well i can safely say she is one of the few artists of the 20th century that has lived their life to the fullest and reached their potential

funny how she opted to turn down the lifetime achievement award at the risk of being labelled 'old' and 'unfashionable'

but having lasted 20 yrs i guess you have to top your hat off to her, she always had her share of critics in whatever she did: her music, her continuous changing image, the books she writes

there have been many comers, and goers, like debbie gibson, tiffany, and now we have a huge wave of britney, aguilera, jessica simpson and mandy moore. they have all been nothing but try hards; the diet coke of madonna: one calorie, not madonna enough

anyway its the music that matters, she started off all happy and teeny boppy with 'Holiday', 'Lucky Star', 'Material Girl', 'Into The Groove'

and gradually the music became darker and more atmospheric and cerebral with 'Ray Of Light', 'BedTime Story' and 'Erotica'

i guess her key ingredient has always been her ability to write catchy tunes without ever sounding like youre pretending to like it, and also her throaty voice which has been so effective. then again, name another artist who's been so er.. daring in their music videos?

I like Madonna heaps- all of her music makes me want to get up and dance- although I think that what I hear of her personality that she might be a bit of a controling bitch at times- but hey she has put out some great tunes over the years....

Ray of light is one of my fave songs ever

I love her regardless of what she puts out. She's great. For someone to accomplish what she has in her lifetime is fabulous. I hope she continues to joy us with the music.

Ever seen an Alice with a stem like that? Come to think of it, did you ever see an Alice??

Personality-wise- I don't like her.

Music-wise- I think she's an incredible artist. And I think her albums keep on getting better and better.

'Into the Groove' is one of the greatest pop songs ever. That song makes me cry.

I like her dance era. In the early days, I would have considered her a cardboard character who just wanted to exhibit herself. NOW, she still is an exhibitionist but! a whole personality as well, in terms of her attitude, her looks, her message, everything. Like Andy Warhol was.

It's hard to describe Madonna. No one can ever be like her.

It is true that some songs of hers are just so crappy but I think in her case, it's more of the delivery than the package.

I love Madonna's music, although I find the woman herself fascinating rather than likeable. You just gotta admire her drive and ambition.
