Paglia -> Ciccone?
I liked this quote from Nathan Rabin's review of Body of Evidence:
I’m not entirely convinced that Madonna wasn’t somehow willed into existence some time in the late ‘70s by Camile Paglia. It’s as if Paglia was sitting around one day and thought “Wow, if only there was one virgin- whore- bitch- goddess- sinner- saint- icon- God who could embody every pretentious idea I’ve ever had. Then I’d be set.” Bam! Suddenly a full-grown Madonna would materialize out of thin air and masturbate with a big black crucifix while dressed as Elvis.More thoughts on Madonna here.
