Her fog, her amphetamine and her pearls..
Speaking of Fuzzy or Minty....Edie Sedgwick was involved with Bob as well. But her most famous relationship was with Andy Warhol. Edie was a bright shiny toy for the pop artist to play with. She launched Andy into Uptown New York proper because of her family name and was crowned the "It Girl" of '65. The relationship ended on a sour note because the lack royalties on Andy's part. Poor Little Rich Girl was a hit in Paris but the artist expected everyone to do his movies for free because of who he was. A.A (After Andy) she found a short lived sanctuary at The Chelsea Hotel where she began her fling with Bob Dylan. Her struggle with anorexia and heroin, in and out of mental institutions and rehabs, put a stop to her young heart at the age of 28. Edie just couldn't make it in The Factory, but she was great piece of glitter while it lasted.
