Musician 1: I think she is 1)chameleon1 like. I think she has the ability to absorb what's going on around her and make it her own and learn about it and then use it to advance to the next 2)phase of her career.

Musician 2: At certain points in your career, you need different kinds of influences to move to the next level. I think she is smart about what she wants to do, what step she wants to take and the kind of people she needs to surround herself with, people that know what they’re doing in that particular field and she learned from them. And then if it makes sense for what she is trying to do then it works for her.

Musician 3: I think it’s determination and 3)naked ambition. You know, she has a drive and she stays focused until she achieves it. Whether it’s 4)commercially successful or not, you know, she will see it through if it’s her 5)vision.

Fan 1: I like the way she acts because I think all women should be able to act like they want, without been 6)run down by men at all.

Fan 2: Like Marilyn Monroe again, except a much harder Marilyn Monroe.

Maripol (Stylist): What would be more perfect than to have a girl called, Madonna, coming to me to get some my design and having her wear the crosses on her ears and her heart, around her neck and peace sign? Because there was an element of a little political messages to my drawing. I had tons of letters from these young kids. They would call me “Madonna jewelry2 designer” and if anything, I was like “excuse me, I am not Madonna’s exclusive jewelry designer.” But they were so naive3, kids from all over the world would send me letter “I want this cross,” ”I want this,” and the cross was a symbol of rebellion, the fact that you put it in your ears. But it was also perfect. She is Madonna and she wears crosses. All of a sudden she didn’t need all that and out of the window. So that did hurt me because a department store, right when my merchandising line was ready to go into the stores, was...caput this never went nowhere.

And every time Madonna makes another image change, her fans have to play catch up with their hard earned cash. Patrick, Thomas, Jennifer, and Jonathan have 7)collectively spent $20,000 on Madonna merchandise.

Journalist: You’re all loyal fans, does Madonna love you enough because she is fleecing you at the same time she is taking all your money, do you feel bad about that?

Jonathan: I don’t feel like she is fleecing us. She’s been a contribution to our lives as far as bringing different points of view, and different artistry and music into our lives and I think that’s a blessing4, if anything.

Thomas: I feel that she gives us really all that she can, I mean, she is always making more albums for us to listen to, more and more videos.

Journalist: Albums to buy as well. You’re not just getting them for free, are you?

Jennifer: We used to do performances at a club out in Long Island. And it was a matter of time before we had a bunch of young girls dressing5 like her. We had to kind of push it along a little bit, you know, “$20 here,” “$30 here,” “why don’t you go get a dress like that?” “why don’t you...” You know, we started it just like Brian Epstein paid people to scream for the Beatles, I mean, we began to get a following and to have girls 8)emulate6 her.

Patrick: Any artist is taking their likeness7 and putting it on a T-shirt, or on a cap and selling it. She doesn’t get all the money, she gets a small percentage of it but there is nothing wrong in that.

Jonathan: I don’t think her whole motivation is being rich, I think it’s just a by-product8 of what she has become. I think what it is, is that she enjoys performing. When somebody enjoys what they do, they are gonna excel, they are gonna succeed, they are gonna do stuff, they are going to reach that plateau. That’s the way I see it, so everything else is just a part of life.

Camille (Madonna’s first manager): Right before the final break up, she came to me and said that “You’re a bitch and I am a bitch, however, we do work very well together, let’s try and make this work out.” In 9)hindsight I know I should have said “sure, yeah”, you know that was it, but I discovered her, I developed her and I basically wanted to manage her.

Burt (Madonna’s second manager): I never spoke9 to her since July 1996. Never spoke to her. I got a call from her secretary. And her secretary told me, “Burt, I have to tell you bad news. ”Oh,” I said, “Can I talk to her?” So she said, “Well, you know Madonna, she doesn’t like to talk about these things.” Which is the truth. She doesn’t like to say goodbyes.

Vinne (Madonna’s friend): You see, if you are not pulling your weight, you are out. Gone. That’s not a control 10)freak, that’s just a sensible person. Someone who has got their marbles in the right places. Because she is up there and done so well, she doesn’t want to risk, ever, slipping down a little bit, that’s why she works so hard, you know?
