One of the works for sale in his booth was a series of portaits of Instagram pictures of Beyoncé. I asked Brown if Beyoncé had come by to see the work. (I don’t even know if she’s at the fair, and her sister cancelled her planned music series down here this week at the last minute, but anything seems likely in Miami. A few of the celebrities people were discussing in hushed tones on opening day: Leonardo di Caprio, Michelle Williams, Jake Gyllenhaal, Owen Wilson, and Matthew McConaughey. It’s up for debate as to whether Gyllenhaal or di Caprio had the meanest security of the bunch.)
“That would be the ultimate Instagram!” Brown said, a phrase made all the more goofy by his London accent. “If she’s here and you see her, tell her to come over!” His voice became more severe. “In fact, write this down,” he continued. “It is everybody’s responsibility to make that Instagram happen.”
You’ve been warned.
