When I Was Nine...


... Madonna was dancing her ass off in this fantastic knitwear by Keith Haring. When I was nine, I never even heard of Madonna. I think I saw my first real movie at the cinema that year. I was in love with E.T. and not Madonna. A bit like 2010... not in love with Madonna.



Photography by Eric Watson, back in 1983

this book is hysterical! I wonder if you've got it.
I got it a year ago in london for 4 Pounds. it contains all available shit from 80's smash hits articles including a very early madge interview with these photos as the visual (down)side

Funny you mention that book. I don't own it, but in my basement I still have piles of Smash Hits magazines. Most of them from 1987 till 1993. Thanks for that suggestion!
