I read this quote from Madonna about her new album title MDNA on NME this morning: “It’s an anagram of my name. I don’t really think about controversy, I think about irony.”
Here’s the irony. Madonna doesn’t know what an anagram is! An anagram is the result of rearranging the letter of a word or phrase to produce a new word or phrase, using all the original letters exactly once.
I point this out solely because Madonna consistently talks in the press to her minions of fans about destroying her ego and in fact, she probably has one of the largest egos on the planet. If you ever meet her in person when there are no cameras rolling, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. Sure there are worse people out there in the world, but if you reward bad behaviour, you enable it to continue. If we all talk about how we want to see change in the world, CHANGE STARTS WITH YOU!
And that’s one to grow on!
