Material girl to Geisha girl. 

Madonna is the mistress of reinvention. And behind every change of image -always total, always perfect down to the last detail - is a carefully thought-out strategy to get the attention that she wants.   
From the moment the Detroit convent girl hitch-hiked to New York twenty years ago with a burning ambition to be the world's most famous woman, she has shown an amazing talent for transformation. 
It is not coincidence that Steven Spielberg is looking for a woman for his adaptation of Memoirs of Geisha. And if her new look is a part Madonna's campaign to secure the part, who can blame her? She desperately wanted the role of Evite Peron in the film Evita, so she showed director she was the perfect choice by adopting an uncanny resemblance to the Argentinean president's wife.   
Madonna has always been a brilliant consolidator of trends, picking up on an existing look and making it her own. Material girl was not just a clever pastiche on Marilyn Monroe-the platinum blond hair, furs and glitzy jewellery she wore for the video so entranced actor Sean Penn that he was determined to have her. Another example Madonna is dressing for results. 
When Madonna was expecting her daughter, Lourdes. In 1996 she completely vanished from view. It wasn't until Lourdes was nine months old that she emerges as an Earth Mother, wearing pretty dresses and hardly any make-up.  
What had drawn Madonna to the persona of the geisha, one of the most notorious symbols of the pre-feminist woman, virtually imprisoned in the service of the men? Only time will tell, but one thing is being used in the service of only one person. Madonna herself.

1. Are you familier with Madonna' s musical works?
2. Do you like her songs?
3. Can you name her world famous singles?
4. Do you know any extra information about her biography?
