The Wonderful Mrs. Fellows

Innocent Intelligent Beauty

I feel compelled to re-post this video, simply because Madonna brings up Mrs. Fellows and Christopher Flynn again in the new Interview Magazine. Since the very beginning, these are two people she has constantly payed homage to. She will never let us forget Flynn and Fellows for they should never be forgotten.

VAN SANT: It's amazing that you had a person like that in your life who was such an influence.

MADONNA: Thank god! Otherwise, I don't know if I would've gotten out of Michigan. I think it was Christopher and my Russian history teacher, Marilyn Fellows. The two of them, I think they were a conspiracy that god sent to me. The conspiracy of angels that gave me the confidence and helped me turn my lemons into lemonade, if you know what I'm saying. Because when you grow up in a really conservative place and you don't fit in, it's kind of hard. . . . You can go one way or the other.

  1. Where can I find this video on the internet? Marilyn Fellows was actually my great aunt.
