Part 3: Looked at Frida's artwork and fashion through the eyes of today's pop culture and appreciated the legacy she left for artists who came after her. Lady Gaga's life seems eccentric like Frida's and we discussed how Frida paved the way for artists like Lady Gaga to live their lives "out loud".
