Q: Pussy Riot member Maria Alekhina has unfortunately been denied parole and a Russian news outlet’s headline “No Russian Feels Any Respect for Pussy Riot” is less than progressive.

(I want to sincerely thank you for your support for social and political justice, specifically the Pussy Riot movement. I’ve been a fan since I was 4 years old.

This woman is hilarious, clever and intelligent. No wonder she has been successful for so many decades. I wish more current pop artists were as honest and open as her.

I love most of Madonna´s uptempo songs. She had access to good songwriters - and she was not so bad herself when it came to songwriting.
Here is a short list of my favorite Madonna songs:
Where´s the Party?, Express Yourself, Into the Groove, Vogue, Hanky Panky, Rescue Me, Spotlight, La Isla Bonita.
Unfortunately, Madonna´s music has gone downhill since the early 1990s.
I really like the fact that Madonna is the polar opposite of a prude. She is not ashamed of or embarassed by her sexuality. Good for you, Madonna!
