“VH1 called me and emailed me. at first I didn’t believe the woman who called ’cause I thought it was a crank call. But I called back and it is really was
VH1. Omg guys you should of heard lacubes screaming when I told her I was
So were driving and we come upon a huge f-ing billboard of M so we pull over
to take a picture… at this point it really hits us that were here and this is happening for real. *screams*
So we park quicker than superman and get out. We both had to pee like crazy
but unimportant things like THAT just had to wait… we wanted our
tickets! Lol. So we get to willcall and of course the woman we have to
meet isn’t there yet so we go onto the Boardwalk and look for icon’ers. We
met one from Montreal (whos name we both cant remember..sorry) who was so
sweet, We took pictures, talked about our luck bla bla. THEN.
THEN. We meet Monte and Tony. OMG. So sweet. So funny. Such down to earth guys. We took pictures together and off they went. During the night they kept looking at us waving, pointing, smiling. Monte even came over to us during “La Isla” and was smiling and winking. LOVE YOU MONTE!!!!! LOVE YOU TONY!!!! Tony we saw less us but he came onto the floor after the concert and talked to us for a bit…said he noticed us right away.
Soooooooooo. We’re still at willcall. Still waiting. you know me and
Cubes we talk to everyone, show everyone love so we notice these two people
who are dressed fairly nice and were like “are you winners too” and the guy
(a total DRAG queen and not drag as in fab but drag as in what a draaaag) is
like (in the most unimpressed un excited voice) yeah we won. Cubes and I
look at each other like how the f-ck can they contain themselves? We are
screaming and jumping and dying…ugh whatever.
Then we meet people who are friends of the band (they didnt says which band member) and when the guy realizes who I am he goes, “Omg your the 72 names of Madonna girl? Omg I LOOOOVVVVEEEE your site, I’m
a graphic designer too
and I was totally blown away” that really made my night (well besides
Madonna) btw he looked alot like streetfairie. We met some other winners
(aol contest) who were really cool and just as excited as us…
So…. our contact comes finally and she’s like WHERE ARE MY FRONT ROW BITCHES. Of course me n Cubes are like heeeeeerrrreee here here! lol And she’s like “are you really fans? are you going to scream and jump up and down?” And we immed. start sceaming and jumping YES! YES! YES! So then she explaains that she has to walk us in cause she has to make sure we don’t sell the tickets. OMG WHO WOULD DO THAT. We were like NEVER! NEEEEEVVVEEERRRRR!
She seemed satisfied and she starts handing out tickets. OMG wE ARE F!UCKING ROW 1 SEAT 1 AND 2!!!! At this point Cubes is jumping around like a 4 year old on way too much sugar and I start shaking like I have terets. (sp?)
At this point we still dont comprehend how good our seats are cause farg
numbers mean nothing but we are still giddy as hell.
So I’m like “Cubes lets go pee and then see our seats”. Done. We get there and
the ushers are like do you know where your sitting and were like “YES WE’RE
FRONT ROW BITCHES” lol of course they dont get it…lol
We get to our seats. OMG we are right where she sits to sing “Drowned World”. We freak out. I start crying. It’s too unreal.
We get what we need go back to our seats and wait. The security guard is
talking to two girls who are standing right in front of our seats. RUDE. I
wanted to tell them to f-ck off but you know me Kabbalah. Kabbalah. So when
the show is about to start the girls leave and she’s like sorry my ass was in
your face. B!TCH no you’re not! Then the guard HAS THE NERVE to ask if they
can stand with us. I wanted to say hell fcking no but I just said a firm and
solid NO. A married man fliriting with girls. tsk tsk. Anyway who cares! lol
OMG GUYS Cubes and I have both seen the show multiple times but seeing it like this is absolutly amazing. granted we missed the opening and other parts but we gained in other ways …like seeing the detail of the costumes.
I didn’t really like the dancing queen outfit but seeing it that close you really see how beautiful it is and how beautiful the dancers are. OMG.
The people behind us we befriended and they were so cute… you’ll see them on
the video. Gosh I’m loosing my thoughts…when the concert started we were
screaming and crying and singing at the top of our lungs. Cubes btw has a
beautiful voice. She can sing her ass off.
So she does the opening number and OMG she is coming towards the MAIN STAGE
and we are shaking and jumping up and down like OMG THERE SHE IS!
RIGHT AWAY she notices us LOCAS jumping up and down and smiles but keeps
singing (which BTW her voice was AMAZING tonight!!!!!!!) She goes through
“Get Together” and we really thought she would connect with us but I guess she has to keep focusing on her dancers…….WHICH BTW ARE FUCKING HOT
IN THOSE HORSE OUTFITS! Hell I’d ride them!! They look right at us and
wink!! We were like AHHHHHHH OMG OMG OMG!!!
Can I just tell you how many time M was looking at Cubes. She saw our shirts
but didn’t say anything about them but M kept looking at Cubes like,
“where have i seen you before?” I told her its prob cause of the Michael
Moore shot. I know she was trying to remember where. We were so loud I’m
almost positive the people in the back could hear us through her mike.
The pictures I took are to die for! At one point during “Get Together” I think
M got mad at me cause I was using my flash, she even pointed to me during
“Sorry” and said “Please dont say your sorry” I think she forgave me though
cause she never said stop using your flash. During “Get Together” we were like
“omg we are so close”. I kept flashing all night. unless she tells me to stop
I wasn’t going to. No freaking way.
Okay so on to the next songs. when I couldnt see M I was focused on the
dancers. Got lots of shots of all of them. we screamed at “Isaac” and told him
we loved him I screamed out “thank you for Kabbalah!” lol
“Live to Tell” was so amazing that close… although the mic covered her
face. Also from the front row you really cant see the screens but hey… ask
me if I care? lol
On to the real part of the show that had us having multiple orgasms. “Drowned World” and “Paradise“. She looked at us, sang to us, she was
FEELING our love. She was pissed that the right side of the catwalk wasn’t as
excited as us and she even told the guy who I mentioned before you don’t
dance, what do you think your in a bar and me n Cubes were screaming “he
doesnt appreciate his free seat, he doesnt deserve it!” The girl that was with however was dancing. but he stood still for the whole concert.
And then she was like “I’m not feeling the energy of this crownd.. EXCEPT FOR
YOU GUYS” and she pointed to US! *screams* Omg people my voice is gone.
Stuart kept making faces at us… Then the Saturday Night Fever section came upon us ad OMG! She looked fabulous… The oriental girl kept smimling at us and winking at us and when Madonna walked in front of us I was jumping up and down and pointed to my shirt and she wanted to LAUGH and kept
singing while nodding her head at me!!!!! LITTLE OL ME!
She probably thinks we are like STALKERS!! who cares!!…
After all that shes took off her outfit to sing “Erotica/You Thrill Me” and I
do have to say OMG that leotard looks sp much better up close. The details
on the outfit are so amazing! They don’t like like anything spectacular far
away and then that DANCING QUEEN cape is amazing! Once again the
details on the cape are fantastic! A few beads came off and I tried to get them but it rolled off the stage underneath… CRAP! Can you say eBAY!?! JUST KIDDING!!!!!!! NEVER NEVER NEVER!
When “Hung Up” comes you know the balloons come down… well guess who handed me a balloon… the hot, the sexy, the one I’d love to uhhh with
Mihran. I was freaking out!
This story sucks cause were skipping so many details but I’m running on only
4 hrs sleep and its all so unreal. So here’s some things I forgot to mention.
We saw Tony (her dresser) a few times and told him we love him and I handed
him my I love you 72 times shirt (which was smelly and wet lol) and begged
him to give it to Madonna. He did *yesssssss!*
Then when we saw crazy Tony later I asked him to give M my I love ny shirt
and told him “I’m an art director so please tell M I want to work for her”
We saw Madiva who was dress in the live to tell costume and he looked great.
Guy was taking pictures and he took several of us and when he saw my shirt I think he remember that I was the one he got mad at 6/28 lol
Cubes at one point (while M was looking at her) grabbed her boobs and shook
them for M. she got off on that.
Oh cubes wants me to tell you how amazing “Sorry” is upclose. And it really
REALLY is. Tamara and Cloud were supose to pretend to fight but they kept laughing. Cloud didn’t interact with us as much as I had hoped but he is amazing. f!ck they all are.
Thank you VH1!
