Warhol's Early Life contains a misprint[edit]

Warhol was not a hypochondriac, he had Nosocomephobia. Hypochondria means that you constantly seek medical attention for everything. Warhol had an intense fear or hospitals. Completely different. — Preceding unsigned comment added by 71.180.188.115 (talk) 18:05, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

If you have a source, it can be corrected. Willondon (talk) 19:27, 18 April 2015 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 27 May 2015 Andy Warhol / The Cars[edit]

Andy Warhol was involved with The Cars music video(s) for the their 1984 album "Heartbeat City". I believe they got him out of 'retirement' to direct the opening track's video of "Hello Again" in which he also made an appearance. He may also have been involved with the video of the title track "Heartbeat City".

in the section on Warhol in the 1960s, in the paragraph that begins with: As an advertisement illustrator in the 1950s. the word "The Factory," appears, it should be spelled as "The Factory", Patricthagod (talk) 00:59, 13 August 2015 (UTC)

On January 12, 1985, Andy Warhol together with Joseph Beuys and the Japanese artist Kaii Higashiyama involved in the "Global-Art-Fusion" project. This was a digital Fax-Art project, initiated by the conceptual artist Ueli Fuchser, in which a fax was sent with drawings of all three artist within 32 minutes around the world - from Dusseldorf (Germany) via New York (USA) to Tokyo (Japan), received at Vienna's Palais Liechtenstein Museum of Modern Art. This fax was a sign of peace during the Cold War in the 1980ies. [1]

Sexuality[edit]

For the record: some good references that help demolish the ridiculous suggestion that Warhol was asexual. Interview with Billy Name: Q. And was Warhol a sexual entity within this, or just a voyeur? A. He was an essential sexual entity. He was the essence of sexuality. It permeated everything. Andy exuded it, along with his great artistic creativity. Sexuality was part of the glamour – we expressed it like teenagers. It brought a joy to the whole art world in New York. http://civilianglobal.com/arts/the-man-who-silvered-the-andy-warhol-factory-billy-name-lou-reed-ondine-1960s-new-york/ And from a round table discussion with Warhol Superstars including BillyBoy*: "I had to tell this one day because it's been asked so many times and I've avoided it so much…Andy Warhol and I had orgasms simultaneously and I don't know why people are so curious about that." One the Roundtable participants replies "Because he looks like he never had sex and acts like he never had sex!" BillyBoy replies: "That's just an act… When he wasn't being Andy Warhol and when you were just alone with him he was an incredibly generous and very kind person. What seduced me was the Andy Warhol who I saw alone. In fact when I was with him in public he kind of got on my nerves….I'd say: 'You're just obnoxious, I can't bear you." https://myspace.com/buechsenoeffner/video/warhol-superstars-part-one-sex-with-andy/26815015 Engleham (talk) 16:58, 19 January 2016 (UTC)

Semi-protected edit request on 6 February 2016[edit]

Please change " Warhol was gay.[106][107]" to "Biographers have identified Warhol as gay"

Andy Warhol did attend mass at St. Vincent Ferrer on a neear daily basis ( I was also a parishioner). It is unlikely that he would have self-identified as gay. Also, we cannot be sure that 'gay' would be the correct identity if he did not identify as heterosexual. I do, however, respect the views of his biographers.

Original text: Other members of Warhol's Factory crowd included Freddie Herko, Ondine, Ronald Tavel, Mary Woronov, Billy Name, and Brigid Berlin (from whom he apparently got the idea to tape-record his phone conversations).[31]

Please change to: "Other members of Warhol's Factory crowd included Freddie Herko, Ondine, Ronald Tavel, Mary Woronov, Billy Name, artist Richard Bernstein who painted the covers of Interview Magazine in the 1970s and 1980s and Brigid Berlin (from whom he apparently got the idea to tape-record his phone conversations).[31]
