguise, based on its similarities to a 1515 self-portrait, da Vinci's homosexuality and fascination with riddles.

By examining the artist's skull, the scientists and historians look to "rebuild Leonardo's face and compare it with the Mona Lisa" and prove that the famed portrait is in fact of da Vinci himself.

    That doesn't make her a drag queen. Where the fake lashes and the highly arched eyebrows and her microphone? That just makes her the female version of him. And this is an old theory, where have you been?

    wow…liberals will grasp at anything to try to forward their agenda

  3. 3

    They've talked about it for years!

  4. 4

    you graduated with honors from NYU and have never heard this?

  5. 5

    Perez do you like butt riddles yourself?

  6. 6

    And children still go hungry, but let's use a ton of money, time and press to pursue our intellectual curiosities. Sorry, I'm just sick of the detached intellectual communities right now. Rapunzel come down from your Ivory Tower. We already know it's him, so let it go and do something that matters NOW!

    Over rated piece of art. Leonardo created much better, his drawings and sketches are much more interesting than this portrait. And plus this theory has been around for ages. Old news.

  8. 8

    it seems that this question has always been around. as for exhuming the body of Da Vinci, that may be a question that gets rejected even before the the paperwork gets filled. I would vote no to the scientists and art historians who will place a request to exhume the skull. plus, Da Vinci would have placed another body in his tomb so that the mystery would be pursued by Nicolas Cage!

    hahah speaking of drag queens, I've been on Dragulator.com seriously all day. You can make yourself or anyone look like a drag queen, its quite fabulous and REALLY freakin funny lol

  10. 10

    i knew this in the womb…

  11. 11

    this is not news mario - historians have though that for years…….you're such an idiot……..

    p.s. buck's comment (#2) couldn't be more true…….

  12. 12

    I was told this in High school it's nothing new! But it wouldn't be a drag queen, he just painted himself as a women didn't make a lifestyle of it.

  13. 13

    Who cares if it's a self portrait? Let it be another mystery to the world like…….Who did Carley Simon write the song, You're so Vain about…..lol!

  14. 14

    Dear Everyone,

    Who cares if it's based on a self portrait?

  15. 15

    Leonardo could paint. But he could only paint one way. All his paintings look the same… and all the people painted from this time frame have the SAME cherub-looking face with the same refines features and the same lack of facial emotion. He painted for rich people and that is why he is famous.

  16. 16

    I don`t think it looks like Leonardo DiCaprio at all. If you notice, the woman in the painting is acting good.

  17. 17

    Who cares if it is or isn't him. Leave him alone to rest in peace and just enjoy his artwork.

  18. 18

    At least we know you're jerking off to the Mona Lisa today and leaving little Justin Bieber alone.

  19. 19

    Uh, perez? I though you were a college grad… they've talked about this for many years now..

  20. SV says – reply to this


    lol thats kind of funny if it is

  21. 21

    theyve been saying this for forever

  22. 22

    Re: laurthib – really, this 'theory' has been around for decades, centuries (?), which lends the question… what the hell did you get out of your liberal arts diploma (if you ever got one) did you do anything with the arts or did you just come here because you heard there was a whole village of gay and bi guys and needed a reason to be here.

  23. 23

    everyone knows its been thought to be a self portrait, maybe if you stopped perving on tweens for two seconds you might know something about the real world.

  24. 6one9 says – reply to this


    I've seen the Mona Lisa “ live. Who really cares if this is a “ self portrait of LDV, only female though. I'm sure there's a lot of kinky artists out there. That's why they are “ artists!!

  25. 25

    So prove it is or prove it isn't and then what? Why exhume a body just out of curiosity?

  26. 26

    That sacrilegious! I'd for one prefer to let it rein in it's mysteriousness… makes it far more interesting not knowing for sure.

  27. 27

    This is not a new theory by the way.

  28. 28

    Dont we have computer programs that do this for us nowadays?

  29. 29

    This is absolutely stupid, a waste of time, and money, and research. WHO THE FUCK CARES. DaVinci was a great artist and a brilliant man. If we all of a sudden find out if this was a painting of himself… what does that mean? What does that prove? What does that solve? What does that cure? Aren't there better things to research like what the fuck is wrong with Heidi Montag's brain?

    Re: Naomid

    Leondardo dicaprio… are you insane?

  32. 32

    That theory has been going around for many, many years.

  33. Laury says – reply to this


    Who cares? Even if it is Leonardo in drag, what is this fact going to change? Absolutely nothing. People will still be interested in seeing that painting, even though apparently, it's not all it's cracked up to be, I know people who have been to the Louvre and seen the Mona Lisa, and it's one of those things that you expect to be amazed by when you see them, and when you actually do, it's like, oh, there's the Mona Lisa, cool, and then you move on.

  34. 34

    Re: yayabuttercup – so true…….and Mario you really are a stupid fucking asshole.

  35. 35

    Re: steelers – in the past year or so, Carly has revealed that the song was written about Warren Beatty. Neil Diamond then took the cue and revealed that Sweet Caroline was written about Caroline Kennedy. :)

  36. 36

    ehh… isnt that kinda old news? they've suspected it for decades, if not longer.. from the very start there were rumors Da Vinci just painted himself..

  37. 37

    Re: MileyCyrusLooksLikeAChipmunk – agree entirely. Well said.

  38. 38

    This has been rumored for YEARS. Great being late to the party people. HA HA

  39. 39

    this isn't new
    it's been said for years and years that the mona lisa is davinci as a woman

  40. 40

    This is a very old story, you are so stupid.

  41. 41

    i thought this was common knowledge.

  42. 42

    I learned that years ago…around the time I was in 4th or 5th grade! This is not new news!

  43. 43

    This is such OLD news its not even funny! I remember watching this on Unsolved Mysterys when I was 10 so it well over 13 years old! Boooirng!

  44. 44

    well mona lisa is pretty homely…

  45. 45

    This has been a theory for the longest time. There are whole books written about it. I learned about it in art class…tell us something new…

  46. 46

    That's nothing new. She does look like a man anyway

  47. 47

    Didn't you go to college, Perez? This is one of the oldest suspicions– and I learned it in middle school.
    And him drawing a female version of himself doesn't make him or the person in the painting a "drag queen." Drag queens are gay men that dress up as women, complete with makeup, heels, and false boobies; the Mona Lisa is, potentially, simply a female portrait of Da Vinci. Most people would refer to this as questioning sexual roles and androgyny, or you could simply call it illustrated cross-dressing. Drag queens are an entirely different animal.

  48. 48

    OOOOOLD news! This was on Unsolved Mysteries back in the DAY.

  49. uhhuh says – reply to this


    this is extremely old news… like, decades old.

  50. 50

    WHo cares?

  51. 51

    who would of thought it????? Anyone who took literature in college.

  52. 52

    Old, old news.
    You're an ignorant piece of sh1t.

  53. 53

    Cool beans. :)

  54. 54

    It has long been surmised that the Mona Lisa is really a Da Vinci self portrait. So no surprise there. Not a drag queen though just another of the genuis's riddles.

  55. 55

    omg its just a painting reall boobs not fake and the awnser what is really mona lisa hiding ridddddicoluseeeeee

  56. 56

    this is old news. historians have been speculating for years that da vinci modeled the Mona after himself. Does that make him a drag queen? I don't think so. There is still mystery surrounding one of the most revered works of art in the western world after five hundred years, that just makes him a brilliant artist. He……, or she, will have the last laugh.

  57. 57


  58. 58

    i guess that's what the smirk is for….

  59. 59

    i hope this isnt true the mona lisa will be tarnished!!!you wont think of her ever again the same

  60. 60

    Hence the 'I know something you don't' smirk on her/his face!

  61. 61

    Uhm, this has been going on for a LONG TIME. This is NOTHING new. It's the female version of himself. Doesn't make him a drag queen. Just using himself as a model.

  62. 62

    perez….this is so dumb. this has been talked about for a long time now.

  63. 63

    this is such old news, holy shit. i learned this years ago in my art history class, and i'm pretty sure it's true, just by comparing the two pieces of art. no need to exude da vinci's skull! what a waste of time and money

  64. 64

    Re: Pussifat
    Apparently Perez is a bit behind on the times… hundreds of years behind…

  65. 65


  66. 66

    "Who would have thought?!"

    Basically the rest of the world except you… this is like 10-year-old news

  67. 67

    i've known about this for as long as i can remember…

  68. 68

    they actually new that a while ago

  69. 69

    this has been a theory for yeaaaaars.

  70. 70

    Re: MissLemon – you're so ignorant for trying to undermine Leonardo da Vinci. go to rome and look at what he did, how many things he painted. Also, why would famous people want a mediocre painter to do the ceiling in sistine chapel. dumbdumbdumb -and perez, what the fuck. are you too busy fantasizing about putting ur wang in celebs to realize things that have been taboo for YEARS?

  71. JoeyW says – reply to this


    'Who would have thought'? Erm….it's a theory that has been around for decades, anyone who pays any attention to the world around them would know this. Guess you never really graduated eh Mario?

  72. 72

    …. This is REALLY old news. I learned about this in high school… You're slow.

  73. 73

    This is an old, old theory that stems solely from the fact DeVinci was gay. There is no evidence that he was a cross-dresser. Considering that, I am surprised that Perez would give any credence to this! Most gay men are NOT cross-dressers. In fact, most cross-dressing men are NOT gay. This is an insane request: to exhume his body to reconstruct his face to prove what exactly? It won't happen and it shouldn't. People will continue to speculate, but this theory comes from the mistaken tie between homosexuality and cross-dressing - not any factual evidence. Is it POSSIBLE that Divinci used himself as the subject? Sure. Anything is POSSIBLE, but there is no evidence to prove it and exhuming his body won't accomplish anything. Also, it is disgusting!

  74. 74

    Since when do we exhume human bodies for the purpose of confirming a "fun fact" about a painting. wtf is going on? who cares if the mona lisa is a self-portrait of a tranny?

  75. 75

    dude..this is very old news. dosent anyone READ anymore?

  76. 76

    since its been a discussion for decade,, i guess lots of people thought

  77. 77

    God this was mentioned in the Da vinci code its old news Prezzie.

  78. 78

    Who gives a shit. What a waste of time and money. No need to dig up the poor guy to prove something that won't even make an impact in the world.

  79. 79

    hella! SEXY SEXY
