Happy 57th Birthday to Madonna!

The fact that Madonna turns 57 years old today is probably going to make a lot of us kids of the 80's feel old, right? Just how long has she been dominating he charts and been a major player on the touring circuit? Well, on this week way back in 1986 her song "Papa Don't Preach" was at the top of Billboard's Hot 100.  Chances are if you were a teen in the 80's then you remember the video well and also the controversy that surrounded it. Back then discussing teen pregnancy in such an open forum was not really done and the starlet's own personal issues with Catholicism were often discussed. Madonna kind of forced people to start acknowledging issues that until then were more likely to be swept under the rug. It made her hated by parents while being a spokesperson for an up-and-coming generation.
