Yoko Ono: ‘Art Would Be Dead Without Lady GaGa’

Published: Friday 20th Dec 2013 by David


Robbie Myers‘Elle‘ caught up with ‘Something More Abstract’ creator Yoko Ono recently, quizzing the Tokyo-born icon on a number of Pop culture related issues.

One of these, being ‘Paparazzi’ performer Lady GaGa, whom she showers with love via a quote that’s sure to split opinions faster than Moses did the Red Sea.

Read below…

“For both women and men, it is good to have an artist like Lady Gaga stick her neck out. Otherwise, art will be dead.”

When asked who she thought was leading the charge of forward thinking artists, Ono gave the answer above as her reply, going on to share when asked on her feelings towards Dance music:

“They are the singularly most artistic music chart in all the charts! It’s how you see and listen to it. The music gives people the lightness of life.”

    Art being dead without Gaga, False what I can say is that she gives theatrical performances that give Broadway musical tease. That style would probably be dead since not many people are doing it

    No lies detected tbh.. She is 100% correct

    I’m here for the meltdown from the trolls though, as u can see, they have already started with the meltdowns above

    And DEAD at this white trailor trash coming back to Tgj after it vowed never to return. The bish has been trolling us under different names for too long now and got bored and decided to go back to his usual name. MESS

  10. lovebird – Shade Gala WT, your fav is not safe (20TH – 23RD) December 20, 2013

    First of all, who is this nobody b**** and what the f*** is she talking about?

    There are only two people who can save art, Queen Amanda Bynes and Fashion Legend Cynthia.

    Cynthia’s vogue cover slays your fav and you will deal.

  11. Hivy December 20, 2013

    On the release of ArtPop she seems to be doing the opposite.

  12. lovebird – Shade Gala WT, your fav is not safe (20TH – 23RD) December 20, 2013

    Gurl who gives a f*** about Artpop?

    BeyTranny, Basic Perry, RiGanja, T***** Caca, HIVy Virus better all hide their wigs, Queen Amanda Bynes rap album is coming to slay.

    And after Legendtoya drops her single, itunes servers will he broken.

  13. BEYHIVE_MINAJ December 20, 2013

    And I thought I couldn’t stand the original lovebird. At least she can keep it civil and diplomatic when she wants to. And about what yoko said,well lady gaga was really artistic and spontaneous during the fame era. Now she just comes of as a narcissist.

  14. Amanda Bynes December 20, 2013

    @Lovebird You suddenly become so obsessed to Queen Amanda. What kind of drugs did you take boo?

  15. Amanda Bynes December 20, 2013

    Yassss Queen Amanda’s rap album will slay all these basic ass b******.

  16. Amanda Bynes December 20, 2013

    T***** Caca looks like a poodle in that photo tbh. What an ugly creature like Thiefyonce who looks like a wild gorilla. #NoShade

  17. lovebird – Shade Gala WT, your fav is not safe (20TH – 23RD) December 20, 2013

    @Amanda Bynes

    Just tired of these basic whores getting attention. We need the real queen to put them into their place.

  18. ANTI-GARBAGE SINGING VOICES December 20, 2013


    I didnt know that Gaga was the one that did found out Art.

    Art was here in this world before Gaga and it will still be here after Gaga gone.

    Yoko Ono clearly forgot to take her pills. She’s clearly aint aight there above.

  19. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* December 20, 2013

    and By “ART” She means ?

  20. *ℙᏫℙ ℝᏫᎩAℒᎿᎩ* December 20, 2013


    @Senshi_NYNavy: THANK YOU buddy. 😀

    Lllol What A Liar! I Still See “Art” In:
    -Die Aintwood,
    -From Autumn To Ashes,
    -System Of A Down,
    -Kanye West,
    -Kelis(“Flesh Tone” Is One Of The Best Electro-Dance Album),
    -Lana Del Rey
    -Pink Floyd,

    Don’t Get Me Wrong I Still Love Gaga And I’ll Always Support Her Cause She Does Have Talent! But “Artpop” Is Her WORST Album!

    Yes “Artpop” Is A Good Album Compared To “Britney Jean”, “Prism” And “Bangerz” But It’s Nothing Compared To “Born To Die” Lyrically And Artiscally!

    Go Gaga You Can Do Better Than This!!!

  23. Suicide Blonde December 20, 2013

    @Prince Machiavel
    I agree with you 100%.

  24. JOHNVIDAL December 23, 2013

    Well she´s right in the sense that Gaga has been the most exciting thing in pop music since 2008, even if she´s declining commercially right now. She brought back the huge videos and she constantly releases music nobody else releases at the time. Artpop is a great album, like another comment said it is better than the other pop albums of the year. She has way more artistry in her than Beyonce, Rihanna, Katy or Milye, who are the ones who are supposed to be leading pop right now. So yeah, without her, mainstream music would be way less artistic.

    She needs a collabo with King Kim on there caz nobody checkin for her crazy ass!1!!!!!
