Welcome to another edition of Retro Rewind, the TGJ original feature launched to celebrate TV and Film’s glorious past.
Today, we revisit Madonna‘s seminal ‘Truth or Dare‘, the documentary she shot while on her ‘Blonde Ambition Tour’ in 1991.
In it, the ‘Bad Girl’ offered fans access to her life on the road, her friendships with members of her team and, more importantly, the truth behind their painful childhoods and how it shaped them as they delivered the show to fans all over the world.
Its moving nature saw the project generate $29,012,935 and go on to inspire Lady GaGa’s ‘Lady GaGa Presents the Monster Ball Tour: At Madison Square Garden’ in 2011.
That isn’t all.
The movie also features appearances from Lionel Ritchie, Warren Beatty, Antonio Banderas, the “neat” Kevin Costner and…(drumroll) an unforgettable Janet Jackson dig.
Unfortunately, it also showcases some of the crueller parts of the icon’s personality.
