Madonna’s ‘Erotica,’ ‘Sex’: Why Musical Masterpiece, Defiant Book Still Matter
In , Madonna was as astronomically popular as a boundary-bulldozing, unapologetically bacchanalian performance artist could get. The tour showcasing it, Blond Ambition, mixed spectacle with social commentary so sharply that it reinvented the pop concert and yielded the smash documentary Truth or Dare. But for her vast audience, she was nothing less than liberating, and her uninterrupted string of hits defined pop for a decade. Nearly everything changed two years later with Erotica and Sex.
Erotica is the fifth studio album by American recording artist Madonna , released on October 20, by Maverick and Sire Records. The album was released simultaneously with Madonna's first book publication Sex , a coffee table book containing explicit photographs featuring the singer, and marked her first release under Maverick, her own multimedia entertainment company. Erotica is a concept album about sex and romance, incorporating her alter ego Mistress Dita, inspired by actress Dita Parlo.
