Madonna! (Yes, Madonna!)
Another item on my bucket list was catching Madonna live. Last March, I had pestered my friend Monique in Paris to grab me a ticket to Mother Madge’s gig at Bercy.
That same day, I ran an errand at Place Vendome for a friend, and just my luck—I discover from a mob of people in front of the Ritz that Madonna was about to leave the hotel! A mix of paparazzi, curious tourists, and die-hard Madge fans had been waiting for two hours to catch her. Thanks to my minute size, I was able to squeeze in and weasel my way to the front of the crowd to catch her graceful, makeup-less exit! I posted the pic I took on Facebook and Twitter as soon as I could!
My Madonna sighting brought the concert experience to a whole new level. Imagine, I was just a few feet away from her earlier that day! And I really thought I knew what to expect from her concert as I’ve seen a lot of her videos but I was wrong. She has so much power live—I could not help from dancing like a lunatic, her energy is unparalleled! She was over an hour late to the gig, but the show was worth the wait (and not without an MJ Tribute either—a doppelganger of his made a cameo onstage). I especially love how she now totes an electric guitar for her gigs, she can even pull off “Rock Star” with aplomb. That woman is a force of nature, and more!
After the show, I was pleasantly surprised to see Marco and Jackie Antonio who managed to grab some last-minute tickets to catch the gig. From Manila, all the way to Paris, Madonna fans unite!
