After his strenuous success interviewing Gloria Estefan, Marlon says his adrenaline has not stopped. To this day he keeps saying “I can’t still believe I interviewed one of my idols”. He has, however, put that disbelief to good use by celebrating one of his other idols,
Madonna.Madonna’s birthday was on August 16 and prior to her big day, Marlon was working on his show “Happy Birthday Madonna”. He was nearly halfway through putting together the format to celebrate the Queen of Pop when he was contacted by Kevin Murnane about interviewing Gloria. So as you can imagine, he had to put everything on hold.
Marlon is a big fan of Madge. He knows most of her songs, knows about her life and has followed her career since he was living in Venezuela. He fondly remembers that when he came to Ireland he went to The George and that night they were celebrating Madonna’s birthday by playing her music for the entire night. He couldn’t believe it and he says he felt like he was in heaven. He danced and sweated the night away.
