Madonna hates everyone in 1991 letter

Madonna, in her own words

A letter written by Madonna in 1991 reveals her frustration with her cast mates of A League of Their Own. The Madonna letter paints an unflattering picture of the superstar.

Madonna

In a 1991 letter to famed photographer Steven Meisel, Madonna aired her grievances with A League of Their Own costar Geena Davis, actresses in general, and the entire city of Chicago.

Madonna, who was trying to convince Meisel to work with her on a project that would become her book Sex, wrote the following:

"Dear Steven,

For some reason I thought you were angry with me -- because I finked out as a judge at the "Love Ball"? Because I'm still nice to Herb Ritts?? Because my hair is the wrong color? I hope you will forgive me for all of the above. Because I cannot suffer any more than I have in the past month learning how to play baseball with a bunch of girls (yuk) in Chicago (double yuk). I have a tan, I am dirty all day and I hardly ever wear make-up. Penny Marshall is Lavern -- Geena Davis is a Barbie doll and when God decided where the beautiful men were going to live in the world, he did not choose Chicago. I have made a few friends but they are athletes, not actresses. I hate actresses, they have nothing on the house of extravaganza. I wish I could come to N.Y and visit. Are you having a good Summer? Saw the piece in the N.Y Times Magazine. Great!! -- I would love to do this book thing with you so lets talk soon.

THANKS ALOT STEVEN!!

Love Dita"

Dita was the name of Madonna's hypersexual alter-ego in the highly controversial art book. And where is this "house of extravaganza" of which she speaks? It's not a where, it's a who -- the troupe of dancers featured in Madonna's highly stylized video for Vogue.
