Mad respect for Madonna! At the time she put herself on the map with “Material Girl” I hadn’t grown to the level of understanding and awareness just yet that the song’s lyrics might be a sarcastic statement and criticism as to the status quo in the music industry in particular and society in general. Looking at her career spanning three decades and having remained on the billboards and touring for all these years and still doing it while not compromising her stance is an almost intimidating reference to willpower, stamina and character. Mad respect!
