I know you’re probably suffering from a bit of Madonna fatigue but Towleroad has received some exclusive, never-before-seen photos of her Madgesty that just need to be shared. The photos were taken on September 7, 1990 by our ever-resourceful correspondent Alan L. and show Madonna relaxing after a performance of “Vogue” as Marie Antoinette at the Wiltern Theater in L.A. for an AIDS Project Los Angeles benefit. This was just before the release of her first concert documentary Truth or Dare.
Madonna is seen here with then (rumored) boyfriend Tony Ward as well as Donna DeLory and dancers from her tour. Alan says: “After I took the first two photos Madonna spoke to me. Well, in a manner of speaking. She swore at me. She said, ‘You fucking stop taking my picture. You keep doin’ that. You didn’t even ask me.’ She’s right, I didn’t. I didn’t want to barge up and interrupt her table conversation with Tony Ward and the others. And I was afraid she’d say no. I snapped another picture as she got up to leave. You can clearly see Ricki Lake looking on in admiration.”
