Happy Birthday to...

... Madonna!

Yes, the Material Mom turns the big 5-0 today, and what an amazing half-century it's been for one of the biggest pop icons ever.

Let's not forget that when we first met the feisty Bay City, MI, native, it was 1982. To put that into perspective:

  • Cell phones were the size of Cadillacs
  • The Soviet Union was at the height of its power
  • Michael Jackson's Thriller was just being released
  • We were taking our fashion cues from Flashdance, Dallas and Dynasty
We could go on and on, but you get the point. Trends have come and gone, but Madonna has managed to hold our fascination for over 25 years, with no end in sight.

Cheers to you, girlfriend!
