1995: Presenting VMA for 'Best Rap Video'




1995 kicked off with Madonna scoring her biggest ever US Billboard singles chart hit as "Take a Bow" topped the charts for seven weeks! Two more singles from "Bedtime Stories" would bring success later in the year.

By March, the movie "Evita" was finally confirmed to be happening with Madonna in the lead role and Alan Parker as director. When the Summer ended Madonna was due to begin work on this as well as preparing to release a compilation album of her ballads, entitled "Something to Remember".

So finally we get to September and an appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards - *the* awards show for Madonna fans back then!!! This time, Madonna was on the lineup as presenter of "Best Rap Video", and from my original tape you can watch below her presentation in full from the uncensored live broadcast (there's a bit of trademark strong language which was never broadcast again)!
