I went to the Madonna concert in Chicago on Sunday 6/18 and about 10 minutes before the concert began, Kanye West and his entourage sat next to me. He was with a bodyguard, a male friend, and a cute model-type black girl who must have been his date. The crowd started noticing him, but no one really did anything except take his picture. I decided to be brave and walked up to him and asked him if he would sign my Madonna ticket stub. He grudgingly said, “Alright…” and proceeded to scribble out a barely legible signature. I’m not really a Kanye West fan, but I thought it would make a good story. Once the concert started, Kanye seemed to really be enjoying it. Who knew he was a Madonna fan?
