Andy Warhol captured these photographs of Jean-Michel Basquiat, Madonna, Keith Haring, Fab 5 Freddy, Futura 2000 at Radio City Music Hall and Iso restaurant in New York City, in 1985.
Went to Radio City Music Hall for Madonna’s concert (cab $6). And the show was great. Just so simple and sexy and Madonna is so pretty. Now she’s thinner and just so great. And afterwards we went downstairs where there was a private party, the level with the ladies’ room. And Madonna came down with Jean Michel—I guess he’d gone backstage. And she was fun. She said she was going to the Palladium and might go to Keith’s dinner, and she was so sweet and nice. So we went and drove to Iso on 11th Street and Second and then Madonna did arrive, she came in a truck. And they sat her next to me, and she was great. They were teasing her about her false eyelashes, saying they were bigger than Louise Nevelson’s. And everyone was so thrilled, the waiters were on the floor. She was drawing cocks on Futura’s pants.Andy Warhol wrote in his diary:
