Artist Butcher Billy has created a series of very meta portraits that depict historic music icons as fans of the musicians who were inspired by them.

While the concept may seem very trippy, especially to those who are not use to grasping such high concept ideas involving time travel and causality, one does not need to be well versed in such matters in order to enjoy Butcher Billy's piece 'Reversed Music Icons Fandom Project.' It's interesting to see
such rock icons like Kiss sporting a Miley Cyrus shirt or legendary musicians like John Lennon, Paul McCartney or Freddie Mercury wearing the clothing of acts who are in fact inspired by them, like Lady Gaga was with Freddie Mercury.

Butcher Billy's music icons series is a thought provoking piece about today's music in addition to being a visual treat. Stats for Time Displaced Celebrity Photos Trending: Older & Chilly
