Bob Colacello on Andy Warhol

“Yeah, it is hard for people to realize today how forbidden homosexual sex was…” – Bob Colacello (Post Gazette, 2014)

Author of “Holy Terror: Andy Warhol Close Up,” Bob Colacello spent 12 years as editor of Andy Warhol’s Interview magazine. He was involved in all facets of the life and business of Andy as a member of his inner circle. “Holy Terror” was first published in 1990, and was re-issued in 2014. He is currently a regular contributor to Vanity Fair magazine.

Colacello shared that the era Andy grew up in while being gay heightened the artist’s fear of intimacy. Andy didn’t like to be touched by people or shake hands with people – something Colacello categorized as Asperger’s, a form of autism.

Andy always wanted to be a machine, and he didn’t want to have emotion. If he had emotions, he’d have a nervous breakdown.
