I’m the ”Front Row Bitch”
Triber AlphaMaleA was the lucky winner of the MTV front row contest for last night’s show – and now you can simply call him “Front Row Bitch“.
Here’s his story:
“I made the FRONT ROW BITCH t-shirt because I wanted Madonna to notice me when I sat in the front row of her show in San Jose on 5/31.
And notice me she did!
She verbally acknowledged me during the show about 3 times, referring to me and the Icon winners next to me as “front row bitches.” She said something about being distracted by the “front row bitches” and even thanked me as Front Row Bitch once, too!
During the concert Madonna sang right in front of me, looking right at me and smiling, multiple times. 20 times? 30? I got looks and smiles during “Get Together” (when I think she first noticed the shirt) and right before she started “Like A Virgin” and we shared a moment during “Jump” – plus she looked at me A LOT during “I Love New York“, and “Ray of Light” because I was bouncing like crazy.
My friend said the practically sang “I Love New York” TO me! She sang “Drowned World” about 6 feet in front of my face from the stairs leading down to the catwalk.
It was amazing to watch her sing this close, but she didn’t look at us very much during this song because I’m sure she knew she’d be distracted.
What else? She sang about three lines of “La Isla Bonita” to me right in front of me, and pointed her microphone three or four feet in front of my face during “Hung Up.”
So much acknowledgement, I was astonished.
There is so much I don’t remember… My friends all throughout the venue were blown away, calling and texting me! Down on the floor, every time she mentioned the “front row bitches” I turned around and the folks in the rows behind me cheered.
Before the show, some one from the tour came out and took my picture. One of the camera guys got a good shot of it during the show but it didn’t appear on the big screens – maybe it’ll be in a documentary?
After the show, leaving the venue, I felt like a star when all these fans saw the shirt and realized Madonna had referred to it several times.
This was my 12th time seeing Madonna but I’d never closer than sixth row. It was an amazing dream come true. If anyone has video or recordings from this night, I’d love to see them or hear them and relive the experience! Also, if anyone remembers Madonna’s exact references to “front row bitch(es)” let me know! It’s all a blur….”
Thanks to AlphaMaleA. You rock, you front row bitch!
