no problem

I got lucky, I found a street vendor in London with
a big pile of old music magazines in prime condition

the thought of agreeing with *anything* said on MTV
makes me queasy, but ..

I agree with you totally -- S has got it way over
madonna et al -- I see madonna going thru several of
the "look" "phases" where S has already set the pace
-- but I guess the point might be that S's particular
expression of womanhood / femininity doesn't push the
product -- it's pretty irrelevant to the music.

songs about severed limbs are not a turn-on. (I think ..)

on those occasions when she *does* gussy up, the music's
*still* from a different planet from her "look".

at least, "look" and sound don't jibe in the older music.
maybe tho there's a tendency to go with the image-flow
on Superstition. and the Face to Face video is downright
unnatural for her. anybody got any other opinions ?

> And, smart to boot!!

I can dig out some more quotes, S says in general guys
are threatened by intelligent/older women, they'd rather
be with a nineteen-something who giggles at everything.
men's ego's are *so-o-o* fragile ..
