My first reaction: as I recall, this would have been per-MTV. So it wouldn't have been a video opportunity.

My second reaction: this explains a lot of things.

My third reaction: how Oprahesque.

Old story. She's lied about everything in her life, so I don't even buy this story. Her arrival in NY story was full of shit and was debunked countless times by biographers. Her brother's book - my god, she's a mental case. Pick it up and read about her rolling around on her mother's grave for entertainment, lying how they always visited the place as children. The woman is a mess, which explains that evil anti-gay cult she's in. BTW, she's doing a rape story and using Terry Richardson for the photos. lol. The irony! Stupid cunt that still calls homosexuality a "sexual preference." She should retell everyone how she had a lot of abortions.

It's hilarious to read the comments reacting to this. Everyone calls bullshit or how insufferable she is using this for attention. The expose then detours into Kabbalah.

On another site I saw more pics from the photo shoot...MAJOR photoshop happening.

I love how Vadge writes as if she's nothing more than a pure artistic soul who wants to challenge and do good in the world. Bitch please. ALL you wanted was fame and fortune and were willing to do anything possible to achieve those 2 goals. She can read as many old religious texts as she wants, and "enlighten" herself by "studying" Kabbalah or seeing psychics (she did this in the late 80s), yet she's still a raging bitch towards the everyday man and woman she comes across in her life? Fucking self-important hypocrite.

by Anonymousreply 2410/05/2013

Madonna is a very evil and immoral vixen who has lead a life of lying and deceit, promoting herself in a sexual way. Her children are products of out-of-wedlock escapades. She is low class. Just because she is famous doesn't mean she should be respected. She earned her money flaunting her sexuality in the most vulgar way. It's disgusting people continue to support her.

What I don't get is the disbelief. Rape isn't exactly a rare occurrence. It's not like she's claiming to have been abducted by aliens.

by Anonymousreply 2810/05/2013

That article would have been more effective if she had focused on one or two anecdotes instead of superficially touching on a series of life events like it was a damn college essay with the theme of truth or dare. Bitch, we know you, we don't need to read a list of shit you've done. She mentions this rape only in passing and in an oddly casually manner. I was put off within the first few sentences when she feels the need to put down the young dancers, etc. she was playing truth or dare with in that famous scene from her old documentary.

Exactly, R28.

by Anonymousreply 3010/05/2013

Why are we so quick to say it didn't happen? And R3 is a sick fuck.

She didn't completely lie about living in NYC. She apparently did get some money from time to time, but it wasn't like she was living in some Penthouse. She was still in dives while trying to get a record deal.

Madonna has always had a coldness when it has come to her sexuality. For someone who has always flaunted sex, she has always seemed so detached from it too. It is not inconceivable to say that she was a victim of rape at an early age.

R29 She put down the dancers most likely because they sued her after the movie came out. I believe she had to pay them money, even though they knew what the deal was upfront. She gave them each expensive gold rolex watches at the end of the tour also.

I can believe it, but I don't know why she is coming out with this now. She doesn't seem like the kind of person who would be devastated by it. I don't think she has much in the way of emotions. She just seems like a very calculating person.

Never a fan, but I lost all respect for her as a professional when I learned here on the DL about all her blatant ripoffs. She's been sued, and lost.

This story seems like yet another desperate attention grab.

R31 - because she's such an opportunistic person for publicity, she would have spoke up before now.

God knows she's done everything else. It just doesn't ring true - particularly to mention it so casually.

She lies - a lot.

R32 They did get paid for the tour, and also got expensive gold watches from Madonna. After the documentary became a hit, they sued her for profits from the film.

As someone on another board observed:

Next, we will hear that poor Madonna was molested by a relative, as she rifles through that time-tested bag of tricks has-beens trot out to wring those last few moments of air-time out of their fading name-recognition.

"Raped on the roof of a building I was dragged up to with a knife in my back, and had my apartment broken into three times." How did this sentence fragment even get published? Also, was the knife "in" your back, or "to" your back?

by Anonymousreply 3810/05/2013

R36 - I never thought of this before - but she knew ahead of time they were going to be filming the tour and she needed to have "color" in both ways, so that's why she got those guys from the Sound Factory dancefloor. (also because they could vogue better than her)

Never thought of that - she picked them just so she could spotlight and make money off of them.

Genius - and also unkind and unjust.

Yeah someone gets raped and then turns around and uses sex/becomes overly sexual to get what they want and feel like they're in control. That's so hard to believe. This never happens, right?

Some of you are either incredibly sheltered or stupid, or both.

Making fun of her for being raped (even if you don't believe it), like whoever said it sucked that the guy didn't finish off the job? Newsflash, comments like that don't say anything about Madonna. It does however say a lot about you. Get some help, seriously, you're fucked in the head.

And I can't even stand Madonna.

by Anonymousreply 4310/05/2013

Yeah this is old news. I think its in an interview or something she did back in the 90s. It was also in one of the biographies on her. She talked about how after it happened it prompted her to make sure she never allowed herself to be that vulnerable again or something.

r11 this is my vague recollection of what r2 is referring to:

one of her backup singers/dancers was roofied and raped after going to a bar. the girl was in tears and told Madonna what happened (featured in the Truth or Dare documentary) and Madonna could not have been more cold, disinterested or unhelpful if she tried.

You would think that someone who had been raped would have had more sympathy for someone who experienced something similar.

You can't believe anything Madonna says. She said that when she came to New York she was so destitute that she ate out of garbage cans. The poor dear would find the remains of a fast meal in a dumpster; being a health-conscious vegetarian, she would leave the remains of the burger and eat what was left of the fries. That's really what she said. Her brother called her bullshit on that; he said that both he and his father supported when she came to New York on her quest for stardom. She's a liar.

by Anonymousreply 6210/06/2013


You have it half-right. It was the hairdresser who got drugged and raped. However, she wasn't telling Madonna about it, she was telling the two backup singers who sat there, half-listening and not giving a shit.

by Anonymousreply 6310/06/2013

Don't forget Melanie sent her money for years and years when Poppa C's allowance would run out...and Madonna has never forgotten that. Leos can be very loyal, you know. That's why Melanie is always within Madonna's inner circle and Madge will give lots of work to Melanie's husband (not that he isn't talented on his own merit, but it allows them to live very well).

True story? Who knows but I'm inclined to believe her. I'm not a fan of Madonna, but NYC really was rougher in those years. It is not hard to imagine a young middle-class girl from Michigan thinking she can be all adventurous, risk-taking and "edgy" in her new exciting NYC home, and learning some hard and mean lessons about that.

Who cares if the makeup artist was unattractive and fat. Vadge was a bitch then and she's still one now over 20 years later.

by Anonymousreply 10410/09/2013

Uber Vadge saddos will know this revelation originally appeared in an NME interview back in the dark ages of 1995 in her Celine Dion wannabe with Jennifer Aniston hair phase. She was still wonderfully cunty and not the fake she is now then taking potshots at Mariah Carey.

The actual tale is recounted in great detail in hack director Abel Ferrara's unwatchable movie Dangerous Game. He gets the only natural performance out of her because the dumb bitch doesn't realize the camera is on her for most of the time.

On the one hand I don't blame her for talking about this cause only hardcore fans would know. But would she just go away for once? In the 80s she had mystique, now in the internet era she is unbearable. It's sickening how most of these people can't survive without fame but she is the absolute worst attention seeker ever and is gradually eroding her legacy.

So boring! Hating on Madonna doesn't make your lives any better and or make you right.

She is a bona fide megastar who has a huge spread in Harpar's Bazaar after 30+ years in the business. This issue will cause a big blip in sales and website traffic. Where are her contemporaries? She's not a saint but a damn good artist who isn't afraid to fight for what she deeply believes in. No regrets and she isn't looking for your sympathy.

Those of you who have such disdain for her should get in line because she isn't losing any sleep over your irrational loathing. In fact, your relentless discussion of her is a testament to her legacy. She's busy spreading her rEVOLution of LOVE and this fan has first-class ticket on board!!!

R108 Being a "bona fide megastar" means she's above criticism for being a fucking bitch the last 30+ years? How about NO. You're right she's not a saint-in fact she's a fucking sociopath. Vadge sure as hell is not "a damn good artist". She's a fraud, a fake, a phony and has produced cheap garbage "music" throughout her entire career. You say that Vadge "fights for what she deeply believes in" and you're right-she has fought hard to be rich and famous while using and stepping over others to achieve those selfish goals.

Vadge IS losing sleep over the thought of becoming irrelevant and old. She was not happy that her last album tanked.

You Vadge stans are a sad bunch, defending this parasitic witch even though she doesn't give a damn about you.
