Bob Dylan and Andy Warhol at the Factory in New York City, 1965
Bob Dylan was brought to Andy Warhol’s Silver Factory by Barbara Rubin, a filmmaker and a mutual acquaintance of Dylan and Warhol’s, to be the subject of one of Warhol’s screen tests, which were two-minute silent movie portraits starring Factory regulars and celebrities.
Andy Warhol: “I liked Dylan, the way he created a brilliant new style… I even gave him one of my silver Elvis paintings in the days when he was first around. Later on, though, I got paranoid when I heard rumors that he had used the Elvis as a dart board up in the country. When I’d ask, ‘Why did he do that?’ I’d invariably get hearsay answers like ‘I hear he feels you destroyed Edie [Sedgwick],’ or ‘Listen to Like a Rolling Stone — I think you’re the ‘diplomat on the chrome horse, man.’ I didn’t know exactly what they meant by that — I never listened much to the words of songs — but I got the tenor of what people were saying — that Dylan didn’t like me, that he blamed me for Edie’s drugs.”
Description: You run into your ex-boyfriend while at a party with your current one and during the encounter are reminded of all the ways he still controls you. You aren’t entirely surprised to find yourself on your knees in the bathroom with him in front of you minutes later.
A/N: @avveh prepare to die. I think I listened to The Weeknd the entire time I wrote this haha. Some of the songs were played over 100 times just during the time I wrote this, particularly “Shameless”, “Earned It”, and “Often”.
