Dated footage showing a very young Madonna and one-time backup dancers Donna De Lory and Niki Harris voguing on the set of the 1990 “Vogue” video has leaked, leading many to wonder who’s actually behind the leak.
Was it De Lory and Harris? Was it David Fincher, the video’s director, who also directed Madonna’s 1989 video for “Express Yourself”? Was it Madonna herself? Homegirl does have some tickets to sell for her upcoming Rebel Heart tour.
By the mid-’00s, Donna and Niki eventually parted ways with Madonna after a lengthy run as background vocalists on her recordings and on stage. But for one glamorous moment in early 1990 on a Burbank soundstage, all involved came together and vogued their way to perfection.
It’s not far-fetched to believe the Queen of Pop leaked the video herself, even though her thoughts on leakers were well-documented when her Rebel Heart album was pirated and leaked five months ahead of schedule last November. On Twitter, she condemned the leak as “artistic rape.”
“This invasion into my life – creatively, professionally, and personally remains a deeply devastating and hurtful experience, as it must be for all artists who are victims of this type of crime,” she wrote.
