On September 8 1994, Madonna presented the award for Video of the Year at the MTV VMA’s. She was escorted onstage by David Letterman, poking fun at their supposed feud following Madonna’s infamous profanity propelled appearance on Letterman earlier that year.
The appearance was intended to generate buzz for her soon-to-be-released single, “Secret” and its accompanying album, Bedtime Stories.
On July 1 1988, Madonna made a surprise unscheduled appearance on NBC-TV’s Late Night With David Letterman. Sandra Bernhard was David’s scheduled guest.
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.
