Right. So let’s state the obvious. I have been extremely remiss lately when it comes to this blog. I’m not proud of it, and I don’t have an excuse. I’ve been a fine combination of busy and lazy (the latter being key here) and I’m sorry. But I’m back. And what better way to start than with this? A 9-year-old in 1991 performing with every tiny bone in his body to Maddonna’s “Vogue”.
Robert Jeffrey is the star of this video (which we should all praise baby JESUS for), and in the description of it on YouTube he explains the background:
“I performed to MADONNA’s “VOGUE” in the Summer of 1991 when my parents took me to Hampton Beach Casino in Hampton Beach, New Hampshire. A business in the casino at the time gave tourists the chance to lip-synch to their favorite pop songs in front of a blue screen background, and I was lucky enough to partake that summer.
In honor of the twentieth anniversary of MADONNA’s “TRUTH OR DARE” and in celebration of MADONNA’s upcoming “W.E.”, here is my nine year old self paying tribute to the woman who changed my life and continues to inspire me just as much today as twenty years ago.”
Probably fair to say that the assumption we all made while watching the video was accurate (having said that I have a few friends who romance girls who I can envisage having made a video like this, one in particular…). Robert Jeffrey, in the words of RuPaul, “You better WORK.”
