In the very beginning Madonna was the ragamuffin girl with the bow in her hair, the piles of bright makeup and the torn tights. Much to the surprise of everyone in the music industry, Madonna did the very first of her MAJOR image changes when she popped up on screen with a pixie haircut and a very lean physique in the summer of 1986. Papa Don't Preach was the first official single from her smash hit album True Blue (Live to Tell was out before the album as a track from the film At Close Range). The song caused controversy for it's "keeping my baby" stance and, for the first time, parents were praising Madonna for a pro-life message, while some women's organizations condemned Madonna for encouraging teen pregnancy. It's a story in a song! Madonna told the New York Times, "Papa Don't Preach is a message song that everyone is going to take the wrong way. Immediately they're going to say I am advising every young girl to go out and get pregnant. When I first heard the song, I thought it was silly. But then I thought, wait a minute, this song is really about a girl who is making a decision in her life. She has a very close relationship with her father and wants to maintain that closeness. To me it's a celebration of life. It says, 'I love you, father, and I love this man and this child that is growing inside me'. Of course, who knows how it will end? But at least it starts off positive." The song reached #1 on the Hot 100, becoming Madonna's fourth song to top the charts. The song, along with the music video, are among Madonna's most memorable and important. Truly a classic by any standards, here is Madonna's giant hit from the summer of 1986, Papa Don't Preach

"Nothing like a good spanky". Oh, my! You saucy little whore!!! Madonna's 1990 album, I'm Breathless (Music from and inspired by the film Dick Tracy) has many, many gems on it, but Hanky Panky was something of a naughty standout. The album featured three songs by Broadway master composer Stephen Sondheim and the rest of the track listing was filled out mostly by songs written by Madonna and long-time collaborator Patrick Leonard. Hanky Panky is a saucy tale of a girl who enjoys a little sadism in her life. The song, like all the songs except Vogue on the album, is in the big band, Broadway, jazzy style to match the film Dick Tracy in which Madonna played the sexy Breathless Mahoney. In short, it rocks!! Hanky Panky was released in the summer of 1990 as the second single, following Vogue, from I'm Breathless and quickly rose to #10 on the Hot 100. No video was made for the song, but this is the performance from Madonna's legendary Blond Ambition Tour. So good you'll want a spanky yourself! Now spend the rest of the day listening to Madonna or you're a heathen. "My bottom hurts just thinking about it".

I always thought #tranny was slang for transmission. As in, "My burgundy Oldsmobile 98 Regency has an automatic tranny."

Transphobia is emotional disgust towards trans people. Ru has accepted EVERYONE. Those that think otherwise are unintelligent. #Tranny

"No, it is not the transsexual community. These are fringe people who are looking for story lines to strengthen their identity as victims. That is what we’re dealing with. It’s not the trans community, because most people who are trans have been through hell and high water and they know -- they've looked behind the curtain at Oz and went, 'Oh, this is all a f**king joke. But, some people haven't... You know, if your idea of happiness has to do with someone else changing what they say, what they do, you are in for a f**king hard-ass road."
AAAAND what? Then Logo decided to get real cute and issue a statement of their own when asked about Ru's response to criticism:
"We are committed to supporting the entire LGBT community and will not feature any anti-trans rhetoric on our shows."
Well, Ru doesn't get cute, she gets drop dead gorgeous, so when she found out that reports were getting out that Logo was "distancing" itself from RuPual, Ru put out this GENIUS statement:
Trust, indeed! If anyone thinks RuPaul is transphobic, they are complete idiots. RuPaul has been a tireless defender and proud member of the LGBT community throughout her career and the fact that it took this "activists" SIX seasons to even notice that the phrase was a part of the show goes to show they have know idea who Ru is or what she stands for. I'll leave you with a little tidbit of wisdom from RuPaul herself:
