Madonna: Aug. 16, 1958

It's Madonna's birthday.

She turns 47 today, if you can believe that. Although she's mysteriously developed an English accent and changed her name to Esther, I still think she's pretty American icon.

Also of note, she married Sean Penn twenty years ago today. God, I'm getting old b/c I remember that. Yikes.

Anyway, Happy Birthday, Madonna!!


  • Holy cow! Twenty years? I'm sooooo old.

  • She's also the exact same height as Joan Crawford, FYI.

    I'm so old that I remember when "Lucky Star" was cutting edge. OK, maybe it was never cutting edge, but to this Mesa, Arizona then-13-year-old, it sure as hell SEEMED cutting edge.

    Sigh. I want to watch the "Live to Tell" video RIGHT NOW.

  • I love Madonna. Did you hear that she fell off her horse today & broke several bones?

  • I just read that her horse dumped her and she broke several bones. What a way to celebrate!

  • Maybe the horse got confused by her accent.

  • I am so feeling like finally Madonna and I have something in common! Ever since she lost control of her horse, I feel we are BF's!

  • I still have fond memories of my sister teaching me to dance to "Holiday" in my gran's front room, before we'd run downstairs to put on a "show" for the Aunts, Uncles etc. *reaches for the botox* Tx

  • I have a feeling my roommate has declared her bday a national holiday.

  • I feel a strong connection to Madonna since we're both from Michigan...that and we both enjoy doing fake british accents.

  • She's every woman. I loved that Live to Tell video too. But what about Papa Don't touching.

    I wish Esther a fast recovery!
