Courtney Love Shares The Story Of How She Tried To Convince Andy Warhol To Paint Her But Failed
Nirvana singer Kurt Cobain’s widow and The Hole frontwoman, Courtney Love, took her official Instagram account to share a new post and told a really entertaining story about her early ages.
In the caption, Courtney talked about the times when she first appeared in fancy magazines and played on a couple of movies, which she taught she was an amazing person at that time.
According to her statement, Courtney always wanted to meet famous American artists, Andy Warhol, who was a leading figure in pop artworks and wanted him to paint her beauty.
Courtney thought that Andy would be mesmerized by her charming beauty and this way he could easily decide to paint her. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen at that time, which made Courtney a bit disappointed.
Here is what Courtney Love captioned:
“My first time in fancy magazines, I had been in a couple indie films, ‘Sid and Nancy’ I refused to leave Manhattan. Nowhere to go, no money & no future. I just didn’t care. I was going to meet Andy Warhol. And? He was going to be mesmerized by my charms then, he’d paint my portrait.
And? We’d be best friends. I stuck out my New York couch tour, due to incredible friends, like the great Hal Wilner, lovely Julie Glantz, and after a time, answering phones at a brothel on Lexington handing out towels and condoms, to the tricks, cleaning up the girls’ rooms after, I was always incredibly sad after I worked a shift there. You would be too.
I got so depressed I almost left. But one day somehow I got the message. I’d been called up to The Factory. ‘Andy’s taken an interest in you’ I was told.”
“He put me in his MTV show. Where I was introduced by Debbie Harry. 🧚🏻✨.When at The Factory, I found Andy’s office and went in. He was surprised, I think scared, that there I was! The man in the office with him, he runs the Warhol estate now, I double-checked with him at a gala that this happened, because memories get foggy.
I started by asking Andy if he would paint me. ‘Why?’ He asked. ‘Because I’m amazing!’ I replied. He giggled and said to his friend ‘What do you think? Should I paint Courtney?’ He did not paint me, or even my shoes, (he was fond of drawing shoes) but, he commissioned a big spread in his Interview Mag.”
