Today my Icon Madonna turns 60, wow time has gone so fast. The first time I saw Madonna she was on Top of the Pop's and it was a video of Like A Virgin, she was on a gondola I thought who is this fantastic women, I must have been about 11 and since then I have loved her. I have bought her Records and tapes (remember them?) as I went into my teenage years I started to dress like her I had my hair cut like her's in the Open Your Heart video, except my hair was dark, and when Like a Prayer was released I had a perm and parted it in the middle. I even dared to get my Mother's rosary beads and wore them and got into terrible trouble with my Mum. I have uploaded a picture of some of the records that I have bought over the years I do have a few missing can't find them anywhere, my 12" copy of Borderline that was given to me by my first proper boyfriend I cannot find anywhere I hope I didn't burn it when he dumped me sigh.
The True Blue cassette I bought with five pounds left over from my holiday money from Italy when I was 14, I hung on to that five pound note determined not to spend a penny of it. The next day when I arrived back in the country I got the bus to town were I bought my golden copy of True Blue. I was the first one of my friends to have it and was asked so much can I borrow it , NO! The only thing unbelievably is that I have never been to a concert why I do not know..... but maybe there is still time though because I think this Lady is going no where.
