From Daily Mail:
Tennis champion John McEnroe says Andy Warhol ‘ruined’ his sex life, was a ‘pain in the a**’ and a ‘mediocre artist’.
McEnroe, 58, slammed the artist in his upcoming memoir, But Seriously, and claims Warhol interfered with his sex life because he would come too close to snap unflattering pictures of him while he tried to score with models, according to a report from Page Six.
‘[When you wanted to] loosen your collar and try to find a good-looking model or whatever, he always seemed to be up in everyone’s face with his camera, being a pain in the a**,’ the notorious tennis star revealed in his book.
‘He was always there at every party I was ever at, taking your picture late at night, even when you were super f**ked up… I remember thinking, “Who is this weirdo with the fake hair? Why is he waving his camera around when we’re here at 3 in the morning? Isn’t there a place that could be off-limits?”‘
John McEnroe is one of the biggest trolls in sports history, so it’s hard to side with him, but yours truly is 100% on his team for this one. I can’t imagine the frustration of not only being cockblocked, but having it come from someone as nerdy as Andy Warhol. That’s just brutal.
Fuck Andy Warhol. The guy gets all this credit for changing the art game, but what exactly did he do that was so special? He can take a picture and put a filter on it? So can all these “artsy” gals on Instagram. Warhol is like the original EDM DJ: doing half the work but still taking the same amount of credit as a real professional. Sadly, frauds like this still somehow get a few followers to validate them then walk around all smug-like. Sickening.
I would be beyond pissed if I was chilling with some beautiful models at the club (who can’t relate to that?) and a creepy looking dude with a camera came up and started killing my vibe. Like GTFO; I’m trying to make some bad decisions over here.
The worst part is you know Warhol was just trolling. Why else would McEnroe still be so upset about it? The world’s biggest troll got outtrolled by a total weirdo nerd. Moreover, Warhol and his stupid wig could just get into whatever club they wanted all willy nilly and he didn’t even appreciate it; he’d just spend all his time inside trolling. Unappreciative douche.
The saddest part of this whole feud? Back in the day, McEnroe had to pay $30,000 of his hard-earned money to Warhol because his wife wanted a piece commissioned. Talk about humble pie. As far as rivalry battles go, there’s no coming back from that..
