An insider tells us that the iconic rocker demanded the bar be shut down when he sang at Persol's Incognito design exhibit at the Whitney on Tuesday - because he didn't want to hear the clinking of glasses or ice. Onstage, the musician even shouted to the crowd, "Shut the [bleep] up - you're talking too much!"Apparently one of the fans who obeyed was Lucy Liu. I'm not sure if I like her more or less now.
In related news, Timothy Greenfield-Sanders says the show was "flawless." He talked to Reed, who said, "It''s always fun to play a museum. When I was with Andy Warhol, we played hundreds of them." Especially when you can tell Lucy Liu to shut up and she does, I guess.
