Iggy Pop’s Tribute to Madonna Was Really a Career Move
You thought Iggy Pop singing a medley of Burning Up and Ray of Light at Madonna’s induction into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame, was a real touching tribute to the Queen of Pop?
Well think again!
When asked how did it feel to finally make it into the Rock and Roll Hall Of Fame himself, he said…

“It’s like Charlie Brown with the football. They keep nominating you. Nobody asked me if I wanted to be nominated, and then you get a bunch of calls the day after saying, ‘So, how do you feel that you lost?’. This happens over and over and over through years of your life!
A couple of years after, I think, the sixth nomination, I said, ‘All right, I’m going to put my foot down to say, What can we do to get this sucker?’
And I started showing up at a couple of Grammy-related events.
We did Madonna’s tribute thinking maybe some of the voters would be there and know who we really were.
Why not? Those honorifics have an increasing power, because of what the music industry has become.”

Debbie Harry: Madonna is Making “Very Good Business Decisions”
Blondie singer Debbie Harry talks about Madonna in a recent interview with Garth Pearce.

“At one of my lowest points, Madonna started her career, and everyone said she stepped into my shoes. I was kind of shocked and not very happy in the long run. But she has been complimentary over the years. That compensates. I have seen her play. I think she is a talented, very organised person who takes no prisoners. She puts on a very showbizzy show. But one thing that Madonna has been very smart about is, that she understood the business and made very good business decisions.”
