The Girl Was Andy Warhol's Muse ~ Her Name Was Edie Sedgwick

(see previous post)
Edie had drug and alcohol problems, and I believe that she was taken advantage of
....because of her drug use.
Including by Mr.Warhol.

And so she was DEAD at 28!

This picture of Warhol is quite apropos, regarding Edie, don't you think ?

Edie Sedgwick's Biography

(in this pic above)
This is Edie Sedgwick When ' They ' were through with her, and shortly before her death at 28 years of age.

*Edie Sedgwick had dimples and a big shiny smile in the beginning.....
You won't find many pictures of her with her great big dimples and her shiny smiling eyes.
This story is still sad to me.

  1. Very sad think a human was treated like that.

    MJ - soooo sorry. Have you gotten it straightened out yet?

    I know this time with "granny" is stressful, but you are making a difference in her last days.
    Deep inhales, long exhales!

    love ya girl!

  2. SOOOOO, that's who it was in the
    photo on the wall.
    Sad story.


  3. Tragic !!! But I guess that sometimes life of the MUSE

  4. I had seen a couple of documentaries on her life..she was just a beautiful naive brilliant lost soul and no match for the drug culture of Warhol's Factory. Thank you for reminding us of how drugs can overtake your life when you loose control.

  5. What a waste of a life. Maybe being a hedonistic, self-absorbed party girl isn't that great after all.

  6. francine,

    people (including the addicts themselves) forget that drug addicts and alcoholics are the easy 'prey' for anyone with an agenda.


  7. oh millie,
    how sad and true it is.


  8. Edie's tale is truly tragic. It's a testament to life not always being as rosy as it appears. How she could of been treated as such is so inhumane. I enjoyed the video clip & the photos Renee. A great post as always xx
