Susan Blond on her BFF Andy Warhol, representing Michael Jackson, Ozzy and Tina Turner and NYC over the last fifty years
Susan Blond is a legend. BFFs with Andy Warhol, who she told me was an expert in PR and publicity before it became a profession, Susan has represented Michael Jackson, The Clash, Joan Jett, Meatloaf, James Brown, Ozzy, Cindy Lauper, Sade, Tina Turner, Morrissey, Julio Iglesias, Boston, Luther Vandross and me. She was my first publicist and we would often attend events together.
People, she told me, are fundamentally fascinating if you give them enough space and time to talk. She talks about Michael Jackson's naivite and asexuality, what's inspiring her these days and what turns her on these days.
A class act, I loved my conversation with Susan Blond and am touched that she agreed to sit down and talk. If you want a glimpse into NYC nightlife and artlife from the 1960s to today and how popculture has become so damn popular, look no further.
