Madonna about NBC editing ”Live To Tell”
In her chat with NBC’s Meredith Vieira to air on “Today” and “Dateliine NBC”, Madonna also discusses the controversy surrounding her concert airing on NBC this month.
Vieira asked Madonna why did she decide to okay the concert with the cross scene being edited, and this is what the singer replied:
“It’s not one hundred percent like my vision. But what was my goal? My goal was to be able to talk about the AIDS epidemic in Africa. And to wake people up. And to talk about my foundation, Raising Malawi.
So, if I say, no, I don’t want to change it, then I don’t get my show aired at all… If I say I’ll make a compromise, then I get my show aired. I still get my point across. And I’m now talking to you. And this will be on TV. And people will hear what I have to say.”
Meredith Vieira also asked Madonna about a favorite time in her career – one that she wish she could “freeze.”
“I think if there’s any moment that I’m the most fond of,” – Madonna replies – “I would say it’s the beginning. The very, very, very beginning when you don’t have any preconceived notions. And you don’t have any kind of cynicism. You’re totally naive, pure, innocent.”
