Well, now that my Jonny is gone, I'm back to facing reality and sinking in my own miserable life.
So, today, I immersed myself in fabulousness to avoid drowning in my self-pity. I watched old Madonna music videos.
I recently purchased her entire box set of 1980s music videos/concerts/interviews.
Growing up, I had always been a huge Madonna fan. I was lucky enough to become obsessed with her in the early 90s when she was still fairly young and raising eyebrows with her raunchy misbehavior.
I'm not going to give you her full biography because I think she's famous enough where everybody knows it.
In a nutshell: Madonna was born in Michigan in 1958 and moved to NYC in 1977. Her goal was to be a dancer but a twist of fate led her to become one of the biggest pop stars in the world. She released her first album in 1983 (I actually could be wrong here, I'm writing this all from memory and I'm too lazy to check that specific year).
She changed the music world forever.
I love me some Britney and Lady Gaga, but let's face it. They will never come close to touching Madge.
I wish that I had been old enough during the 1980s to appreciate Madonna's legendary sense of style. I would have preferred wearing leather jackets and tutus in high school over the Britney Spears crop tops and flared glitter jeans I wore during the late 1990s.
Which is probably why I wear leather jackets and tutus when I'm out partying now, in my twenties. I think it's more acceptable to dress like Madonna at street parties rather than high schools these days, right?
Do you like Madonna's 1980s style?
