Madonna Q & A : Icon Magazine

Madonna Icon Q & A Issue 22

Well, here it is… After months of anticipation and a gazillion entries from the four corners of the globe. You answered our call, you hip chicks and righteous dudes. You quizzed, questioned and queried. And Madonna answered her little heart out. It’s all here along with a ten page funk-a-delic trip down memory lane. And that’s not all, daddy-o… Madonna also autographed a bunch of groovy prizes for some of you far out fans who sent such cool and crafty questions. Gotta love it!
