"Cone Bra." "Feisty." "Innovative." "Re-invention." These are the words my colleagues used to describe Madonna, who today turns 53. For me, Madonna, born Madonna Louise Ciccone - is more than the words, my colleagues used to describe her. She's more than just the buff blonde dancing on stage with ridiculously good-looking men and women. She's more than the world's top selling female artist (Lady GaGa, keep trying). She's more than what the tabloids show her to be - ballsy, bull-headed and your other occasional "B" word.
The other day, my father asked me what my favorite movie of all time was. Without hesitation, Back to the Future, I said. "But that's three movies," he told me. I shook my head. "No matter." To me it was one magical joy ride of great lines, awesome effects (for the time) and lovely close-ups of Michael J. Fox.
