In this made for Showtime television spoof of Madonna's Madonna: Truth or Dare (1991) documentary, comedienne Julie Brown portrays Medusa, an egocentric, hyper-sexual (and not particularly talented) pop star on an international five-day world tour, "The Blonde Leading the Blonde" show. Brown painstakingly duplicates costumes, sets and hairstyles while spoofing Madonna's seeming self-obsession. Madonna visits the cemetery where her mother is buried; Medusa visits the pet cemetery where her dog Buster is laid to rest. (Or is it "Boomer"?). Madonna performs fellatio on a bottle, at the dare of a friend; Medusa does it on a watermelon. And so on... Written by

[after accidentally being electrocuted by onstage pyrotechnics
Ow, even my armpit hairs are burned!
Do you know something, though? You were fabulous tonight.
Oh yes! Oh yes, yes, yes.
What, are you saying I do my best work when I'm being electrocuted?
No, but I have to be honest with you... some people are saying it was the best part of the show.
Really? Well maybe we should keep it in. But a LOT less voltage! Can you do that?
During the credits we hear Medusa and her dancers in her bed giggling and making comments. See more
