    For those of us who’ve grown up with Madonna always near us — in addition to Janet Jackson and maybe David Byrne, there are very few consistently present pop stars alive for Gen Xers — it feels unlikely we could learn something new about her.
    But in the magazine this week, looking at Madonna at 60, I did learn some things. She’s grown ever more remote and has always been a bit inarticulate, even as she stays in the popular imagination and in the rotation of playlists. It’s interesting to hear fresh perspectives about the through line that AIDS has played in her life, and about what the limits of ambition are.
    (Surprise, though, and a spoiler — Madonna absolutely despises this profile, viciously and graphically described on her Instagram, though I’m unclear on why. It’s often awful to be written about! It’s a very normal reaction, and I think it’s amplified for people who are very regimented and used to being in control of their lives.)

    Backdrop for Sticky & Sweet Tour “Vogue”?

    (She also has a beautiful Testino still photo from the Evita era where she is wearing a black veil, but the lace is not patterned like this.)

    It also reminded me of this one taken by Alek Keshishian
