Interview Magazine’s interview with Madonna is one of the more interesting interviews that I have read in last month or two.  I suppose from being a huge Madonna fan in the early 80’s before I attended high school, when tape cassettes had taken over the vinyl record world and songs like “Papa Don’t Preach” and “Like a Virgin” were considered controversial, I’m a bit biased about her work and impact.  Although, I’m not sure anyone can deny the impact she had over pop culture.

Legend, Dick Clark, from American Bandstand had Madonna on his show in 1984.  Already well known, and getting ready to shoot to superstardom, Madonna said “she wanted to rule the world.”  I believe she has done just that in the music, fashion, art, and entertainment world.  I believe if Michael Jackson can be called the King of Pop, Madonna has earned the title, “Queen of Pop.”
