On this day, in 1958, pop music royalty was spawned in the relatively small town of Bay City, Michigan. Madonna Louise Ciccone, one of only five people in this hierarchy, joining her in the 80’s was Michael Jackson as undisputed king of pop until his death in 2009. Britney Spears as princess of pop from 1998-present and Justin Timberlake as prince, in’N Sync format then solo, from 1997-present AND Lady Gaga as the new queen of pop? Or co-headlining princess.
Either way, Madonna’s no spring chicken. Even years of yoga, vegan diet and sleeping in a plastic coffin filled with lotion (As former husband Guy Ritchie reported) she is starting to look her age, well, within 7 years of it.

You’ve been with Sean Penn, Dennis Rodman, Sandra Bernhard, Guy Ritchie, A-Rod, Jesus Luz (Nearly 30 years her junior) and now Brahim Zaibat, also in his 20’s. The woman has a stigma surrounding her, you can’t deny it. And without her who knows what shape or form pop music would be in, maybe only P!nk and Avril Lavigne would exist?

Don’t drink too much blood! Errr, I mean, gluten-free cake.
Here’s a Madonna photo history slideshow that is completely out of order, you’re welcome…
