Madge Is OK

Alright, something I’ve got to get off my chest.  I don’t hate Madonna.  In fact, I might hum along to a couple of her songs (“Material Girl”, “Into The Groove.”) Her bit on SNL in a Wayne’s World sketch was priceless. She even did some impressive fundraising and education on AIDS, at a time when many celebrities ran from the stigma of the disease.  I don’t much care for anything she’s done this century–music, acting, adoptions, faux religions.  But she’s earned her place in the pop culture. 

However, she kicked ass at her induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame on Monday.  She didn’t perform, but she had her Detroit homies The Stooges perform punked-up versions of a couple of her songs. Iggy and the boys have been ignored by the Hall for induction and this was a nice way to point that out.
