0043. Madonna

Madonna is a pop star known for her most popular music released in the 1980's. She was a figure of scandal because of her unapologetic sexuality. In the mid eighties, her presence was seen influencing mainstream fashion, and caused an upset with families with her hit "Like a Virgin." She is recognized at her most iconic by her "cone bra" that was a fixture of her Blonde Ambition tour in 1990.

Don't think for a second I don't have the music video for Like a Virgin burned into the "I'm-too-young-to-be-watching-this" part of my brain.  MTV was in a wonderful period when I was a kid, and I like to think it shaped a lot of who I grew up to be as an artist. Madonna was no small part of that.
