Pornhub honoring Jeff Koons’ ex Cicciolina with lifetime achievement award

The erotic Jeff Koons sculptures that she inspired helped propel him to be the highest-grossing living artist of our time. But Ilona Staller’s getting something out of her horny history, too.

Page Six is told that Pornhub is giving Staller — stage name Cicciolina — its first-ever lifetime achievement prize at its award ceremony next month. She famously featured in then-husband Koons’ 1990 “Made in Heaven” series of hyperrealistic sculptures of the pair having some pedestal-worthy sex. She’s also had a storied career in porn, not to mention a stint in the Italian parliament.

Corey Price, VP of Pornhub, told us the site is giving her the award because she is “the embodiment of an international superstar. Her life and legacy is an intersection of art, fashion, politics and porn.”

Cicciolina told us, “I’m very happy to be given the [award]. This is the perfect representation of the old and the new porn worlds coming together. The fact that today I’m still recognized as I was then [as] the icon that marked an era, and within the porn industry itself, is such a great honor for me. Porn is art!”
