Madonna looked to the Far East to find outfit inspiration — a Gaultier kimono, thank you very much — for her performance of “Nothing Really Matters” at the Grammy Awards in 1999. “The whole idea of Geisha is a great metaphor for being an entertainer because on the one hand you’re privileged but on the other hand you’re a prisoner,” she told Entertainment Tonight. “I always have to get comfortable in front of the camera and get comfortable dancing on twelve-inch platforms.”
