It’s an addictive thing, fame, and when it no longer need have any connection to talent, it can essay on a journey by ship available for the begging.
Manson discovered, though, yesterday’s subversion is today’s shtick. We’ll spare you the pictures. My little girl is so empowered. Sulkowicz became a global celebrity three years ago by turning an almost certainly false accusation of rape into a brainless performance-art project in which she dragged a mattress around campus. She kept it up all the way to her graduation ceremony, after which she promptly released a pornographic sex tape. How, then, to retain the exhilaration of being in the public eye? Earlier this year, she pretended to be a therapist at a Philadelphia gallery, where she chatted with patrons for 30-minute sessions and called the effort The Healing Touch Integral Wellness Center.

What good is art hung on the wall of a sinking ship? It is not untrue that chairs have seats and that rain falls downward. Many poets write truths of this sort.
