Lady Gaga is willing to get naked for her art.
The singer, who has been recuperating from a nasty hip injury sustained earlier this year, underwent a process called The Abramovic Method that's supposed to help the participant "both perform and observe long durational work."
Under the instruction of performance artist Marina Abramovic, Gaga hums, meditates in water, and then walks through woods wearing nothing but a pair of boots.
Of course, this being Gaga, the experience was captured on camera for the interested (the video is NSFW).
The Marina Abramovic Institute (MAI) explains in the video's description that Gaga joined Abramovic in upstate New York last week to participate in the Method, which is a "series of exercises designed to heighten participants' awareness of their physical and mental experience in the present moment."
Abramovic, whom you've also seen show up in JAY Z's "Picasso Baby" performance art film that was filmed from his hours-long performance at the New York's Pace Gallery in July, has launched a Kickstarter fund to further develop the MAI. (The Institute is dedicated to long - read: six hours or more - performances.)
In an interview with New York Magazine's Vulture, the New York artist - who was born in Serbia and began her career in the early '70s - said that she's pleased at the overlap she's seeing between pop culture and performance art.
"For me, it’s very important that the rapper community and the Twitter [community] actually start Googling to understand what performance art is," she said. "It’s really important that I can shift the public from the one field [i.e., pop music] to the arts, which rarely happens." The JAY Z performance, she continued, was a "really very meaningful thing."
Lady Gaga would likely agree, given that her next album is called "ARTPOP." The first single from the record is expected to drop on August 19, ahead of her performance at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 25.

I watched that lady gaga video and she wasn't wearing any clothes! I saw her boobies! I saw her little clam thingie but it didn't have any hairs on it.
too see his thingie.
"Lady Gaga is willing to get naked for her art."
LMAO, this is art as much as the first woman who started painting with her breasts. This is just a trendy, pathetic grab for more attention.
gaga was always pathetic that is why she is in the mess she is in...
grim and adam – jealous much – you all are so talented, and famous, and have so many fans, huh? the fact you two even clicked on the story escapes your limited awareness, eh?
Shorn little panty trolls are the best.
are slippery when wet. Thanks.
3rd tech flop–don't bother - she is finito
do not respond too her anymore
Please, not while I'm eating!
Gaga is rich. She can at least score higher grade crystal than that. Better call Heisenberg for the Blue.
and she pays her boyfriends paycheck too-burp
Miss you already come back too Hollywood soon!
Looks like my load crystallized between her legs
doesn't matter what you think....they all want her.
she is as attractive as a bowl of soup.
Yeah, emperors new clothes, or no clothes. There's one born every minute man.
I'd eat the soup long before I'd eat Gaga.
come home soon!
she should figure out the Ice issue instead of blaming others for it...
Too bad that all the cyrstals and chanting in the world won't cleanse her of the sin of subjecting humanity to her shoddy music.
there is not sin dear nobody has done anything.
And that is your brain on drugs.
I'd marry her .. I don't know what you all are on..but I like her...
She's not getting naked for art. She's getting naked for money and attention.
Art is dead...
Another form of meat dress, complete with USDA stamps or something. lol.
Ironically, this is on the same page as the story about parents who allowed two children to die because they rejected medical treatment in favor of prayer. Use crystals and other New-age approaches if you wish, but not as the sole treatment.
What about those parents who refused to seek medical help for their daughter and only "prayed" for her after she had a seizure? She died as a result. USA is nutt central.
LOVE U GAGA! LM4EVER
She should be arrested for abuse of a quartz.
Alternative methods of healing my not work for those who have their mind already made up that it is ALL a bunch of bull. However the mind is a powerful healing tool and if a person feels better from certain types of activities that may seem strange to non believes isn't that considered healing if it has at the very least make the patient feel better.. Sure rubbing a leaf on a broken leg is not going to do much. But having a closed mind to everything except for pills is not a cure all either. Pharmaceutical companies spend billions each year finding new cures, unfortunately most have list of side effects longer than the actual benefits. But, it is something they can sell you and make money. Where as meditation is free and can work wonders for stress. I don't think we give our bodies enough credit and are trained that taking a pill is always the way to go. Just remember big business will sell you thing you don't need if they can make money doing so. The GOP and the Tea Party want to make it that much easier for this big companies to do just that. Sell you more stuff that actually maybe harmful just to make money. The Tea Party and the GOP believes that big companies will regulate themselves. They will not put a harmful drug on the market if they can make a quick billion, no way. They will not dumb toxic waste into a river for free if the alternative is paying thousands to have it disposed of the right way, no they would never do that. Well think again, they will have and will continue to do so more often than you would care to know. How this type of thinking makes us a much more "free" country I have no idea. Once a company or an individuals lack of responsibility impacts my life. liberty and happiness, having freedoms to own a gun seem like a very minor priority.
Now that you have exhausted your fingers, perhaps you could read the article and know that this has nothing to do with "the healing power" any more than it has to do with geology. It is the typical crude attention-seeking of a third-rate clown masquerading as an artist. As for everything you said...I can sum it up in one sentence with a hat tip to P T Barnum: There's a seeker born every minute. (And cashing in is lucrative indeed.)
best famale artist since madona....
If by "best" you mean "similarly trashy and significantly less talented."
Best Korean car since Kia!
Yeah, well if Madonna had never existed, there would not have been someone for Gaga to copycat!
is a jealous person.
It's too bad some intelligence and knowledge isn't imparted in the process of Abramovic. LOL
If she wasn't naked nobody would care.

You'd think that big hunk of crystal would be cold against her bare hoo-haw and nippies.
