Marina Abramovic, ladies and gentlemen. Who remembers when she asked Lady Gaga to take part in the Abramovic Method which included, among other things, a naked Gaga spooning a massive stone? Well, apparently that was all part of a long-standing prank Abramovic has been playing on Gaga since she announced her artistic admiration for the singer a couple years back, giving hope to artists and people everywhere that there’s still a God.
According to satiric website The Global Edition:
Abramovic said that she decided to come clean to Gaga after watching her go through the “Abramovic method”, something she says she made up just to see if Gaga would really do it.
“When I said couple of years ago that I admire Lady Gaga, I thought that she and everyone else would get the sarcasm, but no. People actually believed me when I called her “the future of art”. So I said, what the heck, let’s just go with the flow and see what happens,” said Marina Abramovic.
Abramovic, who kept the singer in belief her music was “revolutionary and groundbreaking” for more than a year, says that the joke has gone too far.
“In the beginning it was funny, because she is so gullible. I tell her to do some crazy shit and she does it. Now I am afraid that she will do something dangerous if she continues to draw her inspiration from my words,” concludes Abramovic, adding that this was her best prank she pulled in years.
