On this day in music history: December 4, 1990 - Madonna appears on the ABC News program “Nightline” and is interviewed by Forrest Sawyer. During the interview, ABC will show the controversial video for “Justify My Love” in its entirety. Though MTV has banned clip from airplay, it will not stop the singles’ upward chart momentum. Instead, the video (directed by Jean Baptiste-Mondino) will be issued as a single on VHS tape and will sell over 1 million copies. “Justify My Love” will hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 on January 5, 1991, spending 2 weeks at the top.
This bitch is so fucking boss and beyond her years here. A real interview with real questions and Madge stays afloat and slays the entire time.
