Runners discover giant Lady Gaga mural overlooking L.A.
HollywoodNews.com: Residents of the Hollywood Hills out for their morning run Friday morning were surprised to discover something not normally on their path.
According to the LA Times, a 30’x30′ mural of Lady Gaga was found on the top of a hill in Runyon Canyon, overlooking Los Angeles. The La Times was sent a picture of the mural—which portrays Lady Gaga as Christ, a crown of thorns resting on her blonde locks and blood dripping down her shoulders—from a runner who took time to admire the artwork.
Later in the day, the LA Times reported that the artist Castro took credit for the mural, describing his piece in a press release to the newspaper: “Hollywood, where stars are worshipped today, just to be crucified tomorrow. The idea behind the painting goes beyond Gaga and way beyond religion.”
The unveiling of the mural coincided with the release of Lady Gaga’s newest single “Born This Way,” which hit iTunes and airwaves at 6 a.m. Friday morning.
