Andy Warhol Blondie painting sells for 5.9 million

An Andy Warhol portrait of Blondie star Debbie Harry has sold for a staggering $5.9 million.

The Heart of Glass singer posed for Warhol in his New York studio back in 1980 and the finished product – a hot pink silkscreen canvas – was one of the star lots at Sotheby’s two-day auction in London, which ended on Thursday.

All I can say is whoever paid 5.9 million for that painting is a idiot.
