Madonna is an Icon – Part Two
Here are more entries we got in for the Madonna Like An Icon contest. Five entries will be picked by our team and will receive a copy of Cherish: Madonna Like An Icon, the book by David Foy, courtesy of Ivy Publishing. The book has just been released in the US on April 30th:
Madonna is an icon for her ability to constantly change and stay ahead of the game. She’s always looking for the future and never dwells on the past. She stands up for what she believes in and doesn’t apologize for it. She truly is the Queen!
• GiuseppeMadonna is an icon for me because, in addition to representing the power of music, symbolizes the people, at the same time is able to express the freedom and transgression that is in each of us, together with the respect and a sense of humanity for people.
Madonna is an Icon for me because she has built a “glittering” career all by itself, being able to become a legend in 30-year career! Her concerts are some real amazing shows, combining music, dance and acting like no one else can do! In addition to the artist, Madonna knows how to be an example of a compassionate person proving the commitment that puts the fight for the rights, and education of the poorest! I follow her since 1985 and his love for her has never fallen, in fact, grows more and more as time goes on!
I first came to like Madonna’s music, with songs such as Into the groove and Papa don’t preach, without knowing who she was or watching her videos. So you may say that her iconic image wasn’t important for me. However, Madonna is an ICON for me because no matter what image she chose to have, or the colour of her hair, the style of her clothing, there has always been a message related to it: especially to find happiness inside myself, to never give up, to love the others, to have courage to express myself. She’s not only a singer, she’s a teacher, and that’s the real road to immortality!!

I grew up in South Bend, IN and always knew that I was a little bit different from my friends as a young boy. While they were all infatuated with Hot Wheels, superhero movies, and sports…I had one solitary obsession: Madonna. She was so fascinating and heroic to me at a time in my life when I was struggling with being gay and an outcast. In many ways, she was my superhero.
I remember seeing the video for “Express Yourself” for the first time. Although I was only five, the memory is etched into my brain forever. She was powerful, beautiful, and in charge. I wasn’t completely aware of the symbolism and meaning of the song until a few years later, but I knew it was important. I knew she stood for something that was positive.
As I grew, so did Madonna and my love for her. She taught me about self-expression, confidence, and the joys of the dance floor. In many ways, Madonna saved my life. She spoke directly to her gay fans long before it was widely accepted to do so. Instead of feeling ashamed of myself, Madonna offered hope and acceptance for me to cling onto. And I haven’t even mentioned the amazing amounts of flawless pop songs she’s crafted over the years.
I saw her three times during her most recent MDNA Tour. Being front row, looking into her eyes was a surreal experience for me. I think she is the most beautiful, fierce, intelligent, and interesting celebrity we have in our modern world. A living legend of epic proportions. I’m incredibly thankful and in debt to Madonna for all of the good she’s brought to my life. This is why she’s an icon in my eyes.
I am writing you to enter into the contest for the Madonna Icon Book Contest. Its my birthday tomorrow (May 1), and every birthday I go through a major event or life change in my life that somehow coincides with Madonna’s career in some way. This year, I just moved into a new home after 8 years. I had to do a very sad thing this time. I donated my entire Madonna CD collection of 85 pieces for a charity auction in NYC so help raise money for AIDS affected individuals. As Madonna has always been an advocate for AIDS, I know she would be proud for my actions. It was a tough detachment for me, decades work of collecting every single release, special editions, tour editions, international releases… the list goes on and on – I had stacked them proudly in my living room for everyone to see. As Madonna is about to launch a secret project in the near future, I can only hope to have a copy of the this book to proudly display in my living room – in memory of my CD collection that has helped somebody else less fortunate, and in memory for what Madonna stands for and values she strives to uphold herself: hard work, charity, ambition, determination, and to do your very best in everything you do. Values I’d like to be reminded of with the representation of this book, not only for my birthday, but for the rest of this wonderful year.
Madonna is an Icon to me because she has been a part of every phase in my life,
From the not so sure teen to the strong willed man I am today. Her voice and songs have been my soundtrack. She has showed me how important it is to give back to others.
As she grows, I feel I grow also.
• JuanMadonna is a trailblazer in the music industry and a true Icon in every sense of the word.
Why she is such an Icon to me is almost beyond what mere words can describe. She is with me when I want to dance and be silly. She is the shoulder I cry on when I am sad and low. And she is the rock that I rely on to pick myself up. In a way, she is more than just an artist to me, she has been my friend and confidant in good times and bad times.
I look up to her because she is a tour de force and is a true example of a survivor. Her strength and passion have never led her astray into darkness like many wounded female artists who end up in so much trouble and lose their way. I find this truly remarkable about her as a woman and as an artist in a male dominated industry. Most new Female artists try to be like her or be her as if she could ever be replaced. Through it all she still manages to come out on top and show them all why she is on top. There’s only one Madonna and this makes her my #1 Icon.
Long Live The Only Queen Of Pop!!!
