It has been exactly 2 years that I launched this website. I have made so far 35 videos and I still have some surprises to bring to you guys.
I’ve been in London 2 weeks ago to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Like a Prayer :) After 9 hours of non-stop dancing, I’ve decided to collaborate with Madonna’s #artforfreedom project and walk around the city trying to open the heart of some people.
Although you’ve seen around 110 hugs on the video, I’ve hugged around 150 people in a really cold London. My throat is still suffering after I’ve decided to keep myself warm with other people hugs.
In a certain point a police man came to me and told me that I could be arrested for “sexual assault”. I said: “What?”. He replied: “I can see your good intentions, but what it can be seen as simple hug by you can be considered as rape for some people”. Well, I’ve never seen someone being raped with love. Love is patient!
The trip to London has also given me the opportunity to meet the amazing Charlie Hides (check his videos on his Youtube channel). Charlie was so kind and friendly accepting to be part of this video. If I didn’t hug his Madonna’s impersonator, at least I had the opportunity to interact with the gorgeous Laquisha Jonz.
My special thanks also to my big friend Alessandra Murgia and to Diego Giuliarini who had the patience to record me in London (and also helped me to escape from some upset people) :)
Are you with me?
