He was too fragile for this world

Jean-Michel Basquiat and Madonna were going out for three months in 1982. They met in New York's Lucky Strike Club and soon after that, Madonna moved into his loft.Apparently they were completely different.Basquiat stayed up all night painting and slept all day and Madonna woke up early every day,ate healthy food and tried to take advantage of the daytime.He was a drug addict,she wasn't...Anyway

I found something Madonna wrote about him here :

"He was one of the few people I was truly envious of but he didn't know how good he was and he was plagued with insecurities. He used to say he was jealous of me because music is more accessible and it reached more people. He loathed the idea that art was appreciated by an elite group When I heard that Jean-Michel had died, I was not surprised. He was too fragile for this world."
