OUT magazine today released its second of two dual April 2011 covers featuring another of the “Ladies We Love,” Madonna. The beautiful Madonna print spread features never-before-published photographs snapped by Richard Corman, along with an additional 18 images posted exclusively to out.com. Corman reflects on the day he shot these images back in 1982 and the amazing woman he met as a result of a recommendation by his mother, Cis Corman, who had just had Madonna test read for a role in The Last Temptation of Christ.
When Corman arrived at Madonna’s Alphabet City apartment nearly two decades ago, he was struck at how the neighborhood children flocked to the fledgling star. “They followed her, they danced with her, they sang with her. It was something they did on a daily basis, and it was remarkable,” Corman remembers. He continues, “She was so alive and unpretentious. She was fierce, determined. Nothing was going to stop her.”
The “Ladies We Love” is dedicated to the women who inspire, scandalize, educate, and excite us. In addition to Madonna and Britney Spears, whose was released on last Wednesday, the “Ladies We Love” issue celebrates Wendy Williams, Tippi Hedren, Heather Morris, Phyllis Diller, Stockard Channing, and others.
