Jeremy Irons: “I Remember Kissing Madonna”
Jeremy Irons on His Best Leading Actor Oscar Winning Moment in 1991 for Reversal of Fortune…

“Well, the worrying thing about it is, you know, you get a lot of sort of static noise in your head when your category comes up and my nightmare was to think I’d heard my name and to stand up and discover I hadn’t, that it was my name saying that I’d been nominated or something, not that I’d won. What I seem to remember doing is thinking, well if everybody is looking and me and smiling, then that must mean that I’m the one who has won. Umm, and I think I waited for that moment. Because there’s nothing more embarrassing than standing up if you haven’t, you know? And that’s to say your senses are so on edge that you could mishear. And I won! I kissed everybody I seem to remember. I remember kissing Madonna, I don’t know Madonna. Well, I do now but I didn’t then. She was sitting next to Michael Jackson, I very nearly kissed Michael Jackson. I was actually up for kissing everybody.”

Live Nation France prosecuted for Sticky & Sweet Tour Marseille disaster
Back in July 2009, Madonna concert stage collapsed in in the French port city of Marseille, killing one and injuring eight
The accident happened at the 60,000-seater Stade Velodrome sports arena, home of the Olympique de Marseille football club. The concert, which was scheduled to take place on Sunday 19 July 2009, as part of Madonna’s Sticky and Sweet tour, had been cancelled.
Around 50 technicians were working on the rigging and up to a dozen of them were underneath the stage when it collapsed. The roof was being lifted into place by four cranes when it became unbalanced, toppling one of the cranes which crashed into the structure below.

Yesterday, eight new prosecutions for involuntary homicide and injuries have been made in an investigation into the collapse of the stage.
Among the prosecuted are three company officials and three French service providing companies, among them show producer Live Nation France.
