    Haven't a clue what you're talking about, but she's making tons of dough, seems to be enjoying herself. And that's what work's all about isn't it.

    In any case, if she's copying Duchamp's urinal, that's kind of in keeping with the spirit/intent of the original. Although she isn't doing anything that hasn't been done about 10,000 times already by art students making commentaries on our disposable consumerist society....

    She references Duchamp in the piece, text inside. So it's more like an homage, not a copy.

    I think Duchamp would approve of Lady Gaga.
