Happy Anniversary Madonna!

As many of you know Madonna holds a very special place in my heart. She's more than an entertainer to many of us - she's an inspiration. We just want to congratulate Madonna on 25 years of fabulousness - music, fashion, motherhood and more. We can't wait to see what she has in store for us in the future. Here's more from Madonna's official website:

It may seem like only yesterday but 25 years ago on April 24, 1982, Sire Records honcho Seymour Stein released a single called "EVERYBODY" on Warner Bros. Records by an unknown singer from Rochester, Michigan by the name of Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone. To say the world would never be the same is an understatement. The song went on to become a huge dancefloor hit and was heard all over the radio in the Summer of 1982. That little girl from Michigan would go on to become one of the most famous entertainers and cultural icons in history - selling close to 200 million records and remaining a star of enormous magnitude and influence for the next 25 years. She's just getting started. Long Live the Queen and Happy Anniversary to Madonna.

scottdavis0676 I love me some Madonna. Talk about staying power! She's been performing for over a quarter of a century. I think the secret to her success has been her ability to "reinvent" herself so many times over the years. She is a chameleon. She is also very prescient and an astute business woman to boot. That is why she has been able to stay ahead of the curve for so long. I also think she WAS incredibly sexy in the 1990s. To me her allure was her provocativeness and her rock hard physique. Long live Madonna!

Madonna is amazing. Like her or not she has stayed in the public eye and continues to draw our attention. As a performer she has gotten stronger and what I really admire is that she overcame the clichés that all the current Pop Stars are.. I also admire the fact that she didn't loose it (although some say The Sex Book was her Melting Britney point) I say it was her Middle Finger to Society about Acceptance and Tolerance Hence the acts of sexuality. Today she continues to Tour, Raise children, Keep our attention, and try to make a marriage work. I find her incredibly fascinating and someone who will continue to be a legend even in the after life. Until she becomes comfortable in her own skin then she will be a bore. As we all have come to learn that will never happen...

i think she is older than 40 ohsuri, lol. It wouldn't surprise me if she's like 51 or something.

Paved the way by hanging on crosses? She was a trend setter in her prime yes.. now she is hanging on trying to stay relevant. Being 40 does not make you dried up or whatever... look at Iman...look at Michele Phifer. I can name hundreds of women in there 40's and 50's that are classy and not hypocrites. Do as I say.. not as I do.

I adore Madonna. Always have, always will. She revolutionized the music industry, videos, and in the process she created some amazing music. I saw her on the ray of light tour. She's unbelievable. As a hardcore feminist, I sometimes have trouble with the idea of using your sexuality as a marketing tactic but then again she's was never Britney, sixteen and being told to act naughty (but say you're a virgin!). Madonna was never manipulated, she was never taken advantage of. Everything she did, she did on HER terms with her OWN ideas. That has carried through in her parenting. She's in control. And she's never once given the impression that her music and videos are for YOUR children's consumption, they are for YOU to listen/enjoy/trash/make fun of/dance to. A lot of people just think she's used up and are "over her." But is that really how we should think about women in their late 40's? She should stop trying to be sexy? She should just go quietly raise her kids? I applaud her for continuing to get out there, make new music, look sexy, complete demanding tour schedules. She's what a hot, smart, funny, little bit crazy, opinionated, demanding and assertive woman looks like. And frankly I think it looks fine to me. Cheers madonna!

I never thought of it that way ohsuri. But, I totally agree with you. One of these days those kids are going to see what their crazy mom has done. Same with Brits kids, but she will probably let them watch tv, so they will know their whole life...If you see us in the club we'll be acting real nice if you see us on the floor you'll be watchin all night..
