Bitch! I Interviewed Madonna (Part One)

It’s been one hell of a week for Madonna. More than three decades into her phenomenally successful, exceptionally prolific music career, the undisputed Queen of Pop and Dance Anthem Enchantress officially released her 13th studio album, “Rebel Heart,” to critically acclaimed reviews.

Ticket sales launched for her next concert series, presumably entitled “The Rebel Heart Tour,” which is scheduled to kick off in Miami on August 29 and will continue worldwide through at least early 2016. This of course also means the Marketing Girl has embarked on one of her legendarily calculated full-court-press media tours, which, naturally and luckily, included several gay publications.

EDGE witnessed the media mayhem that only the Material Girl can create firsthand last Monday night when Madonna sat down with select members of the gay press at the Midtown Manhattan offices of her record label, Interscope.

The album is arguably Madonna’s best effort in years. From the first single’s deep-house, gospel-infused empowerment anthem, “Living For Love” (her record 44th number-one hit on Billboard’s Hot Dance Club Songs chart) to moody and mature ballads like “Devil Pray” and “Joan of Arc,” the hauntingly redemptive “Ghosttown” (the likely next single), and just about every other genre in between, the album fully embraces its diversity.

From ‘Hell’ And Back, Madonna Lives To Tell


With mere hours until the release of her new album, Madonna sits behind a closed door in a suite at Interscope Records’ office near Times Square. A stylist darts into the room for a few touch-ups. “She wants to look good for you,” Liz Rosenberg, Madonna’s longtime publicist, tells me. I pass a pair of security guards, then wait to be beckoned into the makeshift chamber. Not much has changed since 1984, when Madonna promised to “rule the world” and subsequently invented modern pop stardom. She is still the one to decide when, where and, most importantly, how we see her.

Rarity: lifesize German Desperately Seeking Susan display

This has been in my collection since 2003 when I found it at a Dutch record fair for 70 euro’s. I had never seen before then, and have never seen one since. It is the first Madonna lifesize display known in existance. This was created to promote Desperately Seeking Susan in Germany. I have received many requests throughout the years regarding the display, but to this day it remains in my collection.

Madonna Opens Up to Howard Stern About Getting Raped, Explains Why She Never Pressed Charges: “It’s Just Not Worth It”

Madonna may be one of the biggest pop stars in music history.
But long before selling out arenas and millions of albums, she was just a girl with a dream who wanted to make it big in New York City.
In a candid new interview with Sirius XM’s Howard Stern Show, the Rebel Heart singer opened up about her big move from the Midwest to New York City. As it turned out, that first year living in the Big Apple was quite the difficult journey.
“First I was in shock, I didn’t know a soul,” she told Howard Stern when reliving her move to the East Coast. “I was saying hi to people on the streets like a dork.”


And as months passed by, Madonna’s apartment kept getting robbed, leaving her with very few items. One of the most scariest events, however, happened when her friendliness got her into a difficult situation.
“I was going to a dance class and the door was locked and I needed money for the payphone,” she explained. “[A man] gave it to me… he was a very friendly guy. I trusted everybody.”
As it turns out, the unnamed person persuaded Madonna to make her phone call across the street where he lived. What came next was most horrifying.
“I was raped,” she proclaimed. “The first year I lived in New York was crazy.”

When Stern and co-host Robin Quivers asked if she ever went to the police and filed charges, Madonna explained that the process was too overwhelming.
“You’ve already been violated,” she explained. “It’s just not worth it. It’s too much humiliation.”
And when asked if she ever wanted to just fly back home, Madonna was adamant that it was never a possibility.
“Well, have you ever been to Rochester, Michigan?” she asked. “I just didn’t want to go back. I can’t be around basic-thinking people.”
