The artist, who's previously collaborated with Tom Ford, tells us that she's felt solidarity with Madonna since the early Nineties. "She did her Sex book at the same time that I made a hardcore porn series of paintings," she says. "She got excoriated by the press and so did I, as traitors of feminism in a way. We were both pro-sex feminists at the wrong time, in the middle of early political correctness. We tapped into the way feminism was going a little bit ahead of the zeitgeist."
She is now headed off to London now for the concert. The two, she says, have not yet met (although Madonna owns two of Minter's works). Madonna sent her tickets, flowers and a note.
