Nile Rodgers Interview

27 years ago today, Like a Virgin was released.

Nile Rodgers interview for his autobiography, Le Freak. Big Madonna talk around 16:13. There's some before. It's all fascinating. Go in.


  1. AMAZING and perfect on the release date of LAV 11-12-11
    I love when he goes into Madonna was NO VIRGIN when i met her.

  2. it's painful to hear this blondie speak English, like migraine's voice.

  3. lol at: "Madonna and the way she is now in her videos, I don't even know what that is..." neither do we.

    I have faith the new album and Give Me... will give us the old Madonna back. I can feel it.

  4. Neither do we? Speak for yourself. 'Hung Up', 'Sorry', both great videos, not to mention how amazing she looked in, 'Jump'.

    And 'Give It 2 Me' was hot.

  5. That's a cool story, how Le Freak was originally "Fuck Off".
    Sounds like he expected to produce M's next album(s) as well. Love Nile, but it's a little lame of him to say he doesn't even know who 'that' is now. Does he expect everyone to just stay the same forever?

  6. Another person using Madonna to promote his book. It's not very gentlemanlike to say the things he says about a woman, taking into account he says he didn't sleep with her because he was "smarter" than that.

  7. 54 Like a Fellini film with Dali as the designer and Picasso running the front door! Brilliant. I totally get why he didn't fuck Madonna and that's really cool of him. People say M slept her way to the top, but I don't think that's completely true. I almost think M thought it was expected in her early days. Almost like a gift or thank you. Does that make any sense? Probably not!
