Miley Cyrus actually is a pothead (Like Kelly said "We thought Salvia was your problem, Miley"), Jason Mecier reminds us there are much worse things she could be doing. The San Francisco based artist's Pill Portraits show us examples of celebrities who've blazed the trail of bad behavior long before Miley. Dealing only in mosaic portraits, Mecier creates intricately detailed celebrity mosaics using trash, candy, beans, lighters, dead mice, and other random junk. His most recent portraits featuring Courtney Love, Heath Ledger, Amy Winehouse, Kelly Osbourne and Michael Jackson are solely made out of pills. These pieces serve as sad (yet colorful) reminders that some celebrities make it out of drug addiction, but others die trying. If Miley knows what's good for her, like her career, she'll keep it mostly PG. See Jason Mecier's celebrity Pill Portraits below.
tchmo, touches on this theme with his new mixed-media series,“Lost Children”, featuring Dana Plato, Gary Coleman, River Phoenix and Corey Haim. Each piece shows a photo of the child star in their prime, faces obscured by bright splotches of clouds and other random shapes--implying they have passed into some obscure realm, never to return. See tchmo’s Lost Children series below.
French design team, Nous Sommes, turn pop culture idols into iconography for your neck. Their 6 piece collection includes busts of Terry Richardson, Karl Lagerfeld, Lady Gaga, Spike Lee, Grace Jones and Michael Jackson. Perhaps un-ironically, Nous Sommes has a solid following in the celebrity scene. Their tumblr, blogspot and facebook page are frequently updated with photos of famous faces showing off the famous face around their neck. The tatted-up jewelers even crusaded from Paris to NYC to get a shot of Terry wearing Terry. Check out the snapshots below, including Teyana Taylor posing for the new Nous Sommes lookbook.
HEARTY TWITTER for more information. 1. Most ridiculous request you've gotten while djing? Can you play some Michael Jackson? While "PYT" was playing. Or "can you play that song that goes da da da da da." 2. Best dance move during your set? However your god self is instructing you to move... YouTube search "holy ghost baptist dancing." 3. Most embarrassing moment you've witnessed djing? I've had plenty. It always sucks when the sound goes out or somebody accidentally pulls the plug and everybody thinks the DJ did it. 4. If_____ started djing you'd quit? An animated octopus. How you gonna out-DJ a dude with eight arms? 5. Biggest "no no" song for a dj to play? Play what you want. I'm sure there's a situation for any song to be played. Bardot Hollywood 1732 Vine St, Hollywood, CA 9pm - late
