ACiDPoP! - Les Nus de Madonna / The Nude Madonna. Part1.

Au mois de septembre 1985, Penthouse et Playboy profitèrent du succès mondial de l'album Like A Virgin pour présenter les nus de Madonna, réalisés en 1979 par Martin Schreiber.
A cette époque, la jeune Louise avait besoin d'argent et chaque séance de pose lui assurait $25. Elle avait aussi signé, en bonne et due forme, tous les documents autorisant leurs publications.

Edition américaine, anglaise et allemande
du Penthouse du mois de septembre 1985

Sept ans et 21 millions d'albums plus tard , il ne lui était donc pas possible d'intenter une action en justice pour s'opposer à leurs publications. Le tintamarre médiatique qui s'en suivit ne troubla pas beaucoup la rebelle qui se contenta d'un "Who cares?" . Depuis, ces photographies ont été vendues à plus de $100,000.
ACiDPoP! vous propose d'aller (re)jeter un coup d'oeil sur les pages des magazines qui les publièrent. Check This Out!

• 1987 : The Sweetest Smile / BlackI think my heart must be made of clay,'cause everyone said it would be broken someday. And now I've come to that fateful day,so I sit on the floor with my head in my hands. And don't tell me how to make it pay,I write a new song every day.I just wish I was made of wood,I might not feel pain,even if I should, even if I should,if I should. The sweetest smile that ever did melt the pats in the butter dish,and if you could have believed in me,I swear to God I'd have made damn sure.Our hearts were warm, and glad with wine.I'd keep the doors locked all the time.I just wish I was made of wood,You might not seem glad, even if you should, even if you should,if you should, if you should,if you should.I think my heart must be made of clay,'cause everyone said it would be broken someday.Seems like I have come to that fateful day,so I sit on the floor with my head in my hands, with my head in my hands.If I should, if I should,if I should, uh if I should.

All that we see or seem Is but a dream within a dream I stand amid the roar Of the surf tormented shore And i hold within my hands Grains of golden sand How few yet how they creep Through my fingers to the deep While i weep, while i weep Oh god can i not grasp them with a tighter clasp Oh god can i not save one from the pitiless wave Is all that we see or seem But a dream within a dream.

ACiDPoP! - Dali meets Hitchcock (Spellbound - 1945).

En 1945, Hitchcock retourne aux États-Unis pour tourner Spellbound(La Maison du Docteur Edwardes), deuxième film qu'il tourne avec Selznick, avec pour thème principal la psychanalyse...

L'affiche polonaise du film by Andrzej Heidrich.

Les rôles principaux de La Maison du Docteur Edwardes (Spellbound) sont tenus par Gregory Peck et Ingrid Bergman. Cette dernière interprète un médecin travaillant dans un établissement psychiatrique dirigé par un docteur sur le point de prendre sa retraite et qui doit être remplacé par un certain Anthony Edwardes.


Une fois installé, le nouveau directeur s’avère être un amnésique du nom de John Ballantine, soupçonné d’avoir fait disparaître le véritable docteur Edwardes. Tombée amoureuse, la jeune femme va l’aider à retrouver son identité.

Salvator Dali - Spellbound (détail) Oil on Canvas.

L'une des séquences les plus célèbres du film est celle du rêve surréaliste créée par Salvador Dali, une sorte de rébus qui va permettre à la psychanalyste d'élucider le mystérieux passé de son patient amnésiques


Dali réalisa le décor de la scène dans laquelle Gregory Peck, psychanalysé par Ingrid Bergman voit un rideau d'yeux grands ouverts — idée reprise du film Un chien andalou — et des ciseaux énormes qui découpent paupière et rétine. On y voit aussi une cagoule de pénitent, une pente neigeuse, une roue molle, des cartes à jouer blanches et des ailes géantes poursuivant de petits personnages. Check This Out!



Deux autres séquences ne furent pas retenues : la première, quinze énormes pianos à queue accrochés au plafond de la salle de bal se balançant au-dessus de silhouettes en carton placées en ordre décroissant, la deuxième, l'actrice Ingrid Bergman se transformant en statue. Dalí déclara : « Hitchcock est l'un des rares personnages que j'ai rencontrés récemment à posséder un certain mystère. »

Alfred Hitchcock & Salvador Dali

Selon le témoignage d'Ingrid Bergman donné dans la biographie de Donald Spoto, The Dark Side of Genius (1983), la scène de rêve durait originellement 20 minutes environ. Le producteur David O. Selznick, qui détestait les conceptions de Dalí, décida de réduire au minimum la scène de rêve.

ACiDPoPHoMMaGe à Divine alias Glenn Milstead.

Glenn Milstead était un chanteur et acteur américain, plus connu sous le rôle du personnage de Divine, un travesti aux formes généreuses.
Divine était l'actrice fétiche de John Waters, un cinéaste atypique qui cassait les genres par un cinéma résolument "trash"...
Check This Out!


Dans ses premiers films, Divine n'avait jamais le premier rôle. Elle a joué Jackie Kennedy dans son film Eat Your Makeup. Divine s'est imposée dans des rôles plus importants, au fur et à mesure...


Divine (Glen) et John Waters se sont connus 1963. Les parents de Divine ont emménagé dans le quartier de John Waters.

John Waters & Divine

Glen était fils unique. Selon les dires de John Waters, « c'était un tocard au lycée. À 16 ans il ne sortait toujours pas. Il se faisait toujours taper dessus. Je me suis servi plus tard de la colère qu'il y avait en lui pour faire naître cette beauté insolite qu'il est devenu. En tant normal, il ne se travestissait pas...

Harris Glenn Milstead

... Il n'était Divine que dans mes films, ou pour sa carrière musicale. Il ne se baladait pas comme ça. On s'entendait très bien car il était parfait pour devenir le porte-parole de ce que j'avais à dire...

Dvine dans Multiple Maniacs (1970)

...J'ai mis sa colère à profit pour créer cette chose monstrueuse. Il était ma créature en quelque sorte, grâce à qui je pouvais tirer sur les hétéros comme sur les homos...


... Les drag-queens détestaient Divine. Elles voulaient toutes ressembler à des reines de beauté ou à de vraies femmes. Divine débarquait avec de fausses cicatrices, ses 150 kg engoncés dans une minijupe et une tronçonneuse à la main ! Elle se payait leur tête...


...Divine savait comme moi qu'elle était devenue un monstre. Plus tard, elle a commencé à jouer une vraie femme dans mes films, une mère de famille obèse et alcoolique (Polyester) ou une ouvrière repasseuse de linges (Hairspray), une pauvre ménagère avec ses bigoudis sur la tête. C'est là que c'est devenu génial. Divine maltraitait et dénaturait totalement son image ».


Au début des années 70, Waters signe ses deux pamphlets les plus violents : Pink Flamingos pour lequel il devra payer une amende pour obscénité. Un film en totale rupture avec les conventions et le bon goût, comme en témoigne une scène culte dans laquelle Divine mange des excréments de chien.


Dans Female Trouble, Divine réussit la performance de se violer lui-même !

Pink Flamingos (1972)




Female Trouble (1974)


Dès lors, Divine et l'œuvre de John Waters commencent à être reconnues, au point que le Musée d’Art Moderne inclut Pink Flamingos dans sa collection permanente.


Considérés comme des artistes cultes du film underground (film expérimental, indépendant, produit sans l’aide des grands studios), Divine et John Waters se font connaître internationalement avec Polyester, le premier film en « odorama » (un sticker avec des pastilles à gratter était remis à l’entrée de la salle).



Hairspray marque un tournant dans leur filmographie s'orientant vers un public plus large mais gardant un esprit indubitablement caustique.

Hairspray (1988)


Harris Glen Milstead (né le 19 octobre 1945 à Towson, Maryland) meurt le 7 mars 1988 des suites d'une apnée du sommeil. John Waters, affligé, mettra du temps à se remettre de la disparition de son acteur-fétiche.
