Madonna is not necessarily a favorite of famous feminists. Both Camille Paglia and Germaine Greer have weighed in on the singer's half-century mark this week: Paglia rags on the Material Girl for her looks ("hard-bitten face lolling its tongue like a dissolute old streetwalker") and Greer for her clothes and her choice to have children later in life ("She is the elderly mother of Lourdes, nearly 12, Rocco eight, and David Banda, nearly three.") Really, ladies? You had to go there? [Salon, The Sun]
