Madonna reveals truth about Like A Virgin

Madonna has finally talked about the Like A Virgin performance at the 1984 Video Music Awards, when MTV viewers were treated to a full display of what Madonna was wearing under her dress.

Madonna admits it was improvised after one of her stilettos fell off.

'Well, I'll just pretend I meant to do this,' she said.

'And I dove on the floor and I rolled around and, as I reached for the shoe, the dress went up. And the underpants were showing.'

Her former manager Freddy DeMann says: 'Was it perfect? No, but it worked.'

Les Garland, former executive vice president of programming at MTV says: 'I think we all know she had a few drinks, because she had to get up the nerve to crawl around like she did. She stole the show.'

But at the time, many industry people felt her performance was a disaster.

Her longtime publicist Liz Rosenberg says, 'People came up to me and told me her career was over before it started.'

Huey Lewis recalls that his longtime agent Dan Weiner scoffed and said, 'This gal, Madonna - this is not going to happen.'

Her manager states it ended up working, but in truth he had yelled at her backstage with what was that and your career is over. Obviously that wasn't the case and he continued to manage her throughout the height of her success until about the Ray of Light time when he started to move into retirement.

Like a Virgin made her a star! What and who Madonna will always be to me is Pure Raw Emotion and Talent! She has absolutely nothing in common with the rest of her Eighties contemporaries! While R.E.M., Prince and U2 are on the decline, Madonna will Forever Remain a Ray of Light who Lives to Tell and Takes a Bow in Her Music, American Life and Confessions on a Dance Floor! Madonna Forever!


It was raw!!


And where is Huey Lewis now?
