Madonna, One Week Away from 62nd Birthday, Reminds Fans She Made it On Her Own Without Any Help from Anyone


Madonna is one week away from her 62nd birthday. She’s supported Louis Farrakhan and in the last few weeks also crazy Dr. Immanuel, the demon sperm doctor.

She hasn’t had a hit in a long time. But she’s made hundreds of millions of dollars, and was once the Queen of Pop. So she wants to remind us she did it on her own. She posted a picture of herself circa 1985 and wrote: “No YouTube, No Vine, No The Voice, No American Idol, No Disney. Just $35 and a dream.”

Madonna did it all on her own. No songwriters, no producers, no Seymour Stein or Sire Records at Warner Bros., no Liz Rosenberg, no other publicists, managers, Freddy DeMann, no Jellybean Benitez, no fans, no Susan Seidelman. No Guy Oseary, I guess, either.

Just her. Gotcha.
