MOMENTS | Mash-up: Listen to the Leaked Lady Gaga x Kendrick Lamar Collaboration “PARTYNAUSEOUS”

We’ve curated the best of digital age-inspired creativity—from user-generated content, mash-ups, and remixes to collaborations between multi-disciplined makers.

To be honest, we kind of forgot about 2012’s much hyped but never released Lady Gaga and Kendrick Lamar collaborationPARTYNAUSEOUS.” The song was supposed to appear on Lamar’s critically acclaimed good kid, m.A.A.d. city but was scrapped from the record due to creative differences. It should be noted, however, that Gaga also stated that while she “was not willing to compromise musically to the changes his team was making to [her] music,” the axed song was in no way Lamar’s fault. She was apparently not entirely displeased with the end result, as she repurposed some of the non-Kendrick Lamar parts for an interlude during her ARTPOP tour. Now that the leaked version has popped up, there are two new verses from Lamar, bringing a more subdued element to Gaga’s dance/rave vibe.

MAKER | Linder Sterling: Collage x Punk x Fashion x Performance Art

A celebration of the creatives who remix their craft in thought-provoking new ways. 

Inspired by the Dada movement and unhappy with 1976 North England society, artist Linder Sterling’s collages are made of cutouts from pornography and advertising—a visual commentary on identity, sexuality, fashion and society.
A well-known figure of Manchester’s punk and post-punk scene, Sterling’s provocative sleeve for Orgasm Addict by Buzzcocks in 1977 is one of her most famous works. Collage was crucial to punk because as Sterling puts it, “it was about making sense of the world. With collage, you make things wrong to make them right”.
