Most Disney fairytales take place in a land far, far away, where fame doesn’t exist, Twitter is just a noise birds make and Lady Gaga is some royal who lives in a high castle beyond the hills. But thanks to DeviantArt artist Isaiah Stevens, now we can imagine what it’s like for some of our favorite Disney characters and villains to not only KNOW about the pop world, but transform into some of the biggest musical superstars of our time.
Maybe Pocahontas loves Britney Spears and Aladdin listens to Jay-Z when he’s getting ready to ride his magic carpet— we don’t know. But what I do know is that this art installation confirms that Disney’s next big hit should definitely include some kind of Beyoncé reference. Just imagine it: the Princess falls under a spell, is eventually found by Prince Charming who wakes her up with true love’s kiss, and she pops up wearing an “I woke up like this” T-shirt. Priceless.
Check out some of your favorite Disney characters in pop star garb, including Beyonce as Ursula, above…
Hi, welcome to Camp Lady Gaga Is Boring And Pretentious, population 1 and it’s me. I recognize that I am all but vastly, utterly alone in thinking that this “Lady Gaga” character is one of the most stale, uninteresting “personalities” to have ever made her mark on pop culture. David Bowie, Grace Jones, Madonna Ciccone for Christ’s sake — they did it first, and better. It’s not her image I take issue with, it’s the severe, and I think unmistakable, dichotomy between her mask and her music. She’s so avant-garde! She has a lobster on her head! She’s in a meat dress! She’s in an egg! It’s like the womb! Edgy! Individual! Born this way! Lazy, insufferable ra-ra-ra bubblegum pop cribbed from “Express Yourself,” tossed into the mass media music machine! She’s making a perfume called “Fame” that will be a black liquid with “the feeling and sense” of blood and semen and a bottle heavily “inspired by” Thierry Mugler’s Alien. She snagged the upcoming cover of this year’s Vogue September issue. Tell me why, you guys! When is this person going to do something that’s real and unique? I’m not going to hold my breath, but can we please move past Stefani Germanotta? Bring me the next Britney! Whatever happened to the punk rock pop stars?
Ready for The Meat Dress: Redux? Skeevy photographer Terry Richardson just posted this photo of Lady Gaga on stage in Japan, donning a new version of her infamous meat dress. Luckily for the costume department, this one looks to be made of leather instead of raw beef, and I must say I’m digging the trendy tulip shaped skirt. As far as meat dresses go, this updated style is definitely an improvement. [MTV Style]
Amy Heidemann of the band Karmin is known for her retro hairstyles (and her ability to muppet scat), but her pouf was looking especially voluminous earlier today at the Z100 studios in New York City. What do you think of her look? Is it pop star perfection or a little bit much?
