“I’d love to be able to talk more and give little speeches.”- Andy Warhol
In 1976, Bob Colacello, editor of Interview Magazine, invited Andy Warhol to be present at the Overseas Press Corps lunch at the Biltmore Hotel. Although Colacello presented a speech, Warhol was caught off guard when asked questions about his art.
“I wasn’t prepared so I just said yes or no. But afterwards I regretted doing my same old shy act, when I should have used the situation for practice—I’d love to be able to talk more and give little speeches. I want to work on that.” – Andy Warhol (The Andy Warhol Diaries)
