Before you go rushing to the local constables, it was 35 years ago. When Madonna was only something like 147 and first moved to New York. Sometimes when you’re doing a cover story interview for a magazine like Harper’s Bazaar, you just run out of good new stories. So you reach into the archives and pull out the rape story that you haven’t told in a while. Like an old jock bringing up the game saving tackle he made in the homecoming game. It’s a go-to. Madonna knows her audience. She quickly went to her rape and her nude modeling as the strongest remembrances of first moving to New York. Fuck, I clicked.
