Caption: Madonna opened up the MTV European Awards in Portugal. She came out onto the stage after bursting out og a big silver disco ball. Then stood right in front of me for all of 5 seconds. I must admit that I had a clue that is how it was going to be, so, I stood in the same spot for about 8 hours waiting. Had I moved then one of the other 4 photographers who were also allowed to shoot the show could have moved into my spot. I am really pleased that I did stand there like a lunatic for that length of time, because this photo ended up being used all over the world and still is used today. I am told that is becoming one of those Iconic Madonna shots. Which is nice!!
