As a teenager I had a fascination with Madonna like a lot of other girls my age – she had no voice, was not a beauty, no particular artistic talent beside being very bold and dressing in a great way long before she got surrounded by stylists or fashion designer friends to polish her choices and looks. Of course I would have loved to shock and get dressed like her in class, but at 10 years old that would have been over the top in the school were everybody had navy uniforms and light blue shirts. But Madonna Louise Ciccone worked hard, danced amazing, had a solid sense of what she really wanted and was very comfortable with herself, which made her so popular among millions of shy teenagers.
And this is the way I’d like to keep her in mind for today – happy birthday, Madge!
