«MY FAVORITE THING TO BUY IS UNDERWEAR»


ONLINE DATING TIP

“ Let's say you decide you have an OK face, a great body , medium money and no power or prestige. That means you should go after other people who also have two mediums, a terrific and a nothing. It's not supposed to matter which categories the different things fall in as long as it's two mediums, one terrific one nothing»

« I JUST READ EVERYTHING»

"I went to art school, I studied pop culture, I know everything about music and iconography, pop, cultural and religious," she says. "I'm self-manufactured. . .. (I look) at it not as poison or lowbrow, but looking at it in a very highbrow way, and self-making myself to be a powerful visionary and say something that will genuinely speak to people."

«I DON'T WANT REAL PEOPLE»


FRAN LEBOWITZ

«In the deluge of comments that descended on Sotheby's disposition of Andy Warhol's earthly possessions, perhaps the only unarguable point was made by Fran Lebowitz, the humorist, who had written a column for the artist's Interview magazine. Asked how he might be feeling about the event, she said: Andy must be furious that he's dead»

THE BEAUTY OBSESSION

«If in my youth I had realized that the sustaining splendour of beauty of with which I was in love would one day flood back into my heart, there to ignite a flame that would torture me without end, how gladly would I have put out the light in my eyes. "

YOUTH IS MADE TO BE COCKY AND SHOW OFF


POST WARHOL PREDICTION: JEWISH MAG: ARE CHINESE BILLIONAIRES BUYING MONET, RENOIR AND PICASSO GOOD FOR THE JEWS?

HOLLYWOOD


«One fascinating thing about Hollywood is that it's filled with these petite, fragile beauties in their seventies and eighties that you see at all the premieres and things. You can tell they were once really beautiful because they still have that glamour aura around them, and they still hold themselves together really well. But you can't figure out who they are, or what roles they had or how they live today».

«CHURCH IS A FUN PLACE TO GO»


«IT'S CALLED GOSSIP AND OF COURSE, IT'S AN OBSESSION OF MINE»


Keith Haring, la star du street art américain, est exposé pour la première fois en Afrique. L’œuvre de cet artiste décédé très jeune, à l’âge de 31 ans, en 1990, est montrée actuellement au Bénin, à la fondation Zinsou, sous le titre « Keith Haring in Cotonou ».
À la fondation Zinsou, à Cotonou, les visiteurs sont aux anges. C’est un événement, une exposition inédite sur le sol africain. C’est le premier tête-à-tête entre les Béninois et les célèbres petits personnages dynamiques de Keith Haring : des personnages aux contours noirs avec des couleurs vives, il y a des bébés à quatre pattes ou des chiens qui jappent comme s’ils dansaient sur le hip-hop de ce ghetto-blaster, cette radiocassette XXL qu’on entend dans l’exposition.« En tant qu’Africain, c’est la première fois que je le découvre. C’est une première et une façon de redécouvrir de grands artistes ici en Afrique. » « Ah, c’est minimaliste, je ne comprends pas tout ce qu’il fait, mais ce qui est important pour l’Afrique, c’est de découvrir des artistes contemporains. »

«SHOPPING IS MORE AMERICAN THAN THINKING»

Ce qui caractérise notre époque n'est ni la censure ni la liberté d'expression. C'est la pression croisante vers l'auto-censure au nom du «shopping ensemble» que l'on camoufle aujourd'hui sous cette appellation dérisoire de vivre-ensemble.
