Today in Madonna History: February 20, 1995

Bedtime Story (live at Brits) 550 brit awards 1995 backstage 550

On February 20 1995, Madonna performed Bedtime Story live for the first and only time at the Brit Awards. The performance was set to a remix of the song by Junior Vasquez. Madonna wore a white Versace dress and long hair extensions, an image similar to her 1995 Versace advertisement campaign spread.

Madonna invited Björk to feature in the performance but Björk declined the offer, later stating: “I was supposed to get [Madonna’s] personal number and call her up, but it just didn’t feel right. I’d love to meet her accidentally, really drunk in a bar. It’s just all that formality that confuses me.”

  1. One of Madonna’s very best artistic Statements, the title cut to Bedtime Stories asks us to “get unconscious” and get “All Still Wet!”-because the song is about surviving media-death, something she’d later explore in Drowned World/Substitute for Love, Gone and Joan of Arc. Yet here Madonna is and will always be-a survivor in the best sense of terms! Well done Madonna!
