Quote 1: “Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”
Reflection: Marilyn Monroe is reversing stereotypes and showing people that you don’t have to conform to society to be beautiful or a genius. In her own way she is proving that you don’t have to be what others expect you to be in order to be happy or successful you just have to be okay with yourself and be comfortable with expressing who you are.
Quote 1: “I’m not the kind of person who tries to be cool or trendy, I’m definitely an individual.”
Reflection: Leonardo Dicaprio is showing that even if you are successful and wealthy that you need to stay true to who you are. He has always been the same no matter how successful he got. I believe that is the reason why he has been so successful because he was always himself he didn’t let anybody change him. Being considered “cool” is obviously not what drove him to success it was being true to who he is and never letting go of that.
I believe that art can be expressed in many ways but always staying true to who you are is the key. Once you change for something that is not true to yourself it is no longer art. You can be extremely successful but you are only creating true beautiful art when you don’t lose who are in the process. You should never continue to do something for someone other than yourself. Art is all about staying true to the person you were before you got successful.
