Fact of the Day: Fifteen Minutes

A common phrase is that "everyone gets their 15 minutes of fame" and the phrase is believed to be the work of the artist Andy Warhol who once said "In the future, everyone will be world-famous for 15 minutes" at an event. However a man named Nat Finkelstein claimed that Andy Warhol heard it from him first.

And he probably heard it from someone else first

Maybe it's just a common expression with no known source?
