During his fifty-year career of playing music for the world, Liberace embraced a lifestyle of flamboyant excess whether on the stage or in the home. In a 1956 article for British tabloid The Daily Mirror, Liberace was described as "the summit of sex - the pinnacle of masculine, feminine, and neuter... a deadly, winking, sniggering, snuggling, chromium-plated, scent-impregnated, luminous, quivering, giggling, fruit-flavoured, mincing, ice-covered heap of mother love." As this description suggests, Liberace was often believed to be gay; however, he denied this until his death, which was caused by an AIDS-related illness. Liberace's lavish lifestyle was portrayed by Michael Douglas in Steven Soderbergh's 2013 film, Behind the Candelabra, with Matt Damon playing Liberace's much younger lover, Scott Thorson.; - Pat Hackett, editor of The Warhol Diaries
