1992: Madonna Fan Convention on MTV!




On her birthday August 16th 1992, fans from all over the world gathered in Southfield, Michigan close to where Madonna grew up for "Madonnathon '92".

MTV were there to report as fans met to display and sell rare memorabilia, take a tour of places from Madonna's childhood and also stage a Madonna look-a-like contest!

Watch out for Madonna fan royalty Matthew Rettenmund & Bruce Baron in this really cool report from "Week in Rock" back then.




And check out Matthew Rettenmund's memory of attending this event and being filmed by MTV on his BoyCulture blog.
