In 1991 Montreal Artist Jane Sterbak’s piece “Vanitas: Flesh Dress for an Albino Anorectic” hung in the National Gallery of Canada in Ottawa, ON I wonder if Lady Gaga knew of this reference when she decided to have “the House of Gaga” design it for her?? Frankly I think Sterbak’s message was far more intellectual. “Vanity vs. Bodily Decay” What the hell did Gaga tell Ellen DeGeneres it was about?? “… if we don’t stand up for what we believe in, if we don’t fight for our rights, pretty soon we’re going to have as much rights as the meat on our bones.” WTF???
Lady Gaga is a talented girl but that does not make any sense.
Even back 1991 Sterbak’s dress caused a great deal of flack.
