I've never seen this—posted to YouTube yesterday, this is Madonna's full, "Herbified" eulogy for Herb Ritts. It's very sweet and provides several noteworthy details. She met him on the set of Desperately Seeking Susan, she reminisces about that amazing shoot they did on the beach and she refers to him as "like a big brother to me, a very loveable one."
She also dons glasses to read that the day of his memorial was associated with the concept that there is "no such thing as death, no such thing as an ending, no such thing as time, space or emotion, no such thing as limitations of any kind" to point out that "just because we can't see Herb, doesn't mean he's not here." Very "Nothing Fails," very American Life.
Madonna gets Ritts-y.
Touchingly, she ends by pointing out that photography is about taking a negative and turning it into a positive.
