Buttknuckle: kanesays: And Madonna isn't worth the peanuts in the shiate of any of those individuals she name dropped.I beg to differ. Whether you like her or not, she is an icon.

stanhapsburg: So is everyone mentioned in both versions of "Candle In The Wind".
Dear Jerk: My dad grew up across the street from where Jean Harlow's grandpa had a real estate office and as a child, she was in there from time to time. But I don't think Madonna has done anything with Kevin Bacon.
cyberspacedout: One of the lyrics is "Rita Hayworth gave good face."Yeah, you can probably all guess what I was thinking there.
Ed Grubermann: stanhapsburg: So is everyone mentioned in both versions of "Candle In The Wind".I think he's up to fifteen versions of that farking song.
Cybernetic: The question to ask is "Why is she an icon?" or "What does she represent?"
