Love her or hate her, there’s no denying Madonna is a living icon who is celebrating her 60th birthday today.
I remember watching the video for Like a Virgin for the very first time back in 1984 with my sisters and just thinking it was outrageous, with its salacious lyrics and her outrageous fashion. Looking back now, it was the ’80s in a nutshell. But of course, the media went wild for it – news reports, shock, and outrage, and the assertion that it was just a passing fad; that Madonna would fade fast. Boy were they wrong!
Happy Birthday Madonna!
Maybe the powers that be should make her birthday into some sort of holiday from here on out! We need a holiday…it would be so nice!
Still my favourite Madonna song!
