Dinner With Madonna, raw interview footage, 1991



So! Madonna. This is the week we will hear MDNA. I predict a hodgepodge of tracks that most of us will rearrange in playlists to make a solid pop album (meaning, err, buhbye Give Me All Your Luvin'!). While I was kvetching today about this vital event, I happened to catch 41 minutes of raw footage (below) from Kurt Loder's interview with her in summer 1991. She was promoting Truth Or Dare and the topics they cover are reminiscent of the way Lady Gaga has captivated the world's stage the past few years. In '91, everyone was talking Madonna, from feminists to college students taking classes on her career and impact. Be sure to hear the final seconds, which are classic behind the scene diva brilliance.



Final thought: WHERE IS KURT LODER? Why has he stopped interviewing pop and
rock stars?

Poor Gimme All Your Lovin'...c'mon, it's not THAT bad! I think it's kinda cheeky, actually...

Loder's drunk in an alley with Courtney Love right about now (just kidding). Doesn't he own MTV or Rolling Stone now?!?

Kurt Loder is doing movie reviews now. He recently put out a book of them. There's a good podcast where Chris Connelly interviews him about the book, and they also reminisce over the years at MTV. Get it here.

Oh cool! Thanks for that info on Kurt. He doesn't really look that different now.
