Madonna's VOGUE Turns 30 Comments (0)

Madonna's “Vogue,” one of the best singles of the past 50 years, is 30 years old today, March 27.

It remains a huge part of her legacy, and — increasingly, over time — reflects a shining portion of a greater American-music and queer legacy as well.

One thing I love about Madonna is her references. Some, with little imagination, call them rip-offs and try to argue that she's stolen, as if every artist is not beholden to their inspirations. No artist has been more forthcoming about showing her work; it's part of her connection to her fans, sharing with us her interests via this common pop cultural language — or introducing them to us in cases where they are news to us.

Never does she come off as wanting to pass something off as new that is old; rather, she wants us to see what new spin she had given something classic. That's one definition of art.

“Vogue is a perfect example of her approach: Madonna talked about the queer scene from which “Vogue was born in every interview about the song back in 1990, when it would have been easier to avoid turning people off with the gay. (Hard as it is to remember, it was not always a wise career move to align oneself so publicly and explicitly with anything queer.)

And in the song itself, she lists 16 Golden Age of Hollywood figures who inspired her and who, let's not forget, inspired the queer voguers of the '60s, '70s and '80s to begin with.

Tom Steyer Throws Away His S.C. Buy-Out With ... This Comments (0)

Nixon sweating, Bush I's readable lips, Dukakis in a tank, Kerry wind-sailing, the Dean scream and now ... Tom Steyer trying to dance. P.S. Steyer doesn't register in any state except South Carolina, where he has poured a shit-ton of ad money. To what end? He will only weaken Biden, who is still expected to win big.
