Madonna, Moral Arbiter
In what must be some bizarre crossover event from an alternate universe, Madonna is now warning people that they "are going to go to hell, if they don't turn from their wicked behavior."
Is this the same woman who changed the bustier from an undergarment to an outergarment? The same one who so perfectly epitomized the 1980s, the Decade of Self? Who published the book "Sex"? The same one whose picture you might find in a dictionary, illustrating the word "raunchy"? Who spawned wannabes Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, and Lil' Kim? And to add insult to injury, inflicted us with Evita?
There are a lot of other people out there destroying the culture and morality - pretty much everyone involved in gangsta rap comes to mind. However, those people are not turning around and telling the fans who financed their empire that they are going to hell for emulating the entertainers behavior.
I will give anyone credit for turning their life around, even one who has profited as thoroughly from her conversion as Madonna has. (Chuck Colson is a far better example of a changed life.) Madonna went from the personification of hedonism to a quasi-mystic mother and wife, but adulthood includes taking responsibility for your actions. If she doesn't like the popular culture, she has herself to thank for it.

|What I find most irritating is the media ass-kissers who take her seriously. She wouldn't be a "quasi-mystic mother and wife" if the media hadn't made her out to be such.
When you get down to it, this is just another skanky WOP from Detroit.
