On June 21 1993, Madonna attended the New York premiere of Sleepless In Seattle. She was joined by her friends Jenny Shimizu, Rosie O’Donnell and her brother Christopher Ciccone.
On May 15 1993, Madonna’s Fever hit number-one on Billboard’s Hot Dance/Club chart in the USA. Fever was the fourth single from the Erotica album and was the b-side to Bad Girl in North America.
On January 30 1993, the second single from Madonna’s Erotica album, Deeper and Deeper, hit #7 on the Billboard Hot 100 in the USA.
Slant Magazine ranked Deeper and Deeper at number 33 on their list of 100 Best Singles of the 1990s:
“Among Madonna’s finest achievements, the angsty pop anthem Deeper and Deeper is both an acute distillation of Erotica ’s smut-glam decadence and the singer’s lifelong blond ambition.”
On January 14 1993, Madonna was featured in a 2-part interview with Bryant Gumbel on NBC-TV’s Today to promote the film Body of Evidence.
Madonna seemed quite fond of Gumbel. If they were to get any closer she’d be sitting on his knee. And note the conspicuously missing gap between her teeth. Hmmm. On second thought, it may have had something to do with the filming of her next movie, Dangerous Game…what do you think?
