David Byrne backtracked on his blog about his statement that Biesenbach told him that Lady Gaga wasn’t an artist … but the reason doesn’t seem clear:
“In that entry I quoted a MoMA curator without fact checking or asking permission — I’m learning journalism the hard way. Klaus Biesenbach wrote, correcting me, ‘Of course Lady Gaga is an artist.’ He also wrote that he hopes to work with her someday.”
So … Biesenbach didn’t say that Gaga wasn’t an artist or is he having second thoughts? Did the Haus of Gaga get to him? So many questions but the bigger question is: Is Lady Gaga a GOOD or GREAT artist?
