Madonna Covered Elliott Smith for an Art Project

The new thing artists like doing now are performance pieces. Like Jay Z where he lip synced for “Picasso Baby.” Now there’s Madonna who did an art piece at a launch party yesterday for her new short called secretprojectrevolution.

The 17-minute short film kicks off Art for Freedom, an “online global initiative to further freedom of expression… to respond, address and protest persecution around the world.”

Madonna protested by covering Elliott Smith’s “Between the Bars.” Her version was a piece about “the prison industrial complex” instead of about love and alcohol. *Sniffs the air* Mm, that pretentious smell.

To repeat one of the YouTube comments, “Elliott Smith just killed himself twice.”

And here’s the entire secretprojectrevolution short if you’re interested.
