Love, the anti-christ

[Warning: Possibly Offensive Language Ahead]

On March 31st of 1994, a highly-charged Madonna appeared as a guest on the Late Show with David Letterman. Over the course of the now-infamous interview she said the word “fuck” a record thirteen times; called Letterman himself a “sick fuck”; asked the host to smell some underwear she was holding; refused to leave the stage when asked; and was jeered by the audience. Her behaviour resulted in numerous complaints, much discussion, and extremely high viewing figures.

A fortnight later, on April 12th – Letterman’s birthday – Madonna faxed the following note to his office.
