Happy 54th Birthday to the amazing broad from Bay City, Michigan who set out to rule the fucking world — and did just that. Love her or hate her, you cannot deny her sheer force of BEING. For a creative freak girl growing up in Fresno, California…her very existence proved to me that ANYTHING was possible — and she continues to inspire as she shows us all that life and lust and love and light do NOT end at 50.
TESTIFY, MY FIERCE, MIDDLE-AGED SISTER!
“Not only does society suffer from racism and sexism but it also suffers from ageism. Once you reach a certain age you’re not allowed to be adventurous, you’re not allowed to be sexual. I mean, is there a rule? Are you supposed to just die?” — Madonna Louise Veronica Ciccone
