If you’ve been under a rock all this week – sucks for you! 2013’s Art Basel // Miami Beach wraps in just a little while. So far Über MUSIC lovers -- Pharrell, Diddy and Lady Gaga have all played an integral role in making this year’s event more polarizing than ever before.
Just in one week, Miami Beach has been plummeted with not only entertainers and their greedy publicists looking for the next top-tweeted venues to raid; but young entrepreneurs, models, buyers, clothing-zars and fashion banes alike…most definitely took note from last year’s ABMB success.
It’s almost as if urban-pop culture won’t take a day-off from work to allow metaphysical artistry to take the forefront of all things creative. Ummm Hmmm!! #PicassoBaby
Rap artist, Kendrick Lamar took a detour from his duties via Kanye West’s Yeezus Tour to perform at a chic yet private event at MOCA earlier this week. Not much of a surprise here, Kanye West also made an extraordinary ABMB appearance side-by-side with fiancée and E! Entertainment’s cash-cow, Kim Kardashian.
Most notably, Lady Gaga and her ties to the art world via ABMB helped raise funds for her Born This Way: Foundation to empower youth in accepting themselves while creating a safe community and inspiring talented individuals.
More art-enthused celebs including Songwriter / Producer Rico Love, Questlove of The Roots and many more had to get a piece of that avant-garde Art Basel life or at least an after-party! [Laughs]
