Oh Yoko! You’ve done it again! Your partnership with Opening Ceremony is just the gift that keeps on giving! But seriously, as a male I do confess that I know nothing about makeup so I’m glad you came up with this video to show me and my boys that there are no limits to what we can do with makeup.
This tutorial video is threaded together by a poem that has amazing lines like, “When you see a rainbow in the sky/Breathe it in/And make your room into a rainbow,” and “Everything that sparkles will bring you a sparkling life/Sparkling eyes, sparkling belly button, sparkling legs.” And even some great advice like “Take rainbow pills – but with caution.” Did we mention the background music? You need to listen the background music.
But it’s not all fun and games as she gets seriously deep. Throw away that mirror, she says!
Yoko has you or your gents covered with make-up tips for daytime, evening and dawn with all three looks just as kooky and amazing as the next. Her oh-so wise advice will pair well with the crotch-grab Opening Ceremony fashion line, which she says was inspired by John Lennon’s body. TMI? TMI.
Oh, Yoko. You win all the awards!
When Yoko Ono collides with Katy Perry’s hit song “Firework,” it’s suddenly considered art. I can’t tell if Yoko is dying or having an orgasm but the reaction was mixed on YouTube:
The addition of Perry’s “Firework” to Yoko’s strangling cry of death was actually edited in AFTER her performance on as a joke. Yoko’s vocal performance was completed back in 2010 for MoMA’s Soprano and Wish Tree.

A 1968 interview with John Lennon and Yoko Ono that was never published in full has been unearthed, according to NME.com.
Keele University student Maurice Hindle, along with a friend, went to Lennon’s Surrey home to conduct the six-hour interview, which has now been published in the New Statesman.
Hindle explained that himself and his friend, who first contacted Lennon by writing to him through the Beatles Monthly fanzine, were picked up from Weybridge train station by the Beatle himself.
“Outside Weybridge station, a Mini Cooper with smoked-glass windows skidded to a halt, like something out of The Italian Job,” Hindle said. “In the driver’s seat was Lennon. We students crammed into the back of the Mini and John drove us up the bumpy private road that led to his house, Kenwood.”
Has Yoko Ono finally done right by Beatles fans? Tuesday marked what would have been John Lennon’s 67th birthday, and Ono celebrated her late husband’s life and contributions by erecting a statue in his honour.
Standing 65″ tall, the “Imagine Peace Tower” in Iceland was unveiled for all to see. A blue light beams from the top of the wishing-well’esque structure into the night sky, in an island in Reykjavik. The installation features the words “imagine peace” in 24 different languages.
“I hope the ‘Imagine Peace Tower’ will give light to the strong wishes of world peace from all corners of the planet and give encouragement, inspiration and a sense of solidarity in a world filled with fear and confusion,” said the 74 year old Ono to a news source.
The ‘Imagine Peace Tower’ will be lit up every year from the date of Lennon’s birthday until the date of his untimely death on Dec. 8, as well as New Year’s Eve and all throughout the first budding week of springtime.
Yoko Ono can’t forgive but she has no problem telling everybody else to.
Beatle John Lennon was murdered 26 years ago on Dec. 8, and Ono now wants the anniversary of her husband’s death to become a worldwide day of forgiveness.
Taking out full-page newspaper advertisements, Ono said, “Every year, let’s make December 8 the day to ask for forgiveness from those who suffered the insufferable
“To the people who have also lost loved ones without cause: forgive us for having been unable to stop the tragedy,” she continued.
Ono went on to thank well-wishers who write her every year on the anniversary of Lennon’sdeath but goes on to say that “As the widow of one who was killed by an act of violence, I don’t know if I am ready yet to forgive the one who pulled the trigger.
“I am sure all victims of violent crimes feel as I do. But healing is what is urgently needed now in the world.”
Obsessed Beatles fan Mark Chapman shot and killed Lennon, 40, outside his apartment in New York in 1980. Chapman is currently serving time in prison.
