It’s that time of year once more; The Queen has turned 54 and as is tradition on Adem with an E, I’m going to celebrate with a day of Madonna tours on DVD, lots of records and cassettes, a cake and – naturally – the obligatory Madonna/YouTube birthday blog-post.
I’ve spoken many times about the affect Madonna has had on me and my life over the years so I’ll spare you the dramatics again; just sit back, enjoy these classic (and sometimes rare) Madonna videos and celebrate The Queen and High Priestess of Pop’s triumphant 54th Birthday.
Happy Birthday my Darling; I love you.

Madonna squirts some smoke from her punani during the Drowned World Tour.
