There's Nothing To Say Off-Camera: Madonna Shocks Fans With Surprise Appearance At TRUTH OR DARE Screening Comments (0)

Joe Berger has been working his heart out to get Madonna's glory years on film properly acknowledged, first with an invite-only MoMA screening of the 1991 gem Madonna: Truth or Dare (at the time the most successful documentary ever), then with a special evening devoted to choreographer-director Vincent Paterson, then with a Madonna film series at Metrograph that embraces the best (Dangerous Game) and worst (Body of Evidence) she had to offer.

So think of it as Kabbalistic karma that tonight, at his Truth or Dare event, Madonna herself shocked the entire room by showing up totally unannounced (her publicists knew, the MoMA curator knew—that was it) to sit in the middle of the audience and watch every frame of the film.

Bitch, He's Michael Musto Comments (0)

Michael Musto recaps his love/hate/more hate/grudging respect relationship with Madonna for his old bosses at the Village Voice. He talks a lot of sense, though I must say—in spite of my dislike for Britney Spears—I do disagree that Madonna macking on the younger pop star (and Christina Aguilera was there, too, guys!!!) was unartistic and had no appeal. I fucking loved that moment. It was unreal how real it was to Justin Timberlake and to the teen-pop world, and though it was well-worn ground for Madonna, it was a point worth remaking in an iconic way.

Otherwise, enjoy.

I would say you can find more of Michael's always-entertaining (and firsthand) Madonna musings in my book, Encyclopedia Madonnica 20, but in fact you will find less. That sounds like a bad sales pitch, so instead I'll say:

You can find a different version of Michael's always-entertaining (and firsthand) Madonna musings in my book, Encyclopedia Madonnica 20!

In the end, I think his take on Madonna is that he knows she's a force, but doesn't have the affection for her that he has for Diana Ross or Lady Gaga. But they never kicked him out of his dressing room.

Dance Like Everybody's Watching: An Interview With Choreographer Vincent Paterson Comments (0)

Madonna fans know Vincent Paterson as the choreographer who worked on her “Express Yourself” video, her Marie Antoinette “Vogue” extravaganza for MTV, her Oscars performance of “Sooner or Later (I Always Get My Man)” and also as the man who directed and choreographed one of her greatest projects, the Blond Ambition World Tour.

 

More recently, he was the subject of the outstanding documentary The Man Behind the Throne, which detailed in particular his work with both Madonna and Michael Jackson.

In truth, his career encompasses many things outside of the King and Queen of Pop.

Now, Paterson is preparing an autobiography, and he is appearing one night only in a talkback called Dance Films Presents: An Evening with Vincent Paterson (get your tickets now!), during which he will speak about six or so of his most famous pieces—and give all the dish on what made them work. He will also detail what it was like collaborating with the household names who executed his fancy footwork.

What follows is an abbreviated version of my talk with Vincent; I wanted to hold some stuff back until after his appearance so I wouldn't give too much of it away. After all, he knows a lot of the details behind some of pop's greatest moments ... because he made them happen ...
