Rob Lowe missed his chance with Madonna

It seems Rob Lowe wanted to sleep with Madonna  - not dance with her, as he writes in 'Love Life,' the sequel to his bestselling 2011 memoir, 'Stories I Only Tell My Friends.'

The Brat Pack star, who says the new book (due out April 8) is racier than his first; it tells of meeting Madonna after a show in Los Angeles in 1984.

'She was cute and she was young and she was single, and so I sat front-row.... she was a revelation,' Lowe writes. 'Madonna would like to see you backstage,’ a security guard said as the house lights came up.'

'She had flawless skin and eyes that imparted secrets....she asked what movie I was working on and so I told her a little about ‘St. Elmo’s Fire,’ which I had just finished. ‘I play the bad boy,’ I said. Madonna just smiled. She seemed to like that.'

Months later, they made a date to meet up at the Palladium, 'a giant dance club that was filled with rabid ‘boy-toy’ doppelganger fans of both sexes. It was a madhouse.' After a harrowing trek through the 'grabbing and pawing' crowd, Lowe reached the VIP section.

'Madonna and I were discussing where we would sneak off to at the end of the evening when she suddenly jumped up and said, ‘Let’s dance!’.... ‘I’ll wait here,’ I said. 'Suit yourself,’ she replied as she waded beyond the velvet rope into the fray.' But, unlike the free-spirited singer, Lowe had no desire to rub elbows with his fans. He writes: 'You’re crazy,’ I said, half meaning it. ‘No I’m not,’ she said . . . ‘I’m just not going to let success f–k up my fun.'

Lowe is coming to Midtown to sign copies of his book on April 9 at Barnes & Noble on Fifth Avenue.
