More On Richard Corman's 66 Unearthed Madonna Polaroids — And Buy His Limited New Book! Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-11-28 at 2.39.27 PM(All images by Richard Corman)

Richard Corman has granted an interview to Vogue, in which he reminisces about the time he took 66 (and there are probably a few others out there) Polaroids of Madonna one day in the early '80s, with an eye toward helping his mother cast her in a film:

“She was wearing white lace leggings under torn jeans . . . a jean jacket with graffiti on the back and the sleeves cut off, with these rubber bangles, more like friendship bracelets, that she would give away to friends. Her makeup was just so brash—these red lips, and she created that mole on the side of her face,” he says. “You’d say now that it was so chic—you walk into Opening Ceremony, Urban Outfitters, and this is what everyone is wearing—but she was a visionary. It was so bohemian and gritty and down-to-earth. She was going to vintage clothing shops. She had great taste—and you can’t teach that. And the dress, I swear she paid $2 for the gown, and it was so exquisite.”

Even more importantly, Corman's next Madonna book is on sale now — only 500 copies of the most limited edition will be available, so act fast and click here.

If you're a Madonna fan, you've probably read about the upcoming Emmy and the Breakfast Club, a documentary that promises to air unheard songs performed by Madonna 35 years ago when she was involved with Dan Gilroy and living with him in an abandoned synagogue in Queens.

The movie is the second Madonna-themed effort for filmmaker Guy Guido, whose Physical Attraction followed a young man's coming-out story as he pursued some face time with a rising downtown-NYC star named ... you know her name.

Above, an actual exchange in the comments section of the Club Mix of “Show Me” by the Cover Girls.

Thank GOD I lived in music capital of the world (then!) Chicago at the height of the house music and freestyle craze; both forms were even better than anal sex.

Fuck me, it's been 30 years.

Awesome song after the jump ...

I am dying that I missed this 2014 documentary short on Alisha, a fabulous '80s diva who never became more than a gay-household name. I just love her, with her songs “All Night Passion” (1984), “Too Turned On” (1985),  “Baby Talk” (1985) and “Bounce Back” (1990) are among my all-time faves ...

ABSOLUTE BEST: Divine's SHOOT YOUR SHOT Comments (0)

Screen Shot 2016-11-04 at 10.07.13 PM(Video still via MOM Records)

The Absolute Best Divine song has to be “Shoot Your Shot,” with this fantastic video showcasing Divine's uniquely poor lip-synching skills, his amazing attitude and this warehouse of lame pizzazz. 

It's like glitz went into a deep depression, and it's aided and abetted by the late gender you-ain't-foolin'-anybody-ist's charming stomp-dancing.

As a bonus, the club banger is explicitly about having producing copious amounts of baby batter. And you can dance to it!

I can think of 100 living stars I'd like to trade places with Divine ...
