Madonna is among those up for consideration for induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
The reigning, undisputed Queen of Pop first burst into the New York City music scene as a cult figure in 1982.
Since then she has traveled a path toward true icon status, pushing buttons and ruling dance floors around the world with a sound and style all her own along the way. She has been imitated, but never been duplicated. And she has re-invented the notion of “staying power” over and over.
There are nine artists being considered for induction into the Hall of Fame in 2008, including the Beastie Boys, John Mellencamp, and Donna Summer.
The final five honorees will be announced in January – and you know who had better be on that list.
