Halloween Special: Lala’s Breast Implant Haunted. Needs Removal.

29 Oct
Lala Drona Breast Implant Ghost

Hauntings take place in houses…Sometimes objects can even house dark spirits or entities.  On Friday the 23rd of October, Lala Drona announced that she would be having surgery to remove her left breast implant and undergo a mastectomy.  To the press, Lala Drona released a statement saying:

“It has been 16 years since my operation to correct my left-breast agenesis.  When I was 15 years old, the doctors thought it was best to augment the left breast in order to match the right breast which developed.  I have no regrets.  However, the breast implant is too old, and I am left with a choice:  to undergo the same operation…or to remove the breast implant and reduce the right breast to match it.  I choose the ladder.”

Lala Drona continued on to explain why.  She talked about her research into the health effects of silicone in the body, and the inevitability to be forced to have another surgery in order to replace the implants once again.  She mentioned the maintenance of having to see doctors every year to survey the implants in case of a rupture.

“I don’t want a life framed by my breasts.  I want to be free, and I’m willing to give up the right one if it means I can move on, and live a healthier life.”

Although the speech was moving, journalists of the L.D. Times decided to dig further.  They found that Lala Drona was using this story to cover up something much more sinister.

Strange and violent events began to take place around Paris.  A woman on a subway train, stopped at station Pont Marie, scratched her face until the bone was exposed.  She kept saying, “I don’t want to be pretty anymore.”  

Then, near the Cite des Arts, where Lala Drona had her last exhibition, a man was found smashing the bottom part of his legs with a large rock of concrete.  His legs were already quite thin, so it didn’t take much to remove all the flesh.  Rumors said that he kept repeating: “I can’t get my calf muscles to grow.”

The final event had taken place in a bus.  A woman broke a window abruptly, and used a glass shard to cut the fat off of her stomach, repeating: “They say, take it off!”  She was wrestled to the ground, and luckily, she survived.

Investigative journalists found that all of these events had one thing in common.  Lala was there.  She had been walking near the Cite des Arts, when the man began smashing his legs with a rock of concrete.  Below Lala walking on the street, the subway train containing the woman who scratched her face to the bone had stopped at station Pont Marie.  The bus with the woman who tried to cut off the fat from her belly had also stopped nearby.

When confronted by journalists regarding the bizarre coincidences, she allowed her partner Drone No.1 to come clean for her.  He told the crowd that recently they had found that Lala Drona’s breast implant was haunted, and that although they would not be able to disclose the means in which they would have to neutralize the  threat, they would be taking care of it, and that everything would be handled by November 1st.

The process or procedure the Drones and Lala would take to relieve her body of the haunting… that, we do not know.  However, we do know that her medical operation is not scheduled until February 2021.  This means that the Lala will have to find a way to either live with the dangerous spirits inside the implant, or find a way to calm them.  One way or another, she will have to house them, in her chest, through the winter.

Art meets Big Data: Lala joins competitors

3 Nov
Big Data meets Art conversion rates creativity Lala Drona Based on a Fact

Ever since Lala Drona’s groundbreaking (albeit controversial) work with Muse inspiration extraction, a wide range of Muse Services have continued to pop up.  Her invention of the industry has birthed innovations in Artist-Muse services and has revolutionised the way we think about inspiration, redefining the roles artists/muses play within the act of creation.  Thanks to these developments, we can find more that 1000 Artist-Muse/Inspiration services spread across Western Europe and the Eastern United States today.

Since the genesis of the industry, Lala Drona has decided to branch out.  Her investment in her European Art tour has left her strapped for cash, and it couldn’t have come at a worse time.  Lala Drona’s next art project with Lala Laboratories is bigger than ever.  Sources say that in order to make some extra cash, Lala Drona is taking on a side-hustle, offering her expertise to other muse services. 

Big Data meets Art conversion rates creativity service AMServices Lala Drona Based on a Fact

She has been spotted on 3 different occasions with higher-ups from the company AMServices (Artist-Muse Services), a service which enables artists to test out their Muse’s ideas on mass audiences in an online system.  In this system, artists are able to test their muse’s ideas, tweak them, and test them again.  The system keeps track of every variation of the idea, and lets the artist test all the versions simultaneously in real time.  The artist can compare each version of the idea by diverting audiences to each one, and observing how each performs.  By doing this, the artist can select the highest performing version of the idea and use that one for creation.

AMServices has been criticised by many in the art world, as many find it to be “Big Brotheresque,” some having described the service as “the art world meets Big Data.”  Even Lala herself has accused the service of “taking the soul out of creation by commercialising ideas and adapting them to a mass audience…all in the aim of making more money.” 

Big Data meets Art conversion rates on ideas and creativity Lala Drona Based on a Fact

Despite all of this, AMServices sticks to their vision of “data as a tool,” denying intentions to commercialise or “main-stream” ideas.  AMServices Founder Anita DeBlanca made a statement in 2017 saying “We provide data services.  What our clients decide to do with that data is their choice.”

The verdict is still out regarding Lala’s updated views on AMServices, and sources have not been able to confirm what Lala Drona’s involvement with the company will be.  Either way, this unexpected move has the art world on the edge of their seats, anticipating future innovations expected to come from this collaboration.

Spotted: Lala in Paris and on Crutches

12 Jul
Lala Drona spotted in Paris on crutches wearing winter 2018 OAMC and Nike Ambush collaboration sneakers

Despite plans to return in August 2019, journalists have recently spotted Lala Drona on the streets of Paris sporting a new look. Ms. Drona has left her hair bleach bottles behind, and has returned to an auburn look this summer.  Accompanying her winter 2018 OAMC vest (menswear), she sported 2019 Nike-Ambush collaboration sneakers, topped off with her iconic round sunglasses by Gentle Monsters.  Previously, Lala Drona had never been caught wearing designer clothes on the streets of Paris…which begs the question: What’s with this new look?

Fashion specialists speculate that Lala’s new style reflects her growing financial success in the art world. Lala Drona can simply afford to wear the pieces that she admires, and therefore does. Another theory has Lala Drona and these brands in cahoots, suspecting a secret endorsement deal. Whatever the case, the accessories which intrigued and concerned journalists most were the crutches which support her.

Lala Drona refused to comment when approached on the street, but journalists presume her injury was cause for her return.  Our team followed up on the story and traced back Lala Drona’s steps from her European voyage. Having stopped in Copenhagen on her way to Paris, we met up with passenger assistance.  Lala Drona, had checked out a wheelchair, and employee Emil Hansen was selected to help transport her to her terminal and airplane.  “She was friendly, and we made casual conversation.  She told me that she injured her knee painting.”

Emil Hansen failed to reveal details regarding the story, leaving journalists and fans in the dark regarding her hard core painting methods.  However, one thing is certain. The European Tour has come to an early end.  Lithuania was the last stop on Lala Drona’s year-long tour, and now she is expected to settle in Paris once again.  

Drone Kesabe breaks routine with “Creatures of Habit”

17 May

Lala Drona was expected to perform at Paris Lit Up’s magazine release party last week. Instead, Drone Kesabe, an assistant to Lala Drona, was sent to stand in for Lala in her absence.

Once called to the stage, Drone Kesabe explained to the audience that Lala Drona had been held up during her art research. She stated that Lala Drona had been conducting art experiments to find the perfect colour, a color too strong for the human eye, a deadly color: “…Essentially a colour that kills” she said. Lala Drona and her team had some sort of breakthrough, and so she was unable to come to the event.

Drone Kesabe then began to read Lala’s poem to the audience in a low and airy voice:

(Creature of Habit)

These creatures look for the familiar in the unfamiliar. Tell me, why do you put on shoes?  Only to walk with blind feet.  You process a new place based on past processes.  The past with its conquering mentality—in your mind—time cannibalizes itself, past taking present.  Is there a reason you can only see back in time, but not forward?  Creatures of habit, only see what they know, and this is how I come to you “th-th-th-th-th-th.”

Repetition, monotony, boredom, commitment, dedication, loyalty, rigor: you play me over and over, conjuring my face in every note of that song—the song that was playing when the Thing happened.

 I’ll stay with you and tell you what to do, so the Thing doesn’t happen again, you think—

–And I let you know that your instincts are shit, listen to me, I was there, and I’ll keep you safe. 

Creatures of habit, based on a fact, based on a television, based on a story…this only serves to take me with you—in your mind—. 

Perched on your back making nests of knots in your shoulders, making my way to your belly—Let me stay here a bit while you recognize the pattern of that familiar ceiling in the walls of this unfamiliar venue.  The same pattern of where the Thing happened, when you had no control, I came, that’s where we met the first time.

Watch the new patterns, registered by old ones, process, tilt you head back further, further, thaaat’s it. “th-th-th-th-th” stop breathing now because the past doesn’t breathe, and we never left that moment—in your mind—I’m here with you, when no one else will be.  And I’ll never leave you, not if you keep looking…looking for our familiar in the unfamiliar.  Creature of habit. 

Poem “Creatures of Habit” by Lala Drona © 2019

The launch party went off without a hitch while artists, poets and creative-types mixed and popped off celebratory champagne. As for the work Lala Drona is developing behind the scenes, our investigative journalists haven’t seemed to be able to get beyond Drone Kesabe’s statement at the PLU launch party.

Based on a Fact caught up with art trend expert Valerie Cogie who weighed in on the situation. “If we take a look at Lala Drona’s paintings, it’s quite obvious that she’s chosen to express through the grayscale. As stated in previous interviews, this was due to her reaction to traveling the world. She stopped seeing the world in binary oppositions: black/white, right/wrong… and started paying more attention to the in-betweens…the grays. Perhaps, she has reached a point where she wants to start incorporating colour into her painting universe. I’d rather not speculate further on the psychological implications of this.”

Lala goes blonde: show in the Marais–Paris

Experiment Exposed: The many faces

5 Jul

Muse Experiment ExposedScreaming.  Laughing.  Machines whirring, and Lala’s face appearing on walls.  How do you feel about Lala in this current moment? What do you hear in this current moment?  What do you see in this current moment?

These were three questions asked after a reported muse experiment took place in Lala Drona’s art laboratory.  Just two weeks after the “Drones gone rogue” scandal, Drone Jack and Drone Ember release a shocking account of one of the muse experiments taking place in the Lala Laboratory.  Screen Shot 2017-07-05 at 06.29.33.pngDrone Ember recounts being “called upon” for one of Lala Drona’s art experiments.  After being paired up with another Drone (Drone Jack, whom opens the video with a speech) the two are led into the deepest rooms of the art laboratory.   Here, the two Drones aid in Lala’s strange inspiration extraction tactics.


This story certainly gives us much desired information about the inner workings of the laboratory and its experiments.  Drone EmberHowever, what type of inspiration extracted from the experiment, and how Lala will apply it to her art pieces has yet to be revealed.  Lala’s followers wait with anticipation for the release of the art piece inspired by this experiment, in order to gain more insight to the artist’s process, and to the inner workings of the experiments.

Thank you to Drone Jack and Drone Ember for their bravery and candor.

When the cat’s away, the mice will play!

18 Jun

Lala Drona’s departure from Paris to Beijing marks the third occasion in which she has left a community of Drones behind.  Ms. Drona leaves each group of Drones with a specific set of instructions and regulations to follow while conducting their art and muse experiments.   However, without much oversight, it was just a matter of time before the Drones would start to take over.

In the name of art, two Drones have gone rogue, continuing their research and conducting art experiments unsanctioned by the Lala.  Drone Fletcher and Drone Tinas have implicated themselves in an online confession and apology, revealing the circumstances of their digression.

Has Lala lost control over her Drone franchises?  Will this video spark a trend in Drone digression?  Lala has got her hands quite full recruiting Eastern Drones in Beijing…will she lose control over her Western partners?

LEAKED: Ms. Drona’s Glamour Macabre

19 Mar

gray series.png

Over the past week, a fog of grey has been hovering over art media websites, revealing a series of achromatic paintings.  Lala Drona’s latest work, what some journalists are calling “Glamour Macabre” was leaked, and has taken the internet by storm.

Before her departure to Beijing, China, Lala Drona put on a private exhibition with selected guests from the art world.  The exhibition was by appointment at the art factory Le Lavoir, and despite prohibiting the use of smart phones and cameras, photos of her work were leaked.

The photos were leaked without description, therefore the titles and sizes of the pieces still remain unknown.  One thing that is apparent is that Ms. Drona has decided to dive into shades of grey.  We first saw this choice of color in her triptych Je suis la fin qui justifie les moyens (I am the end that justifies the means) back in 2015 during the collective exhibition Je suis…   Color psychology theorises that grey is “being neither black nor white, it is the transition between two non-colors.”  Perhaps the color gray represents a transition in her work.
There may be negative consequences to the leak as many of the pieces were meant to be kept secret before her next public exhibition. Now, Lala Drona may have got herself into hot water with her Chinese investors.

In other news, Lala Drona has opened Drone Video submissions, so if you’re interested in becoming a Drone, please visit:  https://www.facebook.com/events/388488554868772/?notif_t=plan_reminder&notif_id=1489931961293145

Lala’s Latest Performance Art

19 Feb

f1020020

Photos by Yegan Mazandarani (Agence Sauvage)

Lala has sent shockwaves through internet video platforms after the release of her video titled “Lala and Drone #1’s Latest Performance.” Despite media pressure, she continues to plea the fifth when asked to comment on the performance’s legitimacy.

f1000022The video begins with photographer Yegan Mazandarani shooting Lala Drona and Drone #1 in their classic black Drone attire and sunglasses. An instrumental version of “We found love” plays in the background as the camera follows the frantic scene into Paris’ Town Hall.  For the main event of the performance, Lala Drona and Drone #1, stand in front of the French authorities in order to merge their assets and forge an alliance in legal matrimony.  After a quick ceremony (and a very convincing kiss) the couple move on to the second act of the performance: signing the documents that legalize their union.  Next, the couple exit their performance to the song “Young, wild and free.”

But did they really get legally married?  As we recall, Drone #1 and Lala Drona hf1020018ave a rocky past.  His breach in Drone Code resulted in his exile from the Lala World,
followed by the gruesome Drone-Muse experiment which inspired Lala Drona’s tryptic Je suis la fin qui justifie les moyens (I am the end that justifies the means).  Since then, Drone #1 underwent a new Drone Reprogramming Procedure, and hasn’t left Lala’s side ever since.  Perhaps Lala has forgiven Drone #1, and this alliance is a reconciliation of all past indiscretions?  This could be the reason why the song “I want you back” by Micheal Jackson also plays in the video.

No sources have come forward in order to debunk the supposed marriage. However, another possibility could be that Lala Drona and Drone #1 legitimately married for art’s sake.  Perhaps the duo is aligning in order to critique the traditional act of marriage as “performance.”

Journalists continue to look for answers, however the officials at Town Hall will not speak to whether or not the wedding was legitimate.  It is possible that Lala could have pulled a few strings in order to create some cheap internet buzz.  Sooner or later, the truth will reveal itself.

Tarot Reads DEATH: Lala plans funeral arrangement.

11 Aug

title photo funeral plans-001Lala Drona has reported trouble sleeping and vivid nightmares during her spiritual walkabout through the Western United States.  Many dreams end in her death, or the death of another at her own hand.

DSC_0754.JPGWhile perusing along the rusted streets of Sedona, Arizona, Lala Drona stumbled upon a very familiar looking building.  A sudden rush of déjà vu came over her.  The font of the letters on the glass, and the rusted color on the exterior of the shop called to her.  Lala’s dream the night before involved a psychic warning her of imminent death, and the shop in front of her was the spitting image of the shop in her dream.
Tarot readingLala entered and smelled the same nagchampa lavender candle that burned in the dream the night before. She sat on the paisley printed cushions in the room and waited as Madame Bonnie, the same psychic from her dream entered into the room.  Reliving the scene, Lala followed her into a hidden room in the back.

Lala answered Madame Bonnie’s question before she had time to answer it.  “Yes, this is my first tarot reading,” she said.
Madame Bonnie looked into Lala’s eyes and squinted. “You are a very sensitive person, aren’t you?  Perhaps some psychic abilities of your own?”  Madame Bonnie took Lala’s hand and read her past life.  “You were a creative…a very sensitive and spiritual woman in your past life.  Your ideas were unusual but intelligent.  There were many people around you that were jealous, and you died early on because of this…somewhere in your twenties.  You are still this woman today, but today people are much more accepting of your ideas.  This is the time you were meant to live in, so now you are living out the life she didn’t get the chance to.”

Madame Bonnie asked Lala to shuffle the cards, and laid them down on the table in a celtic cross fashion.  Lala anticipated the death card.  As soon as Madame Bonnie laid it down, she said, “Are you dealing with death at the moment, or anything resembling death?”Tarot guide

Lala wanted to tell Madame Bonnie of how she lived her life…of how she intentionally confronted death daily, how she called upon death  everyday in order to live life well.  To appreciate the things she had and to extract drive from it.  However, Lala responded, “No.”
“Many people fear the death card, but it can be a very positive card.  It signifies change, and in your case an extreme change in your career…the death of one thing and the birth of another.  I read that you will soon receive the type of recognition that you have been searching for in your career.”  Lala thought of her projects, the book she’d been writing and her new art piece to be released in an exhibition in October.

Immediately after, Lala called a video
meeting with several Drones and Muses to plan her funeral arrangements.  An open casket funeral displaying the body of the artist covered in flowers, only the breasts and face exposed.  As the artist has vowed to only show her breasts in her paintings, she has denied several prominent photographers her image.  The funeral will be the sole moment in the artist’s life that the public will see her breasts “dans la vie réelle.”  The installation is what Lala Drona likes to call her “final piece.”
Lala explained the piece to Based On a Fact:
“I’m not planning on going anywhere now, but I would like my life’s work to finish with something beautiful and intentional.  As Marina Abramovic said You cannot choreograph death, but you can choreograph your funeral.”
