Madonna to her critics: Eat me, bitches



Today is Madonna's 52nd birthday. On this occasion, aside from looking at the above photograph of her at her birthday party in London (a week after a film extra declared her an old lady), I suggest you read Shiny & New's recent post on Get Together, Madonna herself, and how her music fits into his life.

One of the great "last laughs" is knowing that when some young kid calls you old or tired, you hold the upper hand. Because if that kid is LUCKY enough to live to be old, the story line will come full circle. That kid will eventually understand that what makes someone old has little to do with a number. Regardless of her face or body, Madonna is not likely to grow old anytime soon. Although some of her moves in the defiance of age have disappointed me, Madonna has always been about tenacity of spirit.
