Last month, J. Harvey posted about the further artistic expressions of Britney Spearscasso when he shared a Twatter video of her letting the spirits of the masters (Monet, Van Gogh, Bob Ross, etc…) run through her body to her fingers. While wearing the exact same paintin’ makin’ ensemble that Cézanne wore (shorty shorts, a baggy shirt that has been splattered with paint by her assistants to make it look like she’s been working hard and two push-up bras that suffocated her CheeCheetos), Britney gracefully painted a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. That painting is complete and is now hanging over the toilet in Robin Leach’s powder room, probably.
Brit Brit isn’t only a world-class lip syncher, a next-level arm waver and the modern-day Monet, but she’s also a saint with a Slim Jim-wrapped charitable heart. Brit, who recently opened a children’s cancer campus in Las Vegas, donated the painting to VegasCares, a charity organization benefiting the victims and first responders of the mass shooting at the Route 91 Harvest music festival. VegasCares held a charity concert in Las Vegas on Sunday night, and they also held an auction where Spearscasso’s beautiful work was auctioned off. People says that the artiste herself explained her painting in a video message to bidders during the auction:
“I’m so proud to call Vegas my second home and I’m pleased to participate in this Vegas Cares show. The flowers in my painting represent a new beginning, and it’s in that spirit that we move forward. All the proceeds from the winning bid go to Vegas Cares Memorial Fund. I appreciate your kindness and your generosity – I love you Vegas.”
Robin Leach was in charge of the auction, and he just couldn’t keep his hand down when Spearscasso’s art went up for auction. Sources (that are real and don’t only exist in my head) tell me that the world’s most prestigious museums from the Louvre to the MET got into a bidding war, but Robin Leach ended up as the winner. Robin’s bid of $10,000 won him the piece. Dlisted’s team of fact checkers (aka my dog) are working hard fact checking another story right now (aka sleeping), but I’ll eventually get them to fact check this story. Because I’m pretty sure Robin’s winning bid was really $100,000,000. Getting a Spearscasso original for $10,000 should be a crime!
Here’s the beautiful piece of work that looks like a sick Care Bear’s colonoscopy scan, because it’s filled with flowers, turds and pretty purple worms.
I need to call my sister STAT and tell her to look to see if she’s still got her early-90s acid-washed jean jacket with a puffy paint design on the back of it. Because her jacket’s puffy paint design looked just like that painting. If she finds that jacket, she can put it on, walk around with pride and lie to everyone by telling them she’s wearing a Spearscasso original!
