WHAT REALLY HAPPENED THE NIGHT MADONNA AND MICHAEL JACKSON WENT OUT
Oops! When Madonna reminisced about her “date” with Michael Jackson on the MTV Video Awards, she seemed to forget a few details. Back in 1991, Madonna was hungry to promote her documentary, “Truth or Dare” and Michael Jackson was about to release his album “Dangerous.” Madonna called Michael and suggested they maximize their publicity by attending the Academy Awards together. They met for a “private” dinner at THE IVY a week before to plan the event. On Oscar night Michael wore a diamond brooch and two gloves and Madonna was in her Marilyn Monroe phase with platinum hair and white fur. They made a big deal out of holding hands and posing for photographers, but the after party at Spago told the real story. Once inside, Madonna got bored and ended up sitting on her ex Warren Beatty’s lap while Michael huddled up with Diana Ross. After the party Madonna dropped off Michael in a hurry and hooked up with John Enos. So much for Madonna and Michael’s friendship.
