After that I made myself a mixed tape which had all of Madonna's biggest hits from the 80's on it. I would listen to it over and over again but it wasn't until I was around fourteen when I got myself "The Immaculate Collection" CD, my Madonna dedication and collection grew!
Some of my collection to date is:
I own all of her studio and compilation album releases on CD, and some on vinyl, some CD singles, DVD's including movies Madonna has stared in and her live concert tours.
I also own books, calenders, posters, coffee mugs, t-shirts, and magazines.
There's a number of reasons why I love Madonna, of course her music being No 1!
But I also love her ambition, how she can easily re-invent her music and herself, her talent of dancing, singing, acting, directing, writing, producing, the list goes on....
Yes Madonna is well known as being a total bitch! But I believe that's why she has flourished in the music business for so long, as she has never wanted the public to see her "weak side". But as a strong willed female music businesswoman, that's gets the job done!
Since Madonna has became a mother though her "media persona" has somewhat mellowed. As she has previous stated in interview's "Motherhood has changed me".
I can totally tell she loves and adores her four children, Lourdes and Rocco (biological) David and Mercy (adopted).
Madonna has given her children every opportunity for them to live to their highest potential.
Only downside of being a fan of Madonna and living in Australia, I have never seen her "live" in concert, as she never comes here to tour!! The last time she was actually here was back in the year 1993 for "The Girlie Show" tour, but I was too young to see her in concert then!
For the last three years though I've been going to an annual "Madonna dance party", which I totally love going to, as it's just Madonna music, Madonna fans and dancing...so much fun! I've also made some good friends from going to this dance party.
I'm looking forward to the next chapter in Madonna's music career with her new studio album being released sometime next year and then hopefully touring again. But this time actually touring Australia, well one can hope, can't they?
Love or dislike Madonna, she will go down in history as being a true Icon - The Queen of Pop!
Do you believe Madonna is a true music Icon?
Until next time!
