On July 5 1987,  Madonna was interviewed by Jane Pauley on NBC-TV’s “Today” and caused a controversy when she referred to her hometown of Bay City, Michigan as “a smelly little town” – a comment that enraged the citizens of Bay City.  On July 7, Madonna performed at the Pontiac Silverdome in Pontiac, Michigan and apologized to 42,000 fans for the comments she made about her hometown during the interview.

One thought on “Today in Madonna History: July 5, 1987

  1. Going from The First Album to Who’s That Girl?-was a single step on a long journey but going from Who’s That Girl? all the way to Rebel Heart is a giant leap forward! Along the way for Madonna, there has been a certain and hidden vulnerability and sadness that drives her to be the biggest star in the world and the best artist ever in rock & roll! Hail Madonna, Full of grace!
