Madonna’s thoughts on Lady Gaga’s “Born This way”
Senior reporter Jacob Bernstein hung out with Madonna for an upcoming piece in the January 30th issue of Newsweek, and got her thoughts on Lady Gaga’s ‘Born This Way.’

I thought, this is a wonderful way to redo my song (‘Express Yourself’). I mean, I recognized the chord changes. I thought it was… interesting.

Thanks to Jacob Bernstein

Chrisjcxa on Madonna’s music career
Chrisjcxa evaluates Madonna’s music career…

Occasion: Madonna’s upcoming 12th (or rather 13th to be exact) studio album release.
What this is: A presentation of Madonna’s studio albums and the evolution in her works.

This is not exactly a review, an evaluation, and it’s not about Madonna’s whole body of work as an entertainer and its impact. Just presenting each one of her studio albums in the most comprehensive way possible.

Right under the presentation of each album I provide a link to a YouTube playlist I’ve made for the specific album. I have rearranged the track listing of the albums. Enjoy!
