Lady Gaga Turns A Urinal Into Art

| Filed under: Lady GaGa

Everything she touches turns to gold art!

Lady Gaga presented her own piece of art at the Inside/Out exhibition at the SHOWstudio.com shop in London. And it's a urinal!

The piece, which is named Armitage Shanks, was a prop from her recent Vogue Hommes Japan shoot where the pop star was photographed as a man.

The urinal is placed on its side and the back of the bowl reads, "I'm not f**king Duchamp but I love pissing with you." For those of you who don't get it, it's a reference to Marcel Duchamp's Fountain.

Amazing!

  2. 2

    Appropriate



  3. 3

    I guess what they say it true, art is subjective..

    this woman is about the trashiest piece of a human being i ever saw, she has totally beat madonna for being the lowest class!



  5. 5

    art? ahahah is that a joke !!! she sucks and everything she touches tourns into shit !!! she tries too hard to be like madonna perez. get a life. ur delusional just like gaga.



  6. 6

    FIRST THE BITCH BLATANTLY RIPS OFF THE ENTIRE STYLE SPECTRUM OF ISABELLA BLOW AND THEN SHE GOES OFF RIPPING OFF DUCHAMP. BITCH, JUST BECAUSE YOU REFERENCE YOUR INFLUENCES BY NAME AND WEAR THEM ON YOUR SLEEVE DOESN'T MAKE YOU ANY MORE ORIGINAL SWEETHEART, AND IT CERTAINLY DOESNT MAKE YOU ANY MORE INTELLECTUAL EITHER…

    TRULY SAD THAT THAT PARTICULAR PIECE IS BEING PASSED OFF AS ART SIMPLY BECAUSE GAGA SIGNED THE FUCKING THING WITH AN ODE TO DUCHAMP.



  7. 7

    Wow, Perez, this makes her even more amazing! Douchebag!



  8. 8

    I don't see the "art" in this… Mmm… whatever. Love Gaga's music, videos and just about everything else she does.



  9. 9

    she is so LAME. BORING



  10. 10

    I honestly don't see the point of it. If someone already done that, 80 years ago,than why do you say that everything she touches turns to art?



  11. 11

    SHE KEEPS SENDING U THIS BULLSHIT. SHES BORING .SHES NOT COOL LIKE MADONNA



  12. 12

    you know what, Gaga needs to stop trying so hard. She didn't come up with this, nor does she even know what the hell she is referencing.. Shes an idiot. As for the part about her dressing up like a man in her video, she doesn't have to try hard at all, she already has all the hardware, and she is not feminine at all.. what a disgrace…



  13. 13

    How very pseudo-intellectual.



  14. 14

    she is shit just like u are perez



  15. 15

    I dont know why GAGA is even friends with you! You're everything she says shes against!
    Either shes a big hypocrite or you're a great guy! One of those is harder to believe….



  16. 16

    That's just fucking weird.



  17. 17

    Perez, if she air-brushed her poop you would say amaze=balls



  18. 18

    Armitage Shanks is a maker of toilets, urinals and sinks. I don't think Gaga came up with that one.



  19. 19

    boring



  20. 20

    OK



  21. 21

    ,i, gaga is a fraud



  22. 22

    madonna wannabe



  23. 23

    She's not an artist, so she needs to stop acting like. That's just stupid.



  24. 24

    gaga is boring shes not art. unoriginal ppl arent art



  25. 25

    So she copies Marcel Duchamp and Perez decides that everything she touches turn to art? (Oh, and Perez didn't get it either. He had to look up Duchamp on Wikipedia.)



  26. 26

    That isn't art, it is a urinal placed on its side. I think it is gross.



  27. 27

    IS this the daily paid Gaga post? Or will there be another one later?



  28. 28

    see she is a man



  29. 29

    glad you used the word Amazing.
    Instead of amazeballs..



  30. 30

    "amazing" would be you shutting the hell up about gaga for 2 seconds………..



  31. 31

    complete poser



  32. 32

    Amazing it is NOT. Try to be original next time.



  33. 33

    Would be more appropriate if it was a toilet so all her little Monsturds could be flushed. This is artspeak at it's lowest form, she's an insult to true artists. You and her fans are brainwashed by this famewhore.



  34. 34

    AND TO THE SEVERAL PEOPLE WHO 'LIKED' THIS…YOU'RE FUCKING MORONS



  35. 35

    you mean a reference to "R. Mutt"!!!!hahahahahahahaha

  36. slip says – reply to this


    36

    Amazing? Really? Its a fucking piss pot.



  37. 37

    i get it, its a self portrait!



  38. 38

    gaga is getting boring time after time. she looks like a kid



  39. 39

    .i.



  40. 40

    Your as pathetic as she is Mario.



  41. 41

    next



  42. 42

    nytimes ;p why every new star copies madonna !!! madonna #1



  43. 43

    ha..if anyone else did this shit youd go on and on about how fucking STUPID this shit is! ugh

    everything GAGa touches turns to SHIT



  44. 44

    boring wannabe



  45. 45

    This is proof that you are so far up Gaga ass that she can take a urinal and turn it on it's side and you think it's amazing. You, my friend, and a complete idiot.



  46. 46

    ART?? ART??? You're fucking kidding me? AAAAAhahahahahaaaaaaaa! How appropriate to think anything of hers that might be considered "art" in this instance has to do with the bathroom.



  47. 47

    shes absolutely nothing.she has to come with this tramp to try to be original. even GRACE JONES CALLED GAGA UNORIGINAL. BUY UR OWN PERSONALITY LOSER. AND STOP COPYING WHAT IS ALREDATY DONE rolling stones, ny times .eeven they said u copy what is done. is this a cool thing? no. u wont last. cause u arent original. wearing stupid clothes inst art. and ur songs sucks. not big hits to last in time.



  48. 48

    madonna wannabe, grace jones wannabe



  49. 49

    OK- THIS IS AWESOME, SHE IS FUCKING HERSELF OFF
    63 COMMENTS AND THEY'RE ALMOST BAD.

    AMAZEBALLS. SO EPIC.

    LADY CACA IS FINALLY DYING.



  50. 50

    YEA, ALWAYS KNEW LADY CACA WAS A MAN. IMMA SURE HER TRANNY COCK WAS LONG ENOUGH TO REACH INTO A MALE URINAL. NICCCE JOB!! ILLUMINATI HANDS UP (JUST THE FIRST AND 4TH FINGER, HAHA).



  51. 51

    That's not original. How many artists in the 90's threw a urinal on a wall in a gallery?

  52. ass says – reply to this


    52

    I can't stand how everyone's just eating up her bullshit. She's a complete fraud for fuck sake.



  53. 53

    the only thing controversial about this is that someone who continuously rips off other artists is admired for being original



  54. 54

    That is the dumbest thing I've ever seen!



  55. 55

    Yeah AMAZING!! Give me a fucking break! If she took a shit and molded it into snowman you would say how amazing it was. Give me a break. This isnt art its garbage.



  56. 56

    yes, because signing a urinal with sharpie is art.



  57. 57

    She's so foul! Everything she touches turns to shit!



  58. 58

    *shakes head*



  59. 59

    very unoriginal.



  60. 60

    this is insulting to true artists..

  61. Feste says – reply to this


    61

    Lady GaGa meets. DaDa. Lady DaDa? :P



  62. 62

    who…cares…?



  63. 63

    She is disgusting. Gross. She is so dirty, nasty and ugly. Her music is ok. Just wearing your underwear in public doesn't make you outrageous, it just make your low rent. So over her.



  64. 64

    Studied Duchamp's work in class last semester! xD



  65. 65

    You fail to mention that Marcel DuChamp was a weirdo dadaist and the original work that this is modeled after was a stupid piece of self indulgent shit. Just cause it's old and a little freaky doesn't make a piece of art worthwhile. It figures pretentious GaGa would cite and emulate this particular work of art.



  66. 66

    Re: DeeeeeeLIIIIITEE – OK.. you know, I don't like this Lady CaCa either but, I don't go around spamming any site with a thousand postings of the same message. We already read what you posted, now lay off the shit. Is taking unnecessary space, let others post their comments.



  67. 67

    Re: That Cat – lol, it's true it's true.



  68. 68

    One more thing Mario. Can you please do something to stop DeeeeLIIIIIITE from endlessly posting their stupid cut and paste comments? I don't love GaGa either but this fucker is getting ANNOYING!!!!!!



  69. 69

    Yes, This is very reminiscent of Duchamp's "Fountain" piece.



  70. 70

    Duchamp, with his "readymade" art pieces was stating that you could take an existing object, reinterpret it somewhat differently, put your signature on it and call it brand new art. Which makes sense, because Gaga is appropriating Madonna's and Roisin Murphy's and Grace Jones' work and image, and calling the result "original". Of course, Duchamp was being "tongue-in-cheek". Gaga, I'm not so sure.



  71. 71

    This was done many moons ago.. so not original. She is so trashy.



  72. 72

    This isn't art, it's a fucking urinal. This is as close to Lady GaGa taking a dump and you saying it's magical as we've gotten.



  73. 73

    Sorry, she may say she's no Duchamp (and she never will be so original) but then what is the point and worth behind this 'piece' when it is a blatant copy. Not impressed Gaga, and for anyone who knows about art, they would understand that Duchamp's Fountain is one of the most recognizable works of the 20th Century and for a pop artist to attempt to leech off of his work is insulting to the real artist. There is no real thought or concept behind this piece, she simply signed a urinal - end of story. Go back to school Perez and learn something about real art.



  74. 74

    Like Perez knew who Duchamp was, ha…I'm sure he had to Google him. Perez only knows about one hit wonders and gossip mongers, not artists and certainly not Dada-ism.



  75. 75

    How is this art? Its a fucking urinal with her sloppy ass writing!



  76. 76

    shouldn't that read, "everything she touches turns to piss?"



  77. 77

    Re: DeeeeeeLIIIIITEE
    Since you keep bringing up Madonna, you can say this urinal is GaGa's ultimate tribute to her. Symbolic actually–that is where Madonna's next movie is going to end up.



  78. 78

    Everything she touches needs to be disinfected.



  79. 79

    So what is she going to drink out of now?



  80. 80

    If Kristen Stewart put this out as art you'd be saying how stupid and pointless it is.

    I hope you know that idol worship is forbidden and there's no Gaga God in heaven. You need to get your priorities straight and stop worshiping this… thing!



  81. 81

    There is absolutely nothing artistic or amazing about this.

    The only thing I would find amazing is if someone actually spent money on it.



  82. 82

    *

    Hmm…

    *

    ….so…uh…where's that…er…"art"….?

    *

    I just see something I piss in every day that some urinal company manufactured.

    *

    But then, mayb you figure it is "art" thinking about all the dinguses that have hung into it draining what you would likely consider their golden nectar into it.

    *

    How shiztastic for you, Perez.

    *



  83. 83

    she scrawls on a toilet and all the sheep shout, "art!" baa…baa….baaa!



  84. 84

    not original at all.



  85. 85

    Duchamp was ahead of his time 100 years ago. CaCa is such a thief and a disgrace to the art community. What a poser.



  86. 86

    well that just pissed me off. you cant copy off of someone elses work and call it your own? duchamp was a pioneer in the art world with the dada theory.. you cant just take that and slap your name on it and call it your own. especially when duchamp already did the urinal! its not a reference ITS THE SAME ART PIECE with gagas name writtin on it instead. i think it shows no creativity when someone can copy off of someone elses brilliant art work. it obviously took no time at all for her to make this peice of "art" and thats why its not art at all.



  87. 87

    Oh no, she gave that away? What is she going to use to wash and dye her hair?
    How will she ever get that urine colored hair she has been sporting. Oh well, I would love to piss on her head if she misses that urine look, I'm that kind of guy, it would be an honor. As Porky Pedo says, "Pick me! Pick me!"



  88. 88

    another reason why I hate gaga. She proves she can't be original. Such a copy-cat loser.



  89. 89

    Oh dear this is really disappointing; I would have expected more from her than trying to ride on Duchamps' coattails in such a derivative fashion. It doesn't work, and now I'm beginning to wonder how much authentic steam this girl has in her.

  90. china says – reply to this


    90

    a result from a look into the mirror, caca? piss-yellow hair framing a horseface.
    though most guys would likely prefer to piss on the "artist" in person…



  91. 91

    Duchamp was amazing. His Fountain is the type of piece and statement that can only really be made once. In fact, the artistic message of Armitage Shanks seems to be that art CANNOT be everywhere. It's a middle finger to the Fountain, not an homage. I find it strange because Lady Gaga's message seems to be that she IS art at all times. Sometimes she really does seem like an unabashed duplication of the pre-existing. In this context, Armitage Shanks might actually be vaguely interesting as outsider art, as it doesn't represent an artistic vision as much as the copy-paste cultural milieu from which it was born.



  92. 92

    It just gets dumber.



  93. 93

    thats not art - its shit!
    nothing amazing about it



  94. 94

    ps Armitage Shanks is a BRAND - my toilet is Armitage Shanks lol



  95. 95

    love it



  96. 96

    "I'm not f**king Duchamp but I love pissing with you."

    Gaga is crazy! Love it. :)



  97. 97

    That last, (very) tiny bit of respect I had for Lady Gaga has just been blown out the window. She blatantly rides on other people's coattails to get attention and be recognized. People who have been doing their work for many years before her and will continue to do so many years after she's gone (and she won't be remembered and revered as they would) First John Lennon's piano, now one of the most talked about and most influential art pieces ever known is being ripped off and exploited. Screw you Lady Gaga



  98. 98

    See, Perez, I do like GaGa, although not as much as you do, but there's a point where even if you're a diehard fan, you gotta admit that sometimes some of the things your favorite artist does is pure bullshit.



  99. 99

    If anyone knows art history, Marcel Duchamp did a piece called fountain in 1917. Look it up, it's just a urinal. I guess she is paying tribute, but it's a total rip off……….. Gaga so lamo……
