When did you became a fan?: In 1991 when I watched “Truth or Dare” on Dutch Filmnet channel, instantly hooked. I knew who she was and all my classmates were huge fans….I just didn’t get “IT” until I saw that documentary
First time you saw Madonna live: Drowned World Tour June 22, 2001 in Berlin
Favourite Madonna memory: Meeting her (Selfridges London 2004 / Hard Candy Fitness Berlin 2013 / Le Grand Journal Paris 2015) and nothing beats that very first time she appeared on stage in Berlin in the Max Schmeling Halle in 2001……mesmerized!
Favourite live moment: Madame X Tour February 5th London (perfect in every single way), every second of the Drowned World Tour, MDNA Tour entrance and that FLAWLESS G-A-Y performance in 2005, can’t forget the PIT during Re-Invention in 2004
How many times have you seen Madonna: 93x (see full list below)
Your role in MadonnaUnderground: I founded the website in 2006 with Hans and a little help from Warner Music, I run the entire website from the news to all the pages, to the social media. I am the contact person for all promotions / giveaways / parties etc. I am involved in everything. It is my daily fulltime job and I adore it!
Favourite releaseparty in FAME/Concerto: Hard Candy in 2008 just had a huge turnout, great set-up, good music and lots of sweetness….can’t go wrong with that
Favourite MadonnaUnderground memory: Icing on the cake was meeting Madonna backstage after the taping of Le Grand Journal in 2015
Final thought/comment: I am in disbelief every single day when I realize how much we’ve done and what we have accomplished. Madonna is (in my humble opinion) the greatest pop artist in history and deserves all the love we can share. She has given me so much, the least I can do is try and give something back.
