Banksy Prints Prove Popular With Celebrities

Work by graffiti artist Banksy has become so popular that celebrities regularly buy originals and prints.

Gallery owner Steve Lazarides told the Independent that the pop star already had an in-depth knowledge of Banksy prints and originals and knew exactly what sort of artwork she wanted to buy.

A friend of Aguilera said the musician would prize the Queen Victoria picture featuring the monarch in a lesbian pose with a prostitute and hang it in her living room.

“She’s been a huge fan of Banksy for months and was desperate to get her hands on some of his artwork,” they told the paper.

Banksy reportedly created the controversial piece in response to the fact that Queen Victoria famously refused to pass a law outlawing lesbianism as she refused to believe such things existed.

Hollywood mega-couple Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are amassing a growing collection of Banksy work having spent in excess of 1 million at a contemporary art auction in London in 2007.

Brangelina also controversially bought a Banksy painting of Michael Jackson which showed the King of Pop standing in the doorway of a cottage attempting to coax a young boy and girl into his house with sweets.

Brad Pitt told the Times at an exhibition in America that he becoming a fan of Banksy after discovering examples of his work through the media.

He said: “I think that this guy is really on to something. I first heard about him a year or so ago I saw something about him in a magazine.”

Keanu Reeves, Meg White and Jude Law are just some of the famous faces who have also been spotted viewing Banksy prints and originals at exhibitions in Hollywood, Los Angeles.

Mr Lazarides said that Banksy prints and originals are popular with celebrities because they prefer contemporary art to classical masterpieces.

He told the Times: “They’ve got money and they don’t particularly want to spend it on a Picasso – they want to buy something that relates to their lives, their time and their culture.”

Banksy has famously painted subversive graffiti in places such as London Zoo, the British Museum and the wall dividing the West Bank in Israel.

Survey Women Aspire To Beautiful Lives

Can a woman become more beautiful as the result of the way she lives her life?

A recent Bali intimate apparel survey says yes. Beauty, apparently, does shine from within, reflecting self-acceptance, self-confidence and contentment with a life well lived.

The survey showed that most women feel beauty has more to do with the way a woman lives her life than about any desirable physical features. An overwhelming 93 percent of the women responding to the survey said they’d rather live a beautiful life than be born beautiful.

Self-confidence is a very important part of being beautiful. More than three-fourths of women feel that beauty comes most often from self-acceptance.

It’s a feeling as well as a look; it’s having confidence in everything you do and everything you wear.

Four out of five women feel beautiful at least some of the time, according to the survey.

Those women say they feel that way most often because they’ve been told they are beautiful, because they like how they look or because they’re happy with the way they live their life.

Younger women ages 18 to 34 are most likely to feel beautiful because someone told them they were and they like how they look, while older women (35+) feel beautiful because of how they live their life.

When asked which everyday activity made them feel most beautiful, women’s top three responses were: romantic moments with their spouse or significant other, laughing and doing a favor for a friend. In addition:

92 percent of survey respondents believe women put too much emphasis on being physically beautiful;
