Viva


Back in the day, here in LA, there was an infamous Madonna impersonator, his name was Viva and he was beyond fabulous. He would perform at Peanuts nightclub on Santa Monica Blvd. He would always have the outfit and whatever she did the day before done perfectly. This is from Star Hits when they covered The Virgin Tour in 1985.

  2. STAR HITS! That was the American Bible of Smash Hits in the UK. I didn't have that issue. I started getting it in 86. It was perfect, because they always had Madonna and then my other loves, The Cure, Siouxsie, Echo, DM, Smiths...Star Hits was a weird and wonderful magazine for the American audience. LOVE it.
