This is a picture of Madonna at the Grammys. Check out the outfit, the chains, the poles and the rest. Is this really necessary? Is this art? Is this a suitable example for young girls? What's the point?
Whatever her musical talents (a debate I'll leave to others), Madonna's other "contributions" to the culture have been sleazy dressing and hypersexification. There's little left that could really "shock" anyone anymore. But that doesn't mean she won't keep on trying . . . cheap thrills are, apparently, her stock in trade. Just how badly can any one woman crave attention?
