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)

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)

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]

Campbell's Soup was created 1962 and not 1968 like picture says Carsonseaman (talk) 04:34, 15 December 2016 (UTC)

Not done for now: You'll need to provide more information. According to this source (one of the references used in the article) and this source, it might have been 1968. The file name suggests it's 1968. How can we be sure that this low-resolution image is from one of the original paintings and not from the later portfolio? I'd ask the user who uploaded it, but they haven't contributed in over a decade. RivertorchFIREWATER 05:42, 15 December 2016 (UTC)
