madonna to be inducted in to the rock & roll hall of fame

As if there was any doubt when Madonna was included in the list of nominees for the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.  Already a member of the UK Hall of Fame, Madonna now gets the recognition she deservers here in the States.  

The 2008 inductees are trailblazers — all unique and influential in their genres,” Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Foundation President and CEO Joel Peresman said in a statement. “From poetry to pop, these five acts demonstrate the rich diversity of rock and roll itself.”

To be eligible, artists must have issued a first single or album at least 25 years before nomination.

Madonna Louise Ciccone signed with Sire Records in 1982 and became one of MTV’s first stars two years later with “Like A Virgin.” She has constantly altered her image and appearance ever since, showing staying power that few 80s stars could muster. ’

From rosaries and bare midriffs to cone-shaped bras, Madonna’s reinvention of herself has been as prolific as her chart dominance, which included seven No. 1 hits and three No. 1 albums in the 80s alone.

The actress and fashion icon created plenty of controversy along the way, drawing the ire of religious leaders in 2006 for a scene of Madonna on a mirrored cross and wearing a crown of thorns as part of her worldwide “Confessions Tour.”

Here is the full article about Madonna and the other inductees.
