Quote of the Week

I've always adored Brigid Berlin, the perfect motor-mouthed, penis art connoisseur, substance abuser, eating disordered, rehab junkie heiress. The 2000 documentary on her life, Pie in the Sky, was one of the most compelling tales of Factory denizens. It is at once profoundly sad and funny, a reminder that no amount of rehab will help a person escape from the sources of addiction.

So I was thrilled to see this article in the current issue of Interview magazine commemorating Warhol's 80th birthday. Brigid's as wonderfully wacky as ever and offers this memorable quote:

"The world is fine. But the people in it suck."

at times I find myself agreeing with that pithy remark.

thanks for the link - look forward to having a few to read the article.

Mouse - She is a woman of many talents. Hearing her imitate her mother in "Pie in the Sky" is quite a joy as well. If only more heiresses would follow her example.
