Madonna's Like a Prayer turns 30 today, which is something I wish I could say about myself!

It's truly mind-boggling to think this album has been with us so long. I vividly remember buying it and being blown away by the entire thing, by Madonna's growth as an artist. My college dorm advisor, a dad in his thirties and an ex-hippie, made a point of telling me (I went to the University of Chicago, were everyone was an egghead and I was this kid with a room covered in Madonna posters) that he was shocked by how musically refined Like a Prayer was. He was impressed.

Irene Cara is 60 today!

In a way, it's amazing she's so young, since she snuck in at the end of the disco era, and already had a Grammy, Golden Globe and even an Oscar before anyone had heard of Madonna, for example, but it's also surprising she's a sexagenarian because she'll always be that slip of a girl with the moves in my mind.

Full CK Ad Starring Shawn Mendes, Noah Centineo, A$AP Rocky & Others Comments (0)

I find this ad so painfully beautiful to look at, but otherwise just so painful to endure. It reeks of having been created by middle-aged people trying to capture youth on film (and trying to capture youth dollars). These young musicians living in a communal home would never have even heard of New Order, let alone be singing along to them. Plus, keep A$AP Rocky away from a mic unless he's speaking or rapping ...
