Regular readers of this blog will be familiar with the partner of George Michael, Kenny Goss’s obsession with skull art, after revelations a couple of days ago. Now, a painting of ten skulls, titled, “The Skulls” by Andy Warhol has been a sold for £4,353,250 prompting questions whether Kenny has had a setback in controlling his addiction (see story at the BBC).
Has Kenny secretly blown on $8M skull art? Or did someone other than Kenny buy the work? We may never know, but that won’t stop the art glitterati talking about it. When asked by the Guardian about his purchases, singer George Michael said, “Ask Kenny. No, really. Ask Kenny – he knows about art.” Make no mistake, George will be mad as hell if Kenny has bought this.
