Confessions on a...

I vividly remember the first time I ever heard of Madonna. It was around January 1984 in T.O. and we were hanging out at the now defunct Chez Cappuccino. A then up-and-coming photographer/barista named Carol LeFlufy zealously played a tape she just brought back from New York. I was immediately smitten with this album. I LOVED them all...Borderline, Lucky Star, Burning Up, Holiday, Everybody - it all made for some serious groovin'.

Moreover, I loved Ms. Ciccone's look, hence she became one of my fashion icons in the 80's. Madonna's uninhibited sense of style certainly made a lifelong impression and as we ripen I evolve right along with her.

Celeb or not, we've all had our bad days, phases or whatever and this music video of Hung Up definitely represents one of them. If we cannot laugh at ourselves, especially on a dance floor, then what's the point?
