The title song for Die Another Day was written and performed by Madonna, who also had a cameo in the film as Verity, a fencing instructor.

On November 21 1992, Madonna was named Most Popular International Solo Female Artist at the 2nd annual Australian Music Awards.

The above posted photo has nothing to do with the Australian Music Awards, but since Madonna did not attend, here’s a beautiful photo from that period in Madonna’s career.  Gorgeous!  

Today in Madonna History: November 20, 1993

On November 20 1993, Madonna – Live Down Under: The Girlie Show (taped November 19th at Sydney Cricket Ground) was broadcast on HBO-TV. In Australia, Madonna postponed a scheduled concert at the Sydney Cricket Ground due to severe rain.

Recording of the November 19th show had been intended to serve as both a practice run for the following night, and as a safety show in the event of technical difficulties or cancellation of the November 20th concert. With Madonna apparently satisfied with the safety footage captured on the 19th, neither the December 3rd show at the Cricket Ground nor the rescheduled date (December 4th) served to provide supplemental footage for the eventual VHS/laserdisc release. The only notable differences between the HBO broadcast and the released version were some alternate camera angles and additional audio mixing.

On November 19 2003, a new wax figure model of Madonna was unveiled at Madame Tussaud’s Museum in New York City.

Have you ever seen a wax figure model of Madonna at Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum? What “version” of Madonna did you see? Did you like the interpretation?
