On August 14 2012, Madonna’s first make-up artist, and close friend, @debimazar spoke to Allure.com’s beauty editor, Sophia Panych about what Madonna’s hair and make-up was like for The Virgin Tour in 1985: "Her hair was long and wild, and she had just had her bangs cut. She had this thick, curly, gorgeous hair—thicker than anyone else I knew—and it didn’t really need much. I just tried to make sure her bangs nicely framed her face and make sure it moved well, rather than creating a polished look. Really, it was more about the music and the show. We just wanted her to look good, get on stage, and do the damn tour. Plus, she was in her twenties: Her skin was good, and as long as you had bright lipstick and good hair, the crowd didn’t care—they just wanted to dance" The Virgin Tour 🔥👑💃❤🎬 @madonna #madonna #mlvc #thevirgintour #madonnatours #madonnalive #madonnamusic #queenofpop #virgintour #thevirgintour1985 #queenm #rebelheart #staffordgrl21 #80smadonna #madonna80s #80stours #madonna80squeen #rebel #iconic #madonnasrevolution #icon #thevirgintour #whenmadonnaruledtheworld #bowdownbitches #supportmadonna #bossbitch #bitchimmadonna #slayqueenslay #allhailthequeen #queensreign #nobodyfuckswiththequeen #madonna60 Info thanks to Today in Madonna History

1990: Madonna gets banned by MTV. With her performance of “Like a Virgin” at the 1984 VMAs, Madonna helped build MTV’s brand as a place for the cool kids to escape from adults’ conservative glares, and became one of its absolute biggest stars. But the network couldn’t handle Madonna’s “Justify My Love” music video, which featured what was essentially a pansexual orgy with her then-boyfriend Tony Ward and some other scantily clad men and women. Today, “Justify My Love” would just be a very, very sexy music video. Back then, though, it was something that would threaten the boys and girls of America. In this round of Madonna vs. MTV, Madonna certainly came out on top. Since MTV banned the video, Madonna released it as a VHS single, the first song ever released in this format. And who could resist spending a few bucks on video too scandalous for MTV, featuring America’s most famous pop star? No one. The video, packaged to play up its supposed seediness with an all-black cover and a sticker sealing the case, went platinum four times over and sold over a million copies at $9.98 a pop. In December 1990, Madonna appeared on Nightline and discussed the video on with Forrest Sawyer. During the interview, she addressed the double-standard at the heart of the ban. “If we’re going to have censorship, let’s not be hypocrites about it. Let’s not have double standards. We already have these videos that display degradation to women and violence that are played 24 hours a day, but yet they don’t want a video playing that deals with sex between two consenting adults,” she said. - Refinery29 ❤👑📸☄🔥💃@madonna #madonna #madonna80squeen #madonna80s #icon #80smadonna #madonnastyle #musicicon #musicroyalty #madonnamusic #madonnafans #staffordgrl21 #madonnasrevolution #iconic #bossbitch #bitchimmadonna #slayqueenslay #allhailthequeen #madonnaphotos #rebel #madonnapictures #bowdownbitches #mlvc  #madonnalove #whenmadonnaruledtheworld #supportmadonna #womeniadmire #madonna60

1989: Madonna “confuses” Pepsi with the “Like a Prayer” music video. The Scandal: Madonna’s music videos were works of art. Sometimes, corporations don’t quite get those works of art. Such was the case with the video for “Like a Prayer.” The video is infused with religious imagery, including Madonna dancing in front of burning crosses and kissing a Black saint. “Like a Prayer” (the song, not the video) was initially used in a differently-themed Pepsi ad starring Madonna. But after the music video garnered controversy — including a condemnation from the Vatican — Pepsi cancelled its contract with the singer. "When you've got an ad that confuses people or concerns people, it just makes sense that that ad goes away," a spokesperson said. You know what didn’t go away? Madonna’s lifelong fight with the Vatican and her complicated relationship with Catholicism, which was only just beginning. Madonna’s Response: She responded with clever, subtle shade. She walked the red carpet in a bright red dress, carrying a Coke can. Madonna was allowed to keep her initial $5 million fee for the planned endorsement deal. Pepsi seemed to miss the point. The video was supposed to confuse people. Director Mary Lambert told Rolling Stone that her intention with the imagery — including the burning crosses — was to “force people to reimagine their visual references and really root out their prejudices.” - Refinery29 ❤👑📸☄🔥💃@madonna #madonna #madonna80squeen #madonna80s #icon #80smadonna #madonnastyle #musicicon #musicroyalty #madonnamusic #madonnafans #staffordgrl21 #madonnasrevolution #iconic #bossbitch #bitchimmadonna #slayqueenslay #allhailthequeen #madonnaphotos #rebel #madonnapictures #bowdownbitches #mlvc  #madonnalove #whenmadonnaruledtheworld #supportmadonna #womeniadmire #madonna60

1984: Madonna makes the best of a wardrobe malfunction. Some might have stopped singing. Some might have bent down, fixed their stiletto, and moved on. Not Madonna. When her heel slipped off during the very first live performance of “Like a Virgin” at the inaugural MTV Video Music Awards, Madonna responded by squirming on the stage floor in a wedding dress. To the crowd, Madonna appeared as if she was a woman losing her virginity on her wedding night on the stage floor. And to aghast critics, this stunt signaled the end of her then-nascent career. They couldn’t have been more wrong, and this is roundly considered the moment Madonna became a global superstar. Her ad lib VMAs performance signaled the start of a trend: Madonna doing something wild and unexpected, and then watching nonchalantly as her fame reached a higher echelon. She also took the VMAs to new heights, cementing MTV’s legacy as a place of provocation. Madonna’s response: On an appearance with Jay Leno on The Tonight Show a full 28 years after the fact, Madonna finally revealed the cause of her scandalous MTV stage-floor dance. It was actually the byproduct of a wardrobe malfunction. “I was standing at the top of a wedding cake, as one does, and I walked down these steps, which were the tiers of a wedding cake. And I lost my shoe. I lost my white stiletto. And I thought, ‘Oh god, how am I gonna get that? It’s over there and I’m on TV. So I thought, well, I’ll just pretend I meant to do this and I dove on to the floor and I rolled around and I reached for the shoe. And as I reached for the shoe, the dress went up. And the underpants were showing…. I didn’t mean to.' Madonna could have cleared this up in 1984. Instead, she let the mystery linger. “Like a Virgin” would figure into her mythology for years. During a stop in Toronto in her 1990 Blonde Ambition tour, the Canadian police threatened to arrest Madonna if she pretended to masturbate on stage. She refused to alter her show, and performed “Virgin” as she’d intended – all three minutes of faux masturbation and all. - Refinery29 ❤👑📸☄🔥💃@madonna #madonna #madonna80squeen #madonna80s #icon #80smadonna #madonnastyle #musicicon #musicroyalty
