    Blue Prince got a reaction from char in What Madonna means to me   
    That was a nice text to read from a fellow young fan! Well, I am 21 and I think I was also your age when I heard Rain. It was during a midday radio show and that specific day it was dedicated to songs about rain :P I really liked it, even though I was still mad about 4 minutes back then. Everybody was, right? Then, during summer 2011 I discovered COADF and over the next few years I got to listen to most of her albums (except maybe Like A Virgin).
    Well, what she means to me is that you can be who you want to be. You just have to try hard. You don't have to rely on people's opinions about you or just your looks or the universe to bring it to you while you procrastinate. You work and you get it! Also to ask questions. Like why is this supposed to be wrong? She taught me that the obvious answer "because people say so" is never satisfactory. And that it's important to be around smart people with vision and learn from them. To speak your mind. Would I like her to be a bit more careful with her words sometimes? Of course, but it doesn't really matter :P Because she fears not, at least she seems to, and I try to be more like that as I tend to get scared about anything.
    And during our times, when it gets so tiring to hear new names in music, tunes with no meaning most of the time and no artistic vision, it's great to have her around. To know that some values persist and not everything today just comes and goes. I can always listen to a different album of hers and enjoy lyrics and melodies that apply to my life today, which I think is amazing. By the way, they are American Life and Erotica these days! Another funny thing is that when I want to chill out but still feel smart I watch some of her interviews and it really opens up my mind. Like what are you going to hear today from most of your faves? What drug they did then, who they are dating, hollow stuff all the time. 
    Uhm, that's just about it. I don't live my life through her and don't follow her blindly but she is definitely my favourite artist out there and I think a good role model for me. If I grow up to be a good person, I will know for sure that in part it's because of her!

    I listened to You'll See quite a lot during the time I was deciding to leave home as a youngster, to get away from stoopid family members. It was one of the few cds I took with me when I packed my rucksack and walked out the door. 
    Whenever I was feeling like I couldn't go on anymore, Die Another Day was kind of my go-to song. The lyrics could easily be applied to the situation, "I guess I'll find another way, it's not my time to go."
    Ray of Light was always my pick-me-up song. Uplifting, energetic and you could sing and dance to it like a mental patient (yay!) and still feel so happy. I liked that

    Blue Prince reacted to Enrico in Motivational Madonna songs   
    When I was at Uni, I used to listen to Express yourself before an exam. They all went very well!
    In 2007 I faced a very dark period, I was heartbroken, I hated myself, and I can really say that the release of Hey You saved my life. I know many don't like that song, but it really helped me to go on and to hold on.
    In general, I find that You'll see is one of the most motivational songs. Maybe because I was never able to find a true partner in my life, so I can relate to the lines "all by myself... I know I'll survive" etc.

    I love how music have the power of motivate people, that's why I never stop to discover more and more interesting artists! 
    About our Queen, which songs have the most motivational lyrics? That inspires you, to love, fight for your dreams? Or makes you feel happy after a sad moment?
    For me I have lots of songs but I guess Vogue and Living for Love are two strong songs, always cheer me up!

    When I first noticed Madonna, she was purely entertaining to me (in 1985; Lucky Star/Into The Groove). I was captured by her persona on posters and in her videos.
    Then she became a role-model in outspokenness (Papa Don't Preach) and self-confidence, and has remained in this role for me ever since, reinforcing it time and time again (Like A Prayer/Express Yourself/Why's It So Hard/Human Nature/American Life etc.). She became a role-model as somebody who questions society, expands personal horizons, not afraid of experimenting in terms of sexuality and spirituality. She stood up for herself, co-wrote her music and lyrics, everything had a deeper layer/meaning.
    Her live performances captured me the most. Her fiery energy and talent, her fearlessness to provoke and shock has impressed  me for life. As was said before, her interviews showed how intelligent she is, I did learn a lot from her just paying attention to what she had to say. 
    She has had such a vital influence on personal lives and society's standards. A sheer force of nature. So inspiring, time and time again.

    Can not really say what Madonna means to me...she has been there for the largest part of my life... I have used her music when I have been happy, when I have been sad... I have enjoyed her concert... and have even meet my husband of 20 years because we both were Madonna fans.... I do not follow her private life much anymore... for me it is mostly about the music.. and Madonna's music will continue to be a part of my life until the end... and I'll keep supporting her music until that day arrives ;-)

    @Blue PrinceWell that really was a pleasure to read!
    Regarding being fearless: I definitely needed some lessons and examples in that, too!
    Regarding working hard: I suppose she is indeed one of the reasons I am working hard on accomplishing my career plans.
    Regarding being a good person: she really shows it is about what you do and not what you say, no? Actions are where we need to channel our kindness, while words can be used as weapons to fight prejudice and injustice.
    Her interviews: I like to listen to them too. I don't agree with everything she says, but at least she says things that are very intriguing and unusual.
    Also I think discovering her changed my views on female beauty. I was very superficial in that aspect. We live in a time where it is natural to become superficial in that. But now I find that a woman's strength, talent, intelligence, courage are the most appealing qualities. So I guess she is my favourite artist, my role model in certain things, but also my unrequited love interest

    I didn't exist when Madonna's greatest hits came out – I am twenty years old. But the first time I heard The Rain, I think I was 14 then, I just had to know who was singing it. This is when I discovered Power Of Goodbye, Frozen, and so many more amazing songs.
    I learned that unlike so many other pop singers, Madonna actually wrote these songs. Her grace and beauty in the song videos was amazing. I was very surprised to read in Wikipedia that "She later attended Rochester Adams High School where she became a straight-A student". I actually know a person who studied in that high school, it is one of the most competitive in the US, where students are prepared to apply to Ivy League colleges. Straight-A in a high school like that is NOT COMMON.
    This is when I started thinking that Madonna is definitely not a pop star like the others. She has very high IQ, is a powerhouse of willpower, writes amazing personal songs that touch me deeply. I find it amazing how she stands for what she believes in and actually puts effort in it: women rights, education in Africa, fighting stupid prejudice every step of the way. At 60 she is still the most beautiful woman, and still full of amazing strength.
    I know she can hear the loud trolls and haters who have issues with her age (!!!!), her openness and just the fact that she has opinions. I wonder if she knows how loved she is by people of all genders, ages and races. I know many people my age who adore her. She has been called by an ex-husband "domineering and castrating" but honestly so many young men would love nothing more than to be her servants in male chastity :) A woman should be allowed to be strong and expressing her opinions. And a woman that combines strength with artistic talent, great voice, inner and outer beauty, very high intelligence and so much desire to give and help... deserves our admiration.
