Anne Pigalle says ‘enough is enough’ to Lady Gaga, over the pop diva’s alleged copying of the fabulous chanteuse’s celebrated image.
Ms. Pigalle tells Dangerous MInds that she will be posting a series of comparative photographs that will highlight apparent similarities between her own celebrated and idiosyncratic style with Lady Gaga’s recent make-overs. Imitation may be the sincerest form of flattery, but nothing beats originality.
Now, judge for yourself, as we post a selection of these pictures.
Ben Gazzara performs Charles Bukowski’s poem “Style,” from Marco Ferreri’s film Tales of Ordinary Madness.
Style is the answer to everything
A fresh way to approach a dull or dangerous
To do a dull thing with style is preferable
to doing a dangerous thing without it
To do a dangerous thing with style, is what
I call art
Bullfighting can be an art
Boxing can be an art
Loving can be an art
Opening a can of sardines can be an art
Not many have style
Not many can keep style
I have seen dogs with more style than men
Although not many dogs have style
Cats have it with abundance
When Hemingway put his brains
to the wall with a shotgun, that was style
For sometimes people give you style
Joan of Arc had style
John the Baptist
I have met men in jail with style
I have met more men in jail with style
than men out of jail
Style is a difference, a way of doing,
a way of being done
Six herons standing quietly in a pool of water,
or you, walking out of the bathroom naked without seeing me
A memorable definition, and a fine delivery from Gazzara, which you can compare against Bukowski’s reading below.
