Why does Madonna have such an aversion against pants? Does she hate the peg-leg so much?

Well I would be so disappointed if she suddenly turned up for a concert in a pair of trousers and an angora cardie! It's not as though she's attempting a classicly girly look; Madonna's a hard woman. The particularly joyous thing is that she has always done interesting things with gender and shows every sign of continuing to challenge, which is why I adore her.

PS: There's a nice article about Madonna here if you don't mind picking through Judith Butler stuff: www.theory.org.uk/madonna.htm

She's not really exceptional. Name me one rock chick who has aged well.

Madonna is a good example of what happens when you have a body fat percentage in the low single figures. She works hard for it, but this is NOT a good look for her.

Ageing rock chicks - Deborah Harry always looked fabulous. She also managed to keep her clothes on, which may have helped.

I agree with Jo... she needs to wear some pants.

Ballet legend Dame Margot Fonteyn (1919-1991) danced until she was 60. But I couldn't find any images to rival the creepiness of this photo of Madonna.
