On December 15 2005, the second of a two-part interview with Madonna conducted by Molly Meldrum aired on Australian morning show Sunrise on Channel Seven.
Meldrum had been one of the earliest champions of Madonna’s music in the land down under, with his influential music video show Countdown playing a significant role in Burning Up reaching #13 on the Australian singles chart in 1984.
Madonna returned the favour by granting Meldrum exclusive interviews throughout the 80’s and 90’s, culminating with this 2005 interview to promote her album, Confessions On A Dance Floor.
Guess what? Madonna is popular in Australia-she honors the memory of INXS singer Michael Hutchence!
I miss these album interviews with Kurt Loder and Molly Meldrum. She stopped giving them when she left Warner. I mean she did small interviews for her 13th, 14th and 15th studio albums, but not like before where she would let them go behind the scenes and have access footage. Madge has became very reclusive and downright weird since MDNA.
