22Madonna and Katy Perry Are Doing an “Art Project” Together

madonna katy perry

Apparently there’s some competition going on called Art for Freedom in which the artist who manages to impress Madonna and Katy Perry the most will win $10,000 – not for themselves, but for a non-profit organization of their choice. If that sounds a little wacky to you – the pairing, the concept, any of it – then you’re not alone. While most professional artists are aiming to enter competitions to earn money for themselves, to keep a roof over their head while they continue trying to make art for a living, this one is looking for anyone who can pick up a pencil and draw or write a poem or anything else, regardless of experience. Also, the focus is on human rights. And your judges are Madonna and Katy Perry. Let that last part sink in.

Madonna chose Katy to “guest curate” the competition, which is part of the ‘Material Girl’ singer’s Freedom Project organization. Here’s the full scoop from Billboard:

Madonna has tapped Katy Perry as guest curator for Art for Freedom, her online public art project that encourages artists to submit videos, music, poetry and photographs to express their take on freedom.

Over the course of this month, Perry will work with Madonna to select an artist “whose creative expression demonstrates a unique view of the fight for human rights,” according to a press release.

“I am so fortunate to have the freedom to express myself through music,” said Katy Perry. ”Now I’m calling all of my incredibly creative KatyCats to use their talent to show Madonna and me how they express their freedom. I believe that 2014 can be a year of great social change. Together we can all stand up for Human Rights. Join the conversation, and let your art be your voice.”

LOLLLL. I love the idea of a KatyCat winning this competition. You know I love Katy Perry, but I wouldn’t say the fans who stan for her are human rights activists with brilliant artistic ability, to be honest. That’s not nice of me to say, I know, and maybe I’ll be proven wrong when this whole thing is over. This isn’t a Katy Perry competition, it’s an art competition about human rights with a prize to be given to a non-profit. Let’s widen the scope, here, girl.

I’m interested in the reasons behind Madonna picking Katy to run this. I’m not being funny at all, I think Katy is fantastic, I just would imagine she’d pick an art critic or someone on the board of the Getty museum or something, you know?

In any case, I’d much rather Madonna be spending her time on projects like this than putting on a thong for Terry Richardson. I’ll take it.
