Fans attending Madonna’s July 4 concert in London will be confronted by the surreal sight of a giant tongue licking and spitting out neon-colored icing. “It’s not the most appetizing imagery; it’s saliva being spit out with bakery products,” says its creator, artist Marilyn Minter. Her film, Green Pink Caviar, serves as a backdrop to Madge’s opening number, “Candy Shop.” Says Minter, “we had to make it as absolutely beautiful as possible so you overlook that.”
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.
