Yesterday, in what had to have been one of the most surreal professional experience I’ve ever had, I got to interview Madonna. To be honest, I barely even remember the 12 minutes and 20 seconds I was sitting beside her in a hotel room. From the second she introduced herself, it was all a nervous blur. I just kept wanting to say, DO YOU KNOW WHO YOU ARE!? But somehow I managed to make it through the interview without resorting to sadly truthful proclamations (“Like a Prayer” was my coming out song! I wore down three “Immaculate Collection” CDs and had to keep getting new ones!) and now I can cross that off the shallow end of my bucket list. Full interview up on indieWIRE shortly, but the full audio is now online below.
