5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it !, 3 Nov 2009
This is an essential read for all Madonna fans and for anyone interested in fame/ family relationships. I couldn't put it down. I was left with great empathy for both Christopher and Madonna, they are very similar,both with a lot of talent - she became the mega famous one though because she had the necessary ruthless streak. Some of the stories are very funny, like when they are stuck in the Morrocan desert and she later has a three hour tantrum to her manager !

Then buy this album ! Hello to all the true Madonna fans out there, I bought this CD as a treat after seeing it advertised on TV, I've got all her main albums but what swayed me was seeing that it contained "Celebration", which I've been hooked on since it came out, and also "Who's That Girl" and "Beautiful Stranger" (I haven't got GHV2 yet.) This is a real gift for the fans, I love the artwork, the Warhol style poster inside and most importantly the songs ! In my opinion nothing has been left out, and the order has been carefully thought about - CD1 is a nonstop party and CD2 has the more emotional songs - it all flows together brilliantly ! The two new songs already sound like classics… Read more
