ELIJAH BLUE’S ART IS INSPIRED BY THE INEXPLICABLE WORLD OF CELEBRITY

We were surprised to hear that Cher’s son Elijah Blue had evolved from making music with his band “Deadsy” to creating modern art. His famous family (Cher, who he’s starting to resemble, and Chaz) showed up at his most recent gallery show in Malibu, but we decided to examine his art. Elijah specializes in commenting on “the celebrity condition.” In the photo above he’s featured with his subtle painting called “Ivory Tower” which was first shown at the Kantor Gallery. The repeated logos of Ivory Soap and Tower Records are the kind you see behind famous people when they’re photographed at all Hollywood events – emphasizing the link between commerce and celebrity. Elijah describes the piece as “about people who are isolated, breathing rarified air, don’t have to deal with the realities of the world. This is the common outcome of celebrity.” He went on to say “I watch Jersey Shore too and I love it- I am not above any of this, I’m just commenting on it.”

    I think he’s more resembling his dad Greg Allman. I don’t see Cher in either of her kids.
    As for his “art”…well Warhol already DID this, so I wouldn’t call it art, just a lame copy or a mae idea. It wasn’t that cool the FIRST time around it just was hip because everyone saw Warhol as some kind of trendsetting wunderkind. It was a whole different world back then tho, and the magic of those days is long gone. You can’t ring the same bell twice and expect the same results. Maybe Blue is too young to grasp that, but Cjer should know. Perhaps he just won’t listen to her, as Chaz doesn’t either. Must be sad for her having TWO kids who don’t seem interested in your influence.

    i definitely see Cher in his face but if this is ART I am Picasso
    give me a break….. if he did not have famous parents he would not have a show..if that is talent well…… real talent would be his sister Chasity losing about 200 pounds….the more she thinks she is a man the fatter she gets. she needs constant and hard therapy. i don’t give a crap what anyone says..she is messed up.

    TO: PitBullLover…I agree she is messed up.

    So is this website which apparently is still down, because ever since the subject of Liza Minnelli was put on, the rest of the stuff does not appear. Where is the web-master?

    PS: After Elijah Blue, and then Rielle Hunter, there is Liza Minnelli. On the Liza, there is no place to click to put in a comment. At least that’s the way it is on my computer. What’s the prob?

    I too see a great deal of Cher in Elijah. And his look and mannerism in that photo is all Cher. Neither Greg nor Sonny were all that good looking, so it is surprising that even one of Cher’s kids should end up attractive. That itself is a sign he takes after his mother.

    Just another spoiled celebrity spawn who never held down a real job with lots of time on his hands. How the hell is that art? It’s just a large advertisement. Like he gets a hard on for Ivory……..

    Sebastian, actually I thought Sonny, when he and Cher first started out, was quite cute, and I thought Cher was at her best looks-wise at that same point when she and Sonny were just starting, when they both had their real faces, before any work was done on them. His hair was a bit extreme but that was the style for a singer of his type back then too. Didn’t dig the fake fur vest tho, but HE was a doll, and I believe a whole lot of women were swooning over him back then.

    sperm slickers so WEST HOLLYWOOD-FAGGOTS inspired him too?

    I can’t call her anything but chastity. She’ll never be a real man and God don’t make mistakes. People make mistakes and think there God. Being Cher would be hell that’s why you seldom see her.

    I find Elijah’s art interesting and appealing. As for Chaz, it’s cliche, but until you’ve walked a mile in someone’s shoes, you can’t possibly pretend to know what you’re talking about. I don’t envy the personal challenges Chaz has been dealing with, and have only compassion and well wishes.

    I don’t get it. For goodness sakes, this isn’t art. It really ticks me off to think that people stopped and looked at his “work ” and made positive comments about it. Somebody give the kid a real job.

  12. By SebastianCanada

    Reta, yeah, I was a bit flippant and severe. Sonny and Cher WERE a cute couple, and Chastity was a beautiful little girl. And she was very attractive until her later twenties, when she started bloating. Chastity took after both parents. Judging from that picture Elijah is all Cher – he looks not just like her, but also her sister and mother.

    Anyone else see a whole lot of Warhol in his art???

  14. By Reta
    On July 8, 2010 at

    Joanie, I ALREADY SAID It was a Warhol copy, so I wouldn’t call it art. Warhol did it FIRST and BETTER. There is no copying the master, and Blue should be embarrassed to even TRY to concoct this stuff and put it out there. I’d be SOOOOO humiliated!

    For some reason where it has View More, I thought it would show more of his work, but can only get this one picture. The great Ivory Soap picture! HA! total CRAP, and if he didn’t have well known parents NOBODY would ever look at this so called art… what a joke

    It’s not visually appealing but it’s clever.

    It is good to do something that feels good and gives you joy and being Cher son is going to open the doors for you down the road and having fun and rocking it out is real joy.
