Madonna

Oh my god, Madonna ripped off Marilyn Monroe??!!??! I'll never look at her in the same way again. Best sell all my CDs on ebay and give the proceeds to Aisha's Bandstock's account.

I think her Monroe images could be classed as an homage, but she did rip off Ingrid Chavez's Justify My Love, and deceased artist Guy Bourdin's work for the Hollywood video.

There is a fine line between being influenced by, and 'ripping off', it would seem.

There is no way she "ripped off" the 'Hollywood' video - the images were exactly the same! Did she honesty expect, being the world's most famous woman and all, that nobody would notice? Of course not. It was obviously a tribute, not a rip-off.

Would you say Justify My Love is a tribute to Ingrid Chavez?

I think I can categorically state that Madonna's name is a tribute to Jesus' Mother.

No, but I was talking about the 'Hollywood' video.
 
Music is my favourite Madonna album, it's the only album where I like all the songs from start to finish (if I exclude American Pie right at the end!!!)

Don't know if that's a controversial opinion or not!

Say what you want about Glee, but all these tweets by teen Gleeks like "I never cared for Madonna, but these are good songs!" plus the adds for Celebration in the add breaks make me love their Madonna tribute even more.

Will they actually buy Celebration though, or will they just buy the Glee versions on that EP? That's the question.

Yes it is.. but I'm sure at least a few of them will youtube the originals, and the Celebration ads must have helped a bit!

Didn't Celebration return to the US Top 40?

Quite possibly next week, it's not there right now. If it did that's great, almost makes up for the fact that the reason it's there is bloody Glee.
 
The Glee Madonna album is #1 on UK iTunes, but more importantly, "Celebration" has shot up from #93 to #12 in the space of an hour!

I detest Glee with a passion, but I'd love it if they did a Leona song!

Wow, that's quick.
It's only a matter of time before record companies pay big time to determine which songs will be used in the next Glee episode.
