    I must admit I'm not terribly surprised or outraged by Madonna. Bowie's music didn't really start selling until after Let's Dance, and to some degree that was aided by the post-disco climate that Madonna's music ushered in. Creatively speaking, I'm much more annoyed by someone like Celine Dion, though her sales figures don't shock me, either.

    Not really surprising, I mean she still around doing concert & dancing around at 50+ lol....

    How can you be shocked? What world have you been living in?

    I think that Madonna's staying power has proved that she's not a novelty.

    Britney has staying power too and she makes Madonna sound like Ella..... it means nothing in this bizarro world we live in.

    All of a sudden I was utterly unsurprised by people's lack of taste.

    Pop music stars always outsell more gifted artists. So what?

    Pop music = 85% marketing, 15% substance.

    Agreed, she's one of the few artists that has changed with the times and kept selling more and more.

    I bet she's adopted more foreign babies and 'slept' wth more celebrities than Bowie, too.

    There are many greater musical injustices in the world.

    Madonna's done a lot more creatively than the current rubbish attests to.

    Regardless, Bowie's targetted at introverted social drifters like you and me. We've never held sway over the sales charts. As others have stated, there's no reason to feign shock.
