  • Like A Virgin is really a portrait of Madonna’s uncanny pop instincts empowered by her impatient zeal for creative growth and her innate knack for crafting a good record. With the unqualified success of her debut album, just who and what fueled the Madonna persona was now clear: she was a street-smart dance queen with the sexy allure of Marilyn Monroe, the coy iciness of Marlene Dietrich and the cutting (and protective) glibness of a modern Mae West. Madonna’s first album succeeded in introducing that persona and, now, with the new album she set out to solidify and build upon the concept. The work, the dedication — the stubbornness — had paid off. Now, it was time to solidify her future.
