letterman

On March 31, 1994, Madonna guested on CBS-TV’s Late Show With David Letterman: during the 20-minute interview, she says the word “fuck” 13 times, makes obscene remarks and wisecracks, refuses to leave the set and is rude to her host; her lewd and vulgar behavior causes a public and media controversy and Letterman also expresses his displeasure by her appearance on his show.

On  March 29, 1985, Madonna’s “Into The Groove” video (from Desperately Seeking Susan) premiered on MTV.

Lyrics:

And you can dance
For inspiration
Come on
I’m waiting

Chorus:

Get into the groove
Boy you’ve got to prove
Your love to me, yeah
Get up on your feet, yeah
Step to the beat
Boy what will it be

Music can be such a revelation
Dancing around you feel the sweet sensation
We might be lovers if the rhythm’s right
I hope this feeling never ends tonight

Bridge:

Only when I’m dancing can I feel this free
At night I lock the doors, where no one else can see
I’m tired of dancing here all by myself
Tonight I wanna dance with someone else

(chorus)

Gonna get to know you in a special way
This doesn’t happen to me every day
Don’t try to hide it love wears no disguise
I see the fire burning in your eyes

(bridge)
(chorus)

Intermediate:

Live out your fantasy here with me
Just let the music set you free
Touch my body, and move in time
Now I now you’re mine

You’ve got to

(chorus lyrics)
(bridge)
(intermediate)

Now I know you’re mine, now I know you’re mine
Now I know you’re mine, now I know you’re mine
You’ve got to

(chorus)
(chorus lyrics)
(repeat and fade)

During a Twitter Q&A Madonna held on March 27, 2012, to promote her new album, deadmau5 tweeted her:

“You’re a role model to 100’s of millions. You have a powerful voice, EDM could use your positive influence, not ‘molly’ talk.”

Madonna responded by tweeting an old picture of herself wearing Mickey Mouse ears, captioned:

“From one mouse to another, I don’t support drug use and I never have. I was referring to the song called Have You Seen Molly written by my friend Cedric Gervais who I almost worked with on my album.”

Deadmau5 replied:

“Fair enough, i was just voicing my concerns as i usually do. +1 respect for clearing it up personally.”
