Ugh, it’s so annoying when people cover songs but don’t change anything. What is the point?! (Thanks for the tip, Jeremy.)
As bad as that is, it’s still not the worst thing she’s done to music.
She has a lifetime pass for Thin Ice and Kiss Kiss Kiss.
26 seconds is exactly how far I got.
For some reason I now have a distinct craving for a single plum, floating in perfume, served in a man’s hat.
This is going to be my ringtone. Sure, everybody will have to wait 2 minutes and 37 seconds for me to answer my calls, but it’ll be worth it. So worth it.
Welp, my ears just broke up with the rest of my head. She’s still got it!
She just found out that Sears has sold out the men’s Elmo Boxers. So sad.
It always surprised me when I learn that Yoko Ono is still alive. Even after she designed those hideous clothes like a week ago, I’m honestly surprised she’s still hanging in there today.
It’s good to know that we’re still living in the best possible universe.
I love her.
We talk a lot about how art is the worst. But sometimes it is the best!
No? Ok. Whatever.

i dont say this to be cold, but John Lennon died in 1980. i think it’s high time we as a collective whole decide to ignore Yoko. i mean, he was the only person to take her seriously. it’s been 32 years. let’s move on.
Wrong. Yoko Ono had an established art career well before she was married Lennon. The Ono backlash stemmed from a lot of racism and sexism among mostly white male Beatles fans in the 1970s.
Weirdly, it’s persisted even in these (presumably?) more enlightened times. How else to explain that her name is actually a synonym for a ‘female meddler/femme fatale’? Or the fact that people still blame her for the breakup of a band, despite that none of the members claims any such thing? Why would people want to keep believing that?
It’s fine if people dislike or hate her work, but she’s been portrayed for decades as some sort of fame-seeking hanger on, ignoring her long involvement in the avant-garde world post WWII.
Bitches, man, bitches.
mostly unrelated, but Dar Williams has a great song (at least I think it’s great) called “I Won’t Be Your Yoko Ono” that plays around with these misconceptions.
it includes the line “you don’t know a person like me / I could sell your songs to Nike”. genius!
what i said had nothing to do with the “beatles break up myth”. and I am well aware of her pre-John career. but had she not been “Mrs. John Lennon” she would be a minor footnote in history and largely ignored outside of the avant-garde art world. and that’s exactly my point. which has nothing to do with sexism and/or racism.
With or without John Lennon, she still would have made this video and it still would have been posted on youtube.
but would we be watching it here?
EGTA, you’re asking us to prove a negative.
Also, you are saying she wouldn’t have the same visibility if she had never met John Lennon? Uh, yeah. So … what? Most people wouldn’t know who she was. Others would. I fail to see how that’s an indictment of her?
Your original contention that no one took her seriously is just bullshit. It’s demonstrably not true.
And she wasn’t Mrs. John Lennon except to John Lennon fans. She was Yoko Ono the whole time.
“You’re the worst, Britta Perry”
After politely applauding, everyone in unison says “what the fuck was that? art is too subjective.”
I’m more of a moko jono fan http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=epuezoV0y7Y
Thank you for beating me to this. It is the best!
This is my favorite episode of the Powerpuff Girls! I miss that show so much.
this is just about how katy perry ACTUALLY sounds, to me
And that’s exactly why this is wonderful.
Who else has “to yoko a band” on their bucket list?
Someone: Yoko, don’t you ever change!
Yoko: *knowing smile*
I wonder if she ever feels like a plastic bag.
You should hear her version of “Sweet Caroline”.
This is a fake. She’s doing an installation at MOMA. Someone must have added the keyboard:
