Happy Birthday Madonna
Madonna is 60.
She turned 60 on the 16th. She celebrated in Morocco in what looks like a Moroccan Berber costume party, and a few days later she was still in Moroccan Berber mode at the VMA awards (and presented a not so eloquent or elegant tribute to Aretha Franklin, but hey, it's Madonna.)
I remain to be a fan of 1980-90s Madonna. Never got into the music she made this century, apart for a couple of songs I guess, and every time I come across her in the news now, I'm always bemused by her actions instead of admiring her.
Love her or hate her, you can't deny her place in pop culture and music.
Here are my favourite songs/videos. Quite a few ballads here that I've not heard for a while.
I'll leave you with one more Madonna GIF.
