Strike a Pose Deeper and Deeper


Dreams come true! I never thought in my life that I could vogue with the original Blond Ambition and Vogue dancers. This video is really deep, indeed🙂 And it gets deeper and deeper when it has also special cameos of my superstar drag queen cat, my mother (“Mama told me…”) and my good friends Lylian and Diego. And also the big fan and Madonna impersonator, my dutch friend Diana!

I managed to meet the dancers when they came to Amsterdam for the premiere of “Strike a Pose”. On the day before, I was lucky enough to be part of a dance workshop with Salim Gauwloos and Jose Gutierez. Thanks to my friend Diego Giuliarini who made me a surprise and gave it to me as birthday gift🙂

The funny thing is that everybody who participated of the workshop were professional dancers…and me…just watch the video and have your conclusions.

Coming back to the amazing “Strike a Pose” documentary, after its premiere we were invited to an after party where we had the opportunity to interact more with the guys and VOGUE!

It was also really nice to assemble footage recorded in Brazil (with my cat), Amsterdam, Prague and Pisa.

Madonna, you MUST see this video…and meet me afterwards…

You’re Frozen when your heart is not open

After 6 months of editing, finally my frozen masterpiece with my most special guest: my sister, Fabrícia Viana🙂

I’ve chosen the “Extended Club Remix” of Frozen because it reflects my first contact with the song on the radio, back to February of 1998. At the time, I got crazy with how clear and beautiful Madonna voice was. Afterwards, I’ve seen the video and have downloaded lots of pieces of it (we didn’t have Youtube at the time) with my 56K modem connection🙂

I remember that my sisters were so annoyed that I was playing the music in loop for months and months in 1998. In the end, all of them knew the lyrics.

During those more than 4 years of campaign, I’ve always wanted to make my version for Frozen. If Madonna didn’t go for the obvious choice, recording it in the middle of a desert, I found convenient to be literally frozen in the video.

We’ve recorded in the beginning of January, in the back of my sister’s house in Reconvilier Switzerland. My sister was quite demanding, saying that if she would be part of a video of mine, it would be a super production. So she wore a wig and prepared not only her outfit, as mine as well. For me the worst part was the makeup part, with my frozen sweat makeup irritating my eyes.

In the end, we loved the result, and specifically in that scene that my sister was throwing back of my snow, she was saying: “Now you will pay all the pain you are making me suffer in the middle of this cold – take it”.

Finally, my sister is one of the best singers who I know and I asked her to sing a bit of “Let it go”, from Frozen. Those scenes showed truly the way we are with each other: crazy, living the moment at its fullest, being childish, having fun and most of all loving each other, with the same pureness we had when we were children.

Madonna, I didn’t meet you yet, but in the meantime your music has been an excuse to have good moments also with my family.

Devil Pray (And You Can Eat Weed)

Now that I’m broke after 6 Rebel Heart concerts in Europe, there is nothing more to do than to smoke weed and get stoned. Actually, I’ve made some changes in Devil Pray lyrics: since I totally hate smoking, the only solution I found to get stoned was eating space cake. I had an ultra concentrate brownie of weed last Saturday to try to understand the meaning of this song.

The result you can see above. I’ve never been high in my whole life (just check my previous videos and you will realize that I don’t need any drugs for that). Anyway, I should celebrate my 40th video in big style, out of this world. Now I will just apply to be part of the Guinness Book of the Records as the fan who has made most videos for his idol.

I really thank my friends, who don’t want to be mentioned on this post, for have teaching me how to pray (or to eat). I remember telling them that sensation of being stoned is like to have a “shell of numbness”. In the end, I just remember that I went to bed crying because my drag queen cat is in Brazil.

Now I just hope that his videos reaches Madonna and an angel can make me meet her in any place of the world.

And remember:
“And we can do drugs and we can smoke weed and we can drink whiskey
Yeah, we can get high and we can get stoned
And we can sniff glue and we can do E and we can drop acid
Forever be lost with no way home”

Thanks Madonna for teaching me how to pray.

PS: my friend who is in the video saying that Madonna supports animal cruelty was talking about Miaura and that Madonna actually supports drag queen cat cruelty. My cat has already made 4 videos with me and Madonna doesn’t care at all (by the way, the next video is with Miaura as well).

PS2: I live in Amsterdam, so I’m not doing anything illegal in this video.

Why Is It So Hard To Love?

Why is it so hard to love? from I Will Meet Madonna on Vimeo.

I couldn’t control myself to finish editing this video before to see Madonna this Saturday, in Prague. I think it’s already becoming cliche to mention that every video is getting more difficult and elaborated to make. This one was recorded last Sunday in Panama City Panama and in Tel Aviv, last June.

Those guys who are dancing with me are my colleagues and friends! Extra Special thanks to Phil, Andrea, Phoebe and Logan. Guys you are great!!! They believe in Equality and also that I will meet Madonna🙂 The funny thing is that my friend Phil, who is dancing on pink shirt, was quite hesitating to participate. After recording he said: ” Fabio, I never thought I could say that but it was really nice to participate of your video. I had lots of fun and it requires lots of energy”. The landscape in Panama was amazing and it looks like a fake background.

Back to Tel Aviv, the guy who plays my boyfriend is an Israeli guy who I met there and agreed to help me with my campaign🙂 I went to Israel one week before the Pride and it was quite nice to see the whole city decorated with the diversity/gay flag🙂 For me it was quite surprising to see how the government in Tel Aviv was supporting it.

This was my 39o video so far. I think I will contact The Guinness Book of Records to include me there for sure. Madonna, let me record my 40o video with you.

Guys pray for me! Why is it so hard to love?

Nothing Fails (It Coexists)

Nothing Fails (It Coexists) from I Will Meet Madonna on Vimeo.

Peace should be something reachable just with love. Unfortunately, what we’ve seen through the years is that people misunderstand the concept of peace. Misunderstandings, power, war, hate and death. The worst is to see that many wars happen for no acceptance of other people believes. Because of religion. When actually, all religions spread the message of love, compassion and peace. I don’t believe that my God is bigger or smaller than yours. I just believe that there is a God inside of me named love.

I recorded this video in 3 different cities: Jerusalem, Rome (Vatican City actually) and Amsterdam. The funny thing is that I thought that in Amsterdam people would be more open to shake my hand. I was wrong. Nowadays, independent of where we can be, this fear feeling surrounds us. Apparently people are afraid of giving a hand to someone and be cheated, robbed or killed. Everything can start just with a handshake, as a deal. A deal that hands are made to build, not to destroy.

And my hands were almost stopped by cuffs: in the 3 cities I recorded the video the police/army came to me to find out what I was doing. In the Vatican, I said I was praying. Same in Jerusalem (especially there). In the end, “He who sings,” said St. Augustine, “prays twice.”🙂 Only in Amsterdam I said I was recording a video to promote the peace. I have even invited the police guys to shake my hand and they allowed me to finish it.

I would like to thank some hands which have helped me with this video. The first one is from my work colleague Samer, who interpreted the Arabian man. He was really afraid and reluctant to be part of the video. In the end, after some weeks of negotiation, he accepted the challenge and has recorded it with me on HIS BIRTHDAY. Not even the famous rain of Amsterdam stopped us. In the end, there is no bad weather for peace. We can always bring the sun to other people lives.

Unapologetic Bitch in Traffic Jam

Unapologetic Bitch in Traffic Jam from I Will Meet Madonna on Vimeo.

Last month, I was really bothered in the middle of a traffic jam in Switzerland. So, I asked my sister to start recording my unapologetic behavior in the middle of the cars. We stayed there for some hours, but in the end I had fun and not apologizing to anyone there.

Talking about my inspiration, I still need to wait for almost 2 months to see Madonna in Prague. I will go to both concerts there and afterwards Stockholm, Antwerpen and Amsterdam. And I’m not sorry, I wish I could follow her in the whole european leg of her tour. But my bank account doesn’t allow me that…

In the meantime, I continue with my dream, traveling around the world and being an unapologetic bitch recording my videos. This one so far is the 37th one… If I won’t meet Madonna, for sure I will be at least in the Guinness Book of Records..

Anyway, now next time you will be in a traffic jam, you know what you are going to do right?

Wish me could luck bitches!!!

You will feel my heartbeat too

“Heartbeat” is indeed one of my favorite Madonna songs. I always wanted to make a video for it but I was quite reluctant. First of all because I’m not a good dancer and this song requires twerking, shaking, my butt getting down…Second, I was a little bit ashamed (???) in trying to dance like this.

So last summer I’ve been to Greece, got a little bit drunk and started to record this video.But 2 months ago, after a last minute trip to Thailand, I’ve decided to finalize it there and the result is what you see.

I remember when I went to record with the tigers, the guy from “Tiger Kingdom” in Phuket asked me if I would like to have the small, the medium or the biggest tiger. I asked for the most dangerous…I was drunk, maybe, and got quite scared in few moments that I was interacting with the cat. But I survived and went to record more footage with the elephant🙂 The only bad thing about it was when he sneezed all over me. I had to continue to record the video totally covered of elephant snot😛

And finally, since I was in Thailand, I should act like a kick-boxer. The inspiration came also from Madonna boxer phase, during Hard Candy years… The funny thing was that the people on the street thought that I was a professional kick-boxer promoting a fight (???).

In the end, this video represents my current mood: I close my eyes, whatever I can be, and start to dance just following my heartbeat. And I don’t care if other people is going to think that I’m crazy or not. I’m happy.
