Lady Gaga–Botticelli’s pop culture muse?

lady-gaga-applause-video-influences-venus-is-bornWhile the Medici may have foreseen Botticelli’s genius, and thereby commissioned The Birth of Venus, they could have never foreseen the transformations and appropriations that this masterpiece would later undergo… First, Venus’s rebirth made it’s way into one of Andy Warhol’s screen-print series (Details of Renaissance Paintings), where he chose just to display Venus’s face and flowing locks in an array of vibrant color combos. Next, it seems that even Gaga would go as far as to get herself on her own floating shell to imitate the Greek goddess. She posed nude with Botticelli’s work as the backdrop for her album cover last year. So what do Venus and Gaga have in common? They’ve both been “born this way.” http://bit.ly/19nYIYp
