    Lady Gaga submits first artwork, copies DuChamp

    Lady Gaga copied DuChamp's urinal. She copies Madonna all the time too, so who will she copy next? Can she get her own ideas next time?

    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.

    It sounds like a joke to me.

    Link?

    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....
    We live in an ageist society where everything is based on youth, but I hated being 18. I don't like teenagers any more now than I did then. I'm 49 now and there is no way that I'd go back to my teens and 20s - even if I knew what I know now, I don't want to go through all that again. I found it a very difficult time. - Buzz Osborne of the Melvins

    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.
