Lucky Star

Saturday 9: Lucky Star (1983)

1. Have you ever wished upon a star?

Oh yes!!
I still do, every day.
I'm a dreamer. Life can always be better.

2. In the 1980s, Madonna considered her wrist bangles one of her fashion trademarks. What's one of your fashion trademarks?

I'm not so sure it's still in fashion, but apart from my usual earplugs I have one at the top of my right ear. When you don't want to see it, it can be ignored, but those who are open for something like that see it immediately.

3. Though she got good grades, Madonna could be disruptive at school, known for turning cartwheels in the halls between classes. Can you do a cartwheel?

Yes, I can. I still can. But I've never done one between classes.

4. Her high grade point average earned her a dance scholarship to the University of Michigan, home of the Wolverines. Do you follow college football?

No, we don't have that here in The Netherlands.

5. Madonna co-starred in the movie version of Dick Tracy. Do you enjoy comics?

Yes, but not all.

6. She played Argentinian First Lady Eva Peron in the biopic, Evita and directed a movie about Wallis Simpson. What famous 20th century woman do you wish you could meet/could have met?
Our former queen, Queen Beatrix, and her mother.

7. Madonna authored a children's book called The English Roses. Tell us about a book that had a big impact on you when you were a kid.

Heidi, the tale of a young child going to the mountains to meet her grandfather who was very aloof, but who grew to like her and cherish her. She met people who accepted her and didn't want to change her in something she was not.
The freedom of it all was very appealing to me.

8. One of Madonna's "vocal idols" is Ella Fitzgerald. Who is your all-time favorite female singer?

Nina Simone.

9. Madonna once did a Pepsi commercial. What beverages are in your refrigerator right now?

Nothing. They are outside because it's cold enough to keep them there.
