SUPERSTAR


I love this great quote from Andy Warhol superstar Brigid Berlin.

"My mother wanted me to be a slim, respectable socialite. Instead I became an overweight troublemaker."

"I Shot Andy Warhol" is a hilarious movie. I'm sure you've seen it, mm.

Oh, yes, I liked the movie - I used to be a total crazed Warhol fan - I had lunch once with Ultra Violet and have partied with many of the old factory regulars. Alas, like many of the celebs I have painted, fiction is always better than truth - in other words, sometimes when you meet an idol, they turn out to be human, and not the witty superhuman you expected them to be.

Also, check out Midnight Cowboy for the party scene - full of real Warhol superstars.
