On September 17 1998, Madonna released a statement against the World Vaisnava Association’s criticism of her MTV performance: “The essence of purity and divinity is non-judgement… they should practice what they preach… if they’re so pure, why are they watching MTV?”

Madonna’s skin and makeup are so beautiful in the last photo.  I love her hair like this, it reminds me of Courteney Cox’s hair towards the end of Friends.  Beautiful!  I often wonder if we will ever see Madonna with dark hair again (and I don’t mean a wig).
