OH, THAT MADONNA. GIVE HER A FEW reels of film, and she’ll strip off her shirt, cavort in bed with naked people and simulate sex with bottles. Then she’ll sell tickets.
The Madonna gotta-sees at last week’s L.A. premiere of Truth or Dare, the very personal documentary of her 1990 Blond Ambition tour, couldn’t have been happier, of course. On hand for the show were Valerie Bertinelli and Eddie Van Halen, k.d. lang and 1,000 others.
Blond ambition gave way to brand, however, when Madonna arrived at the party with dark-dyed locks, then hit the dance floor with a crowd of muscle boys, drag queens and fishnetted females. Alas, old pal Michael Jackson was a no-show, and newcomer Gerardo forgot his manners. Asked if he’d ever make a movie like Madonna‘s, rock’s hunk of the moment ungallantly replied, “It would be much more explicit than the one she did, I’m sure.”
