Queen Of Pop

I'm tough, ambitious, and I know exactly what I want. If that makes me a bitch, okay. - Madonna

I have posted about my fascination with Lady Gaga, so it only seems fitting that I give credit where credit is due and where powerful, iconic women of music began... all hail the Queen of Pop: MADONNA!

I recently watched the Glee (my new favorite show) episode, The Power of Madonna and then proceeded to listen to 90 minutes of her music while I worked out and remembered why she is so good.

I fell in love with Madonna in 1983 upon hearing the first 48 seconds of Borderline and haven't stopped yet.

I have been lucky enough to see her in concert... twice. The last time was the night President Elect Obama was voted into office. It was a memorable night!

Say what you will about Madonna's fashion sense and in your face, like it or not, sexual overtones, she sings about equality regardless of race, color, creed, sexual orientation or political affiliation and demands respect for the constant reinvention of herself and her music.

She encourages everyone to "express themselves" and in the process sells millions of albums shocking and awing us along the way.

If you haven't listened to her in a while, I encourage you to dust off your Immaculate Collection CD and give it a whirl. I guarantee you'll want to get up and dance, or at the very least smile.

Madonna's latest project is a clothing line called "Material Girl" launching this month at Macy's department stores. Let's hope cone bras aren't included!

The best is yet to be.

Cone bras, wouldn't THAT be something that should stay in the 80's! I think Madonna's music will continue to be relevant for years to come. You have made me want to add a few of the old favorites to my ipod for working out! I saw her in concert once, probably about 3 years ago...what a show!

I could use a cone bra :) but I should definitely look into downloading some of her stuff...

LOL. Tonya, I don't know if my eyes crossed when I saw the post title, but I totally thought it said Queen of Poop. LOL. Madonna is amazing. Anyone who can run around a church in lingerie with burning crosses in the background, acquire the stigmata, make out with religious statues (making them come to life) AND not be completely black listed is simply unstoppable.

I bet her concerts were amazing! She's the ultimate performer!

Who is her target market for her clothing line, I wonder? Should be interesting.

Yep, Madonna's an icon. I think I just might have to dust off some of her tunes and remember why we all idolized her so much back in the day! Bet the music is just as good now as it was then :)

I smiled from ear to ear watching Glee's Power of Madonna!

I LOVE Madonna and after reading this, I definitely listened to her on the treadmill for a run and it totally rocked! She is timeless! If I could go to a private concert with any artist, I would definitely pick her! Especially if I got to chat with her after the performance. She is amazing!
