52-Week Self Portrait Project | 52/23
If we took a holiday, yeah
Took some time to celebrate
Just one day out of life
It would be
It would be so nice
Everybody spread the word
We’re gonna have a celebration
In preparing for Week 23, I was thinking how Janet inspired last week, and how I thought I would keep the homage train going this week with Madonna and Holiday (Celebrate), since we have two right here at the end of the year!.
Madonna was THE icon for me growing up. I would sing and dance to Madonna – I knew every dance and song, and was never shy about belting it out anywhere. My best friend in elementary school and I used to sing songs ranging from Material Girl to Like A Prayer and even got in trouble for singing Like A Virgin while see-sawing on the playground.
Later on, I used to get compared to Madonna, which during the sluttier phase was not always a compliment! LOL!
I think the closest second to Madonna in my childhood was Cindi Lauper…
