As Susan Sontag observed, “Camp is the outrageous aestheticism of Sternberg’s six American movies with Dietrich.” It’s also Madonna putting on her finest Marlene Dietrich drag and camping the hell out of a medley of “Like a Virgin” and “Falling in Love Again (Can’t Help It).” So what better way for this corner of the internet to celebra-ate the Queen of Pop’s birthday than with
hydrangeas this vintage performance from The Girlie Show?
Sure, the look is from Morocco even though the song is from The Blue Angel, but no matter. Das Akzent ist erhaben, ja?
Happy birthday, Madge!
