Madonna on Letterman in 1994
In its column called “This week in music history“, the Ottawa Sun recalls that today in 1994 Madonna appeared on Late Show With David Letterman causing huge headaches to CBS censors.
The network deleted 13 offending words from the audio track before the show aired.
An obviously annoyed Letterman told the singer “people don’t want language like that coming into their living room.” Madonna also handed Letterman a pair of her panties and told him to sniff them. He stuffed them in a desk drawer.
