The painting that pop artist Andy Warhol did of Blondie singer Debbie Harry has sold for a whopping $5.9 million. Nearly six mil for a painting of Harry? That's a lot of scratch.
The painting was done in 1980 and was created at the height of Harry's fame, so that's gotta be why it grabbed such a massive sum.
The painting was done on a pink silk-screened canvas and was auctioned off by Sotheby's in London.
