Sure, we could talk about the upcoming release of Lady Gaga's third studio album ARTPOP. Or the controversy surrounding the album's (alleged) first leaked song, the "burqa swag" anthem "Aura."
But neither of those two subject are nearly as jam-packed with WTFuckery as Gaga's contribution to the cult of self-described performance art matriarch Marina Abramovic.
Appearing in a new video from the Marina Abramovic Institute, Gaga, on a "three-day retreat in upstate New York" with Abramovic, can be seen being guided by the conceptual artist to perform "a series of exercises designed to heighten participants' awareness of their physical and mental experience in the present moment."
It's like Old Joy meets The Ring.
The Abramovic Method, which certainly exhibits all the trappings of controlled systematic indoctrination, apparently demands you be fully naked while becoming one with Abramovic's madness.
So it's not all bad.
ARTPOP hits stores November 11th through Interscope.

"Yeah I'd rather not have a heightened awareness when I'm riding the N train during rush hour. I want to be as unaware as possible."
Also, Ms. Gaga, the letter 'B' comes after 'Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa'.
You might be wrong.
As someone else has already pointed out, this person literally appears in a Jay Z video. It's not a white people thing.
Word. All I can think of when I watch this is, "Damn White people got way too much time on their hands."
Question: can someone crosspost this on Jez stat so there can be some commenter pushback against "lol a pussy, my weiner'd fit great and I'd sploogein'er" angle? Okay, is it a 1) look-at-me moment and 2) weird? 1) sort of, but it's lady gaga so, meh and 2) sort of, but not much weirder than watching someone's bikram or movement class as an outsider.edit: it's there, rightly buried beneath a bey pixie
