Not Getting the Madonna Thing

Again yesterday, I hear a bunch of people talking about how they ALL flew to Vancouver to see Madonna's concert. It is starting to make me feel like there is something wrong with me. I should WANT to see Madonna in concert. I should NEED to view the grizzle gyrate, like dry ribs in a blender. I didn't KNOW I was supposed to put down EVERYTHING to spend two life altering hours with the only truly talented chortler of pop music in the world, nay, the universe.

I just can't help wondering, am I the only person who doesn't get the whole Madonna thing? Am I the only person in the world who thought Cindy Lauper should have been the bigger star? That's right Cindy Lauper, those of you who know who she is, know from whenst I speak. Girls Just Wanna Have Fun was like a powerful python thrusting up a tree compared to the donkey climbing the Grand Canyon that Like a Virgin was. Ok, they are both pedantic, but I like my pop songs sparkly, not scanky.

Or maybe it was the fact that by the time Madonna got super sizzling hot in the 90's I was already too old to care. And I think it has a little to do with the fact that I just don't think she is a good singer. Or an interesting person. I just don't understand how people can get excited about someone who is so chameleon like, doesn't seem to be able to turn way from a relentless desire to be on top, and has slowly over the years turned themselves into Victor/Victoria.
