Courtney Love, Tina Turner and Madonna, Rolling Stone, 1997 cover of 30th anniversary featuring "Women of Rock".
Madonna will be indicted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame today...and usually the artists perform after a special introduction (Justin Timberlake is introducing her). Instead, Iggy Pop is going to perform covers of a couple of her songs...should be fun! Other inductees this year are John Mellancamp, Leonard Cohen, Dave Clark Five.
Pop who is the lead vocal of The Stooges, has been known to be Madonna's opening act at the Dublin date during her Reinvention Tour in 2004. He reportedly has agreed to perform the punked up versions of her hits as a tribute. Meanwhile, both The Stooges and Madonna are Detroit natives.
Madonna is inducted to the Hall for her 25 years of contribution to music industry. She first signed to a major deal in 1982 when she was made an artist under Sire Records. She will on April 19, release her eleventh studio album titled "Hard Candy" via Warner Bros. "The album title is a juxtaposition of tough and sweetness...kind of like I'm gonna kick your ass but it's going to make you feel good. And of course, I love candy," Madonna said of her new record.
