    Madonna, a shrewd business women is amazingly creative, hardworking and a perfectionist. She is one of the best pop and recording artist of all time.

    =the music industry (the bigs) is in a sad state. The cd selection is really limited in stores also. The only positive I see is vinyl sales for the big acts and many smaller acts getting notoriety on the internet and making small money off internet (iTunes etc) sales. The music itself have never been better if you know what to look for. Popular music pushed by the media is mostly refurbished unoriginal crap.

    Van Halen cancelled about half of their tour dates and still was #4. =Madonna is obviously physically and mentally stronger than hard-rockers at this point it seems.

    I also see people going old school in the stereo equipment (pre Dolby Digital) =Getting away from 5.1/7.1/8.1 and going to a more of a direct line out with little to no processing. Time to bust out the records/vinyls once again and maybe even go mono.

    And sticks her middle finger to those who call her over the hill and irrelevant. She has the last laugh.

    Sorry but she can't sing and never could. Creative as in good at riding waves that others created. Proof positive that talent and commercial success are not the same thing.
