«I NEVER READ I JUST LOOK AT PICTURES«

«I JUST READ EVERYTHING»

PAGLIA: I understand when men complain about women giving mixed messages, because women have given me a lot of mixed messages. I understand the rage that this can cause.

PLAYBOY: Give us an example.

PAGLIA: A woman I'm talking with at some event says, "Let's leave here and go to this bar," which is a lesbian bar. We go to the bar and we're talking and then she says, "Let's go have coffee," and we go to this coffee shop and end up, at three in the morning, half a block from her apartment. Finally, she says, "All right, well, goodnight." She's ready to go home alone and I look at her, like, "What do you mean? Aren't we going to go back to your apartment?" "No." "What?" And she says, "Do you think I was leading you on?" Un-fucking-believable. I can't tell you the rage. I am, at that point, looking at her and.... All I can say is, if I had been an 18-year-old street kid instead of a 45-year-old woman, I would have stabbed her. I was completely humiliated and furious. If I had been a guy with a hard-on, I would have hit her.

«THEY ALWAYS HAD GREAT GIRL MODELS BUT NOW THE BOY MODELS ARE JUST AS GOOD“

«ART IS WHAT YOU CAN GET AWAY WITH»

Wasn't it Andy Warhol who said, "Art is anything you can get away with"? – and went on to prove his point again and again, without ever being rumbled. It's always been a tricky area: nobody wants to be thought of as an untutored oaf, the kind of person who boldly states, "I don't know anything about art, but I know what I like" or, "I always think that's the sign of a good painting, when the eyes seem to follow you around the room." It makes "art" fruitful soil for the chancer and the charlatan, and those who imagine that they're "artists", because nobody has the confidence to tell them what they're doing is rubbish, just in case it isn't. We've been saddled for years with what we can see is a pile of bricks or a heap of dung, and recognise it for the nonsense it is, but because somebody who is supposed to know a great deal more than we do about "art" says that's what it is, we're schtum. Old art, the stuff that required draughtsmanship, perspective, the sheer blinding talent to portray a subject sensitively and beautifully in paint, stone, bronze or porcelain went out the artist's attic window some time ago. We all know the argument that photography has long since supplanted painting or sculpture as a means of accurately representing a figure or a scene, but at the same time I'm loath to accept anyone who claims to be an artist, when it's painfully obvious that they can't draw for toffee.

«OH, ART IS TOO HARD»

“Skin Fruit” is a shapeless amalgam of big names, big dicks, and big price tags, crowded into too little space. Koons’s intention in taking these 83 works from the star collector Joannou’s huge trove was, he said, to choose art that deals with “a vocabulary that people can respond to.” Based on the art he’s chosen, I interpret that language to be big, brash, and bold. Though the title is explained only obliquely, the erotic content suggests it might be Koons’s way of taking “skin flute,” the slang term for phallus, and feminizing it, making it more suggestive, juicier. But trying to think like Koons is almost an oxymoron. And the overwhelming impression I came away with was, Wow, these two guys are really sick puppies. They’ve got sex, shit, birth, and death on the brain. Maybe we all do. But the work displayed here is especially aggressive, and short on nuance, subtlety, and seduction. Perhaps to the New Museum’s credit, much of it would never be shown in any other major New York museum. It’s hard to imagine Kiki Smith’s life-size sculpture of a man performing autofellatio displayed in MoMA’s atrium, for example. Or Pawel Althamer’s live crucifixion reenactment at the Whitney. The sheer amount of transgressiveness, at least, brings a bracing real-life quality of grit and truthfulness to the show. It’s also in keeping with the museum’s stated aim, “to support new art … not yet familiar to mainstream audiences.” There’s plenty of work here that people outside the community of specialists and aficionados don’t often get to see. The art world has not embraced the show (to put it mildly), and here’s why. In playing to its largest audience to date, the New Museum is not only pandering, but trying to trump the competition with the undeclared game of “collect the collector.” At the show’s core is a distorted and depressing reality: Joannou’s collection is drawn from a tiny slice of the art world—the superrich, the super-hyped and the supermale. (Barely a quarter of the work is by women.) It includes far too many famous artists who sell to major collectors for vast sums.

«MORE THAN ANYTHING PEOPLE JUST WANT STARS»

 Ce n'est pas l'âme qui intéressait Warhol mais l'apparence. Les 250 portraits réunis dans cette exposition en apportent la confirmation, s'il en était besoin. Ils annoncent l'avènement de l'ère médiatique. Et le découpage du parcours par typologie « professionnelle » (stars de cinéma, monde de l'art, univers de la mode, personnalités politiques...) conforte l'image du créateur comme artiste mondain. Mais, qu'il s'agisse de Jacky Kennedy ou de Basquiat, de Brigitte Bardot ou du Shah d'Iran, le roi du pop art place tous ses modèles sur un pied d'égalité. « A l'avenir, tout le monde aura droit à son quart d'heure de célébrité », prophétisait Warhol. C'est ce que n'a pas apprécié Pierre Bergé. Il a exigé le retrait de quatre portraits d'Yves Saint-Laurent, au prétexte que son compagnon défunt ne pouvait figurer dans cette section intitulée « Glamour », pourtant consacrée aux couturiers comme Armani et Rykiel, mais qu'il méritait une place plus gratifiante, c'est-à-dire la compagnie des artistes, Beuys ou David Hockney.

«PERSONNALY I LOVED PORNO AND I BOUGHT LOTS OF IT ALL THE TIME"

Justel, after all, describes himself as 100 percent straight. He is merely gay for pay. Like the vast majority of the thousands of “perfectly straight” Czech men performing in gay porn, he gets offended when asked whether he ever considered he might be gay. He is, he insists, only doing it for the money. Visibly timid, inexperienced and “hetero,” he caters perfectly to the sexual fantasies of those discerning consumers — primarily American gay men — looking to satisfy their appetites for homosexual pornography featuring straight men.Gay men have always fetishized masculinity and seen straight guys as real guys, says Jeffrey Escoffier, the author of the book "Bigger Than Life: The History of Gay Porn Cinema from Beefcake to Hardcore" and a visiting scholar at the New York University Center for the Study of Gender and Sexuality. “It’s a marketing opportunity for producers,” he says. “A large percentage of gay men see heterosexual men as more masculine than gay men.”According to Higgins, gay men want to see straight guys but imagine them as gay, which is partly why 90 percent of the Czech men he uses in his films are heterosexuals, or at least “that's what they like to call themselves.”Higgins also likes to recruit men who have typically never done porn or had sex with men before and market their inexperience as an asset, not a drawback. To this day, he enjoys filming the first-timers, especially if they don’t really like it. He zooms in on their faces clenched in pain. It makes it real, Higgins says. He also prefers working with straight guys because they are not as picky about with whom they have sex. “If they are willing to do it with a guy, they’ll do it with any guy. It’s a job,” he says. “We have one gay guy who always dictates who he’s going to do it with. I’d much rather work with straight guys.”

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

Recently, there have been a lot of paparazzi photos of Shia LaBeouf shirtless, pumped up, leaving the gym. He’s training with Michael Alexander in Beverly Hills. (Mr. Alexander is one of many who declare themselves “trainer to the stars.”) Never an out-of-shape young man, Shia is now buffed to the max. Is he readying for an action/adventure movie? Maybe. But according to my source, the “Transformers” and “Wall Street 2” star is actually getting in super shape for – are you ready? – a sequel to “American Gigolo.” That was the iconic 1980 Paul Schrader film about a male prostitute, played with full-frontal brio by Richard Gere.In this proposed sequel, Gere will appear in his original role; now a much-matured hustler-turned-male-madam. LaBeouf is the fresh meat on the block. Also said to be putting in return appearances are Hector Elizondo as a cop, and Lauren Hutton. You’ll recall that in the first “Gigolo,” Miss Hutton was the one woman for whom Mr. Gere seemed willing to give up his laid-back lifestyle and Armani suits.

Let’s talk about sex. I don’t know if you read it, but there was recently this interesting article about Andy Warhol in the New Yorker by Louis Menand.

-Yes, I liked that article.

It was good. It talked about Warhol’s sex life. It was kind of shocking to me that they said he was really good in bed in the early 60s.

-No one should remember that.

And that his voyeurism wasn’t about asexuality. It was more that he was interested in public sex.

-It was something new then. What he did could be considered porn, but it’s art now, because the world thinks it’s erotic art. I don’t know where the borderline between pornography and erotic art is. Look at the attributes; you have to be very intellectual to see any borderline there. You know, I was in a Warhol movie. It was called L’Amour. I knew him and I knew all the people around him. It was a trendy, funny thing to do then.

«CHURCH IS A FUN PLACE TO GO»

«THERE SHOULD BE COURSE IN FIRST GRADE ON LOVE»

In a man, the craggy physical characteristics associated with masculinity often indicate a strong immune system and thus a likelihood of his producing healthier offspring than his softer-featured confrères will. But such men are also more promiscuous and do not care as much about long-term relationships, leaving women to raise their kids alone.Nowadays, sound parenting is often more important to the viability of a man’s offspring than Herculean strength. That, some researchers suspect, may be changing the physical traits that women look for in a mate, at least in some societies. A study carried out in 2004, for example, discovered that women in rural Jamaica found manly types more desirable than did women in Britain, which led to questions about whether those preferences were arbitrary or whether women in different parts of the world might be adapting to circumstances that place different emphasis on manliness in the competitive calculus.Dr Jones and Dr DeBruine therefore looked to see if there is an inverse relationship between women’s preference for masculine features and national health. Sure enough, they found one. In environments where disease is rampant and the child-mortality rate is high, women prefer masculine men. In places like America and Britain, where knowing how to analyse health-care plans is more important than fighting off infection, effeminate men are just as competitive

«SHOPPING IS MORE AMERICAN THAN THINKING»

Andy Warhol predicted that in the future, museums will become shopping malls and shopping malls museums. The future has happened. The museum has been a place where one moves seamlessly between buying and viewing for long enough that the gift shop has come to define the experience. It might have started when the MET put trinkets and overpriced hardcovers on every floor, but it is the MoMA which has perfected the model.

SOUP CAN

The nature of Warhol’s legacy is spelled out in Gary Indiana’s pithy account, focusing on the artist’s enduring masterpieces, the “Campbell’s Soup Can” paintings, which rocked an unsuspecting art world in the summer of 1962. Their appearance at the Ferus Gallery in Los Angeles, ranged evenly as in a supermarket, drew more ridicule than praise. A nearby gallery filled its windows with Campbell’s soup and offered “the real thing for only 33 cents a can”. Far from distressed, Warhol joined in the fun. He took a photographer to the supermarket and had his picture taken signing the cans. The photograph was wired round the world. For Indiana, the “Soup Can” series “condensed, like canned soup, what pop art had been seeking. It reflected the unanticipated effects of technological changes on the ways Americans lived after the second world war – changes in mores and values created by accelerated consumerism”. The “Soup Cans” were stinging rebukes on the dull conformism of the previous decade. They were “works of obdurate stupidity radiating the aptness of genius”. At the centre of their creation was the enigmatic cool of their creator. Warhol’s personality, vapid, ironic, passive, was as strong a statement of his time as his works. You had to search hard but there was even an element of personal biography in his pioneering work: Warhol had had to eat Campbell’s soup for lunch every day “throughout 20 years of grinding poverty”, and was taking obscure revenge on the innocent foodstuff.

LADY GAGA ANDY WARHOL AND HER «TELEPHONE» VIDEO

Alternating between Japanese and comic book-style subtitles, the video channels Gaga's beloved pop art pioneers Roy Lichenstein and Andy Warhol. Inspired by the Warhol's exploration of mass consumer culture and advertising through his Campbell's soup studies, Gaga and Akerlund challenge the gender stereotype of the "perfect housewife" portrayed heavily in 1950s pop culture, using Wonder Bread and Miracle Whip as their artistic devices. Bloggers and fans are crying product placement—which in the case of Miracle Whip, it partly is—but its inclusion is more likely an homage to her greatest idol, who himself was a living, breathing piece of art.

Herein lies the convenient Catch-22 Lady Gaga has created for herself. Much like Warhol, she has as much a part in feeding into pop consumer culture as she has in making a statement against it. Whatever product placement or triviality exists within her videos can be excused as art under the pretense of her participation in the pop art movement—whether "Gaga" as a product is really who she is or the product of a label is almost irrelevant when you consider that maybe she's the modern-day Magritte or marcel Duchamp...

As we would drink our wines and get lost in the blissful joys of conversation, across the darkened room - sexual predators were waiting. Okay, that's a bit dramatic but I would always keep a watchful eye on the wolf packs of straight men staring at us. These "man packs" were of two different kinds: some would look baffled as to how I was surrounded by a herd of hot chicks and their looks of stunned silence would amuse me. Others would already be joking about which of my friends they planned to "poach" as their target for the night. My observational super-powers meant I usually knew their targets before they walked over.The thing is, the GBF (gay best friend) is the secret weapon of every single woman. The GBF will make sure they get home safely if they're too drunk or try their damn best to stop them going home with a fugly guy they'll end up regretting the next day. Also, they're likely to be the only person to suggest ditching a new boyfriend or prospect when all that person's girlfriends say they like him (but are too scared to say he's a jerk).

PHILOSOPHY FOR THE 21st CENTURY: RELIGIOUS DIVIDE

«ANYONE CAN TAKE A GOOD PICTURE»

From 1976 until his death, 11 years later, he took at least one roll of black-and-white film every day. Colour, he said, was 'too expensive’, and it didn’t have the paparazzi feeling he liked. Night after night, he’d set out for his round of art openings, movie premieres, book parties, dinners and discos, his jacket pockets stuffed with extra rolls of film and batteries. 'It’s work,’ he would say, of both his party-going and his picture-taking.These pictures are just part of that great unpublished body of work. They encapsulate the full sweep of Warhol’s world, from William S Burroughs to Chris Evert, from Gloria Swanson to the Talking Heads. Because he was not just any photographer but a famous artist, a star, there is often a sense that the looking is being done at the man with the camera as well as by him. As spontaneous as these images may seem, they are intrinsically staged, with Warhol himself as both chronicler and catalyst of the moments he is documenting. And what moments they are. Only Warhol could get David Hockney in extra-brief running shorts, or Susan Sontag batting her eyelashes across a fancy restaurant table at Gloria Vanderbilt. Indeed, almost all the face cards of the late Seventies scene are here, at ease behind the velvet rope: Mick Jagger beside Catherine Deneuve, Roman Polanski, Diana Ross, Tatum and Ryan O’Neal, Liz Taylor deep in her Senator John Warner period, Arnold Schwarzenegger before politics, and OJ Simpson when everyone still loved him…

YOUTH WITHOUT COCKINESS IS NO YOUTH AT ALL

CONFIRMED: MEN ARE FUCKING DUMB!

Researchers found they take greater risks in order to impress and as a result become more accident prone. They show that just looking at an attractive woman makes them more likely to indulge in "physical risk-taking" which ends in embarrassing failure or even injury.The change in behaviour is triggered by a surge in the male hormone testosterone which makes men "throw caution to the wind", according to psychologists at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia. They made the finding after a studying young male skateboarders. In tests, the team used both male and female observers to watch how the men performed their manoeuvres at a local park. Results revealed that they "took more risks when they were observed by an attractive female than when they were observed by a male. «This increased risk-taking led to more successes but also more crash landings in front of the female observer. "Saliva tests confirmed they had "elevated testosterone levels" while a good-looking woman was around.

Beginning May 11, Christie's in New York will auction major works from the art collection of late author, screenwriter, director, and producer Michael Crichton announced the auction house on February 5. Four works from the collection -- Jasper Johns's Flag, plus paintings by Rauschenberg, Lichtenstein, and Picasso -- are on display at Christie's in London through February 12. Crichton was acknowledged as a leading authority on the American artist Jasper Johns, having been asked by the artist to write the catalog for his 1977 retrospective at the Whitney Museum of American Art. Crichton was close friends with Johns and also struck up friendships with artists David Hockney (who made a portrait of Crichton in 1976), Roy Lichtenstein, Robert Rauschenberg, and Claes Oldenburg.

ANDY WARHOL ON PRO WRESTLING: IT'S EXCITEMENT, IT'S SHOW BUSINESS, IT'S CHIC"

«I LIKE MONEY ON THE WALL»

There is still a tremendous demand for art, and “the sky’s the limit” for top quality works which are “properly priced and fresh to the market”. This was the message this week from Sotheby’s New York conference for its fourth quarter and full year 2009 results. The firm announced sales of $2.8bn for 2009, a drop of 54 per cent from its 2008 total of $5.3bn; yet it made a net profit of $73.6m in the fourth quarter – the second highest in the company’s history. Asked whether today’s art buyers are from China, Russia and the Middle East rather than the US and the UK, chief executive officer Bill Ruprecht said: “Those driving the art market right now are citizens of the world, they have homes in five, six, 10 different places.” A perfect example is the billionaire “Gilded” Lily Safra, revealed by Bloomberg to be the buyer of the £65m Giacometti, who has homes in London, Geneva, Monaco, the Côte d’Azur and New York.

«I LIKE EVERYBODY'S ART»


« The world of food and the visual arts are very similar.  First, both can evoke powerful emotions. I believe that food has the capacity to stir something deep inside a person. The same can be said for a good work of art. At the same time, in both food and art different colors make people feel a certain way and can stimulate a person’s senses either in a positive or negative way.  For instance, it’s known that blue food is the least appealing while other bright colors can be tantalizing.  In art, when the human portrait is painted in shades of blues, this can make a viewer feel hopeless and gloomy. As for textures, if a chef creates a dish and something goes wrong and it turns out like formless slop, well that can be very unappetizing even though the flavors are correct.  Similarly, if I sculpt a giant doughnut properly, you can imagine putting it in your mouth and letting the colorful icing dissolve at bit on the roof of your mouth before biting the soft and delicate tasty dough.»

RICHARD HAMILTON

Born in 1922, Hamilton is now the granddaddy of modern British art. He trained as a technical draughtsman in the war, and made money making models for design fairs after it. That interest in the applied arts and design has influenced both his works and the graphic layout of this exhibition (curators told me that it is significant that some of the pictures are hung at “dog height”). In the Fifties, Hamilton played a leading role in the avant-garde Independent Group, a band of artists, designers, architects and theorists who anticipated the informal yet intellectual approach of conceptual art with seminars, lectures and exhibitions at the Institute of Contemporary Arts (happier days!). The culmination of this way of thinking was Hamilton’s Pop Art collage titled Just What Is It That Makes Today’s Homes So Different, so appealing? (1956), a parody of postwar consumerism. For a moment he exerted a major influence over the future of Pop Art — Warhol, Rosenquist, Polke, you name it — worldwide.

IT'S USELESS TO BE YOUNG WITHOUT BEING BEAUTIFUL AND VICE VERSA....

«THERE SHOULD BE COURSE IN FIRST GRADE ON LOVE»

"You want to know the surest way that you can spot a 'sex addict?' He's got a penis."

Bill Maher

Comedians aren't the only ones noting that the line between what people are calling "sex addiction" and normal male human libido is very fine, if not non-existent. I'm willing to grant that there's a problem if someone loses his job because he can't stop looking at porn, but I'm certainly not willing to grant that looking at porn constitutes cheating on one's spouse or is inherently indicative of some underlying pathology. I mean, where do we stop once we go wandering down that path? Is it cheating to think of someone else when masturbating? When making love with one's regular partner? When sound asleep, dream?

«I LIKE MONEY ON THE WALL»

Feb. 5 (Bloomberg) -- Christie’s International is to sell four paintings from the collection of the best-selling author Michael Crichton, with a total value of at least $30 million. A Jasper Johns “Flag” and works by Pablo Picasso, Robert Rauschenberg and Roy Lichtenstein bought by the late Beverly Hills-based novelist will be sold in New York on May 11 and go on show in London today, the auction house said in an e-mail.

WARHOLIAN QUOTE OF THE DAY

«Life is too important to be taken seriously.»

-Oscar Wilde

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

In the MALES section called Quality of Life, men were asked to rate the following seven goals in order of importance:

• Being in good health
• Satisfying sex life
• Harmonious family life
• Good relationship with partner/wife
• Enjoying life to the fullest
• Satisfying career or work life
• Having a nice home

Again, the findings were quite surprising. The top three answers were: "being in good health"; "a harmonious family life"; and "good relationship with partner/wife." "A satisfying sex life" was last, tied with "a nice home." While there was definitely variability in the top answers depending on country, "a satisfying sex life" always came last. Even more astonishing were the findings in regard to age and marital/partner status. Younger men, age 20-39 still rated the same three goals as most important. When comparing single vs. married men, the only difference was that singles rated "enjoying live to the fullest" in second place along with "a harmonious family life"-while "a good relationship with their partner" was ranked fourth. Again "a satisfying sex life" was rated last.
