Elizabeth Taylor (1932-2011)

Hollywood’s Pagan Queen (Camille Paglia)

When I die I don’t want to leave any leftovers. I’d like to disappear. People wouldn’t say he died today, they’d say he disappeared. But I do like the idea of people turning into dust or sand, and it would be very glamorous to be reincarnated as a big ring on Elizabeth Taylor’s finger.

–Andy Warhol (read by Nicholas Love at Andy Warhol’s memorial mass in 1987)
