Ladies and Gentlemen, thank you for coming to my show. The night is young, and the show, has just begun.
This all started in 2012 with a little bit of CUNTY MADONNA SHADE...as does everything in my life. I have
been a fan for 30+ years and I have seen every tour since the Virgin Tour. When she announced tour dates
for the MDNA show, I noticed that the Stade DeFrance date in Paris was on my birthday, which also
happens to be Bastille Day, the French July 4th. I had always wanted to go to Paris for this joint holiday and
now that Madonna was there, it was a trifecta that couldn't be missed.
I decided that I was going to silkscreen my own shirts for the shows and I set about jotting down phrases
that I thought would make me stand out, in hopes of getting in the Golden Circle. I ended up with 2 I liked:
"NOT A MONSTER" and "CUNTY MADONNA SHADE". I had screens made, I bought ink, blank shirts and I
set out to make my Madonna tees.
I wore my "NOT A MONSTER" tee in Paris. I had VIP seats and when I got to my designated area I was
mortified to find that I was up off the floor in box seats. The area was very lovely and the seats were fine, but
I was so far away! I spent a lot of my time begging to simply be let onto the floor but, I was denied.
The next day, I followed the tour to Hyde Park in London. This time I had a VIP ticket for the front section of
the field, but not in the coveted Golden Circle. When the warm up DJ, Martin Solveig, started playing, I
noticed that the jumbotron video screens had turned on. As everyone rushed forward towards the stage, I
was left with a lot of space around me to dance. I immediately started scouting for where the cameramen
were. I turned my back to the stage and started dancing when suddenly, 50,000+ erupted in cheers. I
turned back around to see that I was dancing on the video screens. After the show, there were a lot of
people wanting to take pictures with me and several asked where they could buy a shirt. I gave out my
email address and said that I would make shirts for anyone who emailed me.
Then the tweets started.
@Pablo942000: One question from last night is, who was the guy with Cunty Madonna Shade T-shirt?
that said'Cunty Madonna Shade'? Everyone loved him!! xD
Georg Chapman @GeorgKILLS Forgot that at Madge yesterday a guy in the audience had a t-shirt on that
said 'cunty madonna shade' lmao.
Emma @Emma_Dawson1 I'VE JUST REMEMBERED the bloke at Hyde Park who had the 'Cunty Madonna
Shade' t-shirt on! I ADORE HIM.
Milly @millyys “cunty madonna shade” fucking AMAZING
SocialDystopia Oh and the guy in the Cunty Madonna Shade T-Shirt and Wellies dancing away was
amazing. The crowd camera flashed to him so many times.
TheCinematic @TheCinematic Just saw a dude on my block wearing a shirt that read, "CUNTY MADONNA
SHADE". Twitterverse...what is the meaning of this?!
Katie Louise Smith @_katesss I don't know who he is, but he is my fave.
Kylie Minogue blew me a kiss and pointed at me from the sound booth while mouthing, "I love your shirt!" I
imagined Guy Oseary emerging from a cloud of smoke and handing me Golden Circle tickets, but that never
happened. 3 countries and 9 shows later, I never got in the Golden Circle.
I didn't really know what a tweet was at the time, but when I got back to the US and saw all the photos and
comments about me online, I decided to try and sell the shirts. But I only had 2 designs, not really enough to
start a business with, so I set about jotting down funny words or phrases that I heard in my everyday life.
After 2 years and a lot of samples, changes, websites and design challenges, I finally have my site up and
My goal now, is to get one of my shirts on Madonna. She has been an inspiration to me and I wouldn't be
the successful video editor I am today if I hadn't studied every second of her videos repeatedly over the
years. I grew up in a small town in Oklahoma and I dreamed of one day making it to the big city to make
a name for myself. Madonna was my example of how to do that. I studied dance for many years and
thought I was going to be a dancer, but in film school I discovered editing, which is essentially dancing with
your hands. Today, it ain't no big deal to say, I love her still.
Thank you for shopping with me. I hope you all enjoy your shirts and I encourage you to cut them up,
bedazzle them, and customize your CUNT[EES] anyway you can. Then take a photo and send it to me
so I can add you to our instagram page!
Everybody is a star, you know who you are, this is your chance to shine!
