Madonna: I’m Going to Tell You a Secret

I happened to see that there was a programme about Madonna on Channel 4 and flicked over just in time to catch the start of it. I didn’t know it was a full blown documentary on Madonna, I thought it was going to be a short programme.

I’ve been a Madonna fan since her very first hit in the UK back in the ‘huh hmms’ when I was DJ’ing at a local youth club. I only have to hear Holiday and it takes me back to my ‘yoof’.

I don’t usually watch programmes of this sort, but was soon hooked. I think Madonna is one of the most astute business women in the Musical industry and she always knows to press the right buttons. She’s not affraid to speak her mind, or admit her wrongs.

I was totally blown away by some of the dancing in the documentary. After watching it, I compared it to the recent (ish) Moulin Rouge but with all the songs from Madonna. The editing of the documentary was great and I will certainly think about getting the DVD in the near future.

There is more information on the IMDb site

The documentary follows a complete tour from start to finish and includes footage of her family, the dancers and band members. The music is Madonna at her best. And before you say I am tone deaf, look at the crouds, look at their reactions. It was one heck of a stage production. The choreography was amazing as was the stanard of the various dancers.

You don’t just get to hear an artist singing on that tour, you got hit with a stunning audio and visual stage production. I would loved to have gone to see one of the concerts, and I won’t make the mistake of not going the next time.

  • Then you’ll like this little story Chris…
    “Nov 28th: LITTLE Britain stars Andy and Lou switch on the Christmas lights with pop star Madonna and Stella McCartney last night.
    The comic pair — David Walliams, 34, and Matt Lucas, 31 — joined Who’s That Girl? singer Madge in London’s Mayfair outside the flagship Stella McCartney store, owned by the 34-year-old designer.
    The unlikely trio rallied round for their pal and turned on her fairy lights, with Andy dressed as Father Christmas and Lou as an elf.
    Madonna, 47, even gave Lou a push in his wheelchair.”
    Apparently, poor old Madge hardly got a look in as everyone wnated to see Andy & Lou!
