I'm not a huge fan of Madonna by any means but she's by no means a joke (something Courtney personifies) You have to respect Madonna for the fact that she is the one of the only recording artists that started in the 80's that has never faltered in a major way in terms of popularity or record sales.... look at the charts in the 80's and who was huge then (not just one hit wonders , but big stars) where are any of them now ? Michael Jackson , Phil Collins. Maybe only U2 & Bruce Springsteen have been able to maintain that kind of popularity, but they were never really "pop stars" in the same sense. I guess Prince is still popular but he's had his ups & downs.. So I have to give Madonna credit for that much, its not an easy feat.

Yes, Madge is a joke musically, just not a very funny one.

It's funny how people like to say insulting things to eachother on cute little message boards like this, but when they come face to face it's all smiles. This Madonna tribute is genius and it goes to charity. Okay, zit face?
