Madonna Lookalike Evelyne Brink hired to open Impromptu Exhibition
Did Madonna think she'd see her nude pictures again when she did the shoot in 1979?
They are beautiful shots of a young dancer, sensitive and very natural, the hair style was certainly different from today's shaven privacy- it must be said that her breasts look absolutely amazing in the pictures- no surgery can do that! these nudes have a very wild and natural feel...some of them show Madonna stroking a puss- a cat that is. What were you thinking?
The Madonna Nudes Exhibition runs from Thursday 2nd – Sunday 19th July 2009 at Impure Art, 19 Earlham Street, Seven Dials. The exhibition is free to attend.
This is the first time ever that I earned more than Madonna for a photoshoot.
Madonna made $30 for her nudes. I got more being fully clothed. A rare obscurity in the career of an impersonator!
You can see me on German TV Magazine Brisant (hey it's not what you think)

Thank you Ricardo, Erika, Lissie, everyone who made this possible.
Thank you Classixfm.com
This morning in Cancun started a little rough with me slipping on the marble floor probably thanks to the clubbers spilling some fluids of unknown nature. I fell but nothing really happened thank God, the wrist hurt a while but moves fine but at 5am it wakes you up that little bit..
The taxi was on time and the driver lovely.
Then we were told Mexico city had fog.
So we were 1.5 horus delayed or so. I don´t really remember as I curled up and slept like someone who partied one night and had 4 hours of interrupted sleep (did the alarm ring?) the next one...oh and the most amount of alcohol ever consumed. I topped myself yesterday with 4 cocktails in a day.
Lissie, my personal assistant and me hit the night life as well where we went to coco bongo, the biggest night club wiht a vegas type show. It was awesome. especially the aerial acts playing scenes from spiderman wiht the costumes, the green gobin and glider...they were flying through the club on a harness, it was fantastic. they had screens as big as a proper sized cinema on whihc you saw the movie and-or the scene taking place. spectacular. The impersonators didn´t sing live and I am happy to report Madonna didn´t look at all like Madonna. And that some people from the club had travelled all the way to Merida to check out the show.
aaaaaaaaaanyway. we had a great night and got picked to dance on the platform upstairs between the movie screens which were filming us simultaneously. Ok I had a good time!!
this mornign I got up and out at 4:45am sooooo I was awake until I sat down in the plane and then booom. Out like a light bulb.
In Mexico city after being chatted up by the armed police guy and after 3 times being told the wrong gate number...I made it to the right gate. connecting flight to honduras. It was the last one of the airport! Like a movie. the last on the left. I couln´t find my flight on the boards which was slightly alarming. So I went straight up to the lady to check with her, is this the counter for Honduras?
the lady took her pager: hola tengo un passagero!!! Hay una mas! ( I have a passenger here, one more passenger, hello! stop the bus)
The bus outside stopped she said: run!!
I did. Bueno. I thought everyone was delayed due to the ¨´fock¨´ (as they called it on the plane) but apparently with different times. I had not spent a second wasting time on the way.
I got the plane.that´s the most important. there is only one flight a day. I curled up again for more snooze.
I woke up for the peanuts with lime. I don´t miss out on any lime...
Anyway, they picked me up here in Honduras. Very nice all good and we waited for the suitcase.
and waited. and waited.
Well, you see, I had made it rather quickly from one plane to the other but my suitcase hadn´t....
tomorrow it should be with me.
I am calm about it, the airport is small, the suitcase was labelled and the circumstances quite clear. Thank God again I arrive 2 days prior to the show.
I am being taken care of, the lounge is lovely and I got the best excuse to go shopping.
I know that often the 'I don´t have anything to wear' wont wash but this time it was actually true!
It´s like the tropical paradise we all dream of. I am sooooooooooo going.
I love this life. I had no idea how amazing central america is. My spanish is improving at lightening speed. I love it here. soooo much.
I am going to hit the pillows of my very big bed. Not literally. Laterally.

Cenotes are underground waterholes in limestone. They exist in Yucatan mainly...amaaazing wonders of this world.
You have to go climb down...as seen below
Or visit a real mexican restaurant with your personal assitant´s family. They maya man in white is her grandad! The sweetest man in the world who speaks english, spanish, frech, german and EUROPEAN.

which is a super cool bar/restaurant playing the greatest hits of the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s. Very cool design, amazingly nice people running it and working in it. They provide special entertainment and hence flew me in from London to perform. I have 3 dancers and a personal assistant. My backstage area is brand new and got customised to my wishes. You will notice clothes hangers in the pictures, these were put up just for me. :-) Hence they get to stay in the picture. Alejandro is a musician and marketing man, he really knows his stuff when it comes to music and promotion and ideas and design and and and. Ricardo, his business partner is best known for the award winning family pizza business Messinas and is the business brain.
My first day consisted of press conference and rehearsals with the dancers with radio interview in the afternoon.
I was on Kiss Fm. Todo el mundo escucha Kiss Fm. And in various publications. Here is an online announcement.
Alex had secured sponsoring deals i.e from Hotel Mision in which I stayed and which I will highly recommend especially for its friendly staff. Apart from clean rooms and pleasant surroundings of course. IF you ever travel to Merida, I am sure they will do a good job making you feel comfortable, too. Merida is great to see many intersting Mexican sights from. Mayan Ruins, cenotes, museums and enjoy a city that is used to tourism but not built on it.
I spoke Spanish and English at the conference. Of course I said some things wrong. I love it. I wanted to refer to Ricardo as the big cheese, so I called him the queso grande. He advised me that "pan grande" would be the correct translation. I found out later that queso in Mexico is used to refer to a woman's private part. So I just called the boss a big pussy!
One for the press. So just in case you wondered why I would be featured in the news.
More press conferences please! Sooo much fun. And hence very motivating to learn the languages. Apparently my spanish is very good. But please speak slowly and keep being that polite! If someone spoke English in London the way I speak Spanish, I don't think people would be as patient. But they really appreciated my efforts.
I also had autograph cards printed and got to sign them after the shows. They really did their thing well. It was something for the Brits to learn from. No offence, but WOW!

I am performing there 4 nights with my bailarins charissimos.
The owners are super nice. My backstage room is amazing.
I get the full star treatment from flowers to fruit basket, from personal assistant to autograph cards. Press conference, news, newspapers...Interviews, photo calls. Invites to family meals, hotel with swimming pool, sight seeing. THey are amaaaaazing here. Simply making this the time of my life. The audience is made up of happy people who like live show and hard chore Madonnna fans who travel the world to seet the Queen of Pop. To me that is the ultimate test. If they like me, I did a good job. But chances are a Madonna fan knows every difference between me and the Queen. I am thrilled to say I have been asked for autographs from these superfans and the showers of compliments feel like rain in the desert to me. Such a relief. Everytime...I must admit. It´s not the easiest job to impersonate Madonna. there are easier things to do. BUt it´s sooooooooo rewarding. Bringing madonna to the people so to speak. I know I am not Madonna. I just think I am.
We had pyrotechnics last night and they looked great and then nearly gassed us! we all ran out backstage to gasp for air. But I had to come back for my enchore...Hanky Panky in stinky stinky. The sound is great, the lights are great. I cannot praise this set up enough. I work wiht 3 different microphones. A wireless one, a retro one on stand and the iconic head set. How freaking cool is that...
My dancers are lovely and my personal assistant a star.
She is wonderful. We spend a lot of time together having fun and then she gets to run around and bring me things, find out stuff, drive me and spoil me rotten. I absolutely love it. This mornign I overslept as my alarm didn´t go off. She picked me up and we had to get me ready in no time. Lizzy gets the iron, irons my trousers and we make it. Lizzy takes me shopping and for tea. I don´t know how I lived without Lizzy before.
It´s great. Today she got to translate the parts I didn´t understand in the press interview. I speak spanish as much as I can. I absolutely love it and what I don´t understand, Lizzy gets to help. She is invaluable.
Ricardo and Alex own Classix FM, the coolest dig in town, they are the nicest people. Can everyone please learn from these guys?
Alex is a musician and such a pro. Things are being done right. We understand each other , even if we didn´t speak the language, we are on the same page. Nothing is a hassle. We like to create great shows so we do. He gets the lights, the mics, the effects, the sound...I do the performing. His word is gospel and he knows what he is talking about.
Ricardo owns other restaurants as well, he knows the business. He is an amazing leader. People forget the big gurus, learn from Ricardo. His family has 27 Messina restaurants between them, they have grown an empire and they work together. Name me anyone who can work with their brothers and sister and parents and be that successful and that nice and that relaxed. Incredible. wonderful.
I love spending time with these people. He got the entire staff up to meet me. that is how you show respect to everyone. We are a team, all of us. I love that. He treats people nicely. Everyone respects him for the right reasons. The pan grande is a good pan.
Everyone has a family here. It´s brilliant. I want one!!
So I had the children of the pueblo come to me and adopted them...
