Sophie on Madonna: ‘Her work is so vast – there’s a reference for any situation’

In my mind, Madonna created the blueprint for modern pop stars.

Matt Cain on Madonna: ‘She opened up gay culture to the mainstream’

Madonna was a radical, brilliant pop icon who changed so many people’s lives. Mine included. I grew up in Bolton in the 1980s, at a time when no one wanted to say anything positive about gay people. If we were represented in the media, it was as disease-carrying sexual predators who couldn’t be …

Barbara Ellen on Madonna: ‘Popular culture still reeks of her influence’

Madonna Louise Ciccone is about to turn 60, a “big birthday” by anybody’s reckoning. I remember her at the time of her breakthrough 1983 single, Holiday, a mischievous mess of bangles and swinging crucifixes, boasting that she was so hot that you could fry an egg on her belly button. From that …
