Bitch Fight At Warhol Birthday Party

Categories: Andy Warhol

At the birthday party for late, great Pop artist Andy Warhol at the Gershwin Hotel the other night, Gerry Visco took the stage to sing the Nico classic "I'll Be Your Mirror."

Toward the end of the performance, self-possessed Warhol relic Ivy Nicholson -- who used to call me and leave six-hour messages on the machine -- sloppily approached Visco to serve up all kinds of epithets, most notably "bitch".

Visco took the high road and said, "I love you," and, "I agree, Nico would have done a better job," thereby averting any bigger unpleasantness.

The incident was uncomfortable, but it lasted way shorter than 15 minutes and, hey, Andy would have loved it.

Here's Nico's version, by the way:

Dear Michael: Thanks for posting this.  I had a great time singing "I'll Be Your Mirror" and I sympathize with Ivy Nicholson but she should really be more polite and stop rambling about how great she is. Did Andy Warhol even like her?  Yes, she was so gorgeous, but looks aren't everything. She is a real character, though, I'll grant you that. You don't see 'em like that every day, not anymore.  Just want to credit the journalist visiting from Russia, Mikhael Agafonov, who was on hand to take the video. So many people say they're going to take video at an event and here is one who actually DID and caught the moment.

And I guess it fits right in to have the picture of Edie Sedgwick projected behind the sad drama.

What do you expect when you bring together a bunch of bitter old losers who used to suck off Warhol and are still trying to do so>

Gerry sounds good on the song. Ivy should take a chill pill.

I love how to get the attention off of the train wreck onstage, they put on "Cruel Summer".
