The only difference between Madonna and, say, Anne Rice (aside from literary talent) is that one used her real name (and associated fame) to sell her book, and the other wrote under a pseudonym (which wasn't revealed until well into her career).
I admit it, though: I'm one of those people who hisses at women wearing fur coats and contemplates splashing blood-red paint all over them.
