De Telegraaf – August 2018
Madonna’s 60th birthday was quite the event and we were contacted by various media asking for interviews. The first interview was done over the phone for Dutch newspaper De Telegraaf. The basic questions; why are you a fan? What do you like about her? You have a tattoo? You met her? How did you meet her? Can we send over a photographer? They wanted to do a repro of the signed meet & greet photo with some shots of Kimberly next to it. When the article was published unfortunately what was feared became reality, the article was filled with quotes Kimberly hadn’t said (ears and eyes of Madonna? In touch with management since 2012?) The exact same thing happened in De Telegraaf with the article for her 50th birthday. This.was.the.last.time.Telegraaf.sorry.not.sorry.
Gazet van Antwerpen – August 2018
Belgian newspaper Gazet van Antwerpen contacted us to ask for a phone interview. Spoke about meeting Madonna, becoming her fan, the tattoo and much more. The article was published on August 15 in het Gazet van Antwerpen, which was also available online.
Algemeen Dagblad – August 2015
Dutch newspaper Algemeen Dagblad asked if they could come over for a video item. On the day of driving to Antwerp to see Britney perform her Piece of Me show, the Algemeen Dagblad stepped into the Madonna room. Because almost everything was taped in one take the video came out positive and spontaneous as requested.
The questions asked were fun and there was no need to ‘act’. The next day a short piece was included in the actual newspaper with a link to the video item. The video item was then taken over by many local online newspapers. It was a fun video and thank you all for the lovely comments about it! To check it out click HERE
Radio Omroep Flevoland – August 2018
Through social media local radio Omroep Flevoland contacted Kimberly with a request for a video interview. Due to other M-commitments there was no time and we agreed on a phone interview instead.
On the early morning of Madonna’s birthday Omroep Flevoland made their phone call and asked questions on being a Madonna fan, how to celebrate this day and which Madonna song to play. To listen to the interview click HERE
RTL Nieuws – August 2018
RTL Nieuws got in touch after seeing the item in De Telegraaf and wanted to do a video item for TV. Thursday morning they entered the Madonna room too and filmed various items. After showing some of it on their request (such as the promo Music pink cowboy hat and refusing to put it on) they sat down for an interview.
The RTL Nieuws item was shown on RTL4 at the 23.30 news segment, an entirely different version with other images was available to see online HERE.
Radio Nostalgie – August 2018
Belgian radio contacted Kimberly after reading the segment in the Gazet van Antwerpen. The interview was recorded in the afternoon and aired just a while later. The fun interview wasn’t edited when aired they only changed the requested song to ‘Hung Up’. To listen to the interview click HERE
Talkshow “M” NPO – August 2018
Through Facebook Kimberly was approached by the people behind the daily television talkshow “M”. They were going to dedicate their Thursday show to Madonna’s 60th birthday and therefore wanted fans in the audience. They were also possibly going to ask the fans some questions. Aretha Franklin passed away just before the show was going live, so they agreed to mix up the entire show. The Madonna segment was now reduced to just 15 minutes and only near the end. Because of the changes there was no time for questions, but they did keep the ‘quiz’ in it. Watch the Madonna segment HERE.
