You wanna go?’ And he said, ‘Yeah, that’d be great.’ And then, yes, he took me home. You wanna know what happened after that? I’m not gonna tell you.”
Her Tense Interview With Courtney Love
Madonna’s famous feud with Courtney Love was on display at the 1995 VMAs. The “Like a Virgin” singer was being interviewed with MTV‘s Kurt Loder when she got a compact thrown at her by Love.
“Hi Courtney,” Loder responded. “That’s Courtney Love, everybody’s favorite,” before inviting her up to the stage, to Madonna’s dismay.
“Courtney Love is in dire need of attention right now,” she fired in the clip, per MTV, before Love joined them on stage for the rest of the very tense interview.
Her Famous Cone Bra
Madonna’s Blond Ambition tour in 1990 was the starting place for many of her most provocative and iconic outfits, including the famous Jean Paul Gaultier cone bra.
